    Yeah, and Phil Nevin is going to lead the league in RBI. I sure hope he falls to me in Round 1.

    Ayuda, por favor!

    Someone sent a message that they are a rookie. In truth, I am a rookie as well. NOT to baseball, but to Fantasy play.

    So, besides drafting players, what else do we do? I want to make sure I keep up whatever the heck I am supposed to do.

    Is there a "Fantasy Baseball for Dummies"? :icon_huh:
    If so, I want it.

    Champ wants active players. The only way to stay truly active is to know the rules and what to do and when to do it. Daily, weekly-whatever.

    I know the "who", just not the where, when, why and how!:yes:

    Hey, I'm a rookie player too... Do we get to pick first? :lol:

    I don't know the first thing about this either.... BFUK said he did his ranking of players and I had no idea what he was talking about.:icon_shrug:

    well the playing is the easy part...
    you make a team roster and cross your fingers...

    for example...it doesnt help to have a pitcher on your roster for the day that isnt pitching.
    if Jake Peavy is on your team and hes pitching that day, he needs to be on your active roster and so on.

    if hes not, than its wasted...

    you need to watch for catchers that wont be playing, or hurt short stops that need to be replaced by your utility guy....

    you have to be updated on your players every day, all year long

    but im a rookie...i wrote the message to you guys...
    but just to fantasy baseball, ive done football and hockey

    BDH, how do I pre rank my draft???? Is there a link??

    I know that I have to pick at least 25 players (not same position) and rank them.... I just don't know where to go to do this..

    you go onto draft central then click pre-draft rankings and then if you can't draft your team live then it does it for you based on those rankings

    So, is this a Rotissserie League(stats), Fantasy Points League or is this a Head-to-Head League(win/loss record)?:icon_huh:

    I'm guessing Head-to-Head.

    It makes a difference in who I want to draft.

    I know that the better my players perform, the more points they earn for my team overall.

    So far, I've drafted 22 players. I want to add more but would like this question answered first.

    Carrie I usually just go by the Yahoo rankings. I couldn't make the draft in UK's league and yahoo picked a better team than I probably would have. :lol:

    On the league page it should show you where to pre-rank your players. If you can't find it let me know.

    I won't be able to make the draft. I have to be @ work tommorrow night @ 10pm, so I'll be getting ready for work/going to work during the draft. As long as the yahoo pre draft ranking works ok, Im sure it will be fine.

    :(

    Yes, thanks for your help...Now keeping the fingers crossed for a low draft pick number... :tup:

    I'm told this is an every day commitment. You have to line your team up daily, be sure your guys are actually playing/pitching, not injured, etc...

    Trades are going to be interesting for this dummy... Think I need to buy the book Fantasy Baseball for Dummies (if there is one) :icon_mrgreen:

    Thanks Boss... ;)

    Hey if I have pre ranked my draft and don't make it to the live draft.... will Yahoo pick my players or is there something I have to do to ensure that this happens?
