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

It’s that time again.  No, not time to take a whizz.  It’s time to join some fantasy baseball leagues that you abandon by June 1st and then pretend to never visit the site again that sponsors them because you’re a scared baby inside that ten inch crust of orange Cheetos stain.  That’s all right, we here at Razzball have figured out a way around all of you nogoodniks sucking the fun out of our 2009 fantasy baseball leagues.  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’. 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, 5×5, 5 OFs, 9 pitchers, 20 game eligibility.  The fantasy leagues will be played in ESPN and they will be free to join.  Peace out, Yahoo.

We’re going to start with five leagues of 12 and see how we do from there.  Each league will need 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.  You can 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.  (The spots open will be updated by me as I hear from the organizers.)

Now for the BIG prize!  I know, you can hardly wait.  As most of you know, I started this blog last year while on strike with the WGA.  During the strike, there was a contest sponsored by the world leader in indigestion, Taco Bell, to write a catchy phrase for their sauce packet.  The winner would receive a year’s supply of Taco Bell.  Well, let’s just say, some doode showed up at my door recently with a seven-inch stack of Taco Bell $5 coupons.  So I’m passing a part of my indigestion winnings off on you!  The overall winner will receive $50 worth of Taco Bell coupons.  If that doesn’t get the competitive juices (and gases) going, I don’t know what will.

    Two catchers?

    Grey says:

    @Steve: Rudy and I aren’t big fans of two catcher leagues. Majority can win out if you guys feel different.

  3. lattewarrior says:

    Grey,

    Count me in as an organizer.

    If you’d like to be in a commentator league headed up by Yours Truly, please inquire to:
    arge3[at]yahoo[dot]com

    R.J.

  4. Steve says:

    @Grey: The default is one I think. Does it need to be the same across all leagues? One catcher is fine by me FWIW.

  5. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @lattewarrior: Okay, thanks so much, RJ! In a few hours, I’ll add you to the post if we don’t get a abundance of high comment count people. I’m sure most will just want to be in a league.

  6. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Steve: For Rudy to figure out the overall champ, all leagues will need to be the same.

  7. Anthony G says:
    (link)

    I would like to be an organizer. Any chance I can make it an AL only league? I’ve been in fantasy sports for about 7 years and never tried the AL only thing. Also I have commish experience for the last 3 years and can rally pot together given my account receievable skils.

    Anthony

  8. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Anthony G: Great, you can be an organizer as long as no one with a high comment count wants to be one. It can’t be an AL-Only league because Rudy plans on combining all of the leagues at the end to declare one definitive winner. If you want to try and get a pot together for your specific league (or other leagues), you’re welcome to. I don’t want to be in charge of that.

    Also, I need your contact info, so if you are an organizer I can put it in the post above.

  9. Anthony G says:

    Grey,

    Anyone can contact me at AnthonyGonzalez322 at hotmail.com!

    Sweet. I want to figure out a way to filter out lame GMs. They are no fun. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Grey, I will be an organizer. I’ve been a fantasy commish for a very long time, I love Taco Bell, and I hate to lose.

    @Everyone: What better way to get ready for a Razzball league than with a Razzball Mock Draft?
    Funny you should say that, Steve, because there’s one planned for Thursday at 8pm EST. 12 teams, 6 spots left.
    All the details are here:
    http://razzball.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1210
    Over and out.

    @The Dude: @Anthony G: @lattewarrior: First of all, thanks so much for taking the reins. Contact me at grey [at] razzball.com with any questions or comment right onto to this post (or any post that has me as an author) if you want me to update how many spots are available for your league. I’m sure Steve can also be of assistance if you need to know the ins and outs of uploading pics to the forum and whatnot for when you have to do updates.

    @Cookie’s Monsters: Put your cookies where your mouth is, and choose a league organizer and join one of the leagues above.

    @Grey: I don’t want to be an organizer. I wana be the guy that sits back an bitches about the commissioner all the time.

