    Manage Angels Royals & Pirates...

    Hello,
    I'm looking for a manager for a 3 team league that is absolutely awesome. I had one team drop out and need to transfer the team. I have posted the League rules and how it formed below. If you want this teams, E-mail me at :

    19nolte68@gmail.com

    I will transfer the team to you. You will manage the players on the Angels, Royals and Pirates teams. All I will need is your e-mail address. Thanks!

    Hello everyone and welcome to one of the funnest and best managed leagues on yahoo.

    League # 137527
    Password: 3team


    I have put in place a FAIR league format in which you will pick 3 untaken teams and manage players solely from the 3 teams you pick throughout the season in a Head-to-Head format. This simplifys effort, saves you time, and creates a true team management concept like a real Manager of a MLB team.

    Upon Entry, the first thing you will do is just follow these simple instructions. This weeds out the idiots that may try to join and makes the IQ of the message boards stay above 80.

    I have divided up all 30 MLB teams in (3) Groups of 10.

    PICK ONE UNTAKEN TEAM FROM EACH GROUP. The combination of your A,B, and C group selections will make up the players you manage all year. It is strictly on a first come/first served basis for team selection. Duplicated teams will be deleted.

    The teams are Power Ranked to prevent team stacking like other team pick'em formats. Take ONE untaken team from EACH of the following groups:

    Group A
    ----------
    Phillies(taken)
    Yankees(taken)
    Rangers(taken)
    Angels(taken)
    Tigers(taken)
    Rays(taken)
    Diamondbacks
    Red Sox(taken)
    Cardinals
    Brewers(taken)

    Group B
    -----------
    Braves
    Nationals(taken)
    Reds(taken)
    Blue Jays(taken)
    Dodgers(taken)
    Indians(taken)
    Giants(taken)
    Marlins(taken)
    Royals(taken)
    Cubs

    Group C
    ------------
    Twins(taken)
    Pittsburgh(taken)
    Mets
    Rockies(taken)
    White Sox(taken)
    A's(taken)
    Padres(taken)
    Mariners
    Orioles(taken)
    Astros(taken)

    Next, change your team name to reflect the 3 teams you have chosen. If I can't tell, I'll have to delete your team. We can change the team names later once the league is set.

    When the league is full, I will submit a draft and assign you the top Yahoo ranked players at each of your positions from your 3 teams. This will require some time and effort on my part so be patient. Once completed, I will finalize and start the league. After that, every move and and roster change is up to you. I will take the last 3 teams left as my team.

    You will play one player at each position in the field, and have 6 utility players. You will have 8 Pitchers active, Starters or Relievers is your choice. There are 8 Bench spots, 2 DL slots.
    Here are the (7) Batting stats:
    Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), Extra Base Hits (XBH)
    Here are the (7) Pitching Stats:
    Wins (W), Losses (L), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

    There will be 2 divisions of 5 teams, randomly assigned by order of when you join. Schedules will be randomly set like read baseball...you will play within your division all year, and have interleague play where you will play each of the teams in the other division once.

    Lineup changes are made daily-today, not one day ahead like other leagues. Just keep the line-ups set and a good bench and you'll be OK. No trades will be needed, I'll keep an eye out and switch players if needed.

    Police the league, keep active, and this will be the best league you play in.
    Good luck everyone and Let's Play Ball!!!
