yay baseball!

I've been co-commish of the league for several years, but now voltch has handed complete control of the league over to me. We have at least one spot to fill in the league, so we're looking for anyone who might be interested. The league is 12 team, standard draft, fairly standard rules (I can give details if you want). Looking for people who intend to be active throughout the season. Preference to people we're familiar with.

Beyond that, we need to set a draft time. Pretty much any evening would work for me, although weekends usually work best for most people. Right now I'm thinking Saturday, March 16th. If that doesn't work for people, let me know what times would be best for you. We could also discuss potential rule changes, but I think we'll probably stick with what we've had.

What's the time commitment on fantasy baseball, relative to fantasy football?

I can't do that as I'll be in Florida still.
The following week, any weeknight works (18th-22nd), though we have the auction draft tentatively on the 22nd so not that unless you want to double up.
My availibility is also in the air that following weekend but I can do March 25 26 or 27 in the evening as well (season starts the 28th)

Greater, since football is a once a week thing and baseball there's daily lineups. You can of course, just set your lineup in advance, but you may give an edge here and there with guys maybe sitting unexpectedly and stuff.

Ah, makes sense. In that case, even though it sounds fun, but I will probably take a pass on wanting to fill the spot you guys need filled.

Okay, so we might have to do it on a weeknight then (or like next weekend if we're gonna do it on a weekend). If it's a weeknight, it would probably be 9 PM EST. Maybe like, Thursday March 21st.

Sunday the 17th could also potentially work, but it's St. Patrick's Day. I'd be fine for it, but I don't know about everyone else.

I should be able to make auction league though since later in the month works best. Standard league probably not if we are thinking mid-March, but I am ultimately cool with whatever. If I am autodrafted, then so be it.

It'll be very easy for me to forget about the draft, so if somebody could drop a reminder my way like 15 minutes beforehand, that'd be great.
