I just noticed that Yahoo Fantasy baseball,is now forming leagues...I'd love to get in a TDMMC league...(I promise not to complain...too much).

So this is just kind of a Feeler thread,to see if we can get a League.add your name,if I see 6-8 people. I'll go ahead and start a League,(or let someone else do it if they wish,(no biggie to me))

Most definitely...I'd like to see us get at least 8, and maybe even 10 if we could get that many. The league was a blast last season!

it depends on the format.  who's setting it up?

I got my ass kicked last season, mostly cause I don't know baseball very well.  I'm already scheduled to be in one league, maybe 2.

Well,To answer your question Brian,However the majority wants...Right now,If raptor plays that 3 that have said they want to play...I don't have problem the way it was set up last year....If I start it,I'll do like the FFL,where I'll ask for suggestions on how the league is set up....So no one gets caught off gaurd.

I just wanted to get a jump on it,before everyone says...Well, I would but I'm already in 3 leagues...

Raptor Add your name to the List if you want to play...

I'm not going to go register a league till I get atleast 6 people....

If someone else wants to Comish the League,Be my Guest....

I After I got used to it last year,I loved it and had a Blast.It made Baseball season SOOO Much more enjoyable...Even though I got my Ass kicked...

So it looks like the differences between this year and last year are the addition of an extra active utility slot, an active pitcher slot and 3 extra bench slots. I like the expanded roster size, both active and bench.

Just curious...on the scoring categories for the pitchers, do we really need "both" ER and ERA? How much flexibility is there for changing scoring categories? Just my opinion, but I think that having on-base percentage and slugging percentage as categories would be better than BB's and triples (yes, I am still against triples).

Bring on baseball season!  Grin

I didn't notice...Ok,I'll take out ERA...

I can have up to 15 Batting stats,and 15 pitching stats....

On base percentage,AND Slugging percentage both as seperate catagories.

OR

On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)?

Thanks, Velvety_B... I really do like the straight swap of triples (a rare and insignificant stat) and BB's for slugging percentage and on base percentage, as two separate cats, rather than the combined OPS. I think on base percentage is a better catch-all for the BBs, and slugging percentage is a better indicator of extra-base capabilities than the flukey triples.

Thoughts from the rest of ya?

I like Triples.  It encourages you to avoid putting 10 power hitters in your lineup.  It gives value to the speedsters more than just for stolen bases.  If you don't have triples, you can't have doubles either, and should reduce it to just "hits"
