Fantasy Baseball is Here!

FbaseballWell I went and did it. I signed up for fantasy baseball, and I have no clue what’s going on…

After I failed to make the playoffs in football and basketball this year, and my March Madness bracket was completely demolished, I thought I’d try my hand at fantasy baseball. I’ve never played the fantasy version, so I didn’t really know what to expect. When I logged on a few days ago, I entered the draft for a league of 8 teams. The first thing I noticed was that the baseball version had much more styles of play to choose from. I’ve played in H2H leagues in football and basketball so far, so I figured this would be a safe bet. Also, the lineups are definitely different. In baseball you have 25 players. Since I didn’t really have any time to study, I just auto-drafted my team. Even then, I ended up with some really good names that I was able to recognize.

After Opening Day yesterday, my scores started flooding in, and honestly they looked pretty dismal. But then again, so did my opponent’s.

Anyway, it can’t get any worse this fantasy sports season. My brackets suck:
