Let me know if you are interested in joining.

Once we get a little interest we will decide on what site we want to use, buy in (this will be a cheaper league), rules, draft date, etc.

1. HAMMER check
2. Dustin check
3. Cook check
4. Sam uncheck
5. MyrixXXX uncheck
6. Felty uncheck
7. Rune_Walsh check
8. Slim check
9. Ryan uncheck
10. Broccoli check

$25 buy in

WE ARE OFFICIALLY FOLDING INTO PRIMES LEAGUE. EVERYBODY WHO HAS PAID IS IN THE OTHER LEAGUE I BELIEVE.

@dustin @Rune_Walsh @Slim @broccoli

Do you guys want refunds or I can just send all of our money to Prime for that entry fee.

Damn didn't tag the winner. Is this like the official league or just a limpwristed attempt to usurp Prime? I'm down either way I just want to know which league to draft Miguel Cabrera in

I'm playing both sides, I want to beat the biggest amount of people possible. Can Prime join this league if he dons a disguise like Bobby V?

Not sure what I'm doing. Didn't get much interest when I posted about bringing back the main league. My only requirements for joining a league is that it be H2H each category. Other than that the rest of the details don't worry me. I'm in on this either way, so long as it's head to head

If we have any trouble filling it, I have another guy I work with that wants in. I already told him no, but he'd join if we need it. My personal preference would be to keep it at 10 people just due to roster quality, but I'll do whatever the league wants.

Yo just let Prime in if you don't have beef.. You know he will always be playing and at least pretty good. No disrespect @Felty but I think he just idled for weeks last time he was let in. Gotta let the Primester join, he won't be able to force trades or whatever you guys were arguing about last year..

edit: and we could be waiting literally weeks on 2 more people who still like baseball enough to pay money to play in 2018

No one said he couldn't join, he withdrew his interest.

Also Ryan said he'd play so there's 9. Only one more person which won't be a problem.

There's a PM feature if you wish to have no one else interject. Thought maybe you hadn't seen him say he's withdrawing his own name just a few posts ago.

I like people to see what I say about the league so nobody can say I said something in a PM that I never said...

Also on the internet, you're generally speaking to the person above you when you make a forum post after them

Was that last year or the year before? I'm sure there was a good reason I wasn't very active but I paid my dues and I'm ready to win this season.

I vote H2H points.

Just to be clear, H2H points is like football, correct? Where it's just total points? Like our basketball league is set up. And categories is like the baseball was last year where you have to win out of 10 different categories?

Then yes, definitely points. Cook votes points as well.

If we're voting on things, are we also voting on the draft, or is that already set? Auction vs snake. I'd vote snake but am okay with either.

Lol snake draft with points. Horrendous. Hope you guys enjoy the days when your boy has a double header, goes 5/5 with 2 bombs a double, two singles 6 rbi, a steal and 4 runs scored but in the night cap goes 0 for 6 with 4ks and you get zero points at all.

Also with the snake draft enjoy constructing a team consisting of having to pick whatever hobos are left available and not being able to actually construct your own team.

Thanks for not letting me in this wack ass league.
