0 Subject: RIBC - AA league at Yahoo

Posted by: Guru
- [330592710] Mon, Feb 25, 2013, 11:58

One of the RIBC AA leagues will be hosted at Yahoo, with Khahan as the commissioner.

The following seven returning managers from 2012 have already committed to manage a team in this league:

Matt G
s R

Khahan has been sent a list of email addresses for these managers.

A full league will have 16 teams. If you are interested in managing a team in this league, please sign up below. No previous experience is required, but here are the requirements and expectations that you should aware of:

1. The league will use 5x5 rotisserie scoring. Hitting categories are R, RBI, SB, OBP, and SLG. Pitching categories are W, S, SO, ERA, and WHIP

2. Rosters will have 25 players, of which 21 will be active and four will be bench.

3. Drafting will take place during the second half of March, using 25 rounds. This will be a slow online draft, during which you should be prepared to make 2-4 picks per day. Queues can be set up to handle your picks automatically if your availability during the day is limited. However, you should generally be available for the draft consistently during the 10-14 days of its duration.

4. You must provide a working email address to your commissioner, and you must be responsive at that address - particularly during the preseason.

If you would like to sign up for this league, please provide your email address below.

Hey all

Our Yahoo league is set up. 7 of us in so far which leaves 9 spots. Once you post here I'll email you the league ID and pword. The 9 remaining spots are first come first serve.

Even in AA, we expect quality managers who are active the whole year. 2 years ago I believe it was Goatlocker in 8th place or so staying active making moves and chipping points away that affected 1st and 2nd place finishes. So there is always a reason to stay active.

Once the draft opens up, I'll start a Draft rationale thread in the leagues/standings forum. We should keep the recaps at least 2-3 rounds behind the actual draft (IE, round 3, you can put your round 1 rationale up). This is strongly encouraged, very strongly encouraged for many reasons.

We'll also be holding the draft at drafttime.come The drafttime info will be on the yahoo league page. Please sign up for the draft as soon as you sign up for Yahoo.

If anyone else would like to switch to the ESPN league, it's not too late - especially if mixed up your request.

Info sent Wiggs. Uhh, this AA league looks more like AAA or the bigs. 8 returning long time and competitive gurupies as the basis to start.

We're already up to 10, at least according to this thread. We only have 6 registered, though 2 of the 10 were just sent registration info. But the Yahoo league is going to be competitive and popular it seems. First come, first serve. Sign up now.

Dang, are you sure we haven't had this exact league before at some point in time.
Sure looks like that to me.
Looking forward to a great season with all of you guys.

10 signed up at yahoo, 8 signed up at drafttime. Email sent to the 2 managers not yet in drafttime.

Again, anybody interested in joining the AA Yahoo league, that would be returning managers who did not qualify for AAA or RIBC and any managers participating for the first time, please email me or post here and I will send you the yahoo and drafttime information. Its important to sign up for both at once. We will draft at drafttime and I cannot start anything there until we have ALL participants registered.

Here's who we have so far. If managers could please confirm their names, because team names, drafttime names and and guru handles don't always match up.
Listed by guru handle, yahoo team name, drafttime name in that order

Khahan - Khahan's Killers - Khahan
Perm Dude- Fightin Amish - Perm Dude
Goatlocker - Goatlockers Goons -Goatlocker
MBT - MBT -My Bad Team
Meatwad - Mighty Meatwads - Mighty Meatwads
Matt G - Norfolk Neptunes - Kemics
Taxman- Tax Hits -Taxman
damoose - the buccos -moose7474
filthy filthyrich rocketrichard
s R - s R - eserel
wiggs - wiggs supernova - wiggs

This is more for my own sanity than anything else so that I can manage entering teams correctly, make sure the proper teams are signed up etc. Pretty sure I have them all right, but please let me know if I have any of you confused with each other.

Neise is #13. Only 3 spots left.

And for the record Niese, you finished 13th last season, not last. That distinction goes to me for the AA yahoo league.

Do we have a time frame for the start date? I've got some time off with the family coming up and just want to make plans for a proxy drafter if necessary.

      Fri, Mar 01, 2013, 13:50
Not yet. We still need 3 more spots filled (or 2). Then we need to set the draft order which can take a day or two. Though I'll be emailing everybody once we're full so they know to be prepared. I won't mess around though, once we get that 16th, I'll start things right away.

This is Khahan, just posting to keep things organized. The 16th slot has been filled assuming Kevin and fat buddha (friend who wants to play) get signed in tonight.

This means anybody else looking to join ribc AA should visit Wolfer's ESPN AA thread to sign up.

Once we get the last spot filled in officially I'll start the discussion thread in the leagues/standings forum and get the random #'s to set the draft selection order.

Looks like 16 are signed up in Yahoo now

As of today there are only 15 teams in the AA league and in the drafttime. It appears poorman opted out in very bad form without any notice to anybody. This is particularly frustrating as we sent who could have been #16 and an active manager (rj) over to the espn league. We are now down to 15 and need 1 more spot filled asap.

I think at this point we just find the 16th and plug him into poorman's draft slot selection.

This is not the AA signup thread. This is a thread for the last year's Yahoo AA league.

If you played in one of the RIBC leagues in 2013, you should have received an email already. Please respond to that. If you didn't get an email, or if you didn't play in a league last year, then indicate your interest in the 2014 thread. Make sure you include your email address and your preference of hosting site (Yahoo or ESPN).

I am in- I thank everyone for their patience and assistence. Although I am not sure I think it is something Fred the board "fixer" did at guru's behest.At any rate the robot protection disappeared. Again I thank everyone- it really was getting quite frustrating not being able to read those things.
