Fantasy/Rotisserie Baseball

There had been some interest expressed in a fantasy/rotisserie baseball league in addition to our Strat/Sim/SABBL. Is there still any such interest? With the beginning of the season on deck I thought it made sense to ask so if there is we can quickly throw something together before we are too far in to the season. I was figuring on a free online league (yahoo, espn, etc.).

If it's a free online thing and won't take too much time then I can certainly be in. How would the draft work?

draft can be done either live online or autopicked once we all were comfortable with draft lists we submit

Probably autopicked

I am willing to go either way. It probably doesn't make sense to proceed unless we get at least two more from the group and preferably four more. The advantage of autopicked is that the default list isn't bad so you can do little or no prep and be ok. On the other hand depending on league depth drafting live could also be no prep if you can go with your gut from still available players and who you have so far.

Wow, the last (and only) time I did roto was about 11 years ago. I like baseball. I like stats. I like games. But I just didn't care for fantasy baseball. It is a lot of work (to me). Figuring out who to sit, who to trade, who to replace if they get injured. I know a lot of people enjoy it, and clearly Scott is one of those people. I just didn't get the enjoyment out of it because I didn't want to put the work into it that I needed to.

So, I feel a bit bad--I think I'm one of the people who should enjoy fantasy baseball, but I just don't. It's funny, I still remember a fair number of the players I had on my team. Carlos Delgado. Jamie Moyer. Chad Kreuter. Don't know why I still remember that, but I do. I guess when you look up stats every day for 162 games, you get to know the names pretty well.
