    A couple questions to start things off - who all is interested in having an Arena Fantasy Baseball league? And two, if you're interested, what times work for you for a live draft (via yahoo)?

    I'll set up the league once we have a general idea of when to do the draft. We can try to do a draft on here, but we'll have to go really quick if we want to have it ready for the start of the season (only 8 days from now). Thus, I think a live draft is probably better, unless enough other people want to do it on here.

    I'm definitely interested. Any time after about 4 P.M board time works for me except Friday this next week.

    I'm interested, but given my schedule, I probably won't be available for a live draft.

    Even if we do have a live draft, you should be able to set up priorities beforehand that will let the computer draft for you based on what you tell it. Not as good as actually being present at the computer, but something, certainly.

    I think Opening Day is some time next week, so we'd have to get this going quickly.

    It might be a bit tight, but I think I can do that.

    League created!

    League Name: Arena Fantasy Baseball
    Password: jcarena

    Live draft is Wednesday at 9 pm EST / 6 pm board time. You should be able to set preferences if you can't be online then. I added a couple extra spots to the roster since it looks like we won't have too many players.

    (up to 12 spots available right now, if we have more before the draft, I believe I can expand it)

    Strange things have been known to happen in fantasy sports.

    I'm going to have to rely on autodraft for my picks more than likely but I love fantasy baseball.

    Less than 8 hours until the draft... come on, people sign up! Especially those of you who said they were interested but haven't signed up yet :p

    I've been in a 5-person fantasy league before... its small, but it still works. Though one could argue that a league with fewer people should have to draft several more players.

    I'm in, since you need some players. I'll probably have to autodraft and I probably won't be any good. But it should be fun.:p

    The league needs at least one more team in order for the draft to take place tonight...

    I PMed Jedi_Johnson and Jedi_Hood, and both have read the PM... but neither has signed up yet.

    And given that I've been in a 5-person yahoo league before, I'm pretty sure the system will still work. It also makes your team look better even when it isn't, compared to everyone else :p

    Though if we don't get at least a couple more people, I may see if I can add a few more drafting spots. Unless anyone has any objections to that, at least.
