You have been invited to join The 2009 Plastic Farm Fantasy Baseball League in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball.
In order to join the league, follow the link above or go to game front page, click the “Sign Up Now” or “Get Another Team” button and follow the links to “Join a Custom League”. When prompted, enter the League ID# and password below.
League ID#: 201674
We will send you a confirmation with further details once you have completed the registration process.
Those of you who are veterans know how this work, but pay attention as some of your options have changed.
Prizes: Same structure as before. You win, you get a complete set of signed Plastic Farm comics AND a page of original art of YOUR CHOICE. So long as I drew it and still own it, it’s yours. Prizes get sent out sometime in the offseason. I am pretty fucking slack at it, I admit. If I win, I get to keep my stuff for another year. I have never won. Came close once.
Scoring: It’s a head-to-head league, which means that every week your fantasy team battles one other team in the league in 16 different scoring categories. Batters and Pitchers each score in 7-9 categories. I have removed a few scoring categories this year, including the two hit batter categories. I have added “perfect game” to the pitching scoring.
Gameplay: There are rules posted on the Yahoo site. Any questions, let me know. Most of our players are not Baseball fanatics, and many don’t know much about the game, so you should not feel intimidated if you are not the world’s most knowledgable baseball fanatic. What you should be intimidated by is our shit-talking and the penchant for some of our participants to cheat.
There is a 12 team maximum, which is a necessity since I am a crazy person and have set rosters to something like 30 players.
Autodraft sometime in Late March or early April.
