There's an open spot in the NL-only league. I now can't make the draft, and don't really have time to set up a draft order before then.

3 teams more in the NL-only league, actually.

I want 12+ teams so we'll have to really dig.

Twelve teams is the maximum. After that it becomes a battle just to find guys who even play.

But, I want Adam Everett and Brad Ausmus on my team! They're gonna lead the Astros to a 156 game victory of the NL Central!

Bitch, it's Ausmus, Biggio and Luke Scott. Fuck-a Adam Everett and his non-producing play.

NL Only draft is tonight. 6pm PST.

I hate how all the good closers below 40 are in the AL. Grar.

I know that most people are probably double-booked, or perhaps even triple-booked, between the various TSM leagues that are running right now, but I'm considering putting together another fantasy league with a few of the ideas that Al and I bandied about for the NMB Top Dollar League a couple of years back. Some things would change, but the hybrid auction/draft would still be the primary idea. Would anybody be interested in joining another league?

Sure, sounds different.

Plus my last draft of the year can't be that awful NL only draft. Fucking computer restarting.

Hey, at least you made it to the draft. The autodraft punishment for my no-show was something fierce. (Shawn Green?)

If enough interest does come around, I'll post a full league constitution, but here's an informal writeup of the league concept, for those who may be considering it:

FORMAT:
12 Team 5x5 Mixed Roto ESPN Fantasy League, with the following twists on the typical categories:
  • Total Bases replaces HR
  • Net Steals (SB-CS) replaces SB
  • Quality Starts replaces Wins
  • OBP replaces Batting Average
Each team is allowed 15 Waiver/FA moves, but can make an unlimited amount of trades.

ROSTERS:
Each team will have a roster of 25 players with three DL spots (28 slots in total). One of the typical outfielder slots will be changed to a Center Fielder, just to induce a little more position scarcity:
  • 9 Offense (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CF, OF, OF, UT)
  • 8 Pitching (SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P)
  • 8 Bench
Player distribution will proceed in two phases:
  • Auction Phase (Sunday, March 25th via AIM Chat): Each team has a $150 budget to bid for 8 players. Selection order (i.e. the order in which owners nominate players for auction) will be determined randomly at the time of the auction.
  • Draft Phase (Saturday, March 31st, ESPN Live Draft) - Owners fill out the remaining 17 slots on their roster through a serpentine draft. Draft order is determined by the average dollar value of each team's top three salaries from the auction phase (i.e. the owner with the least expensive top three gets to pick first in the draft phase.)
AWARDS:
The ESPN Fantasy Leagues allow for the creation of customized trophies, so I went ahead and created a couple of different awards outside of the standard league championship. Owners can earn the following awards at the end of the season:
  • The Top Dollar Triforce of Power: Awarded to the league championship.
  • The Golden Pierzynski Award: Awarded to the "winner" of the best trade of the season, as voted by the league.
  • The Branch Rickey Memorial Draft-Day Bandit Award: Awarded to the best draft of the season, as voted by the league.
  • The Meatloaf: Awarded to the last place finisher. Loser.

I went ahead and opened the league at ESPN, so follow the link below if you want to join up or look around (password is "topdollar"):

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=90947

I've never used the ESPN service before now, so if the site doesn't let you in or gives you some other form of crankiness, just let me know and I'll check it out after work.

Of course, we're still looking for some more owners, if we want to move forward with this. Any other interested fantasy players out there?

It's a free league - this is the first year that ESPN has offered their service for free, so I thought it might be worth a spin, especially since they can cover the scoring categories for the league (unlike Yahoo!, for example).

And J.T., I added you to the list above. Still looking to get some more people on board, though, so that we can figure out a good time on Sunday for everybody to attend the auction phase.

I'd like to join , but it'll depend on the time that we conduct the auction on Sunday.

Will noon or 1:00p.m. EST be too early for people here? If it is, I'll give up the spot.

My schedule's too hectic to allow me to do another fantasy team, unfortunately. It'll be good to see how this league does to iron out any kinks in the system for the future though.

I wouldn't have a problem with 1pm EST, but I'm not sure how everybody else feels about it. At this rate, unless we bring in some more competitors, we may have to put this off until about midseason, when people start to get an itch for second-half leagues.

All right, thanks to everybody who joined in, but it looks like we're not going to have enough participants to move forward with the league right now. I'll bring it back around during the All-Star Break and see what kind of interest people would have for a second-half league.
