Fantasy Baseball, anyone?

In years past, the various MeFi fantasy baseball leagues have filled up fast. In the interest of keeping this to one post and hopefully having room for everyone this year, mkultra, drezdn, and I have collaborated to set up a few different fantasy leagues for the enjoyment of MeFi.
The league settings are as follows (choose wisely):

mkultra will be hosting a 5x5 Roto league (this is the main MeFi league from previous years) of 14 teams. mkultra has graciously offered 2 $25 Amazon gift certificates as prizes in this league--one for the winner, and one for the most improved team after the all-star break.
drezdn will be hosting the same custom 20-team H2H league that was the MeFi/MeCha league last year.
I will be hosting an NL-only 5x5 Roto league of 12 teams. I will also offer 2 $25 Amazon gift certificates as prizes.
mkultra has also offered to host an AL-only 5x5 Roto league if there is enough interest.

If you would like to play, MeMail the host of the league you would like to join. Please join only one league at first; we'll make an announcement if there are more spots available after the initial rush.

Jesus Christ on a pogo-stick, this makes ten MeTa threads today! TEN!

You couldn't have brought this up tomorrow, just to keep us down to single digits on the 6th?

Could someone direct an utter n00b to any good resources? I was thinking about playing FB at Yahoo! this spring.

Look at AskMe; there have been several good questions about how to prepare for fantasy baseball (what are the good books, blogs, etc)

here's one; there are more by clicking the "baseball" tag on that one.

Whee, baseball!

FYI, there are only 7 spots in my mixed league left, after a bunch of returning folks claimed spots.

Happy to have new players, but the only thing I ask is that you commit to playing the entire season- you don't need to be minding the FA wire every day, but people who stop updating their lineups a couple months in and run with benched/DL players ruin the fun for everyone.
