Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Since back in June when you abandoned your fantasy baseball team because it was totally sucking and you returned to your cubbyhole of Doritos and Freezer Pops, you’ve longed for this day.  As Bob Marley sang, this is your redemption song, mon.  Or womon.  It’s time again to join some fantasy baseball leagues.  Before you close all of your extraneous porn windows and rush to sign-up, let’s explain how these fantasy baseball leagues are going to work.  We’re going to have a bunch of leagues and crown a winner from each, then we’re going to crown ONE winner from all of the winners.   We will be be crowning the winner by taking each team’s points and multiplying it against a ‘league competitiveness factor.’  If you want to see how it worked last year, go here. So we’re going to fill up as many fantasy leagues as we can for the next couple of weeks.  Each fantasy baseball league will be a mixed league, 12 team, Roto, 5×5, 5 OFs, one Middle Infielder, one Corner Infielder, one Utility, 9 pitchers, 20 game eligibility, 180 Games Started.  The lineup is also known as:  C/1B/2B/SS/3B/CI/MI/5 OF/UTIL/9 P/3 BENCH/1 DL.  The fantasy leagues will be played in ESPN and they will be free to join.  They are not at Yahoo because they don’t give non-leaguemates the ability to see the leagues.

We’re going to start with five leagues of 12 and see how we do from there.  Each league has an organizer.  The duties of the organizer will be to accept 11 other people into the league, set it up at ESPN at the most conducive draft time and during the season post pretty pictures of the league standings.  Just choose one organizer from the 4 RCLs and contact them (the original RCL is invite-only, which is only fair because these guys have been the most active for the longest time).  If we don’t get enough to fill 5 leagues, we’ll fold them together like egg whites and sugar.  If we need more than 5 fantasy baseball leagues, then we will expand them like egg whites and a beater.  If we need more organizers, then we’ll handle that business in the comments of this post.  (The number of spots open will be updated by me as I hear from the organizers.)

Now for the BIG prizes!  I know, you can hardly wait.  This year’s winner will receive a congratulatory phone call from the D-List celebrity of your choice from this site.  A win would be nice, but isn’t a phone call from Mr. Belding a lifelong dream?  Wanna explain to Larry Holmes what fantasy baseball is so he can tell you congratulations?  Wanna find out if Vernon Wells, the actor from Weird Science, ever gets the outfielder Vernon Wells’ mail?  Now is your chance! (Offer is only good for $19.95 phone calls, assuming this site stays in business until next October.) In addition to the phone call with Todd Bridges, we’re proud to present the 1st ever Razzball trophy, which will be donated by frequent commenter, Tony.  You can see Tony’s work at Claytrophies.com.  Finally, frequent commenters, Adam and The Real Tom For Real, have been nice enough to donate a shiny, old-school jacket that proudly proclaims you are the 2010 RCL Champion.  Okay, sign up:

    Is there a definitive ranking system, or can we apply to join any league? I take it we just email the organizer concerned?

    In the coming years I’d love to play in each of the organizers leagues, but for now I feel like I have to sign up with figgy as a way to say thanks for making that tier sheet because it helped me massively yesterday while in a mock! No more clicking Top 40 starters and seeing Shin Soo Coo at the top and realizing I clicked top 40 OF because they look so damn similiar!

    League 4 is full, and unfortunately I have about 4 or 5 extra managers. I will notify everyone and fill the league on a first come, first served basis.

    Lovin’ the h2h in Figgy’s league. And I think I’m also digging that I got the 12th pick too!

    I found my fantasy baseball team name this MORNING in religion class of all places:

    THE LEFT-HANDED TANTRIC PITCHER

    I know it’s one of those good ones because you have to actually do research on it to understand it! Huzzah!

    Hey Sean, I emailed you about joining your league, can you please let me know yes or no so that I can try a different one if I am not in yours? Thanks.

    @Grey: do you have “EMAIL AN ORGANIZER THAT HAS OPENINGS” ready to copy/paste to the million posts that ask “how do i get in a league”?

    LOL

    Thanks for the PLUG for my site too. Man i need to update that thing. I have a couple trophys not on there plus alot of paintings i’ve been working on.

    SIMPLY FRED wake up, what league are you getting in….

  30. Jasonbayniac says:

    I’d be willing to organize the 6th league.

