  • One of our long-time managers (this is our 6th season) has left us. Well, life happens. But his team is available. Here is the roster:

    C Matt Wieters
    1B Brandon Belt
    2B Aaron Hill
    3B Kyle Seager
    SS Elvis Andrus
    OF Giancarlo Stanton
    OF Justin Upton
    OF Josh Hamilton
    Util Hunter Pence
    SP Stephen Strasburg
    SP Zack Greinke
    SP Homer Bailey
    RP Huston Street
    RP Alex Wood
    RP Jose Valverde
    RP Chad Qualles
    RP Heath Bell
    P Julio Teherán
    P Danny Salazar
    P Hyun-jin Ryu
    3B Nolan Arenado
    OF Norichika Aoki
    2B Howie Kendrick
    OF Adam Eaton
    1B Ryan Howard
    OF Michael Morse
    SP José Quintana

    This team is 9-6-0 after one week.

    Summary of league rules:

    1. We keep over 4 players each year.
    2. For each player we keep, we forfeit a draft pick based on the draft round value of that keeper (with incentives to keep lower round players).
    3. We have a pre-season trading period, as well as trading throughout the season. We can trade draft picks in addition to players.
    4. Draft order is pro draft style 1-12, 1-12, etc. (not snaking i.e. 1-12, 12-1, etc.) and is based on order of finish last season.
    5. No money – we play for fun only.
    6. Stat categories:
    a. Hitting: R, HR, RBI, SB, TB, Errors, AVE, OBP
    b. Pitching: W, L, Saves, K, Holds, ERA, WHIP

    We are a good group of people; the core of our league has been with us from our inception. We are competitive but play for fun (no jerks, screamers, gasbags, clubhouse lawyers, or guys who are 35 going on 16). Most of us play together in other Yahoo fantasy sports leagues.

    If interested or would like more info, please respond here.

    Thanks!

    One of our good managers just dropped out due to a family crisis. This is our 6th season. We have always had both women and men managing teams in our league. We are competitive but our emphasis is on having fun. If you like cut-throat, trash talking, aggressive, no-bull***t, get-out-of-my-way fantasy sports, you would not like us.

    But if you like to win, but play in a friendly, non-threatening atmosphere, consider joining us. (Also: I use this league as a recruiting ground for other leagues, in various sports, of which I am also Commish).

    I will send you an email shortly, and the full information tonight. Thanks for your interest!

  • We have 1 manager vacancy for an existing team our 12-team League, which is in our 3rd season as a keeper league, and in existence since 2008. Please see summary of our setup below. If interested, or would like more information, please let me know as soon as possible.

    1. We keep over 4 players each year. We select our keepers in March, one week before we draft.
    2. For each player we keep, we forfeit a draft pick based on the draft round value of that keeper (with incentives to keep lower round players).
    3. We have a pre-season trading period, as well as trading throughout the season. We can trade draft picks in addition to players.
    4. Draft order is pro draft style 1-12, 1-12, etc. (not snaking i.e. 1-12, 12-1, etc.) and is based on order of finish last season.
    5. No money – we play for fun only.
    6. Stat categories:
    a. Hitting: R, HR, RBI, SB, TB, Errors, AVE, OBP
    b. Pitching: W, L, Saves, K, Holds, ERA, WHIP

    We are a good group of people; the core of our league has been with us from our inception. We are competitive but play for fun (no jerks, screamers, gasbags, clubhouse lawyers, or guys who are 35 going on 16). Most of us play together in other Yahoo fantasy sports leagues.

    Thanks.
