I have been running various successful Dynasty Fantasy Leagues for Football, Baseball and Basketball for the past 7 years. I have created a new Dynasty Fantasy Baseball League that is set to draft on January 30th at 8:00 PM EST. The draft date would only change if multiple owners can't make the draft and/or no replacements can be found. I will try and cover as much as I can here but please check out the league constitution at the end of this post for more details about the league.
GroupMe is required to be in the league. Makes communicating a lot easier and I will also post important league dates on GroupMe.
Please read below for some basic information about the league.
H2H Points Scoring with 10 Starts Limit for Starting Pitchers per week
14 Team League
7 Teams Make the Playoffs with the #1 seed earning a bye week
Snake Draft for both the Startup Live Draft (on ESPN draft software) and Startup Minor League Draft (takes place on league Message Board and inverse order of Live Draft)
Once everyone has paid their entry fee, joined the league and league GroupMe, the Startup Live Draft slot order will be determined using a draft order generator. Based on that order, each team will then select which pick they want in the Startup Draft.

Can keep up to 33 players on active roster year to year

If you are interested in joining the league and/or have any questions about the league, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If interested in joining, please include how many years of fantasy/dynasty baseball experience that you have, why you'd be a good fit for the league, and what email address I should send the league and GroupMe invites to. I want active owners who are committed to being in this league for the long haul. I am looking forward to filling up this league and getting started!