  31. sean says:

    @Eddy: Uh, if you want to qualify for the grand prize and be able to be compared to your fellow commenters, I don’t think a H2H league will work.

    Lovin’ the h2h in Figgy’s. And I think I’m lovin’ the 12th pick even more!

    I finally found my fantasy baseball team name this MORNING while dazing off in religion class…

    THE LEFT HANDED TANTRIC PITCHER

    And it HAS to be good because you actually have to do research to understand it, a sure sign of success!! Huzzah!

    Keeper question:
    League specs are: 12 team 6X6 roto scoring including QS and Doubles as the extra categories. Each team keeps 5 keepers.

    I wanted opinions on who I should keep. My obvious keepers are Ryan Braun, Mark Teix, Jimmy Rollins but then I cant decide between Robinson Cano, BJ Upton, or Nick Markakis for my last two spots. For pitchers I have Hamels, Wainwright, or Billingsley but I tend to shy away from keeping pitchers. Open to all opinions and thanks ahead of time!

  34. Eddy says:

    @Eddy:
    damn slow computer didnt see it refresh!

    @sean:
    Those are the settings for Figgy’s league Sean, you may want to talk it up with him, I’m just a manager in it

    Yahoo just introduced FAAB-styule blind bidding in lieu of the regular waiver process.

    Has anybody ever done this style before? Do you like it? If our league adopts it, any suggestions regarding strategy?

    Here is the description: Acquisition budgets. Gamers now have the option to replace the traditional waiver process with FAAB-style blind bidding, which is arguably a fairer way to distribute un-owned talent. Managing FAAB dollars is an art. You’re encouraged to try it.

    Hey Grey, if you need another organizer I’m more than willing to do it. Love the site and would love to pitch in. Here’s my email caleb.peavy@gmail.com

    @Brandon: Thanks, updating.

    @Jasonbayniac: I made you an organizer per your comment. If you don’t want to be an organizer tell me.

    @The Chew: I may need you, stand by for a little bit.

    I’m setting up the league now.

    @Tony: No problem, thanks for doing the trophy.

    @William: I like FAAB, much better than just first come first served.

    @cruisinkc: Hey, good to see you again. I’d keep Cano and Upton.

    @Jasonbayniac: Thanks!

    @The Chew: Okay, I made you an organizer, any questions let me know. Thanks for doing this!

    @Grey: I have emailed two RCL commissioners so far but seem to have been too late…should I continue to email the commissioners as they create leagues or should I expect them to pass on spillover to the new commissioners?

  46. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @royce!: You can become an organizer or you can keep moving down the list until you get an invite from an organizer. Let me know if you want to organize. Up to you… I’m sure either way you’ll get in a league.

  47. The Chew says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Can you email me quick instructions. I know that I need to create the league, but I want to do it right the first time. caleb.peavy@gmail.com

  48. Jasonbayniac says:

    8 spots left. I sent out some invites to those who emailed me. if you didn’t recieve them let me know.

  50. NoonTime says:
    (link)

    @Grey: In the post it might be prudent to put all the exact league settings we will use this year for the new league organizers. I think some of them you can change after league creation if they set it up wrong, but I am not sure if all of them are modifiable once the league is set up.

    This should be a interesting test to see how readership has grown. Last year there were 9 RCL leagues. Do I hear 15 this year?

  51. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Jasonbayniac: Thanks for the update!

    @NoonTime: I think they are modifiable but, yeah, trying to be as clear as possible in the post. If there’s anything that’s not clear, let me know.

  52. royce! says:

    @Jasonbayniac: You get mine? I promise not to overreach for Jason Bay if you let me in your league!

    @Jasonbayniac: Nevermind, just got it. I take back the Bay comment. I’m taking him in the second round! Muhahaha! Wait, joke’s on me, isn’t it?

  54. Jasonbayniac says:
    (link)

    5 spots left. I think it is just the defaut espn settings for the league. You don’t really have to change anything. Just have to decide if you want an online draft or offline.

    More Leagues will open correct grey? I’m not in any rush, i’ll jump in one with Fred or whoever, but he mentioned something so i’ll see what he’s doing… I just dont wanna get shut out! lol.

    @Brian: Cool

    @Pat: Nice image.

    My league is now full, however there are a few owners who haven’t answered their invites yet so I may need a couple more guys.

