Not sure how big of an interest there is in baseball around here, but I thought it might be cool to get a fantasy league going for intl.

The season starts march 25th, so just post here if you are interested and if it seems like there will be enough i'll get a league going.

I played Fantasy Football back in the day, and I know even less about football than about baseball (and that's saying something), so yeah, why not.

by my count we have 7 people. espn.com will only let me create a league with 6 or 8 or more. So lets convince one more person to join and we will be golden.

Can you try to make one at Yahoo? I hate logging into espn.com for some reason.

i could but yahoo isn't as good. mlb.com's fantasy league looked good, but we would need 12 people to play. Espn is good and has a lot of different options.

Knowing nothing about Baseball, I will do this for fun and also because I think it would be good to do Fantasy Baseball. Where do I sign up?

I'm the Blue Hens, after muh college. But for some reason it shows up Blue Hens Hoff. whatevs i kinda like it.

We could have done a live draft, but that would have been everyone would have to be online at the sametime for awhile, and since we are all from all over and probably busy that would be hard to do so i opted for the preselected draft.

which just means that you pre-order your players 1-whatever. Say you picked Hamels, Rollins and Howard to be your 1,2,3 ranked players. For the draft, your draft position is randomly selected. Say you got the third pick. The first person selects Hamels, the second person selects Sosa, So then the computer will pick Rollins for you. Get it? cool. You also need to have players from every position, including pitchers. So make sure you dont have 20 first basemen.
You must order your picks before the deadline which I believe I made for this friday. I could be wrong, so just make sure you check on our league's site

There was a lot of different options on how to set up the league. I picked head to head point based. Which means our "games" last a week. And you are playing for points against one team, if after the end of a week you have more points you get a win which means your team will have a record. (1-0-0) After the season is over, shorter than the actual season, the top 4 teams have a playoff.

To get points your players must....(you can also look at this on our league site)...its copy and pasted so its hard to read sorry.

Batting
Doubles (2B) 2 Triples (3B) 3
Home Runs (HR) 4 Singles (1B) 1
Total Bases (TB) 1 Walks (BB) 1
Runs Scored (R) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Game Winning RBI (GWRBI)1 Stolen Bases (SB) 1
Caught Stealing (CS) -1 Ground into Double Plays (GIDP) -1
Strikeouts (K) -1 Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 5
Grand Slam Home Runs (GSHR) 5 Errors (E) -1
Pitching
Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Hits Allowed (H) -1
Walks Issued (BB) -1 Earned Runs (ER) -1
Home Runs Allowed (HRA) -1 Strikeouts (K) 1
Wild Pitches (WP) -1 Balks (B) -1
Wins (W) 7 Losses (L) -5
Saves (SV) 5 Blown Saves (BS) -3
Complete Games (CG) 2 Quality Starts (QS) 1
Shutouts (SO) 2 No Hitters (NH) 5
Perfect Games (PG) 7

If you have any questions let me know.

Hawking's Cosmonauts take to the field this summer.

I think my picks will be unprecedented successes, actually. I've just been typing names and baseball into google and things have been popping up. For example, searching for "Baron" with hopes for the Red Baron himself resulted in some guy from Florida. "Daniel Barone". Watch out. He's going to have an amazing season.

edit: thanks for the set up and invite, Hoff.

No points for defensive stats eh? That's a shame.


Made my first round picks. I imagine only the first 8 matter, or will this count for second round picks too?

I'm happy to note that Alex Rodriguez is nowhere near the top of my list. Fuck that guy.

And where are y'all drafting pitchers at? I AM A NINJA!

I'll be honest, for my top picks I've just been going with guys that have colours in their last names, like Green, Red, White and Brown. Also players named Johnson. And also Tim Lincecum.

I have added double plays and outfield assists just for you. The only other fielding one was "put outs" not sure what that really is, so i left it at 0.

And Pitchers, not really sure, i'd imagine they are pretty important tho, but so is hitting....kinda like real baseball haha.


oh and I would pick more then just your first 8 if you want to select your own pics. I don't think we get to rearrange our selections for the second round.

I feel like an idiot, but i have no idea how to start choosing players. I went to the Add Players + thing, and it gives me a list of players and an option to search for players... but I have no idea how to choose them.
