  1. 11 teams have now paid. Added some extra places temporarily to allow people to take a look; once the next team pays i'll delete those who haven't and the auction order will be set.
  2. 12 team league with the auction on Wednesday at 7:30 EST on fantrax (we're also using their treasurer function for payouts). League is bestball, meaning you don't have to set lineups. Good if you don't want another league to manage in-season but have a few guys you'd like to grab a share of (one reason why auctions>drafts, no chance to get sniped), Main Settings: Score best C, 2 CI, 2MI, 3 OF, 4 UT, 8 P each week from roster of 40. Hitting Walks (BB) 1 Hit By Pitches (HBP) 1 Singles (1B) 1.5 Doubles (2B) 2.5 Triples (3B) 3.5 Home Runs (HR) 5 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Runs Scored (R) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 3 Strikeouts (SO) -0.5 Pitching Innings Pitched (IP) 1.5 Strikeouts Pitched (K) 2 Saves (SV) 5 Holds (HLD) 3 Wins (W) 3 Hits Allowed (H) -0.5 Walks Allowed (BB) -0.5 Hit Batsmen (HB) -0.5 Earned Runs Allowed (ER) -1.5 Home Runs Allowed (HR) -2 Payouts (12 teams = $360 pot) 1st: $170 2nd $100 3rd: $60 4th: $30 Follow the link to check out the full rules (other>league rules summary) and then pay the $30 if you want to join (or quit if you decide it's not for you). I added two spots temporarily so people can have a look. There is 1 open spot, but two teams haven't paid yet so you can secure your place ahead of them by paying. https://www.fantrax.com/newui/fantasy/joinLeague.go?leagueId=baqqgg0tk7jw7f5p&isSubmit=y Feel free to reply to this thread or message me if you have any questions.
  3. 1 spot left. Have added 2 extra spots temporarily so people can check the league out. First 12 to pay are in.
  4. Modified the fantrax defaults so that a double is worth more than a single etc. I've never seen the logic of not doing something like that for a points league. It's still pretty simple and the best real life players are the top point scorers when you look back at previous seasons so i'm happy with it 😉

  8. Just created a weekly bestball (you don't set lineups) points league on fantrax (using the treasurer function for payouts). It's a live auction next Wednesday at 7:30 EST, follow the link to check out the rules (other>league rules summary) and then pay the $30 if you want in or quit if you decide it's not for you. https://www.fantrax.com/newui/fantasy/joinLeague.go?leagueId=baqqgg0tk7jw7f5p&isSubmit=y Quick summary: Score best 12 hitters and 8 pitchers each week from roster of 40. No activity required after the initial auction (except for checking the standings). Points system is SABR slanted without being anything too complicated. If you have any questions feel free to message me

  10. Had one dropout; currently have 13 paid-up members, once next team joins and pays the draft order will be set.
  11. Scored on fantrax and using their treasurer function. Well balanced payouts that will give everyone something to play for, with up to a $250 return possible. Categories have a sabermetric flavor but are all things that baseball fans will be familiar with. Draft begins tomorrow at 11am EST, 4 hours per pick with overnight pause (took about 10 days to finish last year). Fantrax has a pretty good queue function to help things run smoothly and you'll receive email alerts when you are on deck and then on the clock. I'm very experienced in running leagues (am an admin at http://dynastysportshq.com/index.php) and can be counted on to be an active commissioner (answer questions, set playoffs etc.) League is called Homer At The Bat as an homage to the famous episode of the Simpsons which featured the Talkin Softball song. 14 teams, categories are: OBP, SLG, SB, TB (total bases), R, RBI ERA, WHIP, K/BF (basically strikeout %), QS (quality starts), HR/9, K Set up as H2H, each cat is a win and you play every other team each week in the regular season (so 13x12=156 points available each week). So basically it's weekly roto, meaning you can punt 1 or 2 cats and a couple of bad SP starts won't have a long lasting effect. $400 is paid out based on regular season finishes (150, 100, 75, 50, 25) Then 3 weeks of playoffs with 5-8 seeds having a good chance to progress to World Series due to the regular season payouts already secured by higher seeds. 9-12 bracket too. Rosters: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 3 UTIL, 9 P, 7 Bench, 3 IR Transactions: FA bidding twice weekly, waiver bidding once weekly ($200 budget, 5 max per week, more strict during playoffs). No trades. If you are interested then you can reply or send a message on here with your fantrax username/email or reach me at astuzia007@yahoo.com (also feel free to ask questions) Alternatively you can go to https://www.fantrax.com/fantasy/league/mlb/join and enter r7h998hpk6xqlbhr as the league ID and ntobza as the password in order to have a more in depth look. You can see the full details by going to Other>League Rules Summary You'd need to pay as soon as possible to secure your place. If you try to join the league and it says it is full then please reply or message me with your details and i'll let you know straight away if we have a last minute drop out. I've also set up a groupme chat for questions, discussion etc. (just give me your groupme email or post it on the league boards and i'll add you).
  12. One team left. If you go to join the league and it says it's full then leave your details here (or send me a message) and i'll let you know straight away if someone drops out.

Draft begins March 3rd (Tuesday), 4 hours per pick with overnight pause (took about 10 days to finish last year). Fantrax has a pretty good queue function to help things run smoothly.

Categories are: OBP, SLG, SB, TB (total bases), R, RBI ERA, WHIP, K/BF (basically strikeout %), QS (quality starts), HR/9, K All things that baseball fans will be aware of and strongly correlated to real life player skill. Setup is H2H, each cat is a win and you play every other team each week in the regular season (so 13x12=156 points available each week). So basically it's weekly roto, making it easier to punt 1 or 2 cats and a couple of bad SP starts with the gopher ball won't have a long lasting effect. $400 is paid out based on regular season finishes (150, 100, 75, 50, 25) then 3 weeks of playoffs with 5-8 seeds having a shot at world series and a consolation bracket for 9-12. Rosters: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 3 UTIL, 9 P, 7 Bench, 3 IR (daily lineup changes available) Transactions: FA bidding twice weekly, waiver bidding once weekly ($200 budget, 5 max per week, more strict during playoffs).

Deadline to pay the fee is tomorrow night, but sooner is better so the draft order can be set (please quit the league if you change your mind before then so others can join) I've also set up a groupme chat for questions, discussion etc. (just give me your groupme email or post it on the league boards and i'll add you).
  14. ps. If you try to join and it says the league is full then give me your details and if someone drops out i'll get in touch straight away.
