    A lot of die-hard baseball fans here.

    How many people would be interested in playing in a CBS Sportsline FANTASY BASEBALL League for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

    A serious league, I mean we each put like $50 or $100 (or whatever price we agree on). Have payouts for 1st and 2nd place or can just do winner take all. Whatever, we decide. We can have AJ or MUCK hold the money in a pay pal account or something for everyone, so there is no monkey business with that.

    If interested I can set everything up. Email me at PhinZone@aol.com if you would be interested in such a league.

    No more than 10 or 12 teams so first come first serve I say. Post your thoughts, wha kind of rules you would like, how much money we should all kick in...etc here in this thread. IF you want to play, EMAIL me!

    The main question is how much are people willing to put up.

    Perfect world, we all put up $100. Get like a $1,000 pot or $1,200 pot. Take whatever off the top that CBS charges to run the league then have a $600, $300, $200 payout for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.

    If everyone can't do $100 then maybe $50 or $75 and we can adjust the numbers accordingly. I can hold the money. Or AJ or Muck can. I have run numerous leagues like this when I was doing PhinZone so it wouldn't be a problem for me. But whatever EVERYONE is comftorable with.

    No problems here, I love fantasy baseball.. CBS has the best also.. I would love to get 12 solid owners, 10 is to little in my opinion..

    I got 2 people willing to pay $50 and 1 willing to pay $100.

    Early trend looks like a $50 entry fee (but that could change).

    You sound like such a little girl... you don't know anyone's situation. There's alot of people, me personally and I'm sure that I'm not alone, that can do more productive things with that 50 or 100 bucks then shutting you up.

    Cry me a river.. :boohoo:

    wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I don't have $50 to spend! Wahhhhhhhhhhhh. If you don't have $50 for a fantasy baseball league and with all the time you spend here online, then maybe its time to get a job!

    And if your such a baseball expert you could turn that $50 into $500 or so easily by just winning the league! That is just good business!

    Im not crying, just pointing out once again a few people here talk the talk, but when its time to WALK THE WALK or put up money to back up their talk.........they put their tails between their legs ONCE AGAIN!

    Your probably the type that signs up for the league, doesn't send their entry fee money till September. Then when they win, they get all upset when the money isn't sent to them the day after the season!

    Waiting to hear back from a couple people, but we will have enough. Just a matter of how many we want in the league.

    I will then register the league with CBS. We can have a 2 week period where people can register with CBS if they aren't already, and send in their entry fee money. Then we can start talking draft times and such.

    I need some time to sort out what 2 leagues I will be in this year. I am always in too many, and I would like to get into 2 that really matter. Nothing worse than a dead league, with owners that won't respond to trades and other league matters. A league with 12 hardcore fantasy baseball owners, that frequent the boards and their team are the best leagues.. I will try to settle for nothing less this year.. Football under this system for me worked well this year, even though I took 4th...:fire:

    Well I was thinking of a ROTO league. Therefore, it doens't matter if we have an even or odd number. And if someone backs out last minute, its no big deal.

    I think this league will be active. 1) Everyone (or almost everyone) will be from this board. So, we can have fun and rag on each other. Nobody wants to finish last and hear it for 365!!

    2) Everyone is putting up $50 and the cash prize will be worthwhile. Which means there is no reason for anyone to quit. Also if we have payouts for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd......then even if somoene has no shot for 1st place, they can still stay active and shoot for 3rd or something and get back some money

    I know what you mean man...if the league isn't interesting, there just isnt a point in playing. I hope the people that are participating in this league are intrigued and willing....but with money on the line, they should be.

    Who is the list of people in so far? Mike O, I sent ya an email, and am down for whatever, so I don't care. Really, I know the Red Sox nation and Yankees fans are huge through out, it's just good fun let's get it going. Regardless, maybe 50$ is alot for some which I understand, but I think anyone out of high school can afford that.