  60. Tony says:

    I would like to join the first commentator league. I emailed the guy, but if there is anyway for me to join a league, let me know

    I’d be happy to organize one if organizers are still needed.

    @Jasonbayniac: Thanks!

    @Tony: Well, whatever league you join, tell them you need to wait to go home to join so they hold your spot.

    @Jay: Join Brad’s league.

    @brad: Thanks, Brad! I’m adding you.

    @swpayton: There’s a league now that just opened.

  67. Tony says:

    Hear that fred, start a league, and save me a spot…. if you dont i’ll probably get a league and then fred and anyone else can join. I do want to have a $50 per team fee though. We did that last year in my RCL league. A little something for the time and effort. Pay out the top 3-4 spots? Keeps it interesting. And hopefully our league has the overall champ. I know there were two guys at almost the very top of the standings from my league last year, made it tough…

    If you have found a league for us (and, yes, I am down for the $50, tell me who to respond to).

    If looking to me to run a league, I have NO experience. I might be coerced, but afraid commenters would suffer from unintended, but likely, mistakes by me. Probably better suited for someone else??

    @art: Nice!

    @Simply Fred: If you and Tony want to start an RCL that is a $50 buy-in, it’s on you guys. I won’t stand in your way, but remember everyone wants in in February then you have to track people down in October. BTW, it’s pretty easy to oragnize. You just set up the league and send out invites to the people that email you.

    @Asdrubal Bastardo: Nice!

    @Joe B: Thanks so much! You’re now an organizer.

    Thanks for the ask, but I am already in one. My girlfriend (soon to be fiancee) would not be pleased with me if I joined another $ league.

    I’ve set league 9 for 180 games started for pitchers and no limit for batters. Also waivers period is 2 days. Are the other settings that aren’t stated in the post at my discretion???

  95. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Simply Fred: Fred you set it up or I’ll create league #49 or whatever it is by the time I get home at like 7pm EST. Just hold me a spot if you do it.

    @grey…..What does the organizer have to do other than set it up? Other than that is there really anything? you’re just the commish….?

    @ Simply FRED ….MONEY IS DUE BEFORE THE DRAFT, i have no problem organizing it, holding the money and I will pay every dollar out, i’m a teacher and I wouldn’t screw anyone, not in fantasy baseball…. so anyone thats gonna sign up, its $50, due before the draft, that way there’s no seeing how your team does or abandoning… and stiffing the others. You dont pay within a week before the draft or a certain date, team gets deleted and we’ll fill it with someone who will PAYPAL the money or whatever….

    @Probable Party Starter: Hehe

    @Joe B: I don’t think there’s other settings, but ask if you come across anything. 2 days on waivers is fine.

    @Tony: Yeah, just set up the league and draft time. Then you’ll need to update Rudy or I with a league page so we can do the master standings. Don’t think it’s that hard, to be honest. But I’m not the one doing it.

    ***LEAGUE SETUP***
    From memory, when you set up a league, you just accept every default espn gives you for setting up a custom or private league. I think the only thing you need to do that’s different is make it viewable to people who aren’t on that league.
    If they’re not all set up exactly the same way, Grey and Rudy can’t figure out the standings.

    @Grey: You often recommend for us not to worry about drafting old guys/guys coming off career years. However, there does come a point in a draft when it is reasonable to take these guys that don’t have much upside. For example, I’m in a Yahoo League (I’m not sure if you’ve checked out their rankings), and the guys in my league will most likely use Yahoo’s pre-rankings as their cheat sheet. Because of this, I will not land guys like McCutchen (ranked 60 on Yahoo), Span (63), Butler (70) etc. who have high upsides. But then they have guys like Chipper (135), Stephen Drew (163), Rios (144), Alfonso Soriano (115) with low ceilings ranked so low. How do I approach these drafts knowing that in order to get a player with high upside, I’ll most likely have to really reach for him? Is it better to draft a lot of those other guys with low ceilings because I am getting good value on them? What are your thoughts, thanks!

    @Steve: you have to change the limit on pitching to 180. and the max teams to 12. other than that i think you’re right.

  109. Critter Nagurski says:
    (link)

    Lots more leagues than I expected. Historically, does anyone know how many teams remain active in the commenter leagues?

