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

Suffering through a first half of the fantasy baseball season that you wish would go away?  Owning Delgado, Peavy, Nolasco, Aramis, Volquez and Reyes got you down?  Wanna draft Ben Zobrist in the first round? Simply want another team because your fantasy baseball obsession hasn’t pulled you sufficiently far enough away from your loved ones? Well, here’s your chance. Midseason Fantasy Baseball Leagues!  So do you crave fame amongst eleven other random people you don’t really know?  Or simply have a lot of time on your hands because you can make your Economic Stimulus Tax Rebate last longer than others?  Then here’s your chance!

Unfortunately, ESPN doesn’t do midseason fantasy baseball leagues, so we’re not able to do a master standings (which was updated yesterday) for the midseason leagues. (We need to be able to access the leagues to do a master standings.) So the only real incentive to join one of these leagues is you’ll get some worthy competition.  And, as someone who has dabbled in free leagues before, they suck with eleven other random doodes that you can’t talk trash to or rely on to be present.  So I’ll open up the comments to you guys (and 3 girls) to form leagues here if you like.  I suggest mixed leagues, 12 team, 5×5, 5 OFs, 9 pitchers, 20 game eligibility.  I believe Yahoo’s midseason fantasy baseball leagues begin June 22nd, so you need to act fast!

If interested, please contact the commissioner — Josh — iamjoshlacey [at] gmail.com

    I would do one, Reyes, Peavy, Lidge, Quentin……

    If Sparkakis/Wandy for Haren/Wood

    Sparkakis is on my bench

    @I’m Keith Hernandez: I meant would you do that trade is Sparkakis is on your bench?

    Would you rather have Hamels or Haren going forward?
    Thanks!

  5. Broadstreetbrawler says:

    @Broadstreetbrawler: make that Berkman Cain and Alexei for Ervin Santana, Miggy Tejada and Albert

    The league I’m currently playing in is boring and rude. I’d love to join a midseason league of Razzball commenters if one is available!

    @spamcakes: Cool, now you need ten more guys. No idea what demand’s like so guess just have to wait and see. You or DrEasy should be the commissioner and set it up if you want or wait on someone else.

    @DrEasy: See above comment.

    @spamcakes: Are you saying you want in a midseason league? I’d prefer Hamels.

    @martin: Meche

    @Broadstreetbrawler: I’d take Pujols, but it’s close in the first one. I wouldn’t do the Alexei one.

    At this point is Scott Posednik better than Luke Scott. Im thinking about dropping Scott because Posedik had a great week and he is jus floating on waiver wires and nobody sees him

    @G: Luke Scott’s a power threat, Pods is a steals threat, depends what you need.

    @Josh L: Corrected the comment number. But now you have to post as Josh L or choose a username. If you’ll commish, that would be great. Do you mind me posting your email in the post so people can contact you?

    @brad: Could get Zimm, doubt he gets Youuuuuk. I’d take either for Quentin though.

  33. Josh L says:

    Grey…not sure if you know him well but I am friends with Cory Humes from MVN – he’s going to join the league as well if you or Rudy wanted to get in on this

    Grey says:

    @Josh L: I believe I’m already in a league with Cory. I’m not joining this league. But if Rudy or Baron wants to, it’s up to them. I already have my hands filled.

    @martin: Martin email Josh if you want in.

    @Josh L:
    Josh, I’m a long time reader, first time caller. I’d love to join the league and would bust my ass to kick yours. I sent you an email about 2 mins ago, can we make this happen?

    A Saturday draft would be stellar.

  36. DrEasy says:
    (link)

    @Josh L: I’d prefer Friday evening if possible.

    @Grey: should i roll with elijah dukes, ian stewart, or dare i say it… re-pick up david “where did i put my HGH eyedrops?” ortiz for my UTIL spot?

    My team is AVG and SB heavy, middle of the pack HR

    I posted this earlier as Longoria/Branyan/Joba for Halladay/Carpenter/Bourn with me getting the Longoria side and you said I should do it because I have enough pitching.

    Would you do it if it was Longoria/Branyan/Joba for Halladay/Carp/Choo?

  44. martin says:

    josh- just the heads up, i havnt got the email yet. However if the draft is this saturday, i sadly would not be able to attend.

    Dunn and Shields for J-Roll? Which side?

  50. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Sos: It’s fair, I’d take Dunn and Shields in a vacuum.

  51. This deal is pending in my league: who wins?

    Berkman/pierre/ mike gonzalez/ Billingsley

    for

    Markakis/Abreu/Hamels

    I’m in first the guy right on my ass is getting the Billingsley side…. I dont like it.

    Not saying its not fair but I dont think its a good deal.

  52. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Tony Y: It’s fair, I’d take the Berkman side, barely.

    @Chase: A little puzzling…

  55. big o says:
    (link)

    @Grey:
    dunn and shields in a vacuum , or , prince albert in a can ?

    not condoning any one political view , but , i could see you as having been an on-campus sds organizer , back in the woodstock era .
    charismatic .

