    To join, you need to click the "Get a new team" link, indicate "join custom league", and then enter the league number and password. The link provided in the initial post will only work 100% after you've joined, but there should be that "Get a new team" on the page somewhere. This link might work also:

    Some of the categories are:

    -- Best bat for metal?
    -- Does a maple bat make a ballplayer sound brighter?
    -- Draft pick, or draft (Rollie) fingers?

    OK I signed up. Are all 6 from TB? I would delay the draft if we could get all TB guys, or at least people you know. When you open it up to the public, people join and forget and don't manage their teams and it makes for a miserable league (6 months) of managing. It sucks to play against only half the league. I would pull my team in this case.

    Not all TB guys, but I think most are. A couple are from a Rangers blog I frequent.

    You may not need the password anymore as well. I opened it up, but since the draft is Weds we're on about page 25 of the Custom head to head leagues, so I doubt the "public" can find us ;) Also, I put a notice for serious players only, so hopefully that helps.

    I would delay the draft, but opening day is Thu, and I need to make sure at least everyone can get their lineups in for Fri, when most teams start.

    Thanks to all who have joined so far. Get your friends too.

    Beggar, here are the scoring categories/settings we're using -

    It's not a big deal to start a week after the season starts. Everyone still plays by the same rules.

    We've already got 7 or 8, and I know I have a few buddies that haven't signed up yet, so we should be good.

    Thanks for signing up, good luck!

    I'll play, but I will need an occaisional PM to "remind" me since I don't frequent yahoo often. All of my other teams are on ESPN.

    Lock at 12. Worst would be to have a 13th join and have to boot.

    We have 15 now, I may lock down at 16 w/ 2 divisions, will figure out this evening. I believe I have 2 who I know are playing but haven't signed up yet.

    Anyway, I'll get it straightened out. Should be fun!

    16 teams would be great!!! I love when it gets deeper...makes your pickups and strategy that much more important!! I have a feeling you are going to be a good manager!
