MeFi Fantasy Baseball 2014 February 16, 2014 12:52 AM   Subscribe

Spring training for the Metafilter Fantasy Baseball league's ninth season has begun. Instructions for interested GMs follow.

Players from last season should have received an email invite. If you are interested in starting a team this link should do the trick. We have a great set of active managers and welcome newcomers.

If you have any questions send a memail.

Ooh! I am looking on the website but can't see if it is possible to pre-pick for the live draft. I know it isn't ideal, but I would like to field a team except for the fact that I live on the other side of the earth and wouldn't be able to make the draft.

Answered my own question. Are you guys ok with me joining if I will be absentee on draft day? I wouldn't want to ruffle any feathers.

I wonder if this is the year my Windows 7 computer is finally able to connect to Yahoo's draft servers. (I have a backup plan.)

Also, my fantasy team name predates my MeFi name, not the other way around.

Awesome. Just joined as "Home Plate of Beans". Hoping to rebound from my disappointing performance in fantasy football this year.

Since we have managers located all over the place with all kinds of work schedules, the date is tentative until we can take a poll. Generally about half of the people are live and half submit their list for autopick.

Is there a way I can follow along and see how everybody does without playing myself?

(I had to give up fantasy baseball myself after one miserable summer spent frantically penciling in and then erasing JD Drew's name from my lineup. I can spend hours a day on that stuff and it makes me crazy. But I'd still like to keep up.)]

I can't remember, Roto or straight points? Either way I'm probably in again. Especially since I'm not working in F&B anymore!

I'm back in this year, decided to change the name from The Guinness Innings to SABR rattlers!

In as the Sunnydale Razorbacks. I've never played fantasy baseball so hopefully it isn't a debacle.

I'm in! Unemployment and fantasy baseball seem like a pretty excellent combo.

I just joined up as I AM FOOL. Name subject to change.

I'm in as the Sammi Superstars, but may change later if inspiration strikes me.