  17. Grey

    Grey says:

    @IowaCubs: While I liked the idea of the charity donations, I couldn’t figure out how to make it work. If you want to do it in your RCL, go for it.

    @BigFatHippo: I believe P0rk passed the bar and then vanished, so don’t know what happened to him. If he wants to participate, it’s fine with me.

  23. The Dude says:
    (link)

    Do you just want me to set up the league (using the standards set of course), or how do you want this to work? Would you like a specific title to the league for name recognition? Is is safe to assume that we can draft anytime before the season officially starts?

  24. PWNightmare says:
    (link)

    Finally! I’ve been itching to get the ball rolling.

    @Grey: What was the winning one-liner?

  25. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @The Dude: The league standards will need to be dictated by Rudy because he’s going to statistically weigh the leagues to declare an overall champion.

    I believe 12 team, 5 x 5, standard categories, one catcher, 9 pitchers, three man bench is the way we are going.

    You can name the leagues whatever since I don’t think there’s any way to see them.

    And yeah, any time before the season begins.

  26. PWNightmare says:
    (link)

    It’s going to be interesting to watch mad scrambles for players after each Razzball post. Looking forward to this season.

    @Grey (in my best Ralphie from A Christmas Story “Be Sure to Drink Your Ovaltine” voice) I’m with… Food?

    My Commenter League is up to three. Whoo-hoo! Keep those letters coming!

    @lattewarrior: Including you or no? 8 or 9 spots open?

  29. Ballin says:
    (link)

    How do I join one of the leagues. Do I just send a email? and den wat?

  30. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Ballin: Just send an email to one of the 4 organizers and then they’ll tell you where the draft is gonna be. Also, pay attention in the forums for any league info. But that brings up a good point…

    @lattewarrior: @The Dude: @Anthony G: @Steve: You guys should set up a thread in the forum that says something like “RCL (Your league’s number”) then people can stay up to date on what’s going down for each league. It also gives everyone a place to discuss what dates work for them for the league.

    Wow, way to go A Rod. Somebody finally tells the truth, who’d have thought it would be him?

    Man, if losing to 13 other commenters wasn’t bad enough last year, I get to be beaten down by leagues upon leagues of commenter schmohawks! Oh the humanity.

    Grey any chance you can tell us what your spicy slogan was?

    Also, now that the World Canadian Bureau is no longer on strike, can you tell us what you’re working on?

  33. Hank

    Hank says:

    @BigFatHippo: What about Andy Pettite? Telling the truth is the way go. Clemens screwed the pooch for swizz.

  34. BigFatHippo says:
    (link)

    @Hank: Yeah, Pettite admitted to taking them to help get over an injury. A Rod actually admitted to taking them to improve his game, didn’t see that coming.

  35. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @BigFatHippo: I actually like him more now. Is it just me?

    @Hank: Slogan was “I’m With Food.”

  36. Hank

    Hank says:
    (link)

    @BigFatHippo: Yeah, and for a 3 year period. Steroids don’t bother me, though. I’m in the, “If they made a pill that made you better at your job, would you take it?” Hells yeah!

  37. BigFatHippo says:

    @Grey: I’m sure it won’t be just you.

    The thing that impresses me is that he didn’t wait a month and try to spin it with agent and lawyer speak.

    My packet of Steroid Controversy hot sauce reads, “I’m with Schilling.”

    @Grey: Hehe, nice. I bet getting a year’s supply of any fast food wouldn’t be all that it’s cracked up to be. I mean I can eat my fair share of JBCs at 2am, but that only like 3 or 4 or 5….oh who am I kidding, I need to win one of those damn contests.

  47. BigFatHippo says:

    Gentleman,

    Seven spots remain in the league I’m overseeing. Hurry, or be jettisoned to the kids table.

