So, Over to Egypt

March 26th, 2019 · No Comments · Egypt, Fantasy Baseball, London, tourism, Travel

Most people do not really want to be known for hare-brained schemes, but eventually a body of work cannot be defended from the reality of bunny-level planning. (Raising my hand.) This began a month ago, thereabouts. A long time ago, when it comes to groceries, no time at all when it involves international travel. It […]

Your Drafted Team Versus Your Chosen Team

August 20th, 2015 · No Comments · Baseball, Basketball, Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball, Football, NBA, soccer

A topic that comes up, eventually, with everyone who plays fantasy baseball or football or basketball or soccer … When a player from your fantasy team meets up with someone from the team you support … to which side do you focus your psychic energy? Or, making it simple, whom do you want to come […]

Fantasy Baseball!

April 3rd, 2015 · No Comments · Abu Dhabi, Baseball, Fantasy Baseball

I know. I know. I could hardly put up a headline worse than that, in terms of enticing people to read. “Don’t read this” would do far, far better. But this won’t take long. And you some tiny fraction of you might find it interesting to see who went in the first round of one […]

The 5:30 a.m. Fantasy Draft

March 29th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Abu Dhabi, Baseball, Fantasy Baseball, UAE

I should get some sort of award for this. Or, better, a reward. An extra 10 RBI the first week. An extra home run for each of the next 26 weeks. I could cite biorhythm studies here, but I most certainly was at a huge disadvantage when the Sun Baseball League conducted its 33rd draft […]

Out on the Dodgers

April 11th, 2012 · No Comments · Abu Dhabi, Baseball, Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball

This was how it was supposed to work: That weasel Frank McCourt would sell the Dodgers and I would immediately resume a powerful interest in the club. I would again know the identities of every man on the roster, with opinions on all of them, and my moods could be least be slightly brightened or […]

A Really Bad Idea: Betting on Fantasy Ball

July 15th, 2011 · No Comments · Baseball, Fantasy Baseball

I have no control over the ads that pop up on my blog. I don’t even get paid for them; some problem with me not having updated my account. And even if I were linked correctly I’d get, like, $100 for every thousand hits on the ads. I don’t do this for the money, clearly. […]

Eating Like Pujols

July 10th, 2009 · 4 Comments · Baseball, Fantasy Baseball

I’m in St. Louis for a wedding (no, not my own), and I wonder if it can get any better than this: Sitting in Pujols 5, a grill/restaurant in Westport Plaza, just a few feet outside the front door of my hotel, eating the “Albert’s Favorite Salad” and watching Albert Pujols, star of my first-place […]

Draft Night, 2009: Yes, Another Fantasy Baseball Post

April 3rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · Angels, Baseball, Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball, Lists

We had the 28th annual Sun Baseball League draft the other night. And before I go any further, I am reminded of a comment I overheard while covering the 2006 Winter Olympics at Turin — and may even have had on this blog somewhere, sometimes. I’m not exactly sure who said this, but I believe […]

I Miss Baseball’s Regular Season

October 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Angels, Baseball, Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball

And it just ended. Already I’m feeling it. Even with four rounds of playoffs going on. I like baseball’s long season. As a fan. Not as a reporter or sports editor. Several upsides to it.

Time for Andruw Jones to Turn It On

July 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball

This barking hound, the first outfielder I took in our fantasy league draft … with the 54th (!) pick overall … probably will suddenly find his stroke now? Why? Because I just dumped Andruw Jones off my team. So he can continue to screw with my mind … by going on a homer binge.
