I like the idea too. It'll help to see Fantrax in action.

I used to be up for whatever, but I'm older now and too tired.

What I was kinda think for the Fantrax league

-Only 6-7 keepers with the 5 minor leaguers
-Decreasing strike outs to -0.5 for hitters
-Changing the second catcher to a utility player
- Possibly adding bench spots if we have to contract teams. I kinda like having everybody score.
-Teams being able to make their own roster moves and seeing how the waiver wire works. This would mean minor leaguers would be eligible from when they were called up and not after they play.
-Possibly elminating the 15 moves per team/year since teams will be able to make their own moves. To counter act adding constantly non DL moves would move you down the waiver wire.

Im open to other suggestions.

We may have to give you your own BBF topic so people don't get confused.  Dave, what do you think?

Can I opt out of th new league. It sounds like a lot more work to be competitive with fewer keepers and more roster moves. Ain't no one got time for all that.

Yes, you can opt out, because nobody is forced in.  Joe and I figure if 8 or more owners are willing to do the experiment, it will be successful.

I would point out that YOU have an opportunity to help Joe and the others who wish to do the Fantax league to set the rules.  How do you complain about rules that haven't been made yet?

Time?  Yes, I know people have lives, but the Fantax league, if neglected, costs you nothing.  I am opposed to too many roster moves too, but now is the time to address that.

I will probably pay our fees at CBS this week.  If there's anyone who doesn't want to play at CBS, please let me know ASAP.  You can only play at Fantrax if you have a team at CBS.  (Gotta CMA)

Nothing is set.  We can keep the 15 move limit if that is what people want. The keepers are also not set if people want more keepers that is ok with me these are just suggestions.

Im in for the Fantrax experimental league. 

If its something like 8 teams, though, you might want to make it an NL only league.

Im in for Fantrax league.

Whether NL-only, or both AL & NL, were starting clean slate, right? Id rather have a completely new team rather than something based on my CBD team...

The original idea was to use the CBS teams to have a better idea of what any difference might make, but Fantrax people may decide to draft from scratch.

Okay, guys.  Time to commit.  CBS has been paid.  Please send your 10 bucks to me asap.  If you aren't playing this year, please let us know asap as well.  If we need Winter meetings, we will have them soon; put your ideas at BBFL asap. 

For those also desiring to play in the free Fantrax league, please register with Doc asap so we can get the experimental rules nailed down.

Dave and i are discussing whether to put a Fantrax topic on this site or put one of both fantasy leagues at BBFL.  What would you prefer?

It might be easier to just put everything in the BBFL that way the non-fantasy players don't need to be bothered with it.

If you registered for Fantrax and don't want to play just let me now and I can delete your team, once we get an idea of how many people want to do both we can come up with the rules.  I'd like to keep in close enough to the CBS league so that we can test stuff out.  I already know how the keeper stuff works so if people want to do a whole new league we can do that too.
