    2 Keeper League Playoff Teams Available

    Hello, I am looking for 2 members to join my Dynasty League. This is our 3rd year and our 2nd full year (in 2007, we were a mid-season league). The league is based off of the theme of Minor League Baseball teams, Independent League teams and possibly defunct MLB teams. For instance, last year's champion is named the Portland Beavers. They won in a nail-biter over the 1st available team. We are looking for active members that have 2 or more years of fantasy experience and those who are willing to check-in on a weekly basis. In this league, if you are inactive for 14 days, you are put on notice and if you fail to check-in that week, we will find a replacement for you after the 21st day.

    However, this should not deter you. In fact, this is a good thing. After weeding out the inactive members of the first 1/2 year, we have found a nucleus of 8 active managers. We would like to extend invitations to the Yahoo! community and see if we can find active members.

    The teams we have are very competitive teams and should be ready for a championship run this season. The first team was known last year as the Round Rock Express. They finished 3rd place in the regular season and lost in the Minor Series to the previously mentioned Portland Beavers in a very close game. This team needs a few personal touches and can dethrone Portland for the league lead.

    The second team is a bit more of a fixer-upper than Round Rock, but still made the playoffs. Last year, the team known as the Jupiter Hammerheads were able to make the playoffs after being tied with my own team. They won the tiebreaker of fewer losses. Sadface :(. A few additions can be made that can be great, since free agency has not started up for us yet. With the right moves, they can easily go to among the elite in the league.

    The team names are not permanent and can be changed. If you would like to join our league, please reply in this thread these few questions. I will contact 3-4 people that I may be willing to accept.

    1. What is your experience with fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general?
    2. Have you ever been in a dynasty league?
    3. How active can you be?
    4. What team would you prefer (Round Rock or Jupiter)
    5. What would you name your team?

    I hope you would like to join our league. Thanks for the interest.

    Due to space issues, the next post will have the rosters and league settings.

      • We have a core of 8 active managers as well...

        We're looking for 12...possibly 14 teams.

        7 guys have a performance rating of 70% (finish in top 3 over 50% of the time in leagues they are in)...

        if you have some guys who'd want to take a look at our league or need ANOTHER league...

        can post this in your league...

        Our draft is Sat 8pm Central...

        I can do the same for you if you'd like. I'd join your league if I could...already in 4 leagues...

        I would keep you in mind for football and likewise if you do football as well.

        thanks (revelation21_5@yahoo.com)

    • 1. I've been doing fantasy baseball for 3 years and have finished in the top 3 each year. There have been times where i stopped with teams only because the league had very few active managers. All i want is a very competitive league and this sounds like one!

      2. No i have never participated in a dynasty league, but have played it in mlb the show in recent years =)

      3. If i'm really involved in a competitve league like this one seems to be, i check my team usually every single day.

      4. Umm i can take whatever team is availabe, Jupiter sounds like a team i can work with because i'm a wheeling and dealing type of guy and i think i would have fun building a weaker team.

      5. And i do not know what I would name my team, maybe the same as last year, the Jupiter Hammerheads.

    • im very interested in your league im a very active manager... im online everyday.... i have played fantasy baseball for like 5 or 6 years and i have been in a keeper league before but i had to drop because of no internet for a year but i would like to play in your league

    • 1. What is your experience with fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general?
      i have been playing fantasy baseball for years.. cant even remember when i started..
      2. Have you ever been in a dynasty league?
      once for 2 years
      3. How active can you be?
      check in daly
      4. What team would you prefer (Round Rock or Jupiter)
      could care less.. will win it with either team ;)
      5. What would you name your team?
      menominee maroons.. (after the team we have here.. 28-0... BACK TO BACK CHAMPIONSHIPS)

    • 1. What is your experience with fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general?
      > I've been playing fantasy baseball for about 4-5 years. I've been playing fantasy football for a little longer. I'm in an NL-only keeper league that's pretty competitive and several other leagues. I had one terrible league last year, but usually I do fairly well. The last 2 years I've run my own projections and dollar value calculations and have done sabermetric analysis in order to evaluate players.
      2. Have you ever been in a dynasty league?
      Not a full dynasty, but I've been in a few keeper leagues.
      3. How active can you be?
      I'm a very active owner.
      4. What team would you prefer (Round Rock or Jupiter)
      Prefer Round Rock, but I'd take Jupiter.
      5. What would you name your team?
      Charleston Wheelers after my hometown team. My favorite player of all time played for them - Motorboat Jones. He hit a triple and tossed me a foul ball on my 11th birthday. He was awesome.

      3. How active can you be?
      4. What team would you prefer (Round Rock or Jupiter)
      5. What would you name your team?

      1) About 6 or 7 years

      2) No

      3) Very active, daily manager

      4) Round Rock, but I don't Care if a have to get the other one.

      5) Buffalo Bisons or Lancaster Jethawks

    • Would like a chance to join this dynasty. My experience with fantasy has been good. I have been in some private leagues in the past but I don't believe they were considered dynasty. I'm an active daily manager. Your right, Hammerheads need more work then the Express, however, it doesn't matter to me which team I would inherit. Not sure if I would change the team name because I'm unfamiluar with minor and independent leagues. I like challenges, I'm very competative, and ready to be a manager in a league where a majority members show up year after year. Thank you for the open invatation and I hope to hear from you.

      2) no
      3_) very active
      4) Round Rock
      5) Bow Down
