$250 12-Team Yahoo 5 x 5 Roto Redraft League

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I've been running a $100 fantasy baseball league on Yahoo for over ten years now, and I've decided to transition into more of a mid-stakes league this year with a $250 entry fee. The upgrade in price has turned a few previous owners away, so I'm currently looking for a few good men (and/or women) to play in a very organized, fun and competitive league. I will be using LeagueSafe for payment collection/processing (you MUST be a United States resident, as we will be using free E-checks for payment collection), and the payouts for the 12-team league are as follows:

1st - $1,800

2nd - $900

3rd - $300

I just filled an entire league with these exact same settings in less than a week's time, but there was so much interest that I unfortunately had to turn some people away. With that being said, I figured I'd try opening up a second league with the exact same rules and settings as my first. Currently about half the league is filled.

The league website has already been established on yahoo and I've included a copy of the settings for your perusal below:

One quick note...for the first time this year, I'm going to a continuous waiver wire utilizing blind bidding ($250 FAAB), which means NO FREE AGENCY. I'm doing this protect the integrity of the league so there is no advantage gained for people who have constant access to a computer and can gain a competitive advantage as soon as someone gets injured or a new closer is annoited. We all have lives and this will make things more fair for all involved by eliminating the rush of being the first to get to a computer.

I have been running fantasy leagues for over 15 years now and I take great pride in serving as a commissioner. I'd like to think I have built up a pretty good track record and have earned a solid reputation as a commissioner, but if you don't want to take my word for it, I'd be happy to provide references to people that have played in my leagues.

As of right now, I have the live online draft scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m. (EST), which is a week before the season starts. A draft order will also be randomly determined a week prior to the draft. This will be done Kentucky Derby style, in that a random selection order will be generated through the random draft order generator and this will be the selection order in which we will then personally choose our draft slots.

If you feel this league appeals to you, please reply back here with any questions (or your contact information). I can also be reached personally via email at:
