If you received a fantasy baseball invite via email, Facebook, Twitter or text/SMS to join a friend’s league, you must click the unique link on the invite to join that league. Please check your email or other messages for your invite to join the league. Contact your commissioner to resend the invite, if needed.
To create your LM league, you’ll need to choose your basic settings, including League Name, Scoring Type, Draft Type and Draft Date. You don’t have to put too much thought into them while creating your league, because you can change all of these settings at any time before your draft.
Create Standard Free: This is the simplest way to get started. You provide a League Name, League Motto, Restriction Type (which type of users are able to enter), whether it’s a Private or Public league, Scoring Type, Draft Type and Draft Date. We take care of the rest. The limits here are that your league must have 10 players, the commissioner can’t customize your settings, the draft must be online, and your league won’t include keepers or a league history. These leagues are eligible for the ESPN Fantasy Baseball leaderboard.

DeJong finished second to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger in National League Rookie of the Year voting last season.
The extension locks up DeJong past his arbitration-eligible years, which ran through 2020.
“It’s a first-class organization and exactly where I want to be long term,” DeJong said. “I think we’re all pretty happy about this.”
Over the past several years, the Cardinals have reached long-term deals with players just before the start of the regular season, including Stephen Piscotty, Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter and Kolten Wong.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch first reported DeJong’s extension agreement. FanRag Sports first reported the terms of the deal.
