    Looking for Old School Roto Junkies for a free, fun auction redraft on ESPN

    Introducing The Blum Apricot Meatloaf League (hat tip to BigJonEmpire for the name), this league is the result of a semi-hijack of the New York Mets thread in the main forum. Looking for a bunch of old-school RJ guys for a league just for fun. I have set one up on ESPN. I have set it as a 16-team mixed league, but will adjust based on interest. Since the idea is old school, I have made it the traditional rosters (2 C, standard other positions with 9 pitchers). Since the other idea is that it is just for fun and shits and giggles, I have made it redraft, weekly lineup changes, with the week starting Monday. Really, most settings are flexible to me if everyone wants something.

    I was going to set it as a password league with the password being the original proprietor of RJ and anyone who knew it could get in, but it appears that ESPN does not have that setting. Accordingly, I'll just need anyone interested to send me a private message with their e-mail so I can invite you.

    My initial inclination is an auction of the March 17-18 weekend because my local league draft weekend is the 24th-25th, but that can be modified as well; if we need to do a weeknight, a snake draft might be necessary to get it all done at a reasonable time, but ESPN's auctions are usually reasonable with the time.

    Any thoughts, suggestions, etc., please post here. For joining, send me a private message.

    It's good to be back!

    So far, we have only five who have expressed interest. Anyone else? New school RJ'ers welcome, too.

    I can be in as long as the meatloaf part of the league name is changed to pot roast.

    Oh, geez, I did screw that up. It has been so long. I will change it.

    Possibly. Have to check the home calendar - weekends can be a bit dodgy.

    I haven't played in going on 8 years, but I might be willing to come back in the fray and know I'll probably end in the bottom 4th of the league.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    I am now more leaning to a weeknight; everybody has local/priority drafts and that kills all the relevant weekends.

    Sounds good! Shoot me your e-mail address, and I'll send you an invite.
