The limit is for all players--no way to make it pitcher-specific, which would eliminate the issue we saw last year.

I'd favor a higher per-week limit with an overall season cap vs. just a lower per-week limit, personally. I like the freedom (especially early in the season) to dump underperforming guys, or find the hot hand at a given position and go with that guy for a week or two. I don't look at free agency/waivers as something to be used primarily to replace injured guys.

That stance has a lot to do with my abilities/limits as a fantasy player--I'll freely admit that I'm not the world's best drafter, but I tend to do pretty well at turning over my team as needed. I don't want to see that ability limited too severely.

I agree we have to limit any abuse--perceived or otherwise--which is why I want the limit. I've never seen anyone in one of our BTF leagues pull any funny business as far as using waivers to block others from transactions, so I guess I'd like to just hope that doesn't start happening. And, as far as the time zone point, you're just going to have to deal with my East Coast bias (and location).

I agree but wonder if you can seperate pitchers and position players? Can it be done?

When do we start talking about Draft Day?

Commish has final or tie-breaking decisions.

Nope, you can't. That would be a nice feature for Yahoo to add, though.

Probably doesn't make sense until we have enough teams to actually have a league. I've tentatively set the draft for a Sunday evening in March, if I remember right, but we can obviously change that.

How about before the Draft and season starts an agreement with the teams plus Commish OK we set number of pitchers AND position players set?

Something like in a week 5-6 players with max of 3 pitchers....just a BTF rule? As long as it's set in stone before the Draft I can live with that. Maybe a revised rule after rosters expand? Playoffs? Whatever?

Eh?

Oh, that would be 8:30 EDST?

You have chosen to participate in one of our live online drafts, which is set for Sun Mar 10 8:30pm EDT

On draft day, please arrive 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled time.
The draft will start promptly and may conclude rapidly if only a few managers are logged in.

We also suggest that you custom rank players in case you can't make it to the draft. You can do this at any time by simply going to the Fantasy Baseball home page and clicking on your team name.

Thanks for joining. Good luck.


AND THAT IS ONLY 23 DAYS FROM TODAY, LET"S GET IT FILLED UP!
