McC $$ Auction-Style Fantasy League: ESPN


Myself and a few other McC groupies are attempting to start a fairly hardcore Auciton- Style keeper League on ESPN.com starting this season, and I wanted to see if anybody on here may have some interest in partaking. I've noticed most people on here use Yahoo for their respective fantasy leagues, so I figured maybe there were a few of you out there like myself who prefer to use ESPN.

The hope is to start a 14-team keeper league, using an auction style draft fueled by some of the finest fantasy baseball minds in the Bay Area. Since playing for a little dough always seems to ensure that everybody pays close attention to their shit day in and day out, we are going to implement an entry fee of $40-$50, and use a third party website (i.e. Leaguesafe) to ensure all payments are taken care of properly.

Like I said before, the atmosphere we are aiming for is a fairly competitive league filled with owners who know baseball, and like to shoot the shit, and even talk some trash. So far we've got 5 guys committed, which means we're looking for 9 more owners to fill the league out. I little background info on the owners currently in the league:

- Myself: Lifelong Giants fan and season ticket holder since 2000

- 1 Baseball Hall of Fame Employee / Giants Fan

- 2 more hardcore Giants Fans / Sabermetric nerds

- A lamesauce Red Sox fan for us all to pick on.

We're gonna use a 6 x 6 scoring system (open to changes), with the following categories:

Offensive Categories

Runs / Home Runs / Runs Batted In / Steals / Batting Average / On Base plus Slugging

Pitching Categories

Strikeouts / Wins / Quality Starts / ERA / WHIP / Saves plus Holds
