10 Team ESPN H2H each category Auction League

Offensive Categories: Runs, AVG, RBI, HR, SB
Pitching Categories: Wins, Saves, ERA, Whip, K's

25 Man Roster: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 2B/SS, 1B/3B, OF, OF, OF, OF, OF, UTILITY.
PITCHER (x9). BENCH (x3). DL (x3)
4 teams make the playoffs $25 buy-in

Prize pool will be $250 we can figure out how to allocate prize money once everyone is paid up. In addition to prize money this year I'll be offering up a bonus prize to the league champ that I hope to continue in years forward in the form of a league champ hoody. Whoever wins this year will let me know what size hoody they wear and I'll have have it printed with the GameTZ logo, your user name, your team name as well as our league name. This year I'm going to go into my own pocket for this and next year I was thinking we could add $2 per team to the buy in to cover it.

Fine. We can the buy in be the $5 buy in begininers special for a season to rebuild. Hammer straight up doesn't have the discipline to run a league over a year or longer. Plus his wife two times him with giant huge Purple BBC behind giant back on the low.

$5 low stakes experimental season it is.

We tweet the standard rules. It's still more rigid than I'd like it to be. We have 3 DL spots, 3 bench spots, if you run it through the espn fantasy app it's really not that bad. We're doing a small buy in just to keep the league alive, would hate to lose you but that's about as hard a sell as I have in me.

@brownies8701 are you in?

I will play for $25 if we can get enough interest in that. Where's all the people from the yahoo league we did for years? That one didn't even run last year and the year before it went to hell.
Prime

@Slim of course id rather do a $20/25 buy in like we always have. But if my choices are go for that and not be able to fill the league or do a low stakes league-- id rather keep the league going with a low stakes buy in and get back to where we were next year.

For the $25 I think it would just be you me and Sam and maybe Mclintosh. Clear_Sights is out of fantasy baseball this year, I guess he got tired of autodrafting, and coming in last. Hammer defected to start the other league. I haven't seen @thenadz post anywhere in a while, haven't heard from @Dustin so I don't think he's in, haven't heard from @Rune_Walsh in a while either. And sharif and the jaw who expressed interest last year for joining this year also have been MIA. For our usual buy in right now I think we only have 4 Spots filled. So we'd have to fill 6 more spots in the next 3 weeks. I'd love for it to come together but I'm not sure I see it happening. I wanted to play in a league even if I wasn't gonna run my league this year and I don't like the idea of not playing one bit. I'm not sure how it's gonna play out but id rather play Low Stakes then not play at all.

Things are evolving and I'm not sure how it's gonna go. If we cant get the league full @$25 well still 100% do it for $5. But we've had $25 buy ins the passed 3 years and my fear is that for $5 people out of contention early will abandon their teams and the season will be lost.

Ok boys we've got 10 now. So we'll need to discuss a draft date. We've historically done it on a Sunday night which would work for me again, let me know what you guys think. I'm thinking two weeks from now? Around 7/8pm ish.

I'll get offers out to everyone shortly and reactivate the league from last season and get invitations out by the end of the week.

I sent out offers to everyone in the league. If you sent your payment to hammer already he'll forward it to me, but accept the trade offer. There should be a record on file. Hammer will let me know who paid him already when he sends to me and I'll check received in the trade offer as if you sent it to me directly.

Have an issue with my WiFi at the crib so something this week I'll find a hotspot and reactive everything on ESPN and get offical invitations sent out to everyone.

I won't do it because I'm not gonna start the season on a note like that but theoretically I could dismiss any one team and slip maddawg in. For instance a team that hasn't paid yet would be a lot easier ethically than a team already paid up. However I wouldn't feel good about doing that, particularly worse I think than I do about Maddawgs disclusion. He's an OG, been with us since the start. Him wanting to be in and not being in isn't kosher and doesn't sit well with me, but I'm afraid maybe hands are tied here and I can't do anything about it.

to be clear I don't expect you kick anyone out nor do I want that but if nobody pays is fair way to slip him in there but a deadline would need to be set.