  110. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Critter Nagurski: my league was active basically all year, mighta been one guy who bailed, he was the guy who took pitchers in the first 7 rounds…. then rounded out his OF with a guy i wouldn’t put on your team.

  111. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Steve: Yes, the league needs to be Public and Custom.

    @Cheese: Each team’s different. You don’t want a team with all upside and no stability.

  112. Pat says:
    (link)

    I take it were only supposed to join one RCL each?

    Joe B – haha about the girlfriend fantasy league limit. My wife has told me several times this offseason that I can’t have more than 2 teams this year, just because we have a baby girl coming in May! The nerve! Does any other guy here have a girlfriend/wife fantasy league restrictions? I’m worried our better halves may get together and start a union, ‘Girlfriends and Wives Against Excessive Fantasy Balling’

  113. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Pat: Yeah, join one.

  114. Cheese

    Cheese says:
    (link)

    @Grey: I agree Grey, but should I really be reaching so much for these guys with upside? If they don’t pan out, I completely wasted an early round pick. Do you see yourself ever spending a 5th round pick on McCutchen? (In my case 4th round because of 16 team league)

  115. Joe B says:
    (link)

    I sent out the invites and we’ll see who’s really down in a while I hope… I will update later.

  116. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Pat: my wife doesn’t know how many leagues i sign up for, whats wrong with you guys, just say “yes hunny i’m only in ONE league”. LOL

    I basically dont really like doing more than 3. It just gets too much work, annoying, and I end up rooting for every player and rooting against every player.

    Clutch for me was getting internet on the cell. HUGE! Being able to change my line up and make transactions wherever whenever… HUGE.

  117. Grey

    I’ve got five outstanding invites. I’ll give those people until end of day but it’s quite possible RCL #5 will need filler. I’ll keep you posted. -RJ

    I normally just take in info here and haven’t posted before but I’d love to be in a league here too. Any word on the 10th and 11th leagues having people run them yet?

  123. AJ says:

    @Grey Sent an email to steve as the other leagues are full.

    Grey says:

    @HalLeeday34: @AJ: Steve’s league, for all intents and purposes, is filled too.

    We need another organizer. AJ or HalLeeDay34, you guys can be organizers if you like. Up to you.

  125. Mann of Sandd says:

    If you need another organizer let me know. I want in and will do whatever it takes to make it happen!

  127. Tony says:
    (link)

    ANYONE who wants to play in a RCL league and put up a $50 buy in that will ALL be paid out to the top 4 hold off until tonight. We did this last year in my league and it worked well. I dont know if Anthony Gonzalez wants to run that but me and Fred would be in if a guy drops from our leauge OR I will be starting a league later tonight. So there WILL be more….

    I am very pleased to see 10+ leagues already. Awesome tribute to this site.

    ALL: So, will leave the setup for Tony when he gets off 7 EST-ish. Anyone interested in this $50 league should be planning on signing up with Tony.

    @Tony: All good with “send me the money within a week” to validate one’s spot. I guess once we get our 12, Tony will tell us where to send it.

    Any more leagues opening up? The Butteman wants in.

  132. Mothball says:

    @Grey: I’m fairly new here just signed up for RCL #9. I own a print shop and would like to offer to donate a prize. Possibly a Razzball sweatshirt or a really cool satin jacket.

  133. Express34 says:
    (link)

    6 spots are filled already for the league I’m organizing. If you want in, get ‘em while they’re hot!

    @Grey – Could you email the details that I need for setting the site up? Or if it’s referenced in this thread already, just let me know.

  134. brett says:
    (link)

    Hey. Picked a bad day to be away from my computer all morning. I’ll do my best to read all this but i’ll be away from my computer all weekend as well. Really want in one of these leagues. Willing to organize if i can do it next week (or tonight).

    Also, Tony and Fred, i’m down for the $50 league.

    Also, also, Is there any way i can finagle my way into the invite league? How does that work?

  135. Tony says:
    (link)

    @matthole: Ya man I could do one. I am an art teacher. I have all day. Livin’ the dream. I put the bonds trophy on ebay, i believe thats in my write up about it. It was bid up to $6200.00. The bidder of course was a hacked account. I sent an offer to the next couple high bidders, no responses, who knows man, EBAY is a joke for anyhting like that… I did have over 50K people view my artwork though during that span of 10 days (i put it on the DAY after he hit his magic HR, had it planned for over a year, LOL) It was awesome. It was great watching it, hitting refresh and literally 100′s more were viewing it every 15 minutes.

