while im going to set up a fantasy baseball team in a couple of days and im wondering if anyone wants to join?

it will be 10 teams with a live draft sometime in march.


right now there are 8 open spots because im guessing that perpetual will want to join

Shaaady Souljah
02-12-2007, 12:47 AM
YES. i would love to get into another league! :)

let me know when the draft will be... thanks.

The Shadyville Sluggers are coming off a huge disappointing year. After dominating the entire regular season, they were upset by a team that got hot when it mattered--in the championship. But that was in my league, which may also have a couple open spots. So maybe if this league fills up, others could fill in the couple gaps in my league?

Yes. I am a big baseball fan. and An Even BIGGER fantasy baseball nerd. :p I will admit it.

If there is still room, I'd like to go in. Never done Fantasy Sports before, but I UrbanDictionaried it, and I like the idea of being represented by actual team members and the like. I just would like to know what exactly is going to happen and what everything will mean before I go in.

yeah, i think "for fun" would be the best route for fantasy baseball... it gets to be a very long season and people often quit before it is all over. the sad truth is: come september, i bet half of us will not still be managing our teams.

but, if all goes well, maybe we could take the same people in the fall and somehow make a fantasy football league for a small cash prize of some kind? that does not take as much dedication or time as baseball.

my football league always plays for money, and the same people do baseball for fun/free...

Mingledon

I think I'm in, then, if it is no stakes.

Shaaady Souljah

I think I'm in, then, if it is no stakes.

i think you will like it mingledon... it is very fun and addicting. i always love playing with first timers. (not because of the inexperience, but because of the real interest/effort they show)

my sister and her fiance shared a team for my football league this year, both first timers. and next year they both want their own team. even my sister loved it and can't stop trash talkin about next year.

*** Let's not forget this was Chuck Norris's thread first, so his league gets priority... But I think the other two leagues would be a good idea as well if we get enough interested people... ***

I signed up!

Reeper, you did not read all of the other posts in this thread. No one else can join now except the other people who have expressed interest. Reeper will be the 10th apparently.

It is nothing against you, but we were trying to let the people who expressed interest first join. But there should be room for you, so don't worry yet...

But this brings up a good point. I think anyone else who has not yet joined that said they would has until a set date to get in (Maybe Monday?), and then it should just be first-come, first-serve so that we are not waiting until the last moments to fill the league.

Smokez
02-17-2007, 10:27 PM
Thats a good point shaaady. l thought they should have a time to decide but couldnt come up to a date but monday will work. So im gonna PM the last people to join and if not by monday its a first come first serve purpose since the Draft is in 3 weeks

Big White sox fan! Wow your in for some trouble this year. 1) Cubs have a hell of a new coach. 2) 125 Mil on Soriano, Prior is healty, Lee is healty. You got some trouble in Chi-Town.

Now onto the only Sox that matter, The Redsox. I've got 3 words for you. 'Big Papi" & "Matsuzaka". Not to mention Varitek ; Ramirez ; Crisp ;Drew ; and Schilling!

Yankees Suck, Johnny Damon Swallows! :eek:

l hate the Cubs. Lou is a good coach and Wood haha got hurt by falling outta a Hot Tub. lf Wood and Prior Lasts the whole season i will be very very suprised. And Yes the Twins vs White Sox will good this year just like always. Hopefully Buerhle figures out what was wrong and they let Contreras pitch like he wants instead of trying to change the delievery. But we Also got Toby Hall this year and John Garland will probly have another great season

Not sure if any of you remembered, but man my Team doesn't look that bad.

Krazie
03-04-2007, 06:25 AM
My team is solid, and I didnt even get a chance to set my pre-picks!

I got quality at every position! One of the most, if not the most reliable catchers in the league, if somebody needs a 1B, get at me because i have arguably 3 of the top 5 first basemen in the entire league, lol.. Dan Uggla, although no Chase Utley is a very quality start at second base, I have Troy Glaus who is a great start for either 3B or SS. Third Base might need an upgrade down the road.. SP and RP I will be good on, Chris Carpenter heading my squad is GREAT, and with the depth of the waiver wire for pitchers, I'm good to go..

If anyone wants someone on my squad, the positions I can use an upgrade for are OF, 3B, and SS only..

Shaaady Souljah
03-04-2007, 06:29 AM

The best thing about Fantasy Baseball is it uses the most strategy of any fantasy sport. You cant win a football league with an average team, but you can win a baseball league with an average team if you know how to utilize your players, when to make moves, etc.

The waiver wire is so deep, last night I picked up pitchers that have no business ever being in the free agent pool, i dont like that idea, i wish we had a couple more teams..

How the hell did you know who he was. Also he isn't a minor leaguer. He got called up late last year (sept) and played a few games. Although he may start out in the minors this year (not sure yet) he deserves to be in the Bigs.

I still scratch my head at that considering you coulda got him with your very last pick, lol..

Because Baseball is my fav sport, I have people i like over people that are good. I enjoy playing fantasy and don't care if i win. Just want people i like on my team. If i had 95% Yankeee players i would get rid of them for the worst players if i had to. I hate the Yankees. anyways what im saying is, im playing for fun. Seeing how well the guys i like can do..

I follow baseball and I tend to hear about players who get called up during the roster expansions and proceed to tear it up. I'm always on the lookout for players for the next season.

As of this point, he is going to start at Triple-A Syracuse and will unfortunately toil there until one of Toronto's starters gets injured. Got to feel bad for the guy though when your manager tells you that Matt Stairs is better than you.

Congrats, man. ;)

I am sure next year will be much better--I know I will actually play and draft... The football is going great so far; hopefully in the other football league as well.

Keep an eye out for Krazie to start this up again next year... Until then... ENJOY THE PLAYOFFS! ;)
