    This is year three for the 3-MLB-Teams-Per-Owner League!

    Here's how it works... Basically, the league has 10 fantasy teams, and instead of drafting players, each owner drafts 3 MLB teams. 30 MLB teams / 10 owners = 3 MLB teams per owner.

    You get all the players on the 3 teams you end up drafting and use those players to make up your lineup. There is no trading. You can add/drop free agents, but you can ONLY pick up players who are on one of the 3 teams you drafted (I will police this manually).

    So, say you end up drafting the Yankees, Dodgers and Pirates... then your roster will be comprised of these players only for the whole year. The challenge comes with picking 3 MLB teams that fit well together.

    It will be a three round draft. The first two rounds will be regular serpentine style, but the third round will be randomized.

    The scoring system is fantasy points head-to-head, similar to fantasy football scoring. Starting lineups and other details are listed below. Since there is no trading and because lineups are set weekly (not daily), this will be a relatively low-maintenance league.

    If you are interested, post a message here and also sign up on the Yahoo site! We'll do the draft here on the BBS, and we'll get it going as soon as the league is filled up.

    Hey Fade, want to join the league but don't know how. Can you help me resolve this conundrum? I love this format by the way, was awesome the last two years.

    Ever since Yahoo changed their format, I have no idea how the hell things work anymore.

    I sent you a message. If there is space, I am looking forward to redeeming myself. I think I lost in the finals by a mere point or something very close.

    Umm.. Not sure what to think here. Judging by the shared e-mail address in each of these messages, this looks like the same person with multiple accounts?

    Not that collusion would ever be an issue in a league with no trades, but it's probably not a good idea for one person to have two teams.

    Nippystix, I sent you an invite and you're welcome to play in the league, but let's leave the alter-ego out of it.

    Haha, no alter ego involved. This actually came up last year. PippenAintEZ is my brother. Before last year, I would just use his account (like for the previous 5+ years, as either of us rarely post). I decided to get with the times and get my own account, and part of the impetus for that was to do this league last year. Both my brother and I were actually in the league last year, with me faring better I might add!

    If this is a problem, then no worries, I'll let him do it, as he did reply in this thread first (PippenAintEZ).

    Ah, I see. Okay, if that's the case I don't see why not. I'll send him an invite too.