    If you want a trophy for your league I could def’ly do something up, One that you could pass around year to year, or a new one could be made…. just depends how you word it, dont put a year on it and its good for ever, have you seen THE LEAGUE? They had a trophy, very funny show, abotu fantasy football tho….

    @Simply Fred: Ya we’ll get it done. $50 is not much, but it will keep the owners interested and competitive. I will sign it up tonight and post on here again.

    10 more spots for that league open then….

  136. Tony says:
    (link)

    @brett: wait til around 7pm tonight, you’re in… i’ll shoot emails out later.

    Grey can you put me down as the Organizer for league #11 or whatever its at now…. with my email address. I’ll check em later like I said and send you guys out the info. So dont get mad if I dont get back to you in 30 mins like some of these other guys are able to do.

  137. Express34 says:

    8 and counting….

    what happened to the taco bell gift cards? lol

  140. Express34 says:
    (link)

    Up to 9 now. Feel like I should have a criteria for getting the last three spots. You know, first three people to tell me which pitcher has given up the most homeruns in ML history. Or, what’s the equation that determines BABIP. Something fun like that.

    First three people who can answer one of the questions above, get the last spots.

    Bring it on fellow Razzers.

    Whew. That was close. Eastery Sunday draft time huh League 9? Hope you all aren’t the religious type. If so, pray to your God for sweet sweet autodraft picks.

    @John Butte: Email an organizer.

    @Mothball: Thanks, that’s cool of you! Give me your email and I’ll get the details.

    @Express34: Thanks for the update! The league settings should be clear from the post, if not, email me.

    @Tony: You’re now an organizer with a buy-in. If that’s incorrect, let me know.

  143. brett says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Is Tony’s buy-in league going to count with the others, in terms of standings and prizes? If so, i’ll offer up my spot in Express34′s league to someone else.

  144. Express34 says:
    (link)

    Up to 11!

  145. Express34 says:
    (link)

    @brett – Lemme know what you decide to do with the buy-in league. I only have one spot left right now, but am sure I can fill your spot if you leave.

  146. brett says:
    (link)

    @brett: Nevermind. Pretty obvious that it is.

    @Express34: About to send you the official email, but you can take me off your list (trying to limit myself to three or four leagues).

  147. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @brett: Everything is the same with that league except they’re doing a $50 buy-in.

    @Mothball: Cool…

    @Express34: Okay, but you might’ve just lost one in Brett.

  148. Steve says:
    (link)

    @brett: As long as it’s set up the same way as all the others. The buy-in is something completely separate that you guys are doing.

  149. brett says:

    Gotcha. Thanks guys.

  150. Express34 says:

    Down to 10! Good luck in the buy-in league Brett!

  151. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Grey: LOOKS GOOD.

    I’ll check my emails later. So far its me, brett, and fred… shoot the emails to me guys at the address above. If you’re not down to put in $50 dont bother. If you’re not going to pay attention all year dont bother. I’d rather have less a chance at winning and play in a better league than make a couple bucks if i win a crap league. Wait that doesn’t make sense? haha…. Its only my 2nd year of Roto i’ve always been and still am a H2H guy, so its not like you’re joining some shark league…. i wont speak for fred tho i’ve seen some of his IN DEPTH posts in the forum! haha….

    Its gonna be a good year.

  152. Joe B says:
    (link)

    @Probable Party Starter: The date and time for league 9 is not decided yet… waiting for the last two invitees to join, then we’ll decide the date of doomsday. Also, are we cool with second owners in these leagues Grey???

  153. matthole says:
    (link)

    @Tony: very creative stuff….Im sure it will re-garner attention once he Bonds get discussed for the HoF or once he admits steroid use.

    Won my hometown league last year and didnt pick up a trophy yet. Considering fantasy sports is a billion dollar business, there should be a niche in the market for trophies for the league.

  154. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Joe B: Honestly, I don’t think it matters. If others are against it, then I’ll say yes. I’ll let you guys decide.

  155. Tony says:
    (link)

    @brett: @Steve: My League is the same as all other RCL’s except there’s a $50 buy in. Same Settings. Goes towards the Overall Champ Standings. Competing for the Trophy. That I’ll make, lol.

