Are there any baseball fans what might be interested in a sim baseball league?  I play on What If Sports and a little on Imagine Sports. Although I prefer WIS, I think the minimum number of teams is 24.  Imagine Sports allows for a 12 team league.

My thought is to have three games per day.  Some ideas for themes would be: select a franchise which is exclusive to you, specific year and all players from that year are in the draft, or select a decade (exclusive franchise or free for all for the decade).

The cost on WIS is $12 and Imagine Sports is $24.  I think the quickest to get started would be the Imagine Sports option.

With baseball season upon us and fantasy games not starting for awhile, I thought this might ease baseball fans into the season.

www.imaginesports.com

Let me know if you're interested and if so, let's get started.

I thought the same thing.  I figured he had a setup on his phone for when key words like baseball was mentioned.

My plate's really pretty full.  I've never done a Sim league as I always figured it was very time consuming.  I am going to check out your links and see what it's all about.

They're really not that time consuming at all. On WIS, you can pretty much set your lineups and pitching rotations and check in once a day. The main thing you want to look at when you do check lineups in fatigue; however, they usually aren't bad. I believe the commish can set the league so there's no injuries.

I would prefer WIS, but like I mentioned, I believe you need 24 players compared to 12 on Imagine Sports.

If you would prefer to hold off on our own league, we can jump on one that is a public one at Imagine Sports. Those fill pretty fast.

So you don't have to sit and watch the games play out?  I always thought you watch the games like a manager, and make substitutions and pitching changes during the game.  

It sounds like it's more of a GM role where you create your roster and make lineup moves as a coach based on injuries, fatigue, slumps, or hunches.  

How does a league start?  Is it done by a draft, or by selecting a team, or era, or something else?

There is a site I used to belong to that you did just what you thought. It was real time and you controlled the game. However, HERE you pretty much serve as the GM, but then as a manager by setting and adjusting lineups and rotations as you see fit. There is an option to use the waiver wire, but that's up to how the league is set up.

As you said, you can draft a franchise, decade, year, or on Imagine Sports do a draft. It can be a live draft done over time, or all owners pick players along with alternates. You set the order you want players selected. If you want a player, but he is chosen by an owner who had him ranked higher, you get the alternate or the site picks a player who compares to the one you initially wanted.

Hopefully that makes sense.

A player stats are based on the year selected or his career. It's important to know that not all sim stats compare to a player's real life stats.
