We’re currently at sixty completely full leagues. I now have a waiting list for future leagues. Contact me if you are interested in getting on the list, which has already proven very helpful after unexpected dropouts. Three leagues lost owners yesterday, but all were refilled in short order. And, if we collect enough names, a new free RCL will be set up. Feel free to include your preferred draft times. I can’t guarantee you will be accommodated, but we will do our best. There is also a league with a $25 buy-in that has 9 openings. Check out the Signup sheet if you need the thrill of money on the line, and send the league organizer, Dave, a note.
League managers, you can also contact me if you need a replacement owner, or just put a message in the comment section.
Nine leagues held their draft on Sunday, running the total number of completed drafts to 19. A busy week coming up, with both the Experts League and the Razzball Writers’ drafts scheduled, along with leagues organized by Tom Jacks, Sky, and Smokey.
5 trades have already been completed, as teams look to correct their draft mistakes. Check out the Fantasy Baseball forums all season long to see what kind of deals are being made. You can find the RCL under “Everything Else.”
As you try to put together a winning draft strategy, here’s a tidbit from the 2012 drafts: Of the 20 players selected in the first round in all Razzball Commenter Leagues, only Ryan Braun, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, and Robinson Cano finished in the top 12 at the end of the year according to the Razzball Player Rater.
***** Fantasy Razzball Update: We now have 6 full leagues as the Hire Jim Essian site joined in. If anyone else wants in on the fun, send me a note and we’ll see if there is enough interest for a 7th league. These are the leagues where you hope for hitters who get lots of at bats but no hits, and pitchers who give up tons of runs. *****
