    Anyone play fantasy baseball? If there is enough interest I would run a fantasy baseball keeper league for anyone who wanted to join. We can discuss rule setups after I know we have 10-15 who want to commit to playing.

    I prefer keeper formats, but I'd also run a single season league if that what the group consensus turns out to be.

    Post if you are interested.

    *Raises hand*

    Guess I don't really have a preference on keeper/single season.

    My initial thought is to run it as a keeper league, with the bottom two finishes at risk of losing their spot to other interested parties. If that happens to me, I'll have no issues staying on as a commissioner and trying to get in the following year.

    Count me in. I guess I’d prefer single season, but I’d defer to the group. No opinion on rotisserie vs H2H.

    Assuming we are playing for money, I'd be interested. I prefer roto leagues but would do either.

    I'd be down. I'm in both Rotisserie and H2H, so I'm good either way.

    Definitely playing for cash. Probably $30-$50 buy-in. We can agree on how payouts would be broken down.

    When we get up to 12 people, we'll settle on a format and the financials before we decide whether to accept more entries.

    What would the 10 stat categories be? I prefer obp over average and k/9 over straight K. Just always disliked that guys that added and dropped starters all the time just to try and load up on Ws and Ks

    So, I'd personally propose we run a league based off a H2H Points format developed by fangraphs.

    It's a keeper format with a deep 40 man roster. Auction draft with a $400 salary cap and unlimited keepers. Off-season salary arbitration. Weekly line-ups of 22 starters, comprised of the following:

    Offense
    C, 1B, 2B, SS, MI, 3B, 5 OF's and a Utility Slot

    Pitching
    5 SP and 5 RP

    Points would be based on linear weights and can be found in detail here (Fangraph Points section):

    https://ottoneu.fangraphs.com/scoringoptions

    Again, I'm open to other options. I was a longtime Roto only guy, but I tried this format about 5 years ago and it's the most fun I've had playing fantasy sports. Lots of strategy and does a fantastic job emulating real life player performance. Everyone that I've introduced to the format loves it and a roto keeper league I've ran for 10 years reset to this format about 4 years ago and hasn't looked back.

    I’d be interested. Is it a friendly league or $$ involved?

    Cash league. I'd like to do a $50 entry if everyone is good with that.

    I’d be interested if you still need a player. I’m open to whatever format the group decides.

    By my count, we need 2 more players. Plenty of time to get them.

    I'd be game to join a fantasy league if there are any open spots still?

    Once we get one more, I'm going to start finalizing details and getting things started so we can figure out a draft/auction date. We'll waitlist anyone else who is interested.
