2018 Votto is a Catcher
The seventh season of Votto is a Catcher is about to begin their Spring Training. Please see the first two posts of this thread for all relevant information.

ESPN Fantasy Baseball is currently undergoing their annual maintenance, so I will re-activate the league as soon as possible.

First and foremost, we need to establish who is returning for the 2018 season. All existing members have first priority. After that, former members and established TD fantasy posters. Of course, new owners are welcome to join if there is room.

League settings
Non-keeper roto auction
12-14 teams on ESPN (13 teams in 2017)
Daily FAAB runs at 10:00 am CT
5x5 categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, OPS and QS, K, ERA, WHIP, S
1,400 season-long IP limit
18 starters (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3x0F, 2xU, 4xP, 2xSP, 2xRP), 5 bench spots, and 2 DL slots

Entry fee and payout structure
The league entry fee is $100. The payout will be as follows (for 13 members): 1st = $800, 2nd = $400, and 3rd = $100.

2017 members - Who is returning?
1. Vick's Kennel Club IN
2. PSU2LSU - Nyjer Please IN
3. Mr. Cringleberry - Hingle McCringleberry IN
4. kd1036 - Tubby Terror Squad IN
5. crope28 - Trump This!
6. LooseCannon22282 IN
7. floridatigah IN

Are there any rule changes we need to discuss? Like previous years, I anticipate us drafting on a Sunday evening.

Yeah, figured we are not making any changes. Nothing passed last year. I think the settings are really good and any slight modifications are not game changers.

I do wish there was a way to end the season one week earlier. I will email ESPN about it.

Once ESPN completes maintenance, then I will email the entire league to finish the check-in process as well as adding potential new owners as we will go up to 14.

As far as rule changes, we should look at going from 2 to 3 DL slots. The 10-day DL created about 50% more DL stints in MLB 2017 (I think Eno Sarris did this research).

I am indifferent to adding a 3rd DL spot. I don't think it gives any manager an advantage so I won't argue against or for the rule change.