    Edit “Gentleman” to “Gentlemen”

    [sigh]

  50. Here is the league format:

    Create a Custom League in ESPN

    Name: Call it ‘RCL’ ______ Division (get creative on the Division name)
    12 Team League

    Just maintain all the defaults they have:
    – Default Roster settings (C/1B/2B/SS/3B/5 OFs/MI/CI/9 P) + 3 Bench and 1 DL
    – Default 22 GS max per pitching slot (basically capping at 188 starts)
    – Default 5X5 Scoring
    – All MLB Players
    – Yes to Observe ESPN’s Undroppable List
    – Yes to make league viewable to public (we’ll link from our site)
    – Etc.

  51. Steve says:

    @Grey: Yup. PM’d you right back.

  52. lattewarrior says:

    RCL TFP Co-Op is established and invites have been sent. One question: I’m seeing under the default settings that the rosters include 5 OF spots. Is this correct?

    I’m in. havent commented in a while, or too often. just lurking when I have the time. but very ready for leagues to start and baseball to begin.

    @johnson: Cool, glad to see you again. Make sure to send an email to a league organizer.

  55. lattewarrior says:

    6 spots remain in the RCL/TFP Co-Op League.

    @Get Figgy With It: Organizers are filled. To be in a league, just email one of the above folks listed in the post. If there’s need for more organizers, you’ll be first alternate.

  59. Steve says:

    @Grey: Do you think we need a Razzball Commenter League section in the forums?

  60. Grey

    Grey says:

    3 spots remain in RCL/TFP Co-Op League. Do I get $5 in Taco Bell cash for filling my league first?

    @Vince: Nice!

    @lattewarrior: You go to the nearest Taco Bell and tell them the guy who wrote your sauce packet says it’s on the house. On the house a’la Deniro in Goodfellas.

  67. lattewarrior says:

    @Grey: I hope you incorporate “Sauce Packets Writer” into your resume. That, and/or “Fast Food Heavy.”

  68. Chase says:
    (link)

    I’ve already spoke with the Taco Bell in my area. I gave them a date and time to have 10 Grilled Stuft Chicken Burritos ready for me when I walk in. The rest of you girls can go get a 12 dollar salad from Souper Salad.

    Put that in your salad and dress it.

    @Vince: Fantasy baseball razzball style is a drug all to itself.
    @Steve: Done

    Hippo, thanks for the heads up.

    Grey and Rudy – Good show! Adds a whole new twist.

    Gotta go get my Pedroia shirt out of the mothballs as we start talking baseball, steroids, and the temperatures are touching 50s this week in CT.

    @Chase: Haha

    Was just getting ready to say we need to wait on the original RCL and give BSA, Doc, Chase, cruisinkc, etc. time to check in.

    We know you’re here, and Iowa and Baron will be. Shout out other guys, and 1 gal.

    @BSA: Ha

    I’m gonna go on record and state that these leagues will be the most competitive of all leagues any of us have played (outside of our respective money leagues of course).

    In the immortal words of Flounder, “This is gonna be greaaaaaaat!!!!”

  81. They’d all have to be the exactly the same in order for Rudy to pick the overall winner, yes?

    @Steve: I tried to post under another identity but it didn’t show up. Sorry to you and the board for comments #84 and 85.

    I was “The Schmohawks” last year, finishing in sixth. I’d like to sign up for the original RCL league, ’09 edition, if there’s still room. Thanks.

    Does anyone know where I could find general player preseason projections/rankings for previous years? Gotta prove a point to someone in my keeper league and google is letting me down.

    I’ve been lurking on this site for over a year without making a comment. OK – enough with the pleasantries…

    I’d love to join a league. I have one question: can I co-manage a team with a friend? We’re both active in three other leagues and we have entertained the idea of managing a team together instead of competing against each other.

  110. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @AZ Bobblehead: Good to have you finally commenting. I have no problem with multiple owners per team as long as one of you stays active. Just follow the steps provided, i.e., contact an organizer that has an open spot.

