Fantasy baseball sign up thread & rules of fantasy baseball

I am reposting the sign up thread here. For those who didn't get a chance to see it earlier, thi.s is where you can sign up for the GT Fantasy Baseball league "Princess FluffyBunt". It is on Yahoo! Fantasy but it is a closed league. I set it up on invite only to avoid the chance of trolls or ner-do-wells coming in and starting shit. If you don't want to leave an email address there, you can contact me @ joel_robinson@yahoo.com and i can send an invite. Now i thoughts i would do a quick rundown of the basic rules for this game for those who have never done fantasy baseball or any kind of fantasy sports.

Each person is a manager of a team of players that will be drafted before the season begins. Right now the draft is set for 3/21 @ 1 PM. The time can be adjusted if there is need to and there are apps for Android and Iphone that you can use to log in and check your team, adjust lineups, and other things. If you can't make the draft, the computer will draft the base available player for the spot you have open but there is no guarantee you will get the player you want. Your team will consist of two starting pitchers, 2 relief pitchers, 4 pitchers who can be in either spot, catch 1b, 2b,3b, SS, two utility batters who are basically jack of all trade guys, like a 4th outfielder. There are three outfield spots which can be assigned as you see fit. There is also a DL spot and 5 bench spots so you can swap players out as you need to.


We'll be using the Rotsierri scoring format...

Rotisserie: Rotisserie, or "Roto," is the most common way to play fantasy baseball. In this scoring type teams are ranked from first to last in each statistical category. Points are then awarded according to the order in each category, then totaled to determine an overall score and league rank

The catagories we will use for determining points are...

Batters Stat Categories:Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG)

Pitchers Stat Categories:Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)


I'm gonna wrap this up because it's starting to get kind of long and i think i've covered most of the important things.
