Default 2012 Fantasy Baseball For Stakes And The Troops

I have created a Yahoo League the same as previous years, it'll be mostly default, but I'll be adjusting the scoring for high points and maximum fun.
There will be only ten players.
That will leave a lot of free agents on the bench. There will be no waiver priority or waiver time. You can pick up guys right up till game time. The more involved you are, the better your chances of winning.

Buy in will be five premiums ($50.00 minimum value, NC and/or CC) and a fiver (minimum) for the troops, due prior to the start of the season. There is no dollar value amount for the troop smokes. Usually, quantity is better. Know that they LOVE Acids and other flavored smokes. It's a good idea to buy (a few) nice house bundles to bust up for your weekly bets, and some premiums never hurt if you want to go that way.

Payout will be 30 smokes to first place, 20 for second place, and a bare minimum of 50 smokes to the troops. I hope we break the 300 mark for the troops this year, that'd be insane.
I can take care of receiving/sending smokes, I've done it lots of times before without a hitch and I have plenty of extra storage tubs.

I will personally put together a nice fiver for the winner of the playoff loser's bracket as an incentive to keep everyone involved to the end. If anyone wants to offer any other bonus prizes, that would kick ass. Maybe something such as "fiver for highest score for week" or something like that.
Or "beat me this week, and I'll send a fiver to the troops". We had tons of that going on this year in Fantasy Football For Stakes And The Troops and it made it super fun for everyone.

The key is generosity, banter, and fun. The more bets and banter, the more fun it'll be. The more smokes we can gather for the troops, the more fun it will be.
If you cannot stay available for the entire season, please, please don't sign up, or find a brother or sister to step into your spot.
I can't stress this enough. If you don't eat, breathe, and sleep baseball, or will somehow become unavailable before season's end, please do not sign up.
Disappearing will just hurt what we're trying to do for the troops. We sure won't crucify you because we understand things happen, we just can't afford the normal two guys who quit after two weeks. Please take this seriously and approach it with the pride and respect the troops deserve.
You do not need to be a Fantasy Baseball Genius to join, the guys will help you learn if necessary. The main thing is the desire to have fun and lose lots of bets so the troops win some sticks.

Live Draft will be announced asap. If you can't attend, your players will be picked for you by yahoo in the order of player ranking.

Only ten guys will be playing, I'll pm the league name and password to those who join.
1. shilala (scott)
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Please give a lot of thought to the "extra" bets. Not to belabor the point, but this league is gonna cost you some smokes if it's going to be successful, especially for the troops. So take that into consideration very seriously.
If you're a gamer, you could end up buying a number of bundles for the troops if you lose weekly bets. Or you could end up making us other knuckleheads buy lots of smokes for the troops. It's gonna take up some of your time, and a good amount of smack talking to keep guys on their toes. You'll also lose some smokes to your buds if you're playing right.
We'll use this thread as our banter thread once we get all signed up and get the league going.
Thank You for your consideration!!!

Default Re: 2012 Fantasy Baseball For Stakes And The Troops

I made most of the settings except the draft date.
We'll all work on that to see what works best. Mind ya, it has never worked out that everyone could be available for the draft. If you're the one guy who can't make it, we won't be picking on you.
Fortunately we can all set up our draft priority list and Yahoo will auto-pick.

I would join, but I am just not a huge fan of all the side betting. I just like to put in a 5'er or so in the beginning like we did last year in Hugh's league.

I have talked with Scott and will be offering a Yahoo league again this year. This will be Year Three for this league. I will be starting a thread in a few weeks. There is even an option to renew last year's league. We'll see......
