View Full Version : Any interest on a half season roto league?

It would be on Yahoo.

I'd propose making it NL only, just for fun and to add a little challenge to it.

We could choose the stats to count, again just to make it more interesting rather than the standard 5x5, though I'm ok with that if we do go NL only.

Anyone interested?

I'd be up for a half season league. Never played a NL or AL only league so would be up for that. Or I'd be up for a big lineup mixed league (C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,4 OF, UTIL, UTIL)

Let me know if you get enough people.

I would do it if its a Yahoo league. However, i usually like leagues with other people than Reds fans so I can get my guys cheap. :cool:

We could also start one on Rotohog. Their game is a tad different than your normal fantasy game, but it's fun and they give away free prizes!

PM me if you are interested in that. If I can get enough interest I will create a league and invite everyone!

Since my two ESPN leagues are basically inactive, I would definitely be interested in a half season league. Either Yahoo or Rotohog is ok with me as I have used them both before. Just let me know.

I've got a Yahoo one set up.

If you are interested, join....

League ID#309866

Pass: natizone

I'd like to get 10 people, but we can do it with 8 I suppose.

Once we have some people, we can start to get more specific.

Try to keep it Redszone only before we start inviting friends and family please.

I am signed up. I see that the start date is Monday, June 16, but I don't see a date / time for the draft. When is that scheduled?

Joseph

All those things we will set once we get people, they are still changeable.

I am probably interested.

I'll go ahead and sign up and if I can't commit to it I'll pull out. Though I'm already in one NL league, I don't mind being in another - especially if we decide to go with a different kind of format (though even a 5x5 will be OK with me).

I might be interested; I am only in one league at the moment.

My problem is that I work 3-11 PM Tuesday through Thursday, so I wouldn't be able to do a draft then.

Joseph

We can try to work out a good draft schedule based on who signs up.

I would be interested if there are still spots avaiable.

We have 4 signed up so far, so still room yes.

Homer Bailey

Just signed up.


Some suggestions.... feel free to object. Can we not use holds as a category? It's my least favorite statistic. I also love the Quality Start statistics. Maybe we could use that.

I think 8 teams would be perfect. Thanks for setting it up.

Joseph

FYI to all, we have to draft by the 15th, its a Yahoo thing.

Joseph

Let's discuss categories.

I want to do something different than the standards.

Suggestions?

I personally would like to see a mix of standards and perhaps some sabermetric type of stuff.

Joseph

Just suggestions, but what about...

Hitters
R, 2B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, TB, OPS, XBH,

Pitchers
W, CG, SV, K, GIDP, TB, WHIP, K/9, IRA, QS

Now we could break down OPS into its two individual components instead if we wanted, we could add or change in some fielding stats as well.

I'm game for anything.

Homer Bailey

Two that I hate are K's for hitters and TB for pitchers. It gives guys that don't check their team an advantage, and usually hurts the good teams. That's just me personally.

Joseph

I was trying to insert a 'reverse' scoring thing, something thats negative on each side.

From a traditionalist standpoint, I'd rather see BA than doubles, but I like the rest of the offensive categories.

For pitching, I would like to see either Runs Allowed Average or FIP average or ERA. I would take out GIDP. Also, I'd remove CG since it's become nearly obsolete. Then I'd add either something to do with walks or GB:FB ratio or something along those lines.

I recognize that, but more often than not the person that wins that category is just the one that checks their lineup the least and has guys playing that are on the disabled list.

If we don't get up to 10 teams by Sunday morning I will be backing out of this league. I will never play in a league that has less than 10 teams again. I've tried 2 and they are not fun.

Sorry.

33,

You've obviously never played in an NL-only league then.

NL-only leagues, especially with more than 8 teams, are actually challenging. I'd advise you to stick it out.

Even with 7 teams, it should be fun if that's what we end up with. The draft still set for 3:45 today?

Even NL only...the point of an NL only league is to make it really challenging. There are 16 teams in the NL, so with a 8 team league every person will have a starting player at every spot. In a 10 or 12 team league that is not the case.

I've vowed never to play in an 8 team league again and I am going to stick to it.

Sorry.

I've been in in NL-only league for 12 years. Since you've admittedly never been in one, you don't have a very good idea of the challenge involved, obviously.

I'm sure you've enjoyed mixed leagues of 14-16 teams right? Well cut that in half, and make it an NL-only, and you have the equivalent of 7-8 teams.

You're obviously free to do what you want. And I guess we shouldn't be begging you to stay in. But really man, it's pretty silly to duck out of a league because of the number of teams when you haven't even experienced that format before.

I would not have been able to stay for the whole live draft anyway. I hope you guys have a fun league.

Hey gang, sorry this came off so fast. I was at the Reds BoSox series this weekend and my hotel didn't have 'net access as promised.

Looking forward to getting going.

If anyone wants to change any categories, we still have a few hours before scoring kicks in tomorrow.

Whoaaa we drafted?

Joseph
06-16-2008, 10:57 AM
Yeah, back on the last page I'd said we had to draft by the 15th due to yahoo rules for second half leagues.
