The Good Phight Fantasy Baseball

It's about time we "sponsored" a league.  We are mostly calc-nerds here, so, it should be fun and chellenging.  Most teams die off towards the middle, but hopefully it won't since I'll post weekly updates here. Below the fold are the details.

This is a Yahoo Free League:

Just some notes.  

Draft date is the last Sunday night at 8:15.  Should be doable for most people.

Put it at 20 teams, we will likely do less, but we'll see how many people want in.  

It will be Head-to-Head to hopefully keep activity up.

We have one player for each fielding position (and DH) and 3 starters, 3 relievers and 2 mixed.

Stat categories were chosen based on performance and not result.  Thus, no categories that have anything to do with scoring runs.

For Hitters:
Total Bases
Extra Base Hits
Net Stolen Bases

For Pitchers:
Total Bases Against

These stats are all negotiable (here) but will be set in stone the day before the draft (obviously).  Should be fun and different.
