    Here it is! Sign up for FANTASY BASEBALL HERE!

    League Name: RedsZone
    League ID: 85876
    League Password: peterose


    **** Just a thought, but maybe we should all register using our RedsZone screen names so that we can recognize each other easily. I'm registered as "grounds crew".



    I have a maximum of 14 teams at this point for a head-to-head league with a live draft. Players will be drafted from both leagues rather than just using a NL or AL league. I went with the default Yahoo settings for now, pending recommendations from participants. I'll update it accordingly. I also set a draft date, which will also be temporary until we all decide upon a specific date/time. I can also change it to allow more/less players if need be.




    Here are the default league settings:

    Scoring Type: Head-to-Head
    Max Teams: 14
    Player universe: All baseball
    Max Moves: No maximum
    Max Trades: No maximum
    Trade End Date: August 12, 2007
    Trade Review: League Votes
    Trade Reject Time: 2 days
    Waiver Time: 2 days
    Can't Cut List: Yahoo! Sports
    Post Draft Players: Follow Waiver Rules
    League Start Week: Week 1 (Apr 1)
    Roster Changes: Daily - Tomorrow
    Minimum Innings Pitched: 7
    Divisions: No (I think it would be fun to have 2 divisions. So, if you agree then comment on it.)
    Catcher (C): 1
    First Base (1B): 1
    Second Base (2B): 1
    Third Base (3B): 1
    Shortstop (SS): 1
    Left Fielder (LF): 0
    Center Fielder (CF): 0
    Right Fielder (RF): 0
    Outfield (OF): 3 (rather than using individual OF positions such as RF, CF, LF...I went with 3 standard default "OF" spots)
    Other Batters (Util): 1
    (the above numbers give us a total of 9 batters, which obviously is standard)



    Pitching:

    Starters (SP): 2
    Relievers (RP): 2
    Other Pitchers (P): 3


    Other:

    Disabled List (DL): 1
    Bench (BN): 5


    Scoring will be based on these stats: (I'll change these upon recommendation)

    Runs
    Home Runs
    Runs Batted In
    Walks
    Doubles
    Triples
    Stolen Bases
    Batting Average


    Wins
    Complete Games
    Shut Outs
    Saves
    Strikeouts
    Earned Run Average
    (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched
    Strikeouts per Nine Innings (K/9)


    As you probably saw in the settings above, I have the division settings turned to OFF. I think it would be fun to have 2 divisions. Anyone else agree? Feel free to submit any suggestions and I'll change them accordingly if they are reasonable. I merely set this up with default methods in order to get the ball rolling.

    Howdy

    I joined. My RZ handle wouldn't make for an exciting team name so I called myself "The Red Narrons"

    Oh, and maybe its just me, but I have always been a fan of using OPS rather than BA for scoring, simply because it takes more of what a player actually does at the plate rather than batting average.

    I'm ready for this season to roll around. Should we play for reputation points?

    Question: How would the 2 division thing work out for the playoffs if we did it?

    I think it sounds like a cool idea, just not sure how it would work

    Well, after posting that I realized that only the Yahoo Fantasy PLUS leagues have that option. So, that makes it out of the question for us because we are the FREE league. PLUS leagues cost something like $140/league. So, I don't think we'll be doing that, haha.

    Well, now that we have 14 people, we are set and ready to go. At this point, you guys should all review the settings that I illustrated at the top of the page and add any input that you feel is necessary. Also, take a look at the draft date that I set. Make sure you can do it on that day. I'm not even sure if I will be able to, but I had to set one in order to register the league. It can be changed, so reply to this thread if you have a problem with that date.
