I wasn't really busting chops on the new format. The mishap was related to getting cars through tech, which would have caused issues under the old format.
We need four good managers to join eight returnees for our Silent Auction league. Please post e-mail if interested. The eight owners are a tough group so competition should be good. Rules overview:
Weekly 7X7 H2H, 30 man rosters plus DLs and NAs, 40 IP innings minimum
Start with $1,000,000
On March 22, all players are put on blind bidding waivers.
Each day, you can put in bids on up to 10 players. Your bids can be as high or low ($0 anybody?) as you want and you can bid on Mike Trout or Mike Carp or anybody else you want. Players who receive bids are awarded to the highest bid; players with no bids are back on waivers overnight. Bidding process continues until teams are filled, and then runs as a regular waiver wire.
Leftover/saved cash rolls into the season as bidding bucks for nightly waivers. (So if you choose to spend little preseason, you can control the in-season wire.)
Can send complete rules/strategy notes. The most effective strategy is to bid early in the process, but not necessarily bid high. (Most of the studs do go Day 1, but other teams have succeeded by bidding $0 on fifth round talent on Day 1 and scooping up remaining studs on Day 2, or sucking up "all" the good 2B and using them as trade bait, or... well lots of different strategies work, but sitting completely on your hands on Day 1 is the only strategy guaranteed to fail. Bid on 10 guys, and you'll be fine.)
From the bottom of your roster.
Scoring Details Done
Each driver can receive a maximum of 90 fantasy points during each race. The top 45 finishers receive points, with the winning driver getting the maximum 90 and other drivers receiving two fewer points for every spot they finish behind the leader - i.e. the second-place driver 88 points, the third-place driver gets 86.
You receive the total points earned by all active drivers on your team provided that they have not already been active in nine races (see Maximum Starts for more information).
Bonus points are awarded to each of the drivers with the four best starting positions after qualifying. The top qualifier receives 10 bonus points, the second receives five, the third receives three and the fourth receives one. Because qualifying for Daytona 500 is broken up over two days, these bonus points will NOT be awarded for the Daytona 500.
An additional 10 bonus points are awarded to each driver who leads at least one lap during a race. The driver leading the most laps during a race will also earn another 10 bonus points. To earn these bonus points for your fantasy team, a driver must be on your team and active during the race.
If a race is officially cancelled, no fantasy team will receive any points for that race. All other scoring rules stay the same. If qualifying or a race is delayed or postponed, no points will be awarded until it is completed.
A couple of questions. Are you trying to pick new drivers or just switch your staters with your bench driver?

I am looking for two replacement teams for our Head-to-Head Points based league. It is an 8 team league that awards points based upon how the player performs and not using categories. It is played just like fantasy football.

I don't see a 3B, are you talking about Callaspo?
I think your choice is pretty obvious, you go Brantley, Zimmerman and Holland.
Forgot to mention, this league is free league and we use FAAB for waivers. You can check out the league page for yourself, id # 12276. Give it a shot, you only need to set your lineup once a week.
Ok, calling all baseball loving ladies. We're looking for two, yes two, more ladies to fill the rotisserie fantasy baseball league. If you love baseball and you think you have what it takes to become a league manager in our co-ed league, or would like to try your skills as a manager, drop me a message or send me an email.
It is a no money 5x5, auction, beginner, mildly competitive, keeper league and we play for bragging rights.
Remember, women only. Thanks. "sopmac2010" on yahoo.
