I didn't see one set up yet. It's Yahoo, 20 team league, 5x5 roto scoring, and a live draft.

I'm in, looking to preserve my history of finishing strongly in W fantasy leagues*.


*as long as they're baseball leagues.

Hmmm. Have we lost that many W's? These leagues used to fill up incredibly fast. Granted, there is still a lot of time for you all to join. I just don't want to recruit non W's if I don't have to.

It leads me to wonder, I don't know if CRZ pops in here or not and I might take this question to another area, but has the traffic around here decreased a lot over the years?

I think user traffic is down, but guest traffic is up - but which users are active kinda ebbs and flows. If you're really bored, you might want to go back to the previous years' fantasy threads and see which inactive users are represented in 'em... { Sorry, you must be logged in to see this text! }

I'm not playing any longer, and I used to play every year. It takes up too much of my time.

Some of the other people who used to play are no longer on the board.

I agree with Guru. I used to play every single year, winning the inaugural one in like 2002 or something, but I can't anymore. I'm already part of 2 baseball leagues which I've paid a tidy sum of cash to take part in, and without any sort of reward other than gloating I can't do it anymore.

Yup, that all makes sense when I think about it. I forgot but I actually missed last year's league. I'm sure we'll be pretty close to full by draft time. It just led me to wonder about how heavy the traffic has been around here lately.

I played the last few years, but last season I quickly lost interest because of a couple things. One, I inevitable miss the draft and end up with some weird auto-drafted team. Two, it is a free league, so it's hard to justify spending an hour combing the waiver wire for a 6th relief pitcher. And three, I don't know much about the NL. If it was an AL-only league I would be more interested since I follow the AL pretty closely, but the NL is like a whole other country for me.

I've found that I'm just not in as many leagues this year as I was last year. For one, it looks like we'll be struggling to even fill one league (let alone two like there were last year), and some of my other leagues haven't even formed yet. I know that a couple of them will, but going from 7 leagues down to 5 regular ones is a shift, even if one of them is new.

About the active user comment: Speaking from personal experience, I'm still here about as much as I used to be, but I post a lot less - maybe once a week now as opposed to about once a day. Maybe some people are just coming around once a week that used to come by more often?

(To keep remotely on-topic: still in the league.)

Yeah, I'm getting a little nervous. It kind of feels like MLB after the strike year. I'm still holding out hope that enough people will show in the next week or two.

I run a league on Yahoo with some people in a chatroom I talk in, and I usually struggle to get it to 10. I was very happy this year to expand the field to 12. I've found though, through personal experiences, I'm not a big fan of large leagues, 12-14 is an optimal number, anything over that, and the depth become too thin for my liking.

If the league is too thin I'll sign up.

I fear for my productivity in life, however.

Jump in my man, the water's fine!

Edit: I've said this to a couple of the people I've tried to recruit already, but I sort of feel like the Paris Hilton trying to get all the Britneys out of rehab to party one last time.
