Including members of the other BF Baseball leagues!

£15 to play, go here to check it out http://games.espn.go.com/frontpage/baseball

And here for a brief intro to fantasy baseball http://www.itsmysportsfantasy.com/fantasy-baseball-beginners-guide.html

It will be a 5x5 Roto league with a live draft and, depending upon the numbers, we may have more than one league.

Sign below and once we get the numbers, we'll sort out the leagues.

Do NOT send any money.

O is it going to be difficult if I ask you to take it out of the NFL money you are holding for me as I have nothing in my paypal and may take a while to send it to you?
Report orioles March 3, 2010 10:44 PM GMT
I'm holding £40 for you, Buckio. Do you want to be in the Veteran league AND the new players league, or just the latter?

If it's both, you can pay the balance when you sort out your Paypal, no problem.

Let me know. Cheers.

ok just a few questions before i commit myself and pay the £15 and also put espn package back on sky (its got cancelled the minute NCAAF finished)

All very well paying by paypal, but when you receive the money your paying commision then the person who wins the league is paying commision on the commisioned money, from what i remember its 4% so thats some loss we're all taking.

Also when is the date of the live draft, any night next week im fine with however i cant do the week after as i'm working nights
Report orioles March 4, 2010 1:01 AM GMT
I fund the prizes via the bank account where the subscriptions are kept; so there are no fees to pay for winners receiving their prizes.

I pay the Paypal fees of people sending subscriptions paid by debit/credit card ... so the loss is all mine.

Yes folks, I pay to run these bloody leagues, and always have done, MLB and NFL!

If this is difficult for anyone, let me know on this thread and we'll try to get a time when everyone can draft.

I'll randomise the draft order at the weekend.

Try out a couple of mock drafts if you've never drafted, or never MLB drafted on ESPN before - it'll pay dividends!
Report orioles March 9, 2010 7:10 PM GMT
I know what you mean, Fen, and I had thought of limiting the player pool as you suggest, but 12 is a standard size, even for a mixed league, so we'll keep it deep. The prizes will be deep too.

A bit of fun.