  56. I'm Keith Hernandez says:
    (link)

    @Chase: @Steve: It was probably done offline and manually entered. Another possibility was that they adjusted the league setting which forces a redraft, and the LM had to manually enter them. OR Maybe Posada was the #1 pick……

  57. paulzone says:
    (link)

    who would you rather have for your 5th and 6th starters? pick two please out of lowe, smoltz and garza from here on out.

    if it helps, our pitching cat: w, l, s, hld, k, gidp, era, whip

  58. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Chase: Keith Hernandez hit the nail on the head. Anthony had the wrong league settings so he had to manually enter everyone’s team. It’s all good.

    @big o: Ha!

  59. paulzone says:
    (link)

    @Grey: a little surprising – i would have thought you’d put smoltz in there. now you got me thinking. would you sell high on haren and keep all 3 of them to go with bills, beckett and weaver?

    I quit baseball when it was still tee-ball. That was literally the single worst appearance I’ve ever seen in my life

    (link)

    @anon: ha,i actually had perez on my team earlier this year when he had about the same results

  65. from a life long tribe fan…… this is getting old…..

    pure ugliness, bring up some triple A guys, they have to be better than this…. UNREAL

    How is that pen two years removed from one of the best in MLB that bad? Half the guys are the same…. it disgusts me.

  66. @grey and Anyone

    what do you think of Carlos Quentin and CHOO for OSWALT/H. Street?

  67. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @paulzone: I’d sell Smoltz before his first start. Or Haren and keep Smoltz.

    @Tony Y: I’d take the Oswalt side.

  68. And does anyone else use yahoo and have the premium set up? I use to go to transaction trends where it showed who’s getting picked up the most, etc and the top guy would have like 1000′s of pickups… right now that barabaro can. from ATL is at the top with only like 600 pickups, most guys next on the list only have like 100 pickups or so? WHAT GIVES?

    Usually it was like 10,000 or something then a guy would have 7,000 etc? weird?

  69. PJtres says:

    Hey grey… do you like theriot or scutaro for the rest of the year? is there a huge difference? we count K’s, BB, SB, TB, HR, RBI, AVG

  70. big o says:
    (link)

    did he break his wrist ?

  71. Dexter says:
    (link)

    I need power and sbs. Do you think a trade of my Youkilis and Cain is okay for his Braun and Reynolds? I also have Josh Johnson, Verlander, Ubaldo, Oswalt, Lackey, Nolasco, Webb. I could also throw in McCutchen or Morgan.

    also, is papelbon/rios fair for miggy cabrera?

  72. big o says:

    this costas interview on mlb channel , with gibson and mccarver is wonderful .
    costas ties it in with a previous interview , with kaline and horton …. and gets them to comment on THAT .
    fantastic look at tigers/cards world series of ’68 .
    must see tv .

    any word on tori hunter’s injury ?
    i kinda got side-tracked .

    who was it that wanted to punch out mccarver (the interviewer) ?
    i forget .

  75. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Tony Y: I don’t know, sorry.

    @PJtres: I’d take Theriot, but little difference.

    @big o: No idea on Torii. I’ll try to check out the Costas interview. Thanks for the tip.

  76. big o says:
    (link)

    and , just for old time sake , i’d like to see a re-play of the dibble/sweet lou club-house clash .
    it’s an old memory , but i think dibble “clocked” pinella .

  77. Steve says:
    (link)

    @Grey: @big o: Although something of a baseball non-scholar myself, I’d always thought Gibson had a pretty good claim to being the greatest living pitcher ahead of Clemens.

    Different pitcher-friendly era of course, but incredible peripherals and all those complete games etc. And was nails in the post-season.

  78. PJtres says:
    (link)

    @ grey…in that case – i have hardy, theriot, and now scutaro (by trade).
    a guy who needs SS approached me for theriot

    do you think its a decent deal to trade theriot for baker?
    or try to give theriot and something to get a wainwright or bedard?

  79. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Steve: I think Maddux, Randy and Pedro have a place in that argument.

    @PJtres: I’d take Baker there. But Theriot and something for Wainwright would be good, just not sure what the something is.

  80. Steve says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Quite so (as I think we’ve discussed previously).

    Although Randy’s mullet has to count against him.

    @Grey:
    I am digging that pick up.. He was my only starting bat tonight.

  87. Robert says:
    (link)

    Is Wainwright and Lackey(after tonight’s performance) enough to offer for Bay or Braun? Or is that insulting? Other team does need pitching.

    @RT: Nice

    @Robert: It’s not insulting.

    @Steve: yeah i know. and its weird that the first place guy is the only one not picking the same position as everyone else in the same round

  96. Steve says:

    @Chase: I think Grey said above that there was some problem with the draft and that all the resuots had to be re-entered by hand.

    Looks like it’s one position per round. Starting from catcher, by the looks ;-)

    Sandoval and Fielder were my only hitters to go tonight. I have more production from those two than my entire team the last 3 days.
