Anyone who might be interested in participating in the Bucs Dugout fantasy league, please follow me after the jump.
Here's the deal. The draft is March 27 at 4:00 PM EST. Unfortunately, that's non-negotiable; it's just about impossible to find a time that will work for everyone, and trying to accommodate people who can't make it just creates more problems than it solves.
There will be 16 teams, the same as last year, although I'm making the rosters a little bit more traditional (21 players instead of 25) so that it's not impossible to maneuver if you have a player get hurt. That said, it's an unusually deep league. Also, we get rid of traditional categories like batting average and stolen bases and replace them with better ones like OBP and SLG. So if you're frustrated (as I typically am) in o ther leagues when you have to draft Kevin Gregg, this is the league for you, because here you only have to worry about players who are good at hitting and pitching. We're also playing head-to-head, which I find is a more effective format for keeping people interested the whole year.
Priority will be given to people who played in the league last year, but I'd imagine there will still be a bunch of spots available, so if you want one, please send me an email or leave a comment stating your interest.
I'm running the BD fantasy league at CBSSports.com this year because, well, they're paying me to. In fact, please consider this entire post an ad. Here's the legal language:
CBSSports.com is an SB Nation partner and paying sponsor of the SB Nation baseball communities.
This post is one of a series of sponsor endorsed posts related to the CBSSports.com Fantasy Baseball Commissioner League.
It honestly doesn't make me too comfortable to put an ad right here in the text of the site, but I hope you won't begrudge me the chance to make a little bit of money here. There will be several more posts about the league this March, and then one a month during the season.
CBSSports.com leagues usually cost money, but this one will be free. In addition, if you'd like to set up your own league, please use this link: you'll get half off the price, and I'll get a kickback too.
