This new league is based on the Redszone Dynasty League, which you may have seen here in the Fantasy Island forum. That league has been a great success, so much so that all 12 owners have returned to play again this year. How often does that happen in fantasy sports?
We received several requests to join the league should any spots open up, but we did not have any openings arise in the existing league. Due to the strong interest we have decided to create a second league using the same format.
12 new owners have accepted the challenge to play with and against their Redszone friends in an active, competitive league over a period of years. All twelve owners are known to be skilled and savvy practitioners of rotisserie baseball so this will be an exciting test of their mettle.
Here is a list of the warring parties:
3. Atomic Dumpling
6. Brutus the Pimp
10. Vada Pinson Fan
12. Captain Hook
All owners must use their Redszone username as their team name. No hiding behind anonymous team names here! This makes the game more personal and familiar and encourages people to become more involved and stay that way. Otherwise it is just another anonymous Internet league.
We request a commitment from each owner to pay attention all season long and to play in future years also.
The League of Reds Nation is a dynasty keeper league, which means it will go on for years and all players will be kept from one year to the next. So the idea is to draft a nice blend of current stars and some young prospects that will mature into future stars.
Thanks to each of the team owners for playing. I am excited to start a new season of fantasy baseball. Let's make this a fun, friendly, active and competitive league!
