Just because someone won another league before doesn't make them any good at fantasy baseball. They could have been in a league full of scrubs in past years. Your league is garbage anyway. Rotisserie is ancient and outdated, Everyone plays in total points or head to head leagues nowadays... And any league that doesn't limit innings or # of transactions is totally rookie. A fantasy player could drop and add ballplayers on a daily basis to weasel out more points.

P.S. Saying that "Rotisserie is ancient and outdated, Everyone plays in total points or head to head leagues nowadays..." is sort of like saying that no one listens to The Beatles anymore because they are too busy listening to 50 Cent. Just because everyone's doing it doesn't make it a good idea.
It's funny, I've gotten a lot of responses like this. By the time the person is done talking I end up feeling glad that they won't be joining my league because they are clearly an idiot anyway. Where to begin?
1.) I completely agree about winning in a league full of scrubs. There isn't an absolute guarantee that everyone in this league will be really good. But it stands to reason that on average a league full of people who have won a public league will be better than a league full of people who haven't.
2.) H2H is for people who like the luck aspect of fantasy baseball more than the skill aspect. If you meet that description then fine, no skin off my back. Points leagues are boring. There is no need to get a balance between different categories. One could just load up on, say, HRs and ignore SBs. Not as much fun that way I think.
3.) Our league needs no Games/Innings limits because we have weekly lineups not daily. This is the second time that someone has overlooked that fact. Apparently you and your fellow fantasy geniuses are too busy mouthing off to actually look at the settings of the league you are calling "rookie." Go to bed kid, I don't have time for you.
