Dynasty League Has 2 Openings...H2H Points-Based...Advanced Rules

Recommended Posts

The Branch Rickey Memorial Dynasty Baseball League (BRML) is a new brand of fantasy baseball.  If you are the type of experienced Owner who picks his team from a Top 200 Ranking, this League is not for you.  The BRML requires a much greater commitment of time and effort for success.  Now entering its 3rdseason, it needs a couple of replacement owners.  The BRML intends to emulate as much realism as possible. Its format is H2H, points-based, and daily games with a 110-game regular season schedule, a best of 7 World Series, and a September version of the Arizona Fall League. High impact performances win. If you have envisioned a league where scoring bias and MLB team days off do not significantly impact results...if you have envisioned a league where your decision making would be high impact day in and day out...if you have envisioned a league that more closely emulates real major league baseball...if you have envisioned a league where your team could build value...if you have envisioned a league that will completely challenge your fantasy baseball prowess...then you have found it.

There is a salary cap, but it is a soft cap and completely manageable under a comprehensive set of rules. You decide how and when to use long-term contracts to lock in your best players to your organization’s plan…and you pay the price if they do not perform as expected. You decide which players to protect from the Rule 5 Draft. You decide when to pursue free agents in the off-season and when to wait on the Spring Supplemental Draft. 

In the BRML, you build a pitching rotation as you designate a single SP for each game. Great care has been taken to schedule your games for 2019 when your players are playing in actual MLB games. So, while games are daily, there are plenty of off-days so that you do not need to field a team of replacement players on days when a lot of MLB teams have off-days. The BRML result is a 110-game regular season schedule capped by a best of 7 World Series that concludes in early September. Instead of calling it quits at that point, however, we will use the remainder of September for our version of the Arizona Fall League, which we will call the Branch Rickey Fall League, where daily games will resume using only position players with less than 1000 career MLB PA’s and only pitchers with less than 100 career GP for RP's or 300 career IP for SP's. 


If you’ve got the time, we’ve got the League.  You must be willing to invest yourself. Email for additional details…I have found nothing out there that compares.

I've been in leagues on a variety of host sites.  Because this league is unique and different, I chose the site with the best and most responsive customer service...and that site is  If you're used to only CBS or YAHOO, you would experience a bit of a learning curve with the website in this the beginning, I thought the adjustment was annoying.  The truth is that now I love the website (as Commissioner) because it offers lots of flexibility to different things with the scoring mechanism than we would be able to do at CBS or even FanTrax and the customer service responsiveness has been superb, especially in the beginning.  A lot of fantasy owners seem to be married to specific websites...if you are, and that website isn't, then this league probably isn't for you...but not because of the's because this league is about baseball, not a website...the website is merely a tool.  In this league, you will live and die by your decisions...and not by scoring bias or user friendliness or anything else.  I won't was a challenge in the beginning...but it has been worth it so far.  The daily game format make problem resolution critical.  I have helped run a CBS LEAGUE for the past 10 years...and it's great until you have a problem...and CBS has never once responded to a message I sent to Customer Service...not once.
