  7. We play for fun, our love of baseball, and to indulge in our need for even-handed competition in a challenging, leveling, custom built format. We’re not for everyone. 35th Consecutive Season: Head-To-Head, Mixed, Auction, Keeper League. We need one Replacement Owner. This is a General Manager type league, not a daily lineup manager style. Double the number of active roster slots (24 Hitters and 22 Hurlers) per team, so lots and lots of stats, which has the same leveling effect as 162 games in The Show. Our Pennant races are often tight. Also every team is in our Playoffs. Deep League player pool penetration is achieved using extra active roster slots per team, because the Quality of Owners is more important than the Quantity of Owners. It’s easier to find and keep 10 owners with double rosters, than 20 good team owners with the standard number of active roster slots. No Bench. Everyone plays, except those on DL or in the Farm. Can’t hide players from your opponents via a Bench. Keeper league, but not too many. Farm, but not too deep. Our Categories are deliberately set up in opposition to one another, making for more varied strategic and tactical decisions. $15 League Fee goes to server. H2H- A single win each week. Keepers- Max 15 MLB, 6 Farm; No Minimums 10 Teams, but Deep, as each team has 46 active roster slots. Twice the typical league. Mixed NL and AL Auction OnLine- Our Auction Day is Sunday, March 29, 2020 beginning at 1:00 p.m. EDT. In-Season Acquisitions: three opportunities each week for Free Agent Acquisitions based on reverse order of the standings, a single acquisition per team per round; MLB style Waiver Claims once per week. Reverse order of the current standings for priority for in-season Free Agent Acquisitions and Waiver Claims. One Successful Request per team per round. OnLine Off-Season 30 minute Trading Party two hours before Midnight Freeze Roster Deadline on February 29, 2020. We despise Ghost Teams, owners who give up and stop actively making moves during the season. Farm Players can be acquired both during the season and during our 10 Round Farm Draft one week after our Auction Day. Max 10 Farm roster slots during the season. Max 6 Farm Keepers.

Can’t hide players from your opponents via a Bench. Keeper league, but not too many. Farm, but not too deep. Our Categories are deliberately set up in opposition to one another, making for more varied strategic and tactical decisions. For instance. you’ll need both IP and Ks which you must balance against ERA and WHIP. You need BA, yet you need PA too. Quantity scoring categories must be weighed in relation to the Rate ones. Our counting categories make it difficult to skip absentmindedly to a H2H victory after a strong start at the beginning of the week. We don’t use cutting edge sabermetric stats as league scoring categories. This allows anyone and everyone to easily figure on the back of an envelope from the box score the net effect of a single game on their team. Instead, competitive teams in Stir Not use their own skilled analysis of the game’s internal sabermetric numbers to predict playing time, role, and future impact on our 15 scoring categories/bottom-line stats. Sure, the above details may sound overwhelming at first glance, but we promise there aren’t any rocket scientists in our League, just people who love baseball and love to compete. Like everything else in life our owners learn by doing. To learn the best way by playing in your first season it will only cost you fifteen bucks (the cost of our stat service). We have found we can enjoy a unique League as an add-on to your existing leagues. Here are some of our details. Don’t choke on the bones. H2H- A single win each week. Keepers- Max 15 MLB, 6 Farm; No Minimums 10 Teams, but Deep, as each team has 46 active roster slots. Twice the typical league.

  13. The other formats are best for gamblers who prefer slots and roulette. The auction format, limited to 10 to 12 teams, is more for poker aficionados. Auctions---live ones---are the best kind of psychological high stakes poker. Experiment with us on the cheap.
  14. Three reasons. 1. In concrete terms in our League Mike Trout is available in our Auction Day Pool. So is Machado. And so is Jose Ramirez. So are Nolan Arenado, Trea Turner, and Francisco Lindor. I could go on and on. Everyone is on equal footing because they have a chance to get any player, no matter what their draft position is. If you get stuck with the 12th pick in a 12-team snake draft league, you have virtually no chance at any of the game’s top 2 or 3 best players. In an auction, you have as good a chance as any other owner to land the best players - as long as you're willing to pay the "market price." Draft position simply doesn't matter, so only nominating in an Auction evens the playing field tremendously for every team. Auctions then are More Fair: Why should some random process determine who gets the best player or No. 1 pick. In an auction ALL PLAYERS ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL OWNERS. Okay, what else? 2. During an Auction there is more action, more intrigue, more strategy, more head games, more game theory, than in between your team’s serpentine Draft Picks. An Auction is more dramatic. Hands down. 3. Not only is every player available to you, so is every strategy. In an auction, you're in control. You have a budget, sure, but it's up to you how the money gets spent, therefore it's up to you what positions you accentuate and ignore, it's up to you whether you load up on stars or play it safe, and it's up to you whether you grab a ton of players early or wait for the bargain bin. Auction leagues are for anyone who ever looked at his or her draft position and thought, "I'm completely screwed before my first pick is even made." In Snake Drafts your Draft position often determines which tactics and strategies are in your tool bag. We have one Replacement Team slot left. Why should you try our Auction League? Because it will cost you only a couple or three of lattes to get the genuine Auction experience: $15 for a superior stat service. And after you decide you like it and have learned through experience, you don’t have to worry that our league may be here today and gone tomorrow. This will be our 34th consecutive season. Send me a direct message and I’ll gladly supply more information, but let me stress unequivocally that this is not a long range rehab or makeover team. You’re going to like your 15 Keepers. Thanks for considering us, James Commish
