    I'll play, and if we beg, I suspect that Paulie and Wayner might jump in.

    Start begging. I might be interested. All depends on timing and everything.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    If it helps any, I always insist on doing the drafts on the weekend. That should accomodate most folks' schedules, I hope.

    Great idea, Jodaar! Count me in. I don't know much about this game called base-ball, but I will try to field a competitive team.

    Kidding. I've been in fantasy baseball leagues for years.

    This looks like a very interesting scoring system that I've not used before. Will it be AL, NL or combined league?

    I am already commited to a draft with folks from my office. As soon as I know the date and time I'll let you know so we won't conflict.

    It'll be combined leagues Wayner, all MLB players are in. The scoring system is based on Sandbox's. You basically score points for almost anything a player does. So all players get to contribute, not just the HR hitters or base stealers. You pretty much want hitters with high OPS & low strikeout rate. Pitchers earn most of their points with W's & IP's, though a good K/BB ratio will help. Generally, this is a pretty accurate system as far as ranking who the best players are. Bill James would be proud.

    I'll post some more info here later when I actually get a league set up. Can't wait for Spring Training to start.

    Thanks, Bill!

    That's not gonna work on me. Girls are some of the fiercest fantasy players I've ever encountered. A nice young lady was kicking my butt in my football league until her Priest Holmes got hurt. I was lucky enough to sneak past her in the final week for an upset championship win. Try to take it easy on us guys, ok Eden.
