HGH and Centaur Paintings is back for the 2021 season. Greetings from FANTASY LAND!



Feel free to name your team after literal fantasy themes because Puerto Rico was boring.

Stupid Special Rules
There is a fee, with the money divvied up 60/30/10 to the first, second, and third place teams respectively. Every year the winner has been paid so your ten dollars are safe with me.
Mandatory 3 Keeper rule: You must keep 3 players before the draft, despite how lovely your roster is. If you don't keep three players I will select them for you based upon average draft position.

This is an ESPN league with 80% goons in it. Scoring is Batting Average, HR, RBI, R, BBs, and SBs on offense. Ks, Wins, Saves, Holds, ERA, and WHIP on pitching.

We use the Free Agent Auction System which results in hilarious overpays for waiver wire guys and dudes that get called up for one start and then sent back down.

This is the current roster size. Three seasons ago we added a 4th OF which helped prevent the glut of good OFs sitting on the waiver wire.

Draft Date so far is Sunday, March 21st, at 6:00PM EST. I am super dumb and did the time zones wrong, my bad. The app currently says 7:00PM EST so we're going with that so no one shows up late.

I'm the Quebec Quarantaines and my team was not stacked. I'm returning to take out my revenge on a) all of you and b) the ESPN autodraft algorithm on which I lay all the blame for my last place finish. Just sent your way.

I didn't think last season was going to happen, I almost sent back everyone's dues like 3 different times during the course of 2020 when Manfred kept loving around.

Okay I think I'm just missing Lemon Scented Lysol Wipes checking in. I'm double checking my emails. ESPN's email thing is super buggy and sometimes sends stuff to spam.

I'm in for a ...9th season? Goddamn. Still love this league. I was Canada Dry. Sent my money just now.

Made some mistakes on my keepers last year so my team isn't quite the powerhouse its been in the past. Gotta crush the draft

Does anyone know who Lemon Scented Lysol Wipes is? I cannot remember which user that was, and I cannot look at my PMs from prior seasons because I got banned for toxxing for Bernie Sanders

Also I for sure have one team open, the guy running Manny Gonna Manny is not returning.

Off the top of my head we did

Japan and Netherlands the first year
Cuba
Korea
Mexico
Australia
Dominican Republic
Canada

There are like zero baseball countries left. Venezuela, Taiwan has a league. I think that's it.

No I was thinking the same thing, I am going to put a poll up. Puerto Rico is not popular no one can think of a good team name it seems.

The OP says the draft time is 6 PM Eastern, but the ESPN app says it is at 7 PM eastern?

Either way I am hosed, I thought it was at 6 PM Pacific. I am at my nephews birthday and will, at best, be distracted/phone-drafting.

The guy who has Algonquin Tribe has not selected keepers yet. I will select them for him based upon ADP if they do not in the next 20 minutes or so. That'd be Freeman, Jose Ramirez, and either Guerrero Jr or Woodruff.

Man, phone drafting is intense. Frantically switching between the ESPN app and Excel 5 times in 60 seconds definitely makes it exciting. And the user interface of Excel for iPhone makes absolutely no sense. But hey, I missed the draft altogether last year so if this trend continues, I might use an actual computer next year!

I am glad you made it and I was figuring that was what you were doing, it kept giving a message that you'd leave and reenter the draft.

I don't know why I get so hung up on relievers. Always way too many on my roster and then I can't compete in broad categories like Wins and K's.
