This league is different than the other two because it uses Autopick draft. This takes the least time. Also, I don't want any more than 10 teams. Otherwise, the talent gets too thin and there is too much to keep track off. So far there are only 2 teams signed up.

League Name: SDMB3
Maximum Number of Teams: 10
Maximum Players on a Team: 24

Only two teams so far. Plenty of room for anyone to join. Step right up.
For those who don’t want the trouble of a draft, there’s also the league I’ve started at espn.com.
Not trying to delve into your prospective pool of dopers, curious george. Just showing folks the alternatives. Hope you don’t mind:)
I believe I’m that other team, george.
Hey, if no one else signs up, we’ll both have awesome lineups!
BTW, I joined an additional Yahoo league just in case this one didn’t fill up, and in our non-auto draft I got… ta-da! Alex Rodriguez! Boooooo-ya!
Yahoo says there are only 2 days left to enter. Anyone else want to join?
We have 3 teams now. However, yahoo won’t let me change the Draft Status to ready until we get at least 4 teams.
All we need is one more team.
OK, I’m in. Watch for the Strikeout Kings at the bottom of your standings…
OK we are ready to draft. Yahoo says “your autopick draft will be completed sometime between now and Friday, April 6 at 11:59 pm PT”. Any further messages from me will be posted at our league message board, not here.
We will miss the first week of the season, but player stats are usually strange then anyway.
Play ball! Our teams are drafted. At 1B I got Delgado, Giambi, and McGwire! Also, I got 3 Yankee SP’s, that I am looking to get rid of.
