Sounds good.

As long as I don't get stuck with the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy it may be, but the imagination can only go so far.
Go Boston Sox.

Assuming it's a real question, and knowing your not in the US, no, there are no cheerleaders at MLB games. if you ever get a chance to go to a Red Sox / Yankee game, you'll get all the chearin you'll ever need from the fans. (not erou soccer crazy, but nuts none the less!!!)

Yahoo is fine with me. Simpler the better.

good call on doing head-to-head. last season, I think aqua, jimski, and I were the only people that logged in after the allstar break...

PS - since jimski stole my crown st00pid jimski in the last week last season, can you save a spot for him for the time being? I need revenge. :twisted: I'll pm him to check in on this thread...

So you want revenge in addition to kicking my arse in hockey?

I'll join, but probably can't support the live draft. I think Yahoo let's me set just my team on auto pick... if that's ok with the group. That way if I lose, I have an excuse and if I win, I can rub it in Hoodie's face.

Japan has paid BIG TIME into the Red Sox / Yankees rivalry this year with 2 top players on each team. The 26 games (plus post season - ha!) will be live on network TV here and already we get daily reports on the Florida training camps and form of the 4 players.

This is the year that MLB really takes off in Japan I think, until now all the hype has been around the individual Japanese players like Ichiro, but the intensity of the Red Sox / Yankees games will bring an extra dimension now.

The real question, though, is this: will the MLB allow one/two Japanese franchise teams to join, as that clearly is the long-term aim?

I noticed that last year you used an auto-draft

I personally prefer live draft...but it could be tough to schedual a time for everyone

what do you think? Live draft or Auto draft?? or possibly an offline draft done in the forums???????

you so beat me to it,

Drift feel free to kick my ass for just thinkin it...


@ Niet - Personally, I don't think it'll happen anytime soon, but you're right as far as the ultimate goal. I think thats the whole point of the new World Baseball Classic (which I throughly enjoyed).

@ Draft Ques. Time is bad for me, I too will be setting the computer to draft. Will just make for some crazy trading!!!

I moved this to the games forum where it really should be.

I'm not sure whether I can make a live draft, but if not I will have my list ready for the computer to do for me.

Can't wait!!

From the feedback i have recieved so far, the draft will be live on TUESDAY MARCH 13th 8:00 EST

you can pre-rank your players so that if you do not attend (or forget) yahoo will auto-draft for you in the order you have selected...
