    Fans of LAD, NYY, Texas, other elites sought for 2 Exclusive Control Lge slots

    Ever wish you could manage your favorite MLB franchise, in a fantasy league? You can, in MLB Tripleheader. This is a new H2H keeper league, with Exclusive Control over MLB franchises.

    Ten of us each manage one fantasy squad, exclusively stocking it with players from three MLB rosters. No trades or waivers. Only you control those three MLB franchises' players.

    Eight spots are taken. There are merely two openings.

    Available teams include the LA Dodgers, NYY, Texas Rangers, and possibly the Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago White Sox or the St. Louis Cardinals (unless an invitee joins first).

    Looking for superb (i.e. 55 or even 60-plus Yahoo rating) fantasy players who grew up rooting for such teams, or have for many years.

    If that's you, go ahead and join:
    league: 124326; password: MLB2013

    That gets you in, tentatively. We have extra room, and may overfill before choosing who gets the last slots. Yet, once we have two outstanding candidates they might get it promptly. So, wow us about your favorite team as others (more familiar to us) already have.

    Not looking for someone who like many others merely wants to control a certain MLB team's players. We want a sentimental connection, which you'll explain as part of the selection process. You'll want a team with players good enough to base a fantasy squad around. w/all-around fantasy production (SP, RP, power, speed).

    Thus priority goes to a rabid LAD, NYY, SL or Ranger fan ahead of Milw, CWS.

    Already claimed are the LAA, Jays, Red Sox, Tigers, Braves, Nats, Giants and D'backs.

    Here's how our exclusive leagues work:
    We take turns choosing a second roster. In reverse order of a league-wide power ranking, established by each of us rating the other initial MLB teams. This format has clicked well. (Similar league returned everyone for year two.)

    We will 'keep' one or possibly two of those three MLB teams, each season. i.e. keep one for '14, two for 2015 on. Will see what league members prefer.

    This league is run by two commissioners, each who has coordinated a network of leagues. There are inevitably openings in those leagues. (no more for '13) So it's a good way to get in with other outstanding owners.

    Hope you join.
    Commissioners Pete, Karl

    • If you're a strong fantasy player with an extensive, excellent Yahoo record and a diehard fan of LAD, NYY, Texas or Cincy...

      please join, to contend to join and fill this 'exclusive control' league:

      league: 124326; password: MLB2013

      We approved one from the 'outside.'
      We have one opening.
      Possibly two, as one of our regulars is willing to step aside if we get two outstanding candidates. When you join, please stay in until you here from us.

      These invitations to the general public are not first-come, first-serve. But once we get a superb person or two in, we'll close the league and post a message noting it is closed. Until then, the league remains open.

      (See original note for more details.)
      We're looking for a diehard fan of one of those four teams, preferring one w/an extensive and proficient Yahoo record who's able to match wits (in roster and lineup adjustments gauging daily matchups, etc.) with others in a more advanced-level league.
