    But I think I'll have to go with PGML. I really like the free agent setup, and it doesn't hurt that I have a recently retired 500 game winner in that league.
    I have heard good things about PGML, that its run exceptionally well by Doughboy, and i believe there are openings here

    Re: What are your favorite leagues?

    CWS here, too. My team has been one of the perennial powerhouses (made playoffs all but 3 times, never a losing record), but I'm experiencing my first bad team after several years of rotten recruiting luck. The best thing about it is that every team has a shot at every player, and the incentive for winning is extra recruiting power. There is absolutely nothing to gain from losing, so there are no tankers. The only downside is how dependent on a very busy Miroku we are, but someday he will share the secrets of the recruiting spreadsheet and get some help, lol.

    I also like BD, because I'm a founding member and the all time wins leader.

    I like TML, because it's one of the only leagues where I've managed to maintain sustainable winning teams without a true rebuilding period. And I won my first ever WS title there.

    Favorite former league is PTTP, which died due to lack of owners, primarily because of lack of commissioner help. In that league, half the league are MLB teams, and the other half are minor league teams. Two owners team up, one running the MLB unit and one running the minor league unit with a goal of keeping the MLB team on top. The MLB manager decides on the franchise needs, and the minor league manager drafts and trades accordingly. The MLB team has only an active roster, no AAA or LM. The MLB team also has no scouting, the minor league manager takes care of that, too. Draft slots are determined by a combination of MLB and minor league records (Winning in the minors hurts your draft slot, because it means you have too much talent that needs to be called up, but at the same time, you are trying to win the minor league title). There were also rule 5 drafts where a MLB team could take a player from a minor league team, and a declared 40 man roster across the franchise that was excluded from rule 5.

    Another favorite former league is RTTB. Kind of a cross between PTTP and CWS. Half college teams where players graduate, and then are drafted by the MLB half.

    Re: What are your favorite leagues?

    I like TML mostly because it’s the first League I joined and my first WS.
    BD is good but the 75 Cap has its pros/cons for an potential owners.
    WBC is probably my favorite at the moment but I am in the lowest level for salary and it has been a lot of trial and error and I have not found a strategy that has brought me sustained success yet.

    Re: What are your favorite leagues?

    This thread is where it's at. I'm glad you guys posted this. There are so many leagues on this site and I'm trying to find unique ones. While traditional leagues are great, I've recently been in the market to join a more complicated league. I'm probably going to ask to join PGML soon and am checking everyday for an opening in CWS. A few traditional type leagues mixed in with unique leagues is what I think every owner should try out. Just joined ACL and like the hard cap idea. As somebody who did this casually the first 3 months of joining CSFBL and now am becoming very active, I can see the benefits of 4/day and 8/day. Just having 4 teams where 2 are 8/day makes me mix up my players in my head. 8/day is great if you're hardcore, but 4/day is alot more reasonable for people that can't be on the site everyday for months on end. Keep these recommendations coming because, as a new member, it's a helpful guide. My only request is being able to rename players or giving nicknames. Why can't everyone do it? Is it because the leagues go on for so long so you don't want 16 Barry Bonds in the record books? CSFBL runs out of randomly generated names it seems. I've got a Carroll in every league

    Re: What are your favorite leagues?

    Most leagues will let you request renames. Some hav strict rules about it, but an active commish will usually let you know whats up. I also need to update the list on the first post haha. Ill also pm you next time an owner drops CWS

    Re: What are your favorite leagues?

    America's Pastime allows renames of lower minor players with the approval of one of the commishs which keeps people from "bad" renames (we'd allow Joe Jackson or Pete Rose, but not Adolph Hitler, nor any current political leaders such as Trump or Clinton). We're a 4 a day league with two openings. We don't do a live draft, but the draft list will be out at noon. Love to have you.
