Major League Baseball Spring training starts this week, and I was wondering if there might be some interest in starting a fantasy baseball dynasty league. I've participated in cgk's redraft league for a few years, and it's been a lot of fun, but I thought the addition of a dynasty element might appeal to some of the more seasoned spreadsheet athletes out there. Details below. [more inside]
Is there a possibility that we could have some open threads on FanFare for the upcoming World Series? There are several teams in the mix to this point whose participation could be historic, so interest will quite possibly be higher than ever. I think we did the Olympics and the World Cup, IIRC, so this wouldn't be unprecedented. Is that a thing we could do?
Now is your chance to join the 11th season of MetaFilter fantasy baseball. [more inside]

MeFi Fantasy Baseball '07 needs YOU!
MeFi Fantasy Baseball 2007!!!: It's back! We had a great time last year with 14 teams, and I'd like to run the same deal again- 5X5 Roto, daily lineups. A few changes I'd like to incorporate: - Fewer pitching slots. - $5 fee, to cover Yahoo Fantasy Plus (sorry folks, the free service is just lame) and 2 prizes: League Winner, and Most Improved (in points as of the All-Star break) If you're interested, please drop me a line via my profile. I'd like to cut it off at 15 teams, with preference given to teams who played last year. I'm also open to (reasonable) rule change requests once we've gotten all the managers.
MeFi Fantasy BB Update: We're looking for 3 owners to take over for certain folks who have abandoned their teams after less than a month. They're all "fixer-upper" teams, but two are currently in 6th & 7th (out of 12) place.
MeFi Fantasy Baseball! Anyone up for some last-minute shenanigans? I could throw together a free Yahoo 5x5 Roto league if there's enough interest. Draft would probably be Sunday.
We complain a lot about bad thread, but THIS is EGREGIOUS and UNFORGIVABLE and MORALLY REPREHENSIBLE.
