Cool - I'm in.

...wait... dollabillz' real name is MIKE?

I suggest we discuss a limit for weekly transactions. I find the "streaming cheap pitchers" strategy extremely distasteful.

edit to add: I see it's currently set for six moves per week; I assert that this is too many. I vote for two, but would not squawk at three.

Do you realize that the season starts March 28, and by drafting on April 1, we will be missing the first week of the season?

god damn japanese games...

I misread the article about that. I thought that the results of oakland/seattle would be added to week 1.

So March 25th good for everyone then? I figure that sunday after the chase is the best time for most people but lemme know if another date works better.

I enjoy the swapping for the hot hand strategy. Does he limit refer to waiver transactions or line-up swapping?

My FIRST fantasy league (the real-life in-person kind) is drafting on the 25th - I may or may not be home by 6, hard to say. But if it's OK with everyone else, don't worry about me.

n00 - if this league is like all the other Yahoo leagues I've been in, you can make as many lineup changes as you want with the players on your roster. The weekly limit is on waiver moves, i.e., ROSTER changes.

hmmm....I can't get into my Yahoo sports page....Who owns the n00less clubbies? I have no idea which e-mail I used, and the 2 i tried don't seem to be it

Whoops. Got it--when I clicked the link it only let me create a new team in our league, but when I went through the other way, it was ok

Maybe edit the thread name with new draft date? Might helP get a few new players who wont think it is already past draft date?

if we don't get any more teams by tonight, i'm probably going to dropout and do a public league for $...6 teams just isn't a fun league.

So... no Luxtopia baseball? Boo. Especially para. :smt019

Here is my starting lineup in my 12-team MONEY league ($45 to get in, $120 for winning):

C - Montero (ARI)
1B - Pujols (LAA)
2B - Ackley (SEA)
SS - Tulo (COL)
3B - Lawrie (TOR)
OF - Brawn (MIL)
OF - N Cruz (TEX)
OF - Crawford (BOS)
DH - Ortiz (BOS)

P - Greinke (MIL)
P - Latos (CIN)
P - Garza (CHC)
P - Holland (TEX)
P - Santana (LAA)
P - Thornton (CWS)

I think I'm going to be very competitive as long as nobody gets hurt for too long... I'm light on bench players.

12 Team Keeper League ($50)
In its 4th Season (Finished 2nd Twice)

The Harry's Comets (2012 Edition)
C Carlos Santana (Cle - C,1B) K
1B Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B)
2B Ben Zobrist (TB - 2B,OF) K
3B Daniel Murphy (NYM - 1B,2B,3B)
SS Starlin Castro (ChC - SS) K
OF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - OF) K
OF Giancarlo Stanton (Mia - OF) K
OF Jason Heyward (Atl - OF)
Util Adam Dunn (CWS - 1B)
SP David Price (TB - SP) K
SP Adam Wainwright (StL - SP) K
SP Brandon Beachy (Atl - SP)
SP Cory Luebke (SD - SP,RP)
RP Mariano Rivera (NYY - RP) K
RP Brad Lidge (Was - RP)
P Addison Reed (CWS - RP)
P Tyler Clippard (Was - RP)
P Mike Adams (Tex - RP)
BN Jemile Weeks (Oak - 2B)
BN Mike Aviles (Bos - 2B,3B,SS)
DL Salvador Perez (KC - C)DL
BN Matt Moore (TB - RP) K
BN Drew Storen (Was - RP) K
BN Max Scherzer (Det - SP)
BN Henderson Alvarez (Tor - SP)

I should note that I Traded Eric Hosmer & Chase Utley (thank goodness) for a draft pick before the deadline. And could not keep Lance Berkman, Tommy Hanson, or Desmond Jennings - 10 Keeper Limit.
Also had Mike Trout, Jesus Montero, and Bryce Harper.
I drafted Harper again this year, but had to release him and Allen Craig after news of Storen's DL stint. Moved Perez to DL - picked up Adam Dunn (REBOUND?). Picked up Lidge to get some of the Nationals' saves in Storen's absence, and Adams to help my WHIP and ERA.

If you can show me a better rotation in a 12 team league, I'd love to see it.
