Our final pool of $ was $928.50 if everyone paid up. Obviously, Boggs and WA did not pay dues in full as they were in championship bracket- so taking that out we have $727.50 to divide up. My paypal account is at $692.50 for whatever reason. I am guessing that includes fees and that BS.
So- 50% of $692.50 is $346.25- that goes to our champion Whurlitzer's Arm.
35% of 692.50 is $242- that goes to runner-up Wade Boggs
15% of 692.50 is $104- that goes to 3rd place finisher Do tell Dotel

* Designates players has achieved 150 ABs or 45 IP and must be added to owners 24 man roster in 2011 draft or become an unrestricted free agent.
OK guys, with fantasy football over and the hockey season at the mid-point, it is time to start thinking of the fantasy baseball season. Spring training is about 6 weeks away and it is never too early to start prepping for what is a competitive draft in a competitive league.
By Feb 17 I will need a list of your 7 "soft" keepers. You can make changes to that list of 7 if you NEED TO because of injury or demotion, but please try not to wait until the last minute to make a change. Last year two teams tried to make changes the day of the draft. That is not cool to those of us that put the time in and did many mock drafts to prepare.With that in mind, no changes made to your keepers 48 hours prior to the draft period (unless player is out for year).
In addition, these 3 players went over 150 ABS or 45 IP, which means they must be added to their owner's roster or be in the FA pool for Week #1 of bids:
Mike Moustakas- Blue Ballers
Ben Revere- YAZ
Tyler Chatwood- Trucknutz
Here is the draft order followed by the traded picks.
1) Bruce Bochte
2) Alphalpha Sprouts
3) Gramercy Rifts
5) Felix Mantila
6) Blue Ballers
7) Do Tell Dotel
8) Captain Laddie
9) Wade Boggs
10) Billy Martin
11) Whurlitzer's Arm
Dotel has Wade Bogg's 3rd round pick (Alex Gordon trade)
Dotel has Blue Ballers 5th round pick (Chone Figgins trade)
Our draft starts in the 8th round technically, once keepers are assigned, and we have a 24 man roster. Once the Astros move into the AL in 2013, if you want a 25 man roster, we can do that.
Last but not least, I say that the winner of the consolation bracket will no longer be winning money, since they no have the first pick in the draft. I am for allocating that money to the third place finisher.
Any questions or concerns shoot me an e-mail or comment on the blog.
Presented each year to the league champion- ours has a Natural Light can!
What the hell is this?
This is a damn complex league. I figured we needed a way to keep track of things in the off-season or to referr to in-season for things like minor league rosters, review of rules, or to have more discussions and trash talk.
Major League Rules
Kelly Leak (of Bad News Bears fame) League is a 7X7 AL only head-to-head keeper league that was started in 2005. It runs on Yahoo premium league. Dues have been $25 per team, though that is subject to change with league approval. The $25 goes to prizes for end of the year, ye ol Commish has been sporting the cost of the Premium League.
Teams consist of a 24-man roster at the major league level and a 6-man minor league roster.
Teams field 1 LF, 1 CF, 1 RF, 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 2B, 1 1B, 1C and 1 DH. Pitching staffs have to contain 4 SPs. The 11 remaining spots are determined at the discretion of the team’s owner. In addition, 3 DL spots may be used.
