View Full Version : A dynasty league

Now that football is over...at least at the fantasy level, it is almost time to start thinking baseball. It has been brought to me again to run a dynasty baseball league... The last time we discussed this, it was suggested that the base teams be the 10-12 worst teams from the previous season. Each person gets to pick one team, that team to start would be whoever is on that teams roster plus that team's prospects. There would be big rosters, but active starting rosters would be managable. Instead of starting with the worst 10-12, this time it was suggested to just let it be open to the whole MLB. Once all teams are entered, waivers would take place. Waivers order would be worst to best, as based on the pro-teams finish. All available players will be open to the add/drop. Example: FlyGuy decides to join and he takes the Royals. He decides he needs pitching help. No one took the Phillies. Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, etc. are all available to add. Of couse he would only be able to snag one unless no one else put a claim in. Waivers would be on a weekly basis and roster adjustments would be on a weekly basis instead of daily.

So...if anyone is interested, just post here. I'll take care of running the league. One benefit to running the league is that I get first pick of teams in which I would (naturally) take the Atlanta Braves. Two guys who brought the idea to me that are not HI guys are in. One claims the Chicago Cubs the other claims the Boston Red Sox.

1. KK - Atlanta -- signed in
2. Grant Shubby- Boston
3. Tony - Chicago (NL)
4. BG - Milwaukee
5. Keyboard - Philadelphia
6. Doof˛ - San Francisco
7. moans - Colorado
8. two24four - New York (AL)
9. corky - Tampa Bay
10. redneck hockey fan - Cincinnati
11. rhynoc - Texas
12. mrtybrodur30 - Oakland

If not that's cool...

I will have our HI league up and running soon.

Will there be a salary cap? Maybe instead of prospects?

I'm in and will take the Brewers. Gonna use standard stats? Also i'd treat the initial waivers like a slow draft and do it through a message board, doing it through Yahoo would be a mess.

There was no discussion of a salary cap, but that is something we can discuss.

Yeah I'd roll with the initial set of waivers to be done through a message board.

Using Yahoo, I take it?

Team rankings based on 2010 regular season record?

If so, I'll take SF. Prefer no salary cap.

Everyone should have received a PM with the league info. Do we want to attempt getting everyone on the same page and have a live draft or do we want to do the draft through the yahoo groups pages. I'll PM everyone the Groups pages info in a moment also. Just wanted to point out that we are mid-February, MLB season kicks off March 30th so we would need to start the draft soon if we do it offline.

You got some funky settings going on right now. Max of 2 moves all season, Grand slams, putouts, pickoffs, 7 day waivers.

Also not sure how an online draft would work here since we're starting with full majors and minors rosters. I'd say you gotta do it offline with having it in draft format but with the guy saying who he wants to add and who he drops.

I'm good to go whenever we can. The sooner the better as I'd like to still retain Michael Young before he gets traded. Haha.

The max moves will be changed. It is to prevent an overabundance of add/drops - waivers/FAs, etc. It should be weekly. The slams and pick offs I added for flavor. Put outs, errors I felt we should value defense.

As for the draft...once everyone is logged into the league, I'll get the teams loaded. I know what I am gonna do.

I'm actually concerned about the commitment of some of these people who wanted to join the league. If it's taken this long to join, is this an indication of their commitment level !?

Can we cut some of the hitting stats to make the scoring more even with pitching. Theres a few like slams and errors, etc that can be cut pretty easily imo, but just wondering what everyone else thinks.

I think you should change you team name to whoever your dynasty team is, instead of mrtybrodur30.

My bad. Didn't realize there was a min post count to join a fantasy sports league. If there is a thread regarding this matter please direct me, as I would like to know where I stand on HI totem pole among my interweb friends before being accepted as one of your own...

It's not a minimum post count, it's a minimum intelligence level.

He reminds me of a guy we had in a hockey pool on HI, by the second week of the draft the league kicked him out for being a complete tool.

I don't think I've done a thing but defend myself. But if you feel that I am to blame for calling myself an idiot and suggesting myself to leave this web forum then i guess I dont have a leg to stand on.
My bad for asking for myself to be harassed. I mean, I guess it's all good to have atleast one user per web fourm to make the new users feel welcome...

If having the last word in a disagreement is important to you guys, then have it... then grow up and move on.... then realize I was making a simple suggestion to better enhance the dynasty feel of the league.
And if it's that important for you guys to not allow a new user to join a league because of his post count then I will leave the league to help alleviate the wad of panties you both have jammed up your ass.

MrtyBrodur can you please change your name to your team name. You have time obviously, but if that could be done that would be awesome...

Waiting on DoofDoof and Keyboard as well as Grant and Tony (non-HIers) to get into the league. I will get on Boston and ChiCubs to get in if you guys can get in. Thanks.

Click the link that BG provided a couple of posts up. There is no draft, the teams are loaded. What we are waiting for is the remaining two teams to sign into the groups pages so we can start the waivers.