  111. Cookie's Monsters says:
    (link)

    I’d like to lobby for another Utility spot, a 162 games played limit, a 1500 IP limit, and a 2nd DL spot – I think that’s all pretty standard……and getting rid of the Can’t Cut list (if a Pujols etc. goes down with season ending surgery it would be ridiculous) unless Commissioners can/will manually do that kind of drop for us….but I would assume everyone in these leagues should know what they’re doing and shouldn’t need a Can’t Cut List.

    @Cookie’s Monsters: I have no problems with those things, but Rudy needs to sign off because he’s the one doing the league competitiveness so we can compare all teams. I’ll notify him of your comment.

  113. @Cookie’s Monsters: Hmm. Good suggestions. Here’s my quick take. 2nd Utility – no. We’re big proponents on 1 C and 1 UTIL. We do all our Point Shares on these universes. We’d be hypocrites if we had it otherwise in the RCL. 162 GP…if ESPN has it, I’m fine w/ it I guess. Not sure if it really plays a huge role, though…what’s the worst case – someone has good bench mgmt skills and gets 168 games out of a position? 1500 IP – I’m open for an IP limit vs GS. Seems six and half dozen – hard to build up huge IPs without starters so 108 GS should do the same trick. Can’t cut list – gave it thought but felt it better to be safe. If a guy gets injured, ESPN will take him off the list. Just don’t want the whole league standings marred b/c someone takes a strong stance on Ryan Howard after a bad April….2 vs. 1 on DL is fine w/ me…

    Let’s get some POVs going in the RCL to see if everyone’s in favor of these changes…the only one I’d say is a non-starter is 2 UTIL vs. 1…

    I posted once last year and got a nasty reply from Grey but that will not keep me from trying to win his yummy Taco Bell coupons… getty up!!

    I’ve always been a proponent of IP/GS floors as opposed to ceilings. Unless there is going to be a max AB, I can’t justify a max IP/GS

    I just got an email from corey that his league is full. Is there another one coming?

  117. Dave says:
    (link)

    Same here, Corey said that he had to turn quite a few away. His sig says that he is the head wrestling coach at a college so I guess it’s better that I did not get in his league anyway. Would not want a pissed wrestling coach after me in late august cause i’m spanking him in a fantasy baseball league… i’m cust kayin..

    @Dave: We all have bad days. Glad you’re back.

    @arthur: Okay, I’m rounding up another organizer right now. Stay tuned…

  119. Dave says:

    Get figgy with it??

  120. Winson says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey. I’d like organize a league if you don’t mind. Just give me the details, or email me so we can discuss it.

  121. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Dave: I think Get Figgy Wit It wants to. He mentioned being an organizer above.

    @Winson: You need to set up the league by accepting emails from 11 others and then update the league occasionally in the forums. See the pretty pictures link I put in the above post. Figgy With It will have first dibs if he wants to though since he asked yesterday.

  122. sean says:

    I’m hardly a tried-and-true Razzball vet, but it’s amazing how readers are coming out in droves for the RCL.

  123. rhymenoceros says:

    I’d love to be in a league with people who actually give a damn. Nothing is worse than having a bunch of assmonkies crap out half-way through the season. Love the site and the comments everyone is leaving. Great stuff!

  124. vinko says:

    @Grey: Been out of town. Hope there is still a spot somewhere in the RCL!

  125. Grey

    Grey says:

    @vinko: We’ll have a new organizer up in a few and then you can contact them.

  126. Grey

    Grey says:

    @The Dude: Thanks for setting up something in the forums too. Much appreciated.

  127. DocNo1 says:

    so are there any, you know, razzball leagues going?

  128. AZ Bobblehead says:
    (link)

    I had to pass on Anthony’s league because I’m too cheap for the buy in. Any other leagues opening up soon?

  129. Ballin says:

    Is there any more room in any of the leagues guys?

  130. BigFatHippo says:

    @Grey: Wow doode, you’re a hit.

