Opening day is upon us! Join me in a rotisserie baseball league!

I've chosen a 10-category rotisserie league on Yahoo!, because I'm familiar with that interface and that format. When we have 12 teams (or as many as possible), there will be an auto-draft. I hope that people are interested in being involved without having to devote a ton of time to it. I was reluctant to join these leagues at first, but it really takes no more time than checking the box scores, if that's all the time you want to put into it.

To join, follow this link: Minnesota Geocaching Assoc.

Here are the league ID and password:
League ID#: 306919
Password: safarisendoff

Hope to see you there!

It's been a few years since I was in a Fantasy baseball league. Time to try again. Sounds like fun.

And, it's free.

For me, I don't spend a lot of time watching baseball games, but I do like to keep up with the standings and the stats, and having "my players" enhances my enjoyment of that. So you can set it up to try to draft all the Twins if you like -- whatever suits your interest in baseball to begin with.

Once you set your lineup, it'll pretty much run itself. The main part of maintenance is making sure that players who are hurt in real life are not in your lineup earning you nothing.

Welcome BRL to the league! Who else?

Yes, you need a Yahoo! account, but that's also free. The link I gave in the OP should enter the league ID and password for you.

Riiiiiight. Smile When the league is filled with 12 managers, speedy, I'll set it to hold the draft. If there are players you especially want to draft or avoid, you can set that up.

OK, 6 in, 6 slots left. Who else?

"Team Lucid"?! Let the trash-talk begin!

There is one slot left!

Assuming we can fill that last slot soon, we'll have the draft this evening. If there is sufficient interest, I could do a live draft around 10 p.m. Otherwise, I'll set it up for an auto-draft before I go to bed. You can have the computer pick your players for you in either case -- go to "My Team" and "Edit Pre-draft player rankings" if you want to change the default draft order.

It's only a matter time before I will become the one and only Two Title Holder. Let the games begin!
