I have sent invites to the three other playoff-qualifying teams from last season since I know they will provide sufficient competition: I'm Rusty Kuntz?, The Human Cespedes, and The Real Nitzilla. That leaves six slots at least up for grabs for anyone who is interested in playing, and if there is a demand for more, I'm opening to pulling an NHL and expanding the league more than I should.
Here are the particulars:
–Draft is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, March 16th at 8:00 ET/5:00 PT, unless there's enough life conflicts that we can move the date/time.
–AUCTION DRAFT. That's right, Fuj, this is a real fucking league of GM skills. Mike Trout isn't just gonna fall in the lap of the lucky bastard who wins the luck of the automated draw; every owner has a shot at every player, which is way more interesting in terms of roster building (and drafted, since you're always on the clock and bidding against others). Do you break your budget for superstars or balance it out? How do you divvy up your cash between pitching and hitting? And so forth.
–Head-to-head weekly matchups by categories, wins and losses culminate over the season (so if you win 7 out of 10 categories in your opening match, you'll carry a 7-3 record into the next match, similar to the Fantasy Basketball League of DOOM).
–Basic 5×5 scoring categories as follows:
Offense: AVG, R, HR, RBI, SB
Pitching: W, ERA, WHIP, K, SV
-7-player weekly acquisition limit, but no seasonal limit on acquisitions and no games played limit on hitters or innings pitched. Starting lineups will consist of C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF slots, and 2 UTIL slots; your daily starting pitching roster can have 2 active SP, 2 RP, and 4 SP/RP slots. There are five bench slots for the rest of your team and 2 DL slots.

, first come, first served. If you are interested, you're more than welcome to play as long as you intend to play all season long, whether you're top of the division or chilling like a Cub at the bottom.
PLAY BALL, BITCHES
