    Fantasy Baseball League

    Anyone interested in starting a fantasy baseball league. Rotissere 5x5 keeper league perhaps. Just spit balling. I'd like to get in a league where I kinda know people in any way, not just the public leagues. I'm even down for a pay league.

    Yes. I'm very interested in joining a serious keeper league...

    Can we post this on The Sun Deck? Becuase that would really help us get people's attention...

    I'm not big on pay leagues, but a keeper league would be great fun to get involved in.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I've never been big on NL only leagues. I just think its more fun to get excited about David Ortiz rather than Connor Jackson. I'm okay with not having any money on the line, just spitballing like I said.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball League

    I certainly can. I'd hope to get around 12 for a league. Anything under 10 wouldn't be very fun.

    I agree... I even like the idea of like 16 teams with shallow rosters of say 21 spots...

    I've done one of the Redszone Yahoo leagues the past two years. A keeper league would be a lot of fun.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball League

    There should be some requirement as to experience and dedication of the players. I don't want to start a keeper league with someone who has never played fantasy baseball, and/or people who aren't 100% dedicated. A good keeper league should have people who understand stats and follows BASEBALL everyday, not just the Reds. From my experience a 12 team, 5x5 is best when done correctly. A 16 team league becomes more luck due to unexpected great seasons in the lower drafts or waivers. The talent level is too depleted. Also a 16 team league favors those that update everyday (which should always happen) but when people stop doing this, and it happens often, the disparity between the top and lower teams is a large amount which isn't fun. Also roto leagues are better than h2h in general since anyone can be lucky 1 week in the playoffs, but roto is a season long thing and takes more strategy.
