  1. I would love QS over W's.... I don't get leagues that use W's these days.... Don't think 12 is a go though?
  2. Ah, W's over QS's doesn't do it for me. I'd also prefer a full 12, but let me know if you guys get there!
  3. As long as it's decent categories, Quality Starts.... mikeyymarino@gmail.com
  4. 12 teams or more preferable, post 'em here; please let me know, thanks!
  5. OK, wound up starting one, here's the link & details - https://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/169436/invitation?key=5691026a738a9804&soc_trk=lnk&ikey=4d187218f355b743 12 team, H2H, Category (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, OBP - QS, W, K, ERA, WHIP, SV+HD)
  6. A bunch have posted... I would just start one up. I was about to on Yahoo but then figured people prefer different sites.
  7. I'd be in for an auction tonight. Preferably not points, but I'd be interested.
  8. Anyone up for an auction this morning while waiting until 1pm first pitch?? (12 teams, H2H standard 5x5 or 6x6)?
  9. Seems every auction tonight keeps failing. Anyone interested in a standard Yahoo H2H auction (12-team)? If so, I'll set it up now.
  10. Haven't seen any posts for a H2H Auction tonight... any interest?
  11. Love prospects & minor league baseball? Love franchise GM strategy & salary cap/contracts? Looking for a long-term commitment & essentially 12-month fantasy baseball? Then you’ve come to the right place! We are at 17-18/20 members, so 2019 is a go - some owners have taken over 24 hours to pay, so we are now forming a replacement wait list so that the draft can begin immediately. Note: due to the delayed start, our initial MLB auction is likely to run a little past opening day. However, you should be joining this league for the long-haul anyway so 1-2 weeks in a Franchise league like this should not have a significant impact. (http://prospectball.proboards.com) That’s the only sales pitch I’m giving, except I truly hope this gets filled with owners looking for a fun, competitive league - emphasis on having fun. It's a realistic GM experience meant to mimic a real-life Franchise & the decisions they must make. Note: Our Initial Drafts have NOT started yet. Therefore, you are getting in on the ground level. Brief summary of the league: - 20 Teams - $100 Buy-in - Salary Cap / GM Franchise Realism League - Fantrax for scoring/roster management / ProBoards for drafts, communication, auctions, promotions/demotions, etc. - Year-long commitment: First-Year Player Draft, International Signing Period & Minor League Free Agent Draft - 40-Man Roster (w/ Promotions/Demotions & Paid Minors) - 25-Man Active Roster - 200-man MiLB Prospect Roster (no salaries for these players until promoted)- H2H Categories Offense - R, H, RBI, HR, TB, BA, OBP, SB Pitching - 3*QS+1*W, ERA, WHIP, K, BB, 2*SV+HLD, OBPA (On-Base Percentage Against) - All Playoff Teams win money, Division winners, etc. - Two-week playoff matchups (8 teams make playoffs) - Teams 9-20 compete in the Supplemental Playoffs for draft picks in Rounds 1-10. Free agency is held as public auctions on ProBoards, Year2Year contracts, Extensions & Options allow you to grow your 40-man & minors system to your true appeal. Teams are incentivized to not tank thru a supplemental playoff bracket that occurs resulting in supplemental draft picks (beginning in the 1st round, which means a Top 50 prospect) This league will feature outstanding organization via Google Sheets, data-driven and 24/7 up-to-date roster info, projected free agents, draft results, etc. Therefore, do not let the complexity scare you away if it all sounds good thus far - all the information will be there for you! The way the contracts are structured, even though it looks and sounds complex for a league as a whole, you have to actually try to mess up a squad so badly that you’ll want to leave it. Or, in all likelihood, the Trade Committee would just not allow the trades to be processed. (We’re here to help!) The only reason I know a league like this is even feasible/capable is because I participated in a 300-man roster with this same basic framework/structure and it is by far the most fun in fantasy baseball I’ve ever had. Even in my first year being new to a league like that, I think by the end of my very first off-season, I had it down. I struggled all off-season to find a similar league to join, and ultimately decided I had failed and therefore, put in the time to copy/customize their constitution, set up the ProBoards and begin recruiting for this league. There was simply nothing else out there that I could find, even remotely similar. If you’re interested in checking out the league further, please contact me ASAP as we are a go for 2019! (http://prospectball.proboards.com) I very much look forward to hearing and talking with some of you, please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, comments or anything at all!

  13. Head to our ProBoards here for the League Application if you're interested: http://prospectball.proboards.com/thread/24/interested-joining?page=1&scrollTo=210 @skor - Our league is complex and requires Fantrax's premium features, therefore the charge from Fantrax. 18/20 members currently! Draft looks like it'll kick off this upcoming week.
  14. 17/20 members... Waiting list after that. Initial MLB Auction looks like it'll be kicking off next week.
  15. Indeed, it's a 2-year requirement up-front to ensure if we have to replace any owners. I've pretty thoroughly vetted the owners we have thus far, so we're sitting at about 13/20. I just got the ProBoards up a few days ago, so please forgive the lack of convo to it, but it holds all of the rules, etc. and getting on there would be the next step so that I can pencil you in. I was quite pessimistic about launching so late in 2019, but we have a great core group of owners and most have expressed extreme optimism about launching by next week. I don't want to sacrifice the integrity of the league, but it looks like we're looking quite good! Anyhow, the website you'll want to visit for basic info is: http://prospectball.proboards.com/ Specifically, you'll want to post in this thread if you were interested in joining: http://prospectball.proboards.com/thread/24/interested-joining That way I can just add your name and pencil you in for now. I also have the league set-up on Fantrax and can send an invite to that your way as well.
