One of my favorite things to do on this site the last few years has been to run the official Purple Row Fantasy Baseball league. Last year I ran two leagues, winning one of them and finishing fifth in the other. This season, I'll be scaling it back to one official league (but that doesn't mean there has to be only one - you're free to organize others).
So here's the deal - I'll be running a standard Yahoo! league (roto scoring) with 12 teams and a live auction draft. The draft time is of course flexible depending on the availability of the league's participants, but I'm thinking some time next weekend would be the best. I'm aware that the official season starts early on Saturday morning the 22nd in Australia, but the draft doesn't necessarily have to happen before that.
Both my dad and I will have teams in the league, which means that 10 of you will get the opportunity to beat The Aberle Guarantee senseless in fantasy baseball this upcoming year. State your case in the comments thread. Bonus points will be awarded for humorous team names and/or telling me why I'd be able to beat you.
I've sent out invites to the league to those who applied below as well as to some who participated last year. First come, first served!
Draft is tentatively scheduled for Thursday the 27th at 7:00 MDT, stats kept during the season will retroactively include the Australia games.
League is full, good luck to all. The draft time is being changed to Thursday at 8:00 MDT as I had a work commitment come up that will take at least until 7:30. PLEASE SHOW UP. These things are a lot more fun if you do.
