YOU ARE INVITED: We welcome new competitors to join us for the fourth season of ALOTT5MA rotisserie baseball. For the first time, we will be forming two leagues instead of one and employing a relegation system.
Last season we had 16 teams in one massively competitive head-to-head league; 14 owners are returning for 2011. Depending on how many new owners we have, either the top 10 or top 12 finishers from 2010 will form the ALOTT5MA Premier League, with the remaining 2-4 plus all new entrants forming ALOTT5MAAAball, or whatever other name y'all decide. The top four finishers from that league will move up to the Premiership for 2012, with the bottom four finishers from the Premiership moving down to the other league. All of us are committed to making this work; no one's going to quit based on transferring leagues.
Each league will be free to form its own rules regarding draft format, player universe and scoring style, though the nature of the leagues mean that there will not be keepers. You need not be a well-traveled fantasy baseball player or a frequent commenter to join the league -- lurkers and novices are absolutely welcome. All we ask is that you commit to being active all season long.
If you're interested, please both indicate so here and shoot me an email with your contact info to throwingthingsblog -at- hotmail dot com. Adam C., J. Bowman and Dan Suitor have already won the coveted ALOTT5MAball fictional trophy; will you be next?
