    Actually Neo was our baseball commish, I think Chip did your football league.

    Tons of fun

    I'm in. I won two of the redszone yahoo leagues last season and am looking forward to defending my title.

    By the way I've been doing tis for several years and i too believe Yahoo is the best and easiest to use.

    count me in.

    Yahoo is fine. I prefer the H-2-H format because dead teams cause less trouble.

    I'd like to play in your league this year if you'll have me. PM me with information, cost, etc., if you decide to do so. If not, give me a PM about when/"where" the draft will be.

    Thanks.

    I'm interested...

    I know last year, I focused mainly on my sandbox team, and neglected my yahoo team, but I don't plan on doing more than one this year.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'm interested. Please PM me when you have the details.

    I agree with what other have been saying. If you're looking for a great free fantasy baseball game, Yahoo's game is the best.

    I'm an old timer who doesn't know a thing about playing in a fantasy league.

    How much of an effort and time does it involve daily?

    I'd be interested, but as a working Dad with 3 hungry mouths to feed, I haven't gotten involved in the past because of the above reasons. I didn't want to make a commitment to something like this, and then find out I didn't have the time to be able to keep it up, and then end up contracted!

    I thought about doing it and trying to get my daughter involved in helping me run my team. Maybe between the two of us we could handle it.

    Just how complicated is it?

    Thanks

    GAC, I would say most of the work involves getting ready for your draft. In head to head leauges, you only have to worry about setting your roster once a week, so at the bare min you would have to check in just once a week (but that's no fun right) to update your roster based on injuries, performance, etc. Above and beyond that is up to the owner, but to remain active that would be all that's needed.

    I would like to play. Sounds great. I've never done Yahoo fantasy before so hopefully someone can help me out?

    Well I know I was in Chips last year and one on Sandbox with some Zoners, I am up for whatever, will definitely do Chips and if we get the same group form Sandbox, I would be glad to defend my title there.

    Looking forward to a heated fantasy season,

    Ryan

    As Redny pointed out in this topic of his, we're looking for people that will be highly active with their team in our league whether it be at the Sporting News Site (pay to play) or Yahoo's (free at this point) .

    In our fantasy basball league last year (Larkin Fan set it up as an official Redszone League at Sandbox) only 4 - 5 people in our 10 team league participated at a highly active level last year. Redny and I are asking for a highly active level of involvement from our league players because it makes the league so much more fun than having "dead teams" not participate.

    I played in 2 fantasy basball leagues last year. I won the Sandbox league that Redny(finished 2nd), LexingtonRedsFan(Kevin-finished last, LOL!!!) and others played in last baseball season.

    WolfWolfWolf(Larry? or was Larry's team named Bob Boone) weren't you in this league of ours last year?
    Sorry, I have forgotten.

    I finished 2nd in the other Sandbox league I played in that also had Lexington Reds Fan in it.

    It's always fun competing against and beating great competitors like Redny(Ken) & Kevin. Kevin knows that I've always beaten him in baseball .

    Redny- as for what you requested in your opening post on this subject, just an FYI - I haven't received any PM's from any potential team owner wanting to participate at a high level in our league for this upcoming season.

    Thanks Ken for getting the ball rolling!!!

    Looking Forward to another fun season of fantasy baseball!!!

    Ryan, you're confusing the fantasy football league with fantasy baseball. I'm not a fantasy baseball player.