    Shoot me emails, i’ll check later tonight. $50….. i’m out.

    Grey, would love to be an organizer of the 14th league. Already started it on ESPN so people can use this e-mail to contact me if interested.

    @Simply Fred: @Pat: HAHA gimme 10 seconds. I’m setting the league up, its taking me a minute i did it once but didn’t customize it so it only had 10 teams, redoing it…..

    my email is youngy_03@yahoo.com

    there’s an UNDERSCORE in there…. maybe thats why? I have a ton of emails, once i get it set i’ll email you fred, and brett, get signed up then i’ll email the rest, first come first serve….

    oh crap and is it supposed to be 200 innings? thats what its set at? i swear i was reading someone saying something about 180?

    Ok guys i just sent invites out to 12 teams….. i still have like 4 guys in my email inbox I couldnt send them to everyone so i basically sent one to Fred and Brett then went down the line first come first serve….

    If I dont hear back from some of the other guys I’ll shoot emails out to the other guys OK! Sorry if thats inconvenient, but it was kinda hectic getting it all set up! Look for more details on the home page about payouts, etc.

    Good LUCK TO all…..

  198. eltoo says:

    @Grey: Have to limit it to one league per commenter right? I have an invite to the buy in league, but already joined a normal league 1st thing this morning. I’d prefer to do a buy-in, but don’t want to be the guy that commits to a league then bails, i hate that guy. although with all the interest these leagues have been getting I suppose it wouldnt be too hard to replace me.

    And Grey I hope you’re right about your biggest man-crush heading into the 2010 season. I drafted Ian Stewart (late obviously) as my one and only Third Baseman!

    (link)

    i’ve got 8 spots left…. 4 are filled…. my invites are out but anyone else that wants in my league for a $50 buy in send me a email and if someone doesnt sign up i’ll get an invite out them….

    CHECK THE MESSAGE BOARD.

  203. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Grey: i invited eltoo….. should he sign up for mine and delete from his other OR?

  204. Tony says:
    (link)

    7 spots left….. brett sign in, you were basically first and i want you in, but i also wanna fill it as soon as possible.

  205. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Tony: Oh, I thought you were filled. I’ll fix the post. Just let me know when you’re filled. If he wants two leagues, he can. Let’s cap the leagues someone is in at two.

  206. eltoo says:
    (link)

    I’m opting out of the other league. For anyone still looking to join email sean at ogma107@yahoo.com He should have one spot open after I remove my team

  207. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @eltoo: Go with two leagues if you want. But if you think two is too much, then opt out.

  208. eltoo says:
    (link)

    @Grey: I’ve deleted one of my teams already. I’ll just stick with one. I assume thats what you prefer and I don’t want you to have to change it to two leagues per commenter on my behalf. I assume that makes things kind of wonky when determining the final standings

  209. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @eltoo: Rudy and I discussed and thought two leagues each was fine. You do what you do. But I’m updating Sean’s league now so don’t switch back.

  210. Tony says:
    (link)

    anyone else interested in joining league 11, $50 league, there are now 6 spots open, i have invites sent to all 6 spots but one owner just told me he joined a different league SO i already sent out another invite to someone else (john), there might be more of that, if so i’ll keep your email and if i dont hear from the owners i have invited…. you’re next on the list.

    I just joined league 5 and it says I am co-owning a team with someone else? I’m at work so I can’t really look into it… So are there too many owners or do I need to edit something?

    @mic: Email your organizer… I think they probably sent you the wrong invite.

  222. lattewarrior says:

    Mic,

    I think I pasted your info into the same owner info windows as Kyle, thus sending out two invites for the same spot. When Kyle accepted first, you became the Second Owner, which shouldn’t be confused for the Second Shooter. I’m an idiot, true, but shame on ESPN for making such a thing possible. Grey, can we make this right by getting Mic into another league?

  223. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @mic: There’s a spot in the second league. Please try that first so we can fill it up. If that doesn’t work, then try 14.

  224. Tony says:

    @brett: BRETT you are in, awesome man….
    @terry grant: i’ll keep you posted. i wish i could just send out invites to all then whoever fills it fills it…. kinda a weird way ESPN has it?