  131. sneauxman says:

    I’m interested once another league opens up.

  132. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    Okay, I gave Figgy some time and he’s not getting back so Winson if you’re out there. You’re up. Put your email in the comments and I’ll update the post.

    @BigFatHippo: And you know that.

  133. Anthony Gonzalez says:
    (link)

    There is probably enough interest for another league. Props to WInson for stepping up. I’m down to 5 spots left

  134. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Anthony Gonzalez: I’m confused. You have five spots left, or you’re filled up?

    Winson, we’ll still need you if you’re out there.

  135. Dave says:
    (link)

    Willing to join either Anthony or Wilsons league… how much is the entry fee to your league wilson? It said $50 earlier but you stated you were going to hold, did you make up you mind already?

    Grey are you in any of these leagues?

  136. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Dave: Rudy and I will be setting up blogger leagues for ourselves and other bloggers.

    As for the RCLs, just hold tight, it’s only February 10th we’ll get everyone in a league that wants to be in one.

  137. Anthony Gonzalez says:
    (link)

    The buy in is $50 bucks. My mind is made up. I want Taco bell and money to show for my win this year.

  138. Turnip

    Turnip says:

    I’m in like Flynn! Eating at taco bell for free will just sweeten the dealio. I swear I commented at least once last year.

  139. The Dude says:
    (link)

    RCL Coitus Division is in discussion about an entry fee. Maybe Winson can run a league that’s free of charge (per his request when inquiring about my division), and I could be the league with a fee?

  140. Ballin says:
    (link)

    No need to worry right? there will be still be leagues around the end of march right?

  141. BigFatHippo says:
    (link)

    Chill out peeps, the whole idea of the Razzball Commenters Leagues is…………………..We Do It For Fun!

    You guys that are trying to make it a $50 buy in are defeating that purpose. We kicked around the idea of making it for charity but agreed that can’t work, because none of us know each other.

    Look, the players that come here are some of the finest players in America. Let’s crown a champion, no cash involved, that just leads to more headaches for Grey and Rudy.

    So Hippo proposes this……………………………

    Winner gets a custom made shirt crowning the Razzball champ, no money involved, just Pride!!! (and 50 bucks worth of acid reflux)

    How bout it Grey?

  142. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @BigFatHippo: The whole thing kinda puts me in a weird position. I would hate for everyone to say yes to $50 then October comes and there’s no money from your leaguemates. But on the other hand, you’re all adults, I can’t tell anyone what they can and cannot do. I took the charity thing under consideration and decided that it’s unfair for people who don’t want to part with cash to exclude them from the fun. So I decided no charity. I feel there shouldn’t be a league playing for money either, but that’s further out of my control.

  143. PWNightmare says:

    I still have a few hundred coming to me from leagues past because no one ever pays the piper. Is the grand prize not Taco bell? Where is the furnace in my apartment?

    Grey: Love your site. Been a devoted reader – religious even – from the start. I would like to be a league organizer, if possible. I have 15 years experience running leagues and keeping things fun and more than 20 playing this game. Did I mention your site is quite good? (sunriseguy1@hotmail.com)

  146. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Sage: Okay, you’re the organizer if we need a 7th league, until then join Figgy’s league. Then we’ll pull you out and put someone else in if you need to be an organizer. Thanks for volunteering!

  147. Sage says:

    Anyone still have openings in a league? I’m new to this fine site and would like to play against some real competition rather than the chumps in the public leagues. I am more of a h2h guy, but I would love to test my mettle against others in a competitive roto league.

    @Lone Star: Email one of organizers in the above post with openings.

    Figgy,

    I’ve sent an e-mail to you about joining the league you’re heading up.

    I go and have a busy week at school and next thing you know there are 160+ comments about RCLs. Crazy! (In a good way…)

  154. Dave says:
    (link)

    Grey,

    Quick question about the leagues: with your hatred (too strong a word?) of Karabell with posts like this-“You need a Bachelors in Stupidity to fully understand this, but luckily I have my Masters in Throwing Out the Karabage” why are you (we?) using ESPN for the leagues instead of yahoo?

