The main differences are that it's a points league, a 20 man league, an auction draft league, and you keep players forever... so wait... what's the same again??? Um... nothing.

It isn't the same in terms of format, which is fine. The only concern is when guys start choosing between which league they wanna "focus" on. I know that happened a little in some of our many football leagues.

Not sure what you're making reference to, but yeah, it'd be an ineffective method for Year 1, but in the future, it'd be potentially awesome. Your 10 keepers would almost certainly be the best group of 10 that get kept.

And then you just add to them in the subsequent draft.

I've just spun a twist in this game. I think it'll add more fun for everyone...

But I've changed this to a Head-2-Head Points League with 4 Divisions. Each H2H Matchup lasts 2 weeks. There are 5 teams in each division and the top 2 make the playoffs. Meaning there will be 8 playoff teams. Playoffs last 6 weeks (2 weeks per playoff match up) to determine the winner.

I decided to take this route because I felt it would keep more people involved throughout the season. In a 20 man league, once the gap gets too large in a points league... the bottom half of the league (if not more) will tend to give up. ...and I believe our league would turn into that. This alternate gives teams a chance to be one of the top 2 in their division and fight for that playoff spot all the way to the end. Not too mention match up trash talk should become epic. :D

Invites have been sent to those who have submitted their email addresses.

Please do not give your team name a fancy name.

Simply name it: Team "Your forum name"

Example: Team D-Unit

For those of you with abbreviated names that's fine.

Example: Team GF1080, Team PF28, Team Tampa24L

Got it? Now keep it straight.

I'd probably lower games started to about 115 or 120.

You figure 6 games per week for the 10 offensive starting slots x 2 weeks = 120.

As for pitching starts, it should be about 10, IMO.

The other option is preranking your players for the draft. Not sure how fond you are of that or not. But let me know. I think at this point March 15 is going to be the day... just trying to find the best time.

I think it's pretty impossible to pre-rank for this auction. No one really knows yet the value of players. Most auctions don't have 460 players being drafted so any price tag ESPN recommends will be thrown out the window really.

Believe it or not Carl Crawford is not a third baseman.

Well I know that. I know that Tampa has a boner for Ray players, so I thought maybe he would want him.

He cost 2 dollars, so I was happy with the pick.
Yeah, and obviously I let him go for 2 dollars, so I wasn't THAT mad. Just off the top of my head, that's one I wished I went $3 on or waited for you to leave.


FYI, my SS Gordon Beckham is the steal of the whole draft.

Beckham will have a major adjustment period with the bat.

He's had 60 PA in single A...and he was good, but he didn't completely slaughter.

Is he expected to be up with the White Sox this year?

I think he could surprise you.

He certainly could, but he's your starting SS...right now. And the only other SS you have is Brandon Wood.

And Brandon Wood is not good. Just thought I'd point that out.

Why are you going to veto?

First trade of the season just went down...

Veto? Is there a trade?
