(Should I add another DL slot?.....)

This sounds so cool and mysterious.
But I'm just glad I (finally) know what off-side means, I'm staying well out of this.
Have fun y'all, report back when you have a winner!


Don't be frightened Liesbeth, those letters just stand for the regular stuff--

i.e.--C= catcher
1B= First Base, etc.

the stat categories are pretty simple too: R=runs, HR= homeruns, etc.

You should totally play.

i assume, cuz there's no DH, we're goin NL, and the P's will bat? (I'm an AL girl, but one can adjust). Is one DL spot enough?

I didn't write that to confuse Liesbeth-I agree, the girl should play!

It's nether AL or NL; you can choose players from entire baseball universe. There is no DH in fantasy, at least not this league--- I'm not sure how that would work.

I was wondering about the DL slots too...since baseball is like a hospital ward right now. There are a lot of bench spots though.... Should I add another DL?

couldn't hurt.

the rankings are overwhelming to look at- I'm used to ranking by position, and this one is all inclusive. Hm. Must give this some thought.

I been considering the idea of adding a bunch more bench slots, so you can change your starting lineup and play with batter strengths against different teams. I don't want to get too complicated though....just thought it might be fun.

I'll add one more DL slot.

Remember, your pitchers don't contribute to your batter stats.

Alright I'll be the first Euro to jump in, even tho I don't know really enough about baseball. Ah well, someone has to lose! :)

And maybe Liesbeth will bravely follow me.

Hey you guys, I'm considering changing the scoring to Head-to-Head instead of Rotisserie. The sole point for donig so is to facilitate as much trash talking as possible. In Head-to-Head it would be team against team measured weekly.

Anyone have an opinion either way? Pipe up now or, you know, forever hold that peace.

NOTE: The draft has to be completed by Friday, so I'm gong to set the draft status to "Ready" on Thursday night 10pm CST. So get your pre-ranking done!

Hi. Couldja explain this for the dumb ones like me?

I can't draft or anything until Friday afternoon/eveningish (There's a little show in Georgia tomorrow night). That just means I'll get whatever lousy players are left? I don't care too much, I'm anticipating a last-place finish anyway... I just want to make sure I know what's going on.

dchris,

You don't have to worry about the draft, it's gonna to autopick, and I'm gonna set it to go on thursday at 10pm. You can influence, somewhat, who you get by putting your top picks in order-- this is called pre-ranking.

To pre-rank: Log in to the baseball site, click on "My Team", click on "Edit pre-draft Player Rankings" to make your list.

If you want to do this, you have to do it before Thursaday at 10pm. I wish I could give you more time, but the deadlines are Yahoo's.

If you can't rank, you'll still get plenty of good players, but it will use the default Yahoo rankings instead of your own choices.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have!

I agreeeee!!! Head to Head!! How else can I fully display my ignorance of the nuances of the Great Game?

I count 12 teams now, w/ the addition of the scrambled eggs...

btw, say hi to Boudreaux, my mascot, to the left there

ok, I changed to Head-to-Head.

I also added Hits and On Base+Slugging Percentage to the batter stats.

as tempted as I am to take part and enter a world dazzling and new, there is a real life European Soccer Championship going on here, and I have a life somewhere as well.
I would not be able to put in enough thrash talking time, and that's what matters. So maybe next time, and Moni, I will fully support your team of course, thrash them Yankees, girl!
