Hey everyone. This is Derek Harvey and I'll be your league manager. As you can see, our league name is "Rollie Fingers." If you're interested, the other leagues are "Robin Yount," "Hank Aaron," and "Paul Molitor." I've created our league using ESPN and sent out invites. Hopefully everyone has received their invites, but if not let me know in the comments and I'll send it out again.
Just to recap, we're doing a Head-to-Head: Points league. If you're not familiar I'll explain. Head-to-Head is a format where two teams face each other over the course of a week. At the end of the week, the one with the most points wins that match-up. The scoring for a points league is different than most other formats. Players are given points, or docked points, for their actions in a game. The total at the end of the week for all your players is your team's score. I've never done a league like this so I just went with the default settings. The 4 teams with the best records at the end of the regular season make it into the playoffs. There will be two rounds, each lasting two weeks.
The scoring categories are as follows:
Batting: Total Bases (1 pt each), Runs Scored (1 pt), Stolen Bases (1 pt), Caught Stealing (-1 pt), Walks (1 pt), RBI (1 pt),
Pitching: Strikeouts (-1 pt); Innings Pitched (3 pts each), Earned Runs (-2 pt), Wins (5 pts), Losses (5 pts), Strikeouts (1 pt), Hits Allowed (-1), Walks Issued (-1 pt), Saves Plus Holds (5 pts)
I have tentatively set the draft for Tuesday, March 18th at 9:30 pm. Based on the information you provided that seemed like the best time, but we can change it. If that time doesn't work for you let me know in the comments and I'll try to find the best day and time to draft. I will be unavailable to draft between Thursday the 20th and Sunday the 23rd. We'll be doing a snake draft. Once everyone, or most everyone, has joined the league I will randomize the draft order so you can start planning your draft if you like.
Good luck to everyone, and I hope we all have fun!
