Real Man's League Payouts
First things first !!! Welcome to the Real Man's league. A league for only the most dedicated fantasy baseball players . Nate and I will be your commissioners . We do have a group page on Facebook for chatting and trade offers.
So let's get on with the constitution!
We will be playing on fantrax premium which will cost $6.66 per person which we have to pay by April 18th I believe..
League fee is $40 but Nate and I want super dedicated players so we will be asking for year 1 & 2's payment. Year one will be paid out
To the top three teams. 1st $300 ,2nd $140 , 3rd $40 . Your second year payment will roll through to the next year. Money will be paid through fantrax treasurer.
Draft will be held Saturday March 23rd at 6pm eastern. So league fees must be paid in full and week before then.
We will be doing a 35 round draft. First 30 rounds will be for mlb players who have achieved that threshold. So no Vlad jr, kukuchi until MiLB draft which will be from rounds 31-35.
Roster positions are C,1b,2b,SS,3B,CI,MI,4OF,2UT ,6SP, 3RP ,8 Bench .now after the draft you can drop some mlb talent to stash more prospects. You will only be able to have a maximum of seven rookies during the season. We will be using F.A.A.B (free agent bidding) for moves. You get seven a week and $150 in Faab $ to spend all year (including playoffs) . Can do zero dollar bids if you want but you may miss out on players. Any player drafted or signed to mlb whether it's the highschool/college draft or international signing can not be added during the season unless they make it to the pros . Those players will go into a five round rookie draft during the off-season which will do via Facebook. This will be a keeper league. You keep ten MLB players and must keep five MiLB prospects. we will do the prospect draft before the keeper deadline of course so you can see if you want anyone different.
Now year two draft and beyond since you'll have ten mlb and five MiLB keepers you can draft whoever you want from the MLB/milb Field but remember you can only have seven prospects so if you decide you like two more rookies out there feel free to add them. We will have four DL spots.
This will be a head to head , 7x7 catorgories league.
Cats are as posted for offense Runs, RBIs, homers, on base%, stolen bases -net, total bases, strikeouts
Pitching will be K's,era,whip, Saves+holds,wins, quality starts , batting average against.
Will be two divisions of six . Top two division winners getting top two seeds. Pretty much it! If you have any questions feel free to go through the rules or ask bate or myself. Goodluck to all.
Have four great owners so far so looking for eight super competitive players who plan to stay long term . If no experience on fantrax I insist on checking it out before wanting to join because it is different than Yahoo and ESPN. Also the $6.66 fee per person for the premium features has been waived by fantrax itself for the first year. So if interested let me know your experience and what not. Thanks!
