It's about that time.....
Fantasy season is upon us. Who doesn't love it? It gives you a damn good reason to pour over the boxscores every morning guilt free. The only down side - if you can even call it that - is that the baseball season is very long compared to other sports and some managers tend to lose interest which in turn ruins the league for everyone. That and the obvious "help your buddy out" one sided trades.
A while back, my buddy at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum called me and made it known that he was interested in starting up a fantasy pool. I told him two things. One: keep it cheap and simple. Two: offer unique prizes.
That phone call was over 4 years ago.
Please take a moment and check out the 2011 edition. It's only 10 bucks to join and this years first prize is pretty kick ass. The thing I like most about this pool is the near zero maintenance. Simply pick your players and wait for the e-mail updates every week.
Just for fun, I had my guy go over the results from the previous years pools. Check out the head to head results. Even with the shit stain I put up last year, I am still ahead and I'm hungry for another top 5 finish in 2011.
