GH 2018 Fantasy Baseball League
« on: February 23, 2018, 08:52:36 PM »
Looking to see where the interest lies here.  I have two friends offline that want in.  Along with me, that makes three.  If I can get 10, I'll open up for business.

Awesome.  Tentatively setting the draft for Monday, March 26th at 9 p.m. EDT.  I know the season opens the 29th and that doesn't give much time to look at your roster and make moves, but, I have something from the 23rd to the 26th that won't allow me to participate until that night.  Any earlier in the month and you may miss out on vital injury info or final roster spots.

Got a third offline.  With me, Brant and OJsDad, that's 6.

Speaking of Bison, I need him to renew the league.  Not sure why, as he signed over Commissionership to me, but, Yahoo insists it be the Commish that started the league.

That's a yay/boo for me.  Yay that I don't have to face him.  And boo because I don't have to face him.

quick rules/league question - are defensive stats an option to include in the metrics at all?

Straight 5X5: Runs, HR, RBI, SB, Batting Average, Wins, Saves, Strikeouts, ERA, WHIP.  No defense to speak of.  So, WAR doesn't do you as good as it might in evaluating your guys.
