I have always played with the guys at work but in the Air Force....eventually your buddies move on to other places. Anyway, I find myself with no one to join a league at work so I would really be interested.

Looks like we're getting some interest so the next questions are:

Head to head or Roto?
CBS or Yahoo, etc?

I agree...H2H is better. I like ESPN but have never played CBS....but that doesn't matter to me.

I do have a question tho. What kind of draft are we going to have? Online live draft?

That would be my preferred choice. Online live drafts on CBS happen to be AWESOME. They do a draft room that has a live chat box on it, coupled w/ fast action sorting options.

I've never done a ESPN live draft, but IMO Yahoo live drafts are very bad.

Are ESPN leagues free? I haven't done a league on that site in years.

Live online draft makes the most sense.

The ESPN live draft is the same. I love it! Sounds like CBS and ESPN have the same live draft options. Like I said...i realy like the ESPN league but don't mind doing the CBS.

I agree on the Yahoo drafts.

ok, guys I set up a league over at ESPN

join, take a look at the settings and let me know what you'd like to change... I just did the positions and points off the top of my head so there will need to be some tweaks I'm sure.

I also set this up as a keeper league with 4 keepers for subsequent seasons, so we're looking for guys who want to enjoy the league for years to come.

I guess they don't do a general league # and password to join. So PM me or post your e-mail address and I'll send it along through the Invite link on the site.

Have patience, I may not be sitting here all day at the computer.

Used ESPN because its free and customizable... CBS's free leagues didnt have any good options to put in.

Can we get rid of the 2B/SS, 1B/3B positions? There really is no need for them, as they don't even exist in real baseball. I've always done 9 active batters, 9 active pitchers in all of my past leagues.

I'll join

HOWEVER, I may not be able to attend that draft date.

Put me down for a team, but until my future schedule clears up, I'll know for certain what's going down.

I was thinking more like a Dback's "executive" ticket lanyard, but the $150 allstar game jersey signed by Gonzo and Danny B that I had framed and now hangs over my bed seems like a much better prize Rolling Eyes

Srsly though, I get a ton of Dbacks swag that builds up around here that I need to get rid of. I've got 2008 month-by-month calendars (even though that won't do much good in September...), I've got some give-away hats, I've got some pens, I've got a surplus of Mark Reynolds and Justin Upton Bowman rookie cards, I've got a lot of stuff. I'd have to pick something out to contribute to a championship prize if we decide to have one.