    @eltoo: you’re the man

    I’m retiring until tomm. I’ll check in the morning quick before work. After that I wont be home til like 6pm EST again. So i’ll see whats going on then with the league. There’s only 3 spots left, 9 are FULL.

    Andrew A.

    @Tony: Cool, I’ll update it.

    @anon: Ha!

    @Robert: Gotta give time for organizers to check their emails. You should hear back by tomorrow. If not, check in again. Last year weeks kept filling up for a few weeks. I’m sure there will be more.

    @Grey: Grey, it’s nice to be back. Razzfootball is great, but Baseball is the Bomb. Here on the East Coast we have been getting our butt kicked with serial snow storms. We are dealing with a bad case of Cabin Fever, and the only thing getting me through is the vision of spring, and the thought of opening day for my Metropolitans. I can envision four starters vying for comeback of the year honors, David Wright finding his lost power, Reyes back in form, Jason Bay having an All-Star year, Danny Murphy hitting .330, and even Ollie Perez solving his head problems and winning 15 games. Well, you know, Ya gotta Believe. The only difference this year, is that I won’t draft those suckas. And you taught me that. Using Greysian methods, I am presently in 1st and 2nd place in two Yahoo Basketball leagues, and I never watch a minute of Pro Basketball all year. Thanks in advance for your priceless, although at times arcane, wisdom.

    I would love to get in a league. I emailed Larry. For anyone interested i love fantasy baseball, follow it intensely, i have a great knowledge of it, im very active, and an active trader. if you need someone for a leauge, email me at jumpshot3124@aol.com

    Since I got into Tony’s money league, I have now dropped out of RCL #6. So Jasonbayniac – greeksuperfreak [at] hotmail.com should have one spot open. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    how is the competitiveness factor calculated?

    I’m wondering what will happen if the league doesn’t wind up with 12 teams.

  253. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Critter Nagurski: The league won’t be included if there’s not 12 teams. I see no reason why this would be the case with any league.

  254. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Grey: I was kinda wondering how the competitive factor works too? I mean if one team is scoring SUPER high and another is the same score, what makes the difference? in the overall standings?

  255. 5 openings remain in league #15.

  256. @Tony: Here’s how it works. We total up the stats in each of the 10 categories for each league. We determine an average. Each league’s total is divided into that average (this is reverse for ERA/WHIP where lowest is best) So if your league has hit 3% more HRs than the average, your league gets 1.03 for HRs. We then average those ten totals and multiply by 100.

    If your league is completely average, your competitive index is 100.

    The variations by league are pretty small. Below are the indices for last year:

    A Latin 9 100.00
    Alex PEDriguez 100.42
    Big Blue Marble 101.89
    Coitus 99.50
    Gorditas Supreme 100.90
    Honey Nut Ichiros 98.70
    Neologasm 98.75
    Original Recipe 101.37
    TFP Co-Op League 98.47

    @Simply Fred: if only a guy or two from my bigger money league were as PROMPT! i’ve got a guy who owes me from LAST YEAR! Fantasy baseball is not a bar, its not CHEERS, there’s not a tab you can just run! hence why i’ll just delete a team if I dont get the money in before the draft…. thats what we’re going to in my main league. Sometimes you just have to light a little fire under some people!

  270. eltoo says:

    @Tony: money collection is definitely the down side of cash leagues….if I were you I would set a closer due date for payment. Might be tough to replace negligent managers a week before the draft, especially if you want money in hand from a replacement manager before the draft starts.

  276. eltoo says:

    @AL KOHOLIC: I believe there are three spots open, but invites have been sent out for them. I think Tony, the organizer of the league, is unable to field emails during work hours, so that may be why you haven’t heard back. I’m sure he will move to fill those spots soon if he doesn’t hear back from the managers he invited. But like I said, I don’t think he is able to address any of it until later in the day.

    @Tony: March 1st sounds good. At least that way it gives you some cushion to warn/pester managers to get it in even if they miss the dead line before you have to bring in new managers. Mine is on the way so however long it takes to get from boston to ohio

    I just send an email to jasonbayniac to snag the last spot in that league. If that is all ready full, I will keep trying. I must say, it is insane how quickly these leagues have filled up. This is blowing away the five leagues you started with. Should be a very competitive year and I’m glad to play in my first razzball baseball league. Also, getting a call from Captain Spalding (Sid Haig) would be fantastic, so would Kane Hodder.

