The concept behind Flags Fly Forever is that we will aim to cover fewer topics in greater detail than your average fantasy podcast–generally four to five per episode. We hope you enjoy our debutante ball, so to speak, and if you have suggestions for future topics, you can e-mail us at the link below.

This week's topics:

00:01 – 02:55 – Hello!
02:56 – 14:17 – Balancing Real-Life Value in Fantasy Games
14:18 – 21:00 – Catchers: The Truth About Scarcity
21:01 – 34:00 – Catchers: Those Who Don't Catch
34:01 – 44:50 – Catchers: What We Learned in 2013
44:51 – 51:53 – Goodbye!

And everything you need to listen and enjoy is below this line that I'm typing right now:

I've been playing in a realistic stats fantasy league for 16 years now, and it's really not as confusing as you fear: For hitters, walks/hits/XBH good, outs bad; For pitchers, IP/SO good, Runs/BB bad. We use a points formula instead of categories, so that probably helps. We're also not as hands-on as you and most listeners are: lineups every two weeks; instead of a weekly waiver wire, two supplemental drafts at 2 and 4 months into the season.

It actually works really well. I'd be happy to pass along our rules if there's interest.
I can't speak for Bret or Mauricio, but for me it's not that it's confusing but I suspect I wouldn't enjoy it as much. Don't knock it until you tried it and all that, of course...

Also, your format doesn't sound as convoluted as some of the formats I had in mind.
