2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

Soliciting interest.
Always a fun time and low stakes $25.

I have some money to lose back to the usual fantasy winners since I lucked out in the football league this year.

i'm in as long as it's not a super-complicated league that takes hours to manage each week...

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

I'm in as well and willing to manage and escrow the life changing money we are playing for (since I already have most of the paypal contact info).

We've done Head to Head points leagues in the past. Last year I set a limit on transactions so we don't have someone going crazy in transactions with daily roster changes.

We could do a roto league this year to change it up, 6x6 categories, and have rosters lock prior to first game on Monday to simplify it even more if we want? In that type of league, we can have unlimited transactions, since rosters lock.

Thoughts on what we should do?

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

i'll do either a H2H or roto, but i would actually prefer roto because i think that more fairly rewards the team that actually has the best season.

also, i'm fine with $25, but would be willing to go all the way to $100 if everyone agrees. (i know, i know, i'm a baller...)

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

6X6 Roto looks good for a change
unless we get more players this year and then I'd say H2H . I like the roster lock with unlimited transactions

Luckily there is a non-nit baseball expert on the podcast so we only need one more for 8

You would think ross would want to join so he could have a team full of the "Chicago's" players

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

it was on ESPN last year, assume it'll stay on there (adam doesn't have to set it up so no problems!)

Yeah, I'll set it up next week. I have no internet at home currently, but that should be fixed soon.

I'll track down pope to make sure he can still set this up. Anyone have any objection to the draft being Thursday at 930PM EST?

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

League is set-up.

6x6 weekly categories H2H.
Unlimited transactions.
Week locks prior to first game.

If anyone wants to make a case for something else, I am open.

Link to overview of categories: http://www.espn.com/fantasy/baseball...ntasy-baseball

Draft Date: Wednesday 3/29 @ 9:30pm EST. We can move it later if that doesn't work (I can't on Thursday evening).

60 seconds per pick so we can get done quickly.

Working on invites.

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

Yeah, its ROTO, not points.

But if we want it season long instead of weekly, I can easily change.

Look at the scoreboard page.

You get 1 point each week for each category you win. I'm not much of a fantasy baseball player, so if I did something stupid, let me know.

Re: 2017 Pokercast Fantasy Baseball League

Rotisserie Compete against your whole league all season long, trying to rank the highest in each stat category.?

Head to Head Points Face-off with one opponent each week, trying to score more total points.?

Head to Head Each Category Go head-to-head with one opponent each week, earning a win or loss for each stat category.?

Head to Head Most Categories Go head-to-head with one opponent each week, earning a win if you win the most categories.?

Total Season Points Earn as many points as possible over the entire season to win the championship.

So Roto can only be season long?
