Despite yesterday's news regarding A-Whatever, I've been pretty excited this Winter for the upcoming baseball season. So much so that I'm thinking long and hard about running a Fantasy Baseball League for the first time since 2002.
A friend and I started our own fantasy league back before the ease of the Internet and CBS Sportsline. Way back in 1990 or 1991, I believe. We made up our own rules and our own scoring system, based on existing fantasy leagues. We didn't do Rotisserie rules and this new league I'm thinking about forming won't be Roto either. It will be fantasy point based. With lineups and everyting. We wanted to make it resemble the actual baseball season as much as possible. And Roto doesn't really allow that. Like a team would really traded Albert Pujols for Jose Reyes after the All-Star break just becuase they needed SB? Seriously.
Anyway, I want to gauge the interest of the bloggy world about joining the league. I would set up a new blog just for the league and it would be open to anyone who reads this blog or friends of those who do.
It's not going to be a simple "draft your team and then sit there" league. It will require weekly lineups, roster maintenance, active trading, waiver wire transactions and free agent signings. I also would prefer to do an Auction rather than a Draft, if I can find the online service that supports it. Auctions are fun!
So how about it?
Email me at babyburke at aol dot com if you are seriously interested in joining. Or you can just leave a comment. But what fun is that?
Oh, and in the latest on boobs...Yowza!
