Default Need 5 guys for a MLB DYNASTY FANTASY LEAGUE- ESPN

So, after some of the guys I work with for the Indians blog on ESPN.com told me about the premise of this, I really thought that I would like to run a dynasty league. If you are unfamiliar with what a "dynasty league" is, I HIGHLY encourage you ESPN's Dynasty draft column that can be found on their fantasy mlb tab.


Basically it is a league in which you draft 40 players. You are constructing your own team not only for this year, but for the future. At the end of each season, you can choose to keep you're entire team of 40 players, or throw some back. There is a draft in-between each season to allow you to re-fill your roster to 40 players.


Teams typically feature a mix of the traditional high profile players (Braun, Trout, Pujols, etc.) and also a mix of young prospect players (Addison Russell, Byron Buxton, Danny Hultzen, etc.). The key to playing in one of these leagues is to know what young players to invest in, and what veterans to avoid. It really seems like the ultimate fantasy baseball experience - Draft your own 40 man roster, and make your own decisions. Trade your all-star player for a package of prospects. Release a struggling veteran to pick up that guy who is pitching well in Low-A ball. I think this is just a really cool premise...and I thought guys here may be interested because a lot of the prospects we collect will likely be draft picks for us in this format!


I have created a league with the same sort of rules as was listed in the article; the only difference is instead of doing a snake draft, I chose to instead do an auction draft- Some people seem to be scared off by auction drafts, but they truly are the most fair way to draft teams. I have never met someone who has tried an auction draft who didn't like it more than a snake.


Anyways, If you would be interested in this, let me know. I would really like to have serious inquiries only. This means if you are going to join, I expect you to be playing next year, and the year after that. I don't want guys to join, have a rough first year, then quit as their prospects are just going to be making it to the big leagues. I want it to be a good group of guys who really like to play fantasy baseball.


Ideally, I would like to provide a small prize for the winner each year. I was thinking something small - 10 bucks from each person in the league or less. If anyone has ideas for this, let me know.


Oh, and I would like 10 teams. No more, no less. Again, if seriously interested, please let me know. We already have 5 guys in, so claim a spot now if you want in.

I've been looking for a dynasty league and I am more than interested in becoming an owner. Please let me know. I've subscribed to this thread.

Thanks,

Joe

As far as a prize I was in a Beckett league last year and what the commissioner did was take the money and buy a card and give the card to the winner. As the commissioner choose five cards in the price range of the fees collected and let the owners vote on which card should be the prize.

I won a Nolan Ryan auto last year and I love the card.

So as far as prizes I had a couple options (on top of jbs good ideas)
A. 10 a person 1st 60$ 2nd 30$ 3rd 10$
B. Everyone sends in at least a 10-15$ baseball cards to league manager, winner receives 4 of choice 2nd chooses 2 3rd chooses 1 most total PTs chooses 1


Just some ideas!
