since people are complaining i'm offering a poll (now in my first post in this thread) between h2h and roto. whichever wins will be the format we will use in the league this year,

NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

roto is preferred, always and forever. Best person wins, over the course of a season. No softballs, no facing weak/dead teams and getting an easy win.

H2H is waaay too random - some goofball with a terrible team has a good week and you lose 0-10 to him. Try to catch a guy in the standings, but you can't, cuz you are facing real teams and he is facing teams with 4 guys on the DL from dudes that haven't logged in in 3 months.

roto is baseball. H2H is flag football. I'm not here to play football.


This. H2H is preferred for football but Roto is the way we've always gone for baseball and I don't see any reason to change that.

Well, H2H, if nobody comes back, we will get H2H as there are only 8 people.

There are websites that allow for head to head with rotisserie scoring.

Best way to keep people active in a fantasy league is of course to get money involved.

Ill put money down on any fantasy baseball league

But with H2H being largely luck fueled and random more than skill based, I would cap any money risk waaaay lower

I'm taking home the crown either way.
Thought that you all might want to buy old Dusty a few beers along the way.

This is true. I still check in from time to time. I'm not really an active part of the forum anymore though

Regarding fantasy, you're gonna need a new league. ESPN doesn't let me remove myself from the league since I'm the creator.

Are you saying it's wrong to talk to a bag of Skittles? Because if so, I'm going to need to rethink a lot of things. :P

I voted for roto.
But however we do it I would like to see weekly lineups rather than daily.

I think this should be a question for another poll. I've done both and it's certainly a different experience both ways -- it's definitely frustrating though if you forget to set your lineup + are therefore stuck with it for a whole week

For another poll, indeed.
It does suck to not set your lineup.
But it also sucks to have to set lineups every single day.
Or at least it will for me, because in June July August that simply will not be happening.
