- Welcome to Benchwarmer Baseball - It's a different
form of fantasy baseball as we play individual head-to-head
games simulated from daily MLB stats - this isn't a Rotisserie
- This is fantasy baseball 365 days a year. Teams are now starting preparations to get their teams ready for the regular season - they just completed picking up to 28 players to keep on their rosters and now are prepping for the Redistribution Draft of available free agents - that's an annual draft held with advantages for teams who finished at the bottom last season.
- Check out the Benchwarmer Baseball Tour for an introduction.
16-team leagues are now forming for
2016. But, if you'd
like to attempt to turn around a struggling team,
these orphan teams
are available...pick up an existing team and rebuild it,
rather than start from scratch.
- If you're a first-time owner, you play under the "rookie rate" of $35 for your first team (normal price, $65)
- Orphan teams are also just $35 - about 1/2 the normal price.
- If you're interested, your first step is to sign up here. Then go ahead and pick out a new league or check out the orphan list again.
- Are you already a BWB team owner and want to add teams? Check first to see if you have an available bonus team from 2015 or else add new teams here. Email us if you want an orphan team and we'll set you up.
- Redistribution Draft - modified lists
for Rounds 2-5: Deadline is Sunday night 2/14 at midnight EST.
- Check all your picks/errors
- You don't have to make changes - but it's an opportunity to readjust your list and add more players to get you more chances to fill your roster.
