FanGraphs: The Game: Bucs Dugout Edition

I know a decent number of you go to FanGraphs, and I'm sure some heard seen the new game they unveiled yesterday. It's kind of convoluted the way they made it, but I think it could out to be pretty good fun.

Basically, you can create a player for up to 8 positions and put them on a team, and all palyers on each team compete for a place of the depth chart, and to be to #1 player at the end of the year. To do that, you pick a major league player each day with a cap of 162 games (for the most part) and $1000 (for the most part). For each day, whatever each player you does at the plate, or however they pitch, those stats are added to your created player. Over the year the stats will build up like your player would be playing in actual games, or whatnot.

So, since there is a way to keep track of specific created players, I thought maybe we could have a Bucs Dugout "league" as it were, where everyone who is interested would be in the group and we'd just kind of compete against each other, or track each other during the year. I made a player for each position and obviously made them all Pirates, although the team you select isn't really that important, at least for this. So if anyone wants to do this, post in here and I'll figure out how to add your players to the list because I haven't actually tried that out yet. But it should be like adding real player to a real Custom Teams list which is pretty easy.

You can see the complete rules for the Game here. A FAQ post just went up recently as well.
