You are now going to manage an MLB team. On Jan. 9th, the computer will actually pick your team for you (on Yahoo, we will actually have a live draft where on a certain day and time we will all go into a chat 'draft' room and pick our players. So, before Saturday, go here
and rank your players. Give the players you want more on your team the higher rank and you will have more a chance that player will be drafted to your team.
Once the season starts, once a week you will go in and set your lineup for the week, including your starting pitchers, etc. Hint: If someone is struggling or injured, bench them. You will have one spot for a DL player with the ability to call in a FA from the FA list.
As the players who are on your team do things in a real game (homer, basehit, a pitcher has a strikeout, etc) you will get points.... obviously the bigger the thing is the more points. You will get more points for a grand slam than a double.
There can be trading among the teams...
I like Yahoo much better, as you can edit your lineup everyday, but CBSsports deals with real time stats...yahoo is usually a day behind.
This is a real good way to keep up on players that are not in the NL or even on the Cubs.
The best way to learn is just do it and learn as you go. It's just for fun and you're not going to be out anything but the time you put into it.