  155. ZK says:
    (link)

    Two words: Yahoo blows. I mean, Free LiveScoring.

  156. ZK says:
    (link)

    Two more words: Brandon Funston. These guys should have constant air quotes around “expert.”

  157. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @pharmdriz: Cool, Figgy should get back to you. If not, let me know.

    @Dave: We’re just using their league services, turn a blind eye to their advice.

    @ZK: Yup and yeah.

  158. Lone Star says:
    (link)

    Grey, I have sent emails to both Figgy and Anthony, but received no reply. If they are full and you need another organizer, I would be more than happy to do some organizing.

  159. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Lone Star: Thanks for volunteering, I think we probably will need a new organizer shortly, but not sure if we do yet. Give Figgy and Anthony to the end of the day to see what’s up.

    Hey guys….my league just filled up…I can pass on the people who e-mailed me but didn’t get in if you’d like

    Grey says:

    @Get Figgy With It: Cool. Let’s pass them on to Lone Star, unless he was one of the people who got in.

    @Lone Star: Did you get in? Also, need your email to put into the post.

  162. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Lone Star: All I ask is that you keep me up to date in these comments as how many spots you have. Oh, and once you have a league in place if you could make a presence for that league in the Forums like some others have done. That would be appreciated. Here’s where you can see how others have set it up in the forums:

    Hey Guys,

    There is still room in my league. I have to get back to a number of you that have emailed me. I will answer in the emails in the order in which I recieve them. My league is the RCL Gorditas Supreme Division. ( my eyes are on the prize!)

  164. Sage says:
    (link)

    Ahem, so, uh, Grey, uh, I’d still like to be a league organizer. I have several Razzball readers I compete with regularly who will join my group.

    Thanks again.

  165. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Sage: Oh, man. Did I skip you in line to be the next organizer? Shoot. Sorry about that.

    Do you hate the idea of joining Lone Star’s league? If you really want to be an organizer, I’ll add you to this post but if the two leagues don’t fill up, I may have to fold them together.

  166. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Anthony G: Do you have 5 spots still open? Are you still having a money pot?

  167. Sage says:
    (link)

    Grey: You. Dirty. Son. Of. A…oh wait, I mean, thanks!

    Being an organizer would be great. I have a solid, strong core of 8 to 10 owners (almost all Razzball regs) and I’d like to put us up against Razzball’s best. This group wants to put up $25 each on the side, so my task would be to find a couple of new owners here who are eager to send five fins to a complete stranger.

    Shouldn’t be hard, right?

  168. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Sage: You do what you do with the money, but I think that was the problem with trying to fill the A-Gonz league.

    As I said above:

    All I ask is that you keep me up to date in these comments as how many spots you have. Oh, and once you have a league in place if you could make a presence for that league in the Forums like some others have done. That would be appreciated. Here’s where you can see how others have set it up in the forums:

    EDIT: Typo. Word.

  170. Sage says:

    Eight committed. I think two more will commit soon, but until they do – eight. I’ll get things officially set up in the next day or so – and await inquiries meantime.

  171. Hi,

    I am looking for a league as well. First time player, long time fan. I run The Baseball Cube and am looking to angle TBC more towards fantasy players and so I am looking to gain some experience.

    Can someone email me if they have space in their league?

    Thanks

  172. BigFatHippo says:

    @Gary Cube: Plenty of room in Lone Star’s league, e-mail him at the address posted at the bottom of Grey’s, um, post, or article, or story, or whatever the kids are calling it these days.

  173. Anthony G says:

    I got 4 spots open. And yes still doing a buy in with a payout to the top4. All of the members in my league have agreed to it. Email me if you are interested.

    @Lou: You should be fine doing that. Good to have you in, Lou! Rudy and I still haven’t been able to connect to discuss that other thing.

