MetaFilter Fantasy Baseball - 2020! March 6, 2020 7:40 PM   Subscribe

It's that time again! Did you know that Opening Day is only 20 days away? That means it's time to start your calculatin' and make the best imaginary baseball team that Yahoo and your illustrious competitors will let you build! It's FANTASY BASEBALL TIME!!

We play on Yahoo. We will have up to 20 teams in a 5x6 rotisserie league (we have holds). The live online draft...will happen (not scheduled yet). The link to join the league is in my profile (or you can MeMail me, or post here). I am not the commissioner.

Please do only sign up if you intend to play the season out. Don't bail on us.

(I also run a 10-team non-MetaFilter-affiliated auction league on ESPN, with folks from ye olde USENET. You can also contact me if you're interested in that; I have 2 slots open and we draft on the 22nd.)

I guess we could add FanFic as a category.

This league welcomes newcomers as well as experienced managers. Play!

I joined, I know next to nothing about baseball, this should be interesting. Also, excuse my ignorance if I ask questions or make dumb decisions/choices.

Excellent! I joined too and haven't played fantasy for many years, so it will be a learning year for me. Mostly I've been meaning to get deep into baseball data-wankery, and I hope this will be my motivation to do it. I'll be making dumb decisions as well.

BTW, if you vaguely remember guys named Vladimir Guerrero, Dante Bichette, or Craig Biggio: their kids all play for the Blue Jays this year.

Rumor has it that KBO may be able to restart training shortly . . . anyone here follow the league?
