General Message Board
The idea of the league is to pick your favorite team, and your roster is the 25 man roster of your MLB squad. You are expected to make the roster changes when the roster changes are made, and make the trades when the trades are made. If you make a trade with a team that is not in the league, you simply drop the players you traded away and pick up the ones your team acquire, etc.
I am 5 away from 20 active managers...I have sent out invites for the active managers from last year to re-join, but it is first come first serve. But please only join if you are serious about fantasy baseball and if you are on Yahoo Fantasy baseball daily. Beware that I will drop you and replace you with a different manager if you do not keep up with the roster moves.
The teams available are:
I need 2 more NL teams and 3 more AL teams. Post your e-mail and I will send you an invite or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, I will manually upload all of the rosters once they are announced. Obviously, there will be no draft. And the format is H2H-1 Win.

No offense intended, but....are you mental?! I mean, I truly appreciate the idea and the obvious work you are putting into this, but how do you expect this to work or for there to be an even playing field unless you handicap the teams based on their payrolls? That's what makes Fantasy Baseball so appealing is that everyone gets a fair shake. The Yankees have nearly 6 times the payroll of some teams! That's why "real" baseball is so broken. Can a Yugo keep up with a car that has an engine with 6 times the horsepower? Fun idea, but without handicapping, SO not fun for the "little" guy teams....favorite or not.

Are YOU mental? Payrolls don't win championships, chief. It is not intended to be like regular fantasy baseball...I play in 10 of those leagues...this one is different. If you don't like it, don't play.