    @Pops: Thanks!

  219. Ok, I believe the Standings (http://razzball.com/razzball-commenter-league-master-standings/) are updated. Links to the Forum and League Pages are up for 7 of the leagues. I don’t have the details yet for one of the leagues (Sage’s?). We should have 96 total slots (12 teams * 8 leagues) and I think about 8 are open right now.

    To make an even 100, Grey, myself, Diamond (http://razzball.com/category/contributors/diamond/), and Larry King (http://razzball.com/category/contributors/larry-king/) will do a 4-team league. I’m hoping I draft last and can get Pujols and Reyes with my first two picks! (i’m just kidding here…)

  220. Lone Star says:

    I just sent out my last invite so at this point the RCL Alex PEDriguez Division is full. I will update the master standings once the final owner has joined.

    Turnip you ignored my email response asking if you were ok with the buy-in. A forum posting is not the same as an email response to a question asked drectly to you by the league manager. You should have used your power of turnip to respond.

    By my count, that makes 8 leagues plus 3 potential extras. You may have to start your own provider and put yahoo out of business, get Turnip on that.

    Me and the original RCLers want stock options, or Pina Coladas…….

    @Christopher: Cool, you’re on it. If you can wrangle up some more guys, it’ll make it easier to put up the 9th league.

    @BigFatHippo: Yeah, looks like we need about 8 or 9 more guys. If that happens, we’ll set up another one.

    I’m interested in joining a league. Please let me know. I enjoy knitting, tea, long walks on the beach and fantasy baseball.

    Grey, looks like we need maybe one more for anothe league; is that right?

    @Basenji Warrior: if only you were into crocheting instead of knitting (sigh)….

    @Christopher: Looks like we have about 9. If you want to start contacting these people, be my guest. Then you’ll be the organizer, which means you’ll need to set up the league in ESPN, set up the draft and keep the league abreast (hehe, I said abreast) of any news in the forums as others have done.

    The emails for the guys on the waiting list are:

    @emporers monkey: You’re in – invite is sent, as subtle_betrayal had to back out.
    @madx34: Madx, draft time is negotiable. I just provided a starting place!!! DON’T LEAVE!

    @Christopher: Christopher; I need for you to resend me the invitation. The original takes me to a 10 team league called Lindenwood and I did not get a new invite.

    I did accept the invitation for the original league but I see that you have had to straighten some things out today.

    I was able to plug in the league ID number in the old url but it just tells me “Invite does not exist in LeagueMember” yet I can see “Team BKK”. It has be a little frustrating.

    @Christopher: Never mind. I just got the new invite. SLLOOOOWWW

    Just signed up. Thanks for the invite!!

    Paul Nebenfuhr says:

    Christopher – the same thing happened to me as BKK. I got an invite to the league, joined it, then some hours later received another invite to the Latin 9. Went back to the initial league, but I couldn’t get in it any more. I was able to join Latin 9, but the whole thing was a bit peculiar. There is the possibility that others who have not joined as yet have experienced the same wierdness.

  256. Christopher says:
    (link)

    @Paul Nebenfuhr: I’ll resend te invite to the 6 who’ve not yet joined. I do apologize for the confusion, but we’re on track now…that’s the last time I try to set up a fantasy league after drinking a bottle of cough medicine…

  257. madx34 says:

    Looking through the leagues to see if they all are on the same page… there are some non-conformist settings in some leagues…don’t know if you can still change but this is what I see:

    1) Honey Nut Ichiros – has a 180 Games started max… most other leagues have 198.

    2) Neologasm – has 200 Starts max, other have 198

    3) Gorditas – has weekly lineup and roster changes, all other leagues are on daily

    9 pichers, 20 game eligibility? what does that mean?

  287. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @AL KOHOLIC: Two separate thoughts. 9 pitchers starting, 20 games for a hitter to be eligible somewhere.
