    I was part of a light whale fantasy football league this past season and really enjoyed it. Is anyone interested in doing one for baseball? You'd put in 2 bottles of high quality, more limited beer - things like various years of Darklord and Darkness, Kate, Rosso e Marrone, Upland Kiwi, etc were part of the football league. These all get agreed up at the start of the season. They don't have to be too crazy, just stuff that isn't easily bought off the shelf (things even like BCBCS, King Henry, CBS, etc would all be fine). Your beers will go out as a pair so you only ship to one person.

    At the end of the season, the designated winners get to pick in a draft style the beers they want. We can determine number of boxes/places when we get a final number of people (shooting for 10).

    This will be an auction draft and I'm thinking of doing head to head but can go either way on that. Draft would likely be the last weekend before the season starts (also negotiable). I'd like to use ESPN for it.

    Send me a message or post here if you are interested.

    I'd also prefer head to head as I'm in another that's not. Like to mix it up.

    Yeah my other one is going to be roto so I think head to head sounds pretty good. I'd pick daily rosters as well.

    Head the head kind of sucks for baseball though.

    I'm interested but would rather be clear on the rules from the get-go instead of what has gone on in the other league we're in.

    Sounds good to me. This will definitely be an auction draft league with regular waiver wire (no bidding on waiver). I think we should just plan on this year and then we'll see at the end of the season if we want to do another year/keepers. I'd also like it to be head to head.

    As long as we're talking about waivers/free agents, I think it's always best to only process free agent pick ups once a week (Sunday night), as it levels the playing field for everyone that doesn't sit in front of a computer all day. As long as there is a 5 man bench or so it shouldn't be a problem.

    If you make this an auction/roto, I am in. Weekly moves/transactions even better.

    I can do roto if that's what it takes to get some more people. I think I counted six people earlier before you. I'd also prefer to use ESPN but could do Yahoo.

    Which things would make you go one way or the other?

    ESPN is fine with me. I use them for fantasy football. Did most people sound like they wanted a keeper or y2y league?

    I haven't heard either way. Right now these are who I have interested:

    ejyoung
    AReno00
    Phoptos
    homebrew311
    DrWalterWhite
    osubuckeye99
    Duffman929 (maybe)
    juhl31 (maybe)

    I'd say we need at least 2 more and the maybes to make it happen.

    We can do 8 with just AL only, if you can't get more. NL only will be really tough.

    I'm down with 8 and AL only if that's all we can get. I'll give it until the end of the week - when do we want to target a draft for?

    I'm probably out if we do AL only. Don't mean to seem like a poor sport, but I just don't know enough about the AL to do an AL only league. I haven't watched the AL with any regularity since the early 90s.
