Who's On First?

Anybody know anythiong about Fantasy Baseball and setting up a league?

I'm gonna start up blogging again in a couple of weeeks... around the start of baseball season. I was thinking about running a fantasy league. If you have any info or links that I could look at, ket me know.

Also, I'll be tracking a couple of teams all year... maybe one or two in each league... Texas Rangers (or maybe not) because I used to live about three miles from the stadium, although they have shit for pitching every year... you give me some of your favorite teams and I'll let you know what I think.

I'll also track some individual players: Albert Pujols, Todd Helton, A-Rod... Need some interesting pitchers... maybe Rocket Man, Schilling, Maddox on the way to 300, Pedro's ERA.

I also like to look at the all time stats and try to predict when someone might break a record and compare todays stars to those of yesteryear.

Anyway, someone give me some input and ideas for a league name.

See ya later...

Trackbacks to Who's On First?

I found a thingy over at MLB.com. I set up a free league with 11 teams. Any of you baseball fans out there want to play let me know. I'll be checking out the site and updating in another post as soon as I figure out what to do.

I also got a couple of ideas to use for some little contests to run over here.

Try to avoid anyone on the current Cubs roster. They usually don't get good until we trade them away.

Same with pitchers for the Texas Rangers... Kevin Brown being the foremost example... trade em away and they get World Series rings for the Marlins (Cook)... Or let their best playerrs get away and they get World Series rings for the Marlins (Pudge). Although Pudge is only in it for the money, he accidentally got a ring last year... he's always been saddled with the complaint that he couldn't handle pitchers very well or call a good game. Don't get me wrong - he is the finest defensive catcher that ever lived (IMO) with a rifle arm. Best pick off artiest ever.

I'm thinking maybe follow the Cardinals and one other team in the NL, the Yankees and one other theam in the NL. There are a lot of Cubs fans in the blogosphere already, so I don't know if covering them would be that informative, although it would be good for lively debates.
