    1 Slot: Advanced near-Dynasty, new H2H

    Proficient owner sought to fill our outstanding group, in the new H2H quasi-Dynasty league entitled Who’s on First?
    Teams are named after your favorite famed Comic.

    Looking for owners experienced in intermediate to advanced-level Yahoo private leagues, who stay active and are proficient (i.e. 60-plus Yahoo rating).

    If interested, please post the full web browser link to your main Yahoo ID/Profile (even if you’d use a newer one in this league), and email contact.

    Our owners live across North America, even across the globe. Many are professionals, in their early 30s to 50s.

    We'll have 14 owners in Who’s on First? Our leagues persist for years, start off strong, return most everyone and upgrade with subs. They are competitive from top to bottom. We are reaching out for only two slots. Others have proved their merit. So you’re joining a new league (thus a full draft) backed by a reliable group of owners and a commissioner with a decade of experience fairly running leagues.

    As a quasi-dynasty, we typically keep at least 2/3 of players in year two, then 3/4 and slightly more each year. Keeper Range (i.e. 15-18 of 25 players) gives you choice. Fewer keepers gets you more draft picks, in later rounds.

    Lineup: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, 7 BN, 5 DL
    Batting Stats: Runs (R), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Sacrifice Flys (SF), Stolen Bases (SB), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP), Slugging Percentage (SLG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS), Extra Base Hits (XBH), Net Stolen Bases (NSB), Stolen Base Percentage (SB%), Grand Slam Home Runs (SLAM)
    Pitching Stats: Wins (W), Losses (L), Complete Games (CG), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Strikeouts per Nine Innings (K/9), Pickoffs (PICK), On-base Percentage Against (OBPA), Winning Percentage (WIN%), Save Percentage (SV%), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)

    To curb SP streaming, there are moves limits of six per week and 100 for the season. Up to 10 trades. Not ‘anything goes.’ Rather, Deals simply need to be “balanced enough” in talent and help both sides fill rather than widen their lineup voids.

    Joining enters you into a network of more than a dozen leagues.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • We're screening a few people, for one definite opening. (other one is fileld.)
      May expand league size by two more, if there are enough verifiably-good candidates.

      If interested, please post your full web link for your main Yahoo ID.
      Be sure that in your team's privacy settings, you set it so the general public/anyone can see your list of leagues (hopefully some private league experience) and teams and your overall rating. Looking for at least 55+ in private leagues, preferably 60-plus to compare favorably to our talented owners.


    • ONE Opening remains.

      We're screening to get someone who fits our dozen other core members, as proficient and persistent fantasy owners.

      On one hand, we have reliable and adept members who stock this league. We're reaching out for a couple new people, and have one outstanding one in. One more to go, for 14 teams.

      On the other hand, you get on equal footing when joining our leagues. These are not 'buddy' leagues. Newcomers are welcome. Not patsies. We want someone who can win the league. Bolster the caliber even more. People have come in from the outside in recent years, some with rather instant success. Whether taking over a team or, as in this case, joining a new league.

      Looking to hear from you -- about your experience in private leagues and level of proficiency
