    Here is what I am thinking for the league. Please let me know your thoughts.

    Auction/draft date: Sunday March 28, around 3pm ET, noon PT.

    Standard 5x5 roto scoring

    $100 FAAB (free agent auction bucks) to bid on free agent pick-ups during the year (eliminates 'first come first served', and keeps the auction format all year)

    Weekly lineups, start each Monday

    C, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF, OF, OF, Util, P, P, P, P, P, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL

    Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?

    Whats our starting budget?

    I'd cut one of the catcher slots personally and go for another Util slot.

    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

    Sounds great. The draft date should work for me, although I would prefer 1:30 or 2 on that day. Why weekly lineups as compared to daily?

    Can you even do weekly lineups in a Yahoo roto league? I prefer daily too.

    Are we using standard FAAB rules (highest bid wins at the value of their bid) or vickery (highest bid wins, but only has to pay $1 more than the 2nd highest bid)?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?

    I would like to see it more like a 25 man roster.. maybe something like this?

    C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, OF, CI, MI, UTL, UTL

    SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL

    Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?

    I work Sunday nights so a 3:00 pm start time for the draft could mean I'd be cutting things a little close. So, like Redsfan320, I'd prefer a 1:30 or 2:00 pm start time.

    I'd also prefer lineups set daily.

    Starting budget is $260.

    The roster (and most of the rules) are standard NFBC format. The roster construction is designed to be challenging. With only 1 catcher slot, it really doesn't matter which catcher you get, aside from the top 2 or 3 catachers. By having 2 catchers, it forces owners to pay more attention to the position. We can certainly discuss rosters further if other owners want to change it though.

    Standard FAAB.

    Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?

    The reason I prefer weekly lineups is twofold: you don't have to log in every day to take the time to adjust your lineup (this is huge if you go on vacation during the year), and it adds some strategy to setting your lineup. You have to look at pitching matchups and how many games there are, and make decisions on that info, rather than just putting in all the guys that are playing.

    Again, most of the rules are standard NFBC format, which is the format used by most "expert" leagues. If anyone would like to vote on a rule change, let me know.

    And, I will see if I can't get an earlier draft time, if that isn't a problem for anyone else.

    +1, and I'd much rather prefer weekly lineups.

    Re: Who wants to be in an auction league?

    I prefer the more traditional roto roster with two catchers. As far as lineups go, I am fine with either format.

    Do you have a league name / password so we can go ahead and sign up?

    As far as the items being discussed, I prefer weekly line-ups and the 25 man roster.
