Fantasy Doom and Gloom

May 2nd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Baseball, Fantasy Baseball

Is this how it works in all fantasy baseball leagues? Or does the venerable Sun Baseball League just happen to have a rare combination of two “glass-ain’t-just-half-empty … it’s-busted-and-shards-are-in-my-hand” owners who are deeply into the game … and like to share their pain? I’m guessing the latter. Though there may be more whiners and complainers […]

April 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Dodgers, Fantasy Baseball

I held the 54th pick of the 2008 Sun Baseball League (fantasy) draft. I already had A-Rod, Tulowitzki, Prince Fielder, and Papelbon. I wanted a slugger … and an outfielder. Already off the OF board: Matt Holliday (the No. 5 pick), Manny Ramirez (13), Ben Braun (17), Carl Crawford (18), Alfonso Soriano (20), Carlos Beltran […]

The baseball league I am part of, which is similar to Rotisserie ball — except better — conducts its 27th annual draft tonight. And everyone loves the draft — even […]

Baseball Fantasy: Time to Scrutinize Talent

March 12th, 2008 · No Comments · Fantasy Baseball

The month of March is critical for anyone involved in a baseball fantasy league. It’s during spring training that probable closers are identified, 3-4-5 starting pitchers decided on and batting orders are formulated. It’s also when lots of players show signs of impending weakness. And who among us hasn’t done his/her due diligence and gone […]
