Time for Fantasy Baseball 2011... with a twist!

I've renewed the Metafilter league, but rather than do a standard league where success is rewarded, I'm going with a Hall of Shame format. This means that negative stats such as caught stealing, grounding in double plays, etc. are rewarded whlle home runs, strikeouts and the like are penalized.

We have a total of 12 spots, and had a pretty active owner pool last year. I only ask for one thing: Please only sign up if you will be an active owner. The last thing we want is someone who signs up and then never checks the team again.

Should be a good time. Please MeMail me for league info.

I'm already in a league at work, and there's no way I could handle running two teams. But I just wanted to leave my massively nerdy draft order here for you guys to run with.

Razzball, eh? That might be the incentive I need to come back!

Maybe this year I will win at stinking rather than stink at winning!

Bring me the legs of Bengie Molina!

Thank god. This may finally be my year.

(I petered out last year somewhere after midseason, but only because my team sucked so much and I couldn't seem to do anything about it. If suckage is rewarded, it'll be easier to stay motivated.)

So in theory, this means that we should draft crappy players that get lots of at bats?

If so, this is the year I ride Carlos Gomez to the crown!

For my first pick, I choose Kenny Powers.

I can imagine awesome trades in this league, like A-Rod for David Eckstein.
