Well it looks like baseball season is going to be a bit more normal this year, so who is a go for a little Fantasy Baseball???

Kent (05Venturer) was the League Champ last year, so the target is on his back! Everyone last year is welcome back as everyone paid up!

Back to 2019 rules with a full season...you send 11 sticks, 10 for the overall winner and 1 Super Premium that the leader at the All-Star Game gets. I usually split the final sticks roughly 70-30 to the winner and second place.

Previous League Champs:

Here are the 10 players from last year. Please confirm in the thread that you want to participate this year.

I will consider adding players if somebody drops out or if there are pairs so we can keep an even number and not have bye weeks. There will have to be some feedback or referrals to join as we have had non-payers before.

Looking forward to this return to normalcy. Who is in!!!???

A side note, are you considering any extra DL spots to deal with Covid roster issues this year?

Just as bad as non-payers is folks who give up on the league and don't participate after a while. I would consider abandoning your team to be a reason to never be allowed in the league again, if not a justification for negative feedback.

 I think people leave for different reasons. If ur frustrated because ur team isn't winning well maybe the problem is you!  But since we are not a legacy league and auto draft you get a fresh start each year. 

For me it’s like you said, People who just quit mid season

Sometimes things happen in life and this becomes less important. If it were someone who had 1 bad season due to personal issues, that could be forgiven. But you're right that habitual loser's lurgy makes a frustrating season for others.

Considering the continued influence of COVID I feel we should expand the IL to account for a few more slots where COVID is the reason vs an actual injury Just a few

Cfickter - 3/9/2021 5:29 PM Considering the continued influence of COVID I feel we should expand the IL to account for a few more slots where COVID is the reason vs an actual injury Just a few

While I agree that adding a couple spots for COVID is a good idea, I don't think trying to enforce a COVID designation works well in practice. I doubt that the site is going to be able to differentiate IL's by type, so it would be up to the Commissioner, Michael, to enforce those. After helping to run my FFL league last year with the same concept, I can tell you that it was a nightmare to try and keep up with who was on IL and for what reason and that was for only 17 NFL games. 

If we go with the extra spots, I think we have to limit it to a reasonable number, maybe 5 in total, and just accept that those spots can be used for anyone with an IL designation.

 In reading the site rules Kerry is correct they upped the min IL positions from 1 to 3 for COVID 

So jumping to 4 or 5 would be good by me

Also if we add teams I would like to see it in pairs so there are no bye weeks. That just messes with the flow of everything.

I have scheduled an auto pick draft for Sunday the 28th. That gives everyone a chance to get orders if they want set and close enough to the season to accommodate any injuries or major roster changes. I am working on adding the slots for extra DL slots, can't do it through the app so I will let you guys know. If there are any issues with this draft time or anything else let me know ASAP.

I was able to logon
What about renaming the divisions? East and West seem so boring. What about
Madero and Habano?
Robusto and Toro?

Ok, maybe retiring has left too much time on my hands

I could not get any answers on adding IL spots but we do have 3 and 4 bench spots so hopefully that should keep us moving along.
