I’ve decided to play fantasy baseball this season – it will be the first time I have played any fantasy sports games in a number of years after getting bored with them during the initial explosion of online fantasy sports sites. A friend of mine, Greg Nicolai, announced on Facebook that he was looking to start a league and for those interested to contact him. It sounded good and so decided to give it a go, again.
When I first started playing fantasy football and fantasy baseball I was consistently winning my leagues and the sites were in their early stages of development – very basic and the games actually required a lot of web browsing and time to research players, etc. The time I was putting in was a lot, the reward was essentially zero and the challenge was minimal. I think it was a combination of the early websites lacking features and time saving elements and a lot of players who weren’t yet very strong at fantasy sports, yet. So I’m hoping this venture poses a nice challenge and that it’s fun to interact with at least a couple people who I might actually know.
The league is a Yahoo Fantasy Baseball league, a site I have not used before so I don’t know what to expect – and I like that. I need a little of not knowing what to expect in my life, these days… I think. Greg has entitled the league “The Show”, so I guess I have to say that I hope to one day make the show! The draft is coming up quick, so I’ll have to let you know how I do.
