A little about us...our little group is called Smack Talkers. We've been doing football, hockey and baseball for 8 years now. We started out a regular podunk league with a twist, we charged a small amount so the winner of the league got a jersey of a star player from their team. The idea was that over time, you could build up a collection of jerseys of all types of players from the different leagues, each one commemorating a fantasy league victory.
Fast forward 8 years...we now have keepers, non-random drafts (draft based on previous years rankings, like the MLB) and $600 in prizes for the top 5 teams. I'm looking for a manager to take over an existing baseball team. Here is the roster of the team you'd inherit:
Ken Griffey Jr.
From that team, you would have to select 3 players as Keepers. Our live draft (March 29th @ 4:30MST) will essentially start at round 4 because the first 3 rounds are pre-determined due to keepers. The draft position for your team is pre-determined as well (based on last years standings), you will be drafting 4th overall.
There is a $50 fee* for each manager and %100 of the fees go into the prize pool and is distributed at the end of the season to the winners. There is nothing that goes to me (the commish) or anyone else. All prize pool money is rewarded to those that finish in the money. Speaking of which, here is how the prizes are broken down:
1st - $150 + jersey of one of the star players on your fantasy team
2nd - $115
3rd - $90
4th - $70
5th - $50 or #1 overall next year
6th - whatever option was not selected by 5th place team
This league is for fun but it's competitive as well. It's best if you are an experienced fantasy player. If you are interested, please PM me.
If you have any questions, please post in this thread.
*You will not be required to pay the $50 upfront, you can join the league first. Once you've joined, it will be obvious that this isn't some sort of scam. Yahoo will show an extensive league history as well as extensive history on me (the commish). In addition you can see that I'm an active member here at HFBoards and have been for quite some time. Lastly...don't be paranoid, if someone was going to scam you out of $50 this would be about the dumbest way possible to do it!!
