2016 Grogheads Fantasy Baseball
« on: March 14, 2016, 03:59:56 PM »
The league is now up and operational.  All past managers have been sent a reminder with a link to the game.  If you are interested in joining the league and are having issues, leave a message here and Metaldog (assistant commissioner) or I can help get you into the league.

League URL:
https://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/grogheads

The league will auto draft in about 15 days, but first we need an even number of teams.  So far 7 of last years managers have signed up.


EDIT:

This is the URL to join the league:

Geek,

One of the stipulations this year is, wherever possible, your team must consist entirely of Japanese players.  Good luck. O0

OK.  I'll cue the draft to happen this weekend.  That'll give everyone about a week to scrub the free agents before the start of the season.

I'll be setting the league ready to draft on Saturday evening.  Last chance to rank and order your draft.

It's cute that you think my ranking of players will in any way affect whether or not I finish in 8th, 9th, or 10th...  ;D

I just let the computer pick. Then I have a ready made excuse for why my team sucks!!!!!

Fantasy baseball is so different from Fantasy football in that way. The season is so long, so many players get injured then come back, veterans hit the career wall and just suck and there are always new 'stars' each year that nobody drafted and are available 1/2 way through the year that your initial draft is not nearly as important as it is in football. It is way more important to manage your team in baseball.
