    4 Dynasty Spots Open In 2nd Year Dynasty League

    Hey, are you interested in joining a dynasty league? Of course, or else you wouldn't be reading this. Our league, Minor League Fantasy Baseball, is made up of 10 members who actively follow their team and stay with the league. We conducted a draft and had our first season in the mid-season sign-ups last year, and this will be our first full year of competition and we are looking for four new members in our 10 team league. The current members of the league do not cheat, do not cause trouble and are active in day-to-day line-up changes and transactions. In order to achieve membership, you must answer the following six questions in this topic, and if I see that you fit, I will drop you an e-mail.

    Here are the questions:

    1. What is your experience in fantasy sports, specifically, fantasy baseball?
    2. What is your favorite team and does this team affect who you have on fantasy teams?
    3. Honestly, how often do you set your line-ups? Make transactions?
    4. Which one of these four teams would you want and why?
    5. Rank the teams you want from the one you want the most to the one you want the least.
    6. Do you have Yahoo IM?

    Here are the teams.

    • 1. 4-5 years with 2 teams every season.

      2.Mets. Not really except for the lesser known but high potenials guys like Maine and Perez last year.

      3.Pretty much everyday unless I'm away from home w/o an internet connection or have a really busy day. However, I do set my lineups as far in advance as possible.

      4. C. Great proven young players entering or in their prime. It gives me the opportunity to concentrate on fewer positions for the future.

      5. C, B, A, D

      6. Yes. But don't use it often as it's blocked by firewall at work. Do have email access at all times (unless I'm in a deadzone).

    • Hey -- I'm more than interested in joining your league.

      Here are my answers to your questions:

      Here are the questions:

      1. What is your experience in fantasy sports, specifically, fantasy baseball?

      I've played since 2000. I think I have a 70% winning percentage with this ID since 2004. I run a very successful keeper league that's in it's fourth year. I know my shit!


      2. What is your favorite team and does this team affect who you have on fantasy teams?

      My favorite team is the Astros. No, it really doesn't affect who's on my team.

      3. Honestly, how often do you set your line-ups? Make transactions?

      Daily. Daily. I want to win!

      4. Which one of these four teams would you want and why?

      Team B is probably the most appealing to me. I feel that I could win it -- It has a solid balance to players, but I could imporve the offense. But I could win with any team, really.

      5. Rank the teams you want from the one you want the most to the one you want the least.

      B
      A
      C
      D

      6. Do you have Yahoo IM?

      No, not now. But I check email frequently. And I have AIM.

      My email is matthewzborowski@yahoo.com

      Anxious to hear from ya.
