    Cubs released Robinson Lopez.

    I got to see him pitch against Kane County 2 years ago, and while he was throwing heat, it didn't look like he had any movement on his pitches that day, he was getting line drives drilled all over the park.

    League's full. To bad! I might just do a second league and call it Cubs Den II.

  • Full. What a bummer. Tell me if Cubs Den II happens, I'll join that.

  • There should be a Loxas league and an Arguello league

  • Didn't take long to fill up, did it? If I had gotten off work a little earlier I may have been able to join!!! grrrrrrrrr........

  • In reply to Larry H:

    It actually let me put in the ID and password and create a team (so it still wasn't full) but by the time I hit Register, it was. That close.

  • Did someone say Fantasy League? Bring it on John! :)

    Call me the eternal optimist but mark my words the Cubbies will win 83+ games this season, I have a shiny 50 cent piece to wager on it for real. So ask yourself this question, do you feel lucky little man? haha.

    Looking forward to the fantasy league John, let me know when your heading to ST I'll meet you there. The first couple of rounds are on me :)

  • grrrrrrr someone please start another league

  • I tried about 10 minutes after the Tweet went out, so I probably wasn't even close. Too bad...it's hard to find leagues with people who actually want to play. Seems like every public league I join ends up with four people playing and eight teams who don't set their lineup after April.

  • Ditto on missing out on the chance to register.

  • I set up a reject league on Yahoo if anyone else wants to play...

  • In reply to North Side Irish:

    LOL...this seriously made me spit out my drink.

    We can have that as a second league. If you need people I can join it too.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    Sorry for making you spray your keyboard. You are welcome to join of course...might make things seem more official. Though I am going to have to ask that you refer to yourself in the 3rd person for league purposes.

  • In reply to North Side Irish:

    Haha...I'll see if you're league fills up. If you need someone let me know. I'll keep track of all leagues on this site. We'll update leaders every Sunday.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    Ok I'm in...as Arguello for third person purposes..but I'll probably change that later ;)

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    Nice...thanks for joining. There is some flexibility on the 3rd person thing, but I do get make your first round pick for you.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    Damn , I was not fast enough...:( See what happens when I skip the site for a couple of hours...LOL

    There must be a lot more readers than posters.

  • In reply to Just Win:

    Very much so. Commenters are a small percentage of total readers.

  • Let me guys know if you want to start a second league or if a reader/commenter league works...

  • fb_avatar

    Sorry all, I think I must have been last one registered. Snuck in by a 100th of a second apparently ....

    Cubs Den II is now set up.

    There is a live online draft set tentatively for Sunday, March 11 at 2PM EST.

  • In reply to Michael Caldwell:

    Thanks just joined!

  • In reply to Michael Caldwell:

    Just joined. I am RoidRageManiacs. Looking forward to a great year of both Cubs baseball and fantasy baseball.

  • Anyone who has started a league...let me know and we'll track all of them on this site. Commissioners can send me a weekly update.

    i set up another league on yahoo

    the league name is CubsDen2
    the password is arguello.

    It will be an auction draft held this Friday night at 8:30 online. A little more strategy involved than your typical draft if you've never tried it!

    I have set the max innings pitched for 1250 innings so you can't gain an advantage by continually switching pitchers. This way you can compete without necessarily checking every day.

    I have set offensive categories as
    avg, net sb, runs, rbis, homers, total bases, and walks

    pitching categories
    wins, holds, net saves, whip, era, strikeouts.

    Also I have set max acquisitions at 50 for the year so you need to draft wisely.

  • fb_avatar

    do we have a running tally of which leagues are full and not full?

  • In reply to Nate Hummel:

    I've got 8 teams so far...4 spots left.

  • i registered to both, i might delete one depending on the turn out, thanks gentleman

  • fb_avatar

    Also you get 4 of's 1 extra MI, and 1 extra CI. as well as 8 pitchers- 2 starters, 2 relievers, and 4 of any kind. Only 2 spots for bench and 1 dl. Also I set it up for a max of 16 teams so it will be a little deeper league where you will need to dig a little bit towards the end of the draft. Makes for fun chances to draft up and comers!

  • In reply to Gary Kueper:

    For comparison's sake, my league also has 4 OFs, CI, MI and same pitcher counts. 5x5 roto league using OBP instead of BA. 12 teams, 5 bench spots. Little smaller league, little deeper benches.

  • fb_avatar

    also i forgot to say league ID is 53628

  • Just read that the yanks and Phil's are most interested in Soler! WTF

  • In reply to The Show:

    Don't believe everything you read and believe only half of what you see.

  • True!

  • Are any of these drafts on the weekend? I'm a second shifter and realized I signed up for a draft on fri night.

  • fb_avatar
    In reply to The Show:

    Cubs Den II is doing its draft on Sunday, March 11th at 2pm EST.

  • One more question, does anyone no if there is a way to participate in a draft with an iPhone?

  • fb_avatar

    I'd be interested in playing, but the last 3 summers I've been in a league and not had the time to change lineups. I wouldn't have wanted to take up the space on the league haha. I will probably join another at some point and forget about it half way through the summer once again.

  • In reply to Bill Newton:

    Understood. There's a couple of spots open in a couple of the leagues if you change your mind.

  • fb_avatar

    We need one more for Cubs Den II.

  • fb_avatar

    Guess I'm late to the show, but please let me know if any spots open up (email me at willqx4@yahoo.com) -- Thanks!

  • I would be interested in joining one, as well!

  • Are there any leagues still open?

  • Unfortunately, I think all leagues are full. Anyone out there still have a league with space??
