    Since spring training is only around the corner, who is interested in joining a Boards Fantasy Baseball for the upcoming season?

    This league will be a non-keeper and will more than likely be head-to-head. Of course suggestions are welcome on rosters sizes and positions, scoring categories etc for the makeup of the league. Feel free to PM me if you dont want to post and I will put up the initial list of players in a few days. Draft wont be until a week or so before the first games in Japan so there is plenty of time to get involved...

    Hi all

    Busy with "life" this year so will not commit to any additional leagues.
    I will run the Keeper league as last year.

    Wouldn't mind doing this myself. Never done a Fantasy Baseball League so would definitely be a newbie.

    I've also been in to Baseball for years. Dodgers supporter.

    Hi guys, we have a new Fantasy Sports forum for all sports:

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1535

    I have started a thread on the non-keeper league:

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2056549959

    Maybe we can use this thread moving forward and keep this forum to baseball chat only?

    Hey 8-10, was a decision made on where the fantasy baseball threads are to be located? I had a look at the fanatsy sports category and it looks to be dominated by fantasy football, I think we could get lost in there. I kinda like have the fanatsy baseball threads here as its easier to keep up. I'm sure the non-fantasy baseball player dont mind too much...I hope :)

    Anyways thanks for posting an updated list. There are now 16 player interested players...

    1. Coeus
    2. Malachyscott
    3. BigBadRob83
    4. UCD AFC
    5. Iang87
    6. namloc1980
    7. Masked Man
    8. Benimar
    9. WallyWanka
    10. smackbunnybaby
    11. 8-10
    12. bit of red72
    13. lankythecamel
    14. Grahamer666
    15. Summerskin
    16. gciddy

    Entry is still open. We can leave it open for another week or 2 and then decide the makeup of the league(s).

    Yeah I strongly oppose having threads in that new forum. I have absolutely no idea how it got approved, such a blatantly backhand way of the fantasy soccer getting the forum it wanted. Any non soccer league that puts its forum there will die out rather quickly. Look at the stupid number of soccer related posts in there already.

    I guess they maybe got the thread cos the the fantasy american football got a dedicated subforum. That was needed to help organise all the boards leagues that were run last year and to be fair it is well organised.

    I think we'll have 3 leagues (2 keeper and 1 non-keeper) this year so that will be 3 league threads, that shouldn't clog up this baseball forum too much. We can keep all league related talk within their respective threads.

    Hey guys,

    Any idea what kind of league this is going to be and what website we'll be using, and who commish is?
    If needed, I could set up a poll for it as I had done something pretty similar for the Keeper League 2.0 (http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2056550937 - still open to new owners) and got everyone to vote to decide scoring, rosters, trades, etc.

    Think it will be a head-to-head, 5x5 categorys with daily roster changes, similar to the settings we had in the boards.ie league last year. There will be a few new players so its best to keep it simple although if there is greater than 12 player it might be best to up it to a 6x6...

    Since I started the thread I was going to commish it, if I do I would prefer to play in Yahoo. Have you set up your league yet? I was think of creating it in the 2 week of March and hold the draft in the few days before the games in Japan...

    Sounds good to me, although would wonder if everyone would be up for daily roster changes, especially in H2H can be big swing as usually guy who is more active on pitching changes can win the week. Would be able to do it most weeks myself but everyone in league might not be.

    Have set up the Keeper League 2.0, doing it on ESPN, looks like it's going to be roto based on votes so far so will be good to have something different here.
    Can still change everything up until draft day thankfully, so have set it up so everyone can get ready beforehand.

    With daily roster changes you can set the lineups days (even weeks) in advance so you dont have to active daily. Having daily roster changes is good in H2H as it allows you to make changes to turn a matchup around. There will a max on player adds a week (4 is the default) so people have to think about who they bring in. I must get the default rules for Yahoo H2H leagues and post them...

    That sounds pretty good, sorry had misunderstood the first time, thought it would be madness dropping and adding pitchers every night.
    Was in league few years ago where guys would get 30-40 starts a week in pitching through pure activity and zero strategy, was pretty annoying.
