    Today at 08:18:23 PM
  • h4cheng: 2nd is optimal, 3rd is not as good but better than say 4th
    Today at 08:19:04 PM
  • h4cheng: They did a study where they looked at the batting order as a Markov chain and they found the optimal lineup would have the best hitter hitting 2nd and no lower than 3rd I think
    Today at 08:20:24 PM

%Share Ownership-Style 30-Team Redraft Leagues
« on: November 15, 2012, 06:00:45 PM »
Are you tired of the basic run of the mill, free - or even money, leagues where activity is low, Commissioners may not be trusted, and the scoring is bland?  How about some deep leagues where you feel like a real GM taking over your favorite franchise and playing it for one year.  You could take over the Astros where expectations are low and win money just on improving the team from April 1st to October 1st.

What if you could own shares of multiple teams and win money based on their performance and improvement?  What if you could play in a 30-team league with deep rosters for free (have someone else as the financial owner)?  We have four copies of the same type of 30-team redraft franchise-style league.  Essentially, the entry fees go up by a multiple in each league.  Entry fees vary per team based on the final regular season standing of actual teams last season.

Here are the entries per each team in the Grandstands league.  The multipliers for the other leagues are 0.5, 1.5, and 2, so for example the Nationals would cost $50, $100, $150, and $200.  You can own shares of up to five teams and majority ownership (51%) will give you control of the GM seat (you can only GM one team though).  For instance, if you wanted to own 60% of the Rays at $80 then your entry would be $48.  You could also add more to your entry by investing in other teams.  A majority investor can hire a GM.

:WAS: Washington Nationals  $100
:CIN: Cincinnati Reds  $98
:NYY: New York Yankees  $96
:OAK: Oakland Athletics  $94
:SF: San Francisco Giants  $92
:DET: Detroit Tigers  $90
:ATL: Atlanta Braves  $88
:BAL: Baltimore Orioles  $86
:TEX: Texas Rangers  $84
:STL: St. Louis Cardinals  $82
:TB: Tampa Bay Rays  $80
:LAA: Los Angeles Angels  $78
:LAD: Los Angeles Dodgers  $76
:CHW: Chicago White Sox  $74
:MIL:  Milwaukee Brewers  $72
:ARZ:  Arizona Diamondbacks  $70
:PHI:  Philadelphia Phillies  $68
:PIT:  Pittsburgh Pirates  $66
:SD:  San Diego Padres  $64
:SEA:  Seattle Mariners  $62
:NYM:  New York Mets  $60
:TOR:  Toronto Blue Jays  $58
:KC:  Kansas City Royals  $56
:BOS:  Boston Red Sox  $54
:MIA-MLB:  Miami Marlins  $52
:CLE:  Cleveland Indians  $50
:MIN:  Minnesota Twins  $48
:COL:  Colorado Rockies  $46
:CHC:  Chicago Cubs  $44
:HOU:  Houston Astros  $42

All of these leagues are for one year and rosters are already set as of the end of 2012.  There will be an opportunity to change the face of your team through aggressive trade markets in which you can find fellow GMs on the site chat every day.

Well, if you're interested then shoot an email to me at cschaeffer@profsl.com with the subject "Redraft 30-Team $$$ League" and I can send you the link... or if you are reading this then you can check out the links to each of the following league boards.

If you already have an idea of which team or teams you want then let me know.  As I said, there are four of these leagues with entry fees ranging from $26-50 to $84-200.  I will be updating this thread with available teams as the list becomes smaller to post.

First come first served but you could be kicked out due to inactivity and non-payment, so any payment will reserve a team.  Payments are accepted via SportsVault (secure payment processing site for fantasy leagues) and PayPal.  Leagues are organized in a trusted community by the staff.

Feel free to reply with any questions you may have, or post which teams you may want.

Cheers!

Will mark you down for that Pete - can you respond to the sign-up sheet at the league (board link is contained in the main post).

The better you do in the league, the more you can win.  Even if you took over the worst team and just improved its standing year-over-year, you will win money as a result.

You can navigate to links to each of the four leagues and read through the rules at the Park Series home page.  Trading is already going on in these leagues, but your team must have been paid in order to take a GM seat.  Feel free to reply if you have any questions.

Want an opportunity to play in the 2014 MLB Invitational which could have a total prize pot of $3,000 (free to enter)?

Well, you would have a good chance at qualifying by participating in the Park Series.  Would you want a realistic league that doesn't have the pain of dealing with contracts and is a one-year league designed to reward those GMs who do the best with what they were given?

Well, go check it out now! Park Series Rules