    @Grey:
    I haven’t heard anything from Erik. Do you have any idea when you guys will stop filling up leagues?

    Grey says:

    @Matthew Thieroff: You emailed him? He should get back to you either way, let me check on him.

  358. hey guys, the league is tentatively full. I got about 2 dozen responses in the last 24 hours, so I have not been able to respond to everyone.

    I have a guy and 2 friends that committed to 3 spots, but he has not yet responded to me. I have another guy who has not responded. So I think spots will open, but my waiting list is already like 10 deep, so if you emailed me after like 3:00pm yesterday, then its not looking good.

    Just an update.

    @Grey:
    Sounds like 19 is full… is there anyway we can get another one going?

    @Grey: This crazy, last year had 9 divisions, we are already up to 20 and this post started a week ago. Apparently doesn’t pay to not read your sight everyday.

    Razzball is getting way too popular.

    Good for you, bad for the those of us who are trying to keep this our little secret.

    @Grey: I had an owner drop. Please send me an email if you want to join our league. Our draft day is looking like it’s going to be March 7 around 10 pm EST. If that works for you, sign up quick.

  380. oh for crying in the piss, it just figures that a guy whose email is ‘dearththreat@…’ asks for a spot and then disappears.

    league 15 has one opening. looks like we’re leaning toward a weeknight draft fairly close to opening day. if that sways anyone one way or the other.

    hit me! johnmurn@gmail.com

    My league was full for 1/2 a day and then another owner dropped. I need one more. Send me an email and you’ll get one of those nifty, customized invites from me. Okay, maybe not. But you’ll definitely get an invite.

    i need some people for a league. it is 25 bucks, auction draft, standard scoring. the only caveat is we are all kind of crude so need to be able to bust out some prick jokes

    I have had a lot of people ask me if we have to keep the draft pick selection time at 120 seconds. Are we allowed to change this to 90 seconds or do you really want us to keep it at 90?

    @Grey: Hey Grey, we’ve got a full league (#3) but our commissioner seems to have gone MIA – Paper Planes. Has Figgy posted on razzball lately? He doesn’t seem to be responding to emails from multiple league managers re: scheduling the draft time. We’ve obviously got a couple weeks to spare but would also like to firm up the draft deets. I know it’s a pain in the ass, but if possible would you mind emailing him (kkerrigan06 [at] gmail.com) to see what’s up?

    We had someone drop out with less than a days notice before the draft in league 19. I am going to try and get someone, but if anyone can make a draft on Sunday March 14, 2010, at 9:30 PM ET, please email me so we dont have to reschedule the draft. Thanks.

  416. Matthew Thieroff says:

    Sent him an email… I have a few people in mind too. We should be ok. If not, I will just reschedule the draft.

  417. Brade says:

    Grey, my league has reached the limit for invites, although there’s a chance a couple of these spots could open back up. You can go ahead and set to “full” for right now.

  418. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Matthew Thieroff: Okay, let me know.

    @Brade: Okay, thanks for the heads up. If you have extras, please send them back to the blog.

  419. I applied to a few teams earlier and ended up just missing the cut and put on ‘reserve’. Anyone who has a spot or cancellation, please let me know.

    the spot has tentatively been filled by tom. I will post if the spot opens back up. Thanks for the interest.

    I was out of town the last few days watching my alma mater cornell in the sweet 16 in syracuse, so my responses have been slow.

  443. apparently one of my guys dropped (league 14)! we’re drafting thursday at 9 pm eastern. need one ASAP! email me: johnmurn@gmail.com

  444. Grey

    Grey says:

    @john murn: Who dropped? You should also post in the comments section of every new post as they come out until you find someone. Try and forums too.

  445. the dude whose email is: darththreat@gmail.com

    never got a real name out of him. apparently he’s been lost to the dark side.

  446. …and just like that we’re full up again. thanks.

  447. I have been offered Brad Hawpe and Matt Capps for Manny- Is this a good deal? I could really use a closer but would this make sense? Hawpes stats are more than serviceable and I have plenty of power on my team already and I get 1 of the best closers (really?) going so far. With Manny being just this side of 40 is this the time to let him go? I would miss the Rainman of hitting but it fills a huge hole with Saves that I have. Again- does this make sense?
