    1 player needed to a Fantasy Baseball Roto 5X5 league...

    Looking for 1 player to fill out our 12 team league at Yahoo. The player we're looking for should be experienced in 5X5 play, willing to participate in the league on an almost daily basis (daily if possible) and willing to stay with the league for the entire season.

    Our league will draft on Saturday, March 28th at 5:50PM ET. at Yahoo.

    We have a great membership of well-known Redszone players and some of them have been league champions at one time or another, we have at least 3 players that have been a commissioner previously a league that wants to stay together and form a 3 keeper player over 3 years league before re-drafting all players.

    If you are interested please indicate so here on this thread. All interested Redszoners will be considered.
    Above all we want to have fun! Our league also enjoys having our own website! The final member will also become a charter member on our website! We play in a free league.

    Thank You For Your Interest!
    Jerry / Vada Pinson Fan
    League Commissioner
    PS- I'm looking to fill this opening rather quickly. Possibly by Thursday the 12th of March if we get the player we hope signs up. Possibly sooner.

    I may be interested in this as my 4th, and final, team if I fit what you want. Will it be MLB universe, AL only, or NL only? Also are you stuck on it being 3 keepers? Any chance it may be 5? Just curious.

    I would sign up and play if you can't find someone to fill the slot. I haven't signed up to play anywhere yet.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    It will be MLB universe. We are not adamant about 3 keepers.

    If this is to be your 4th team how would you be able to dedicate enough time to us especially if your team isn't doing well?
    Would you be able to participate in the live draft on March 28th at 5:50pm? The statement to KoryMac5 applies to you as well, redsfandan.

    Kory, have you played Roto 5X5 before? We are looking for someone that would promise to play on a daily basis which means making lineup changes, checking on trade offers and making them and being pro-active in our league, etc. Can you do this? The statement to redsfandan applies to you as well, KoryMac5.


    Waiting for your replies.
    Thank You,
    Jerry

    Over a 2 year time period ('06-'07) I had 30+ fantasy baseball teams and I didn't quit one team before the last week of the season. Even on teams that were in the cellar mid-season I wouldn't quit. Instead I'd just try to finish at least in the top 3. Last year I scaled down (for obvious reasons ) to only 4 teams and that's what I want as a max this season too.
    And yes I can make a draft on 3/28 at 5:50.

    Thank You, Dan.

    We will have a final decision by Thursday the 12th, right around 6pm EDT.

    If you have any additional fantasy baseball facts about yourself please let us know, Dan.

    Thanks Again,
    Jerry

    I usually average about 4 leagues a year. Last year was probably the first year that I really got into it though. I was in a league last year with Jerry and a bunch of other guys on here. I got second in that league (I lost first place in the last day or two). I can't say for sure that I could make the scheduled draft date. Saturday evenings would be tough to do for me, so if that is still flexible. I have two other leagues right now, both dynasty, one is a money league. Jerry can vouch for my participation.

    The voting for our league is now over and the winning person has been contacted by Personal Message (PM) here at Redszone.

    Thanks to each of you that contacted me, either here, through emails and PM's. We appreciated your interest and will retain your names for 2010 if there are any future openings.

    Mod's. Please close this thread and remove it if you prefer.
    Thanks To All!!!
