I did very good this year. I sent it out as soon as I said I would. I was, however, forced to send it earlier because of March Madness but I was on time this season.

And I hope to be able to do it for football but it doesn't look promising. I don't find the appeal in those daily leagues that ManRam was talking about. I liked it over at fanduel for a little bit but it just got too annoying for me. But then again...my favorite part of fantasy sports is the managing of the league with trades, free agent pickups, etc.

The sound of a baseball hitting my brick hands as it fell to the ground only to have someone else pick it up . That was back before my stick ball days. Now i would vacuum that garbage up.

 Yea...it's easy to say "oh, I coulda got that" when you weren't in the situation. But like you said...that was a while ago. I wonder how you'd hand a laser line drive homer (it wasn't really a laser...but at the time...it seemed like it).

I caught a shirt at RAW once. It was right after they changed it from WWF to WWE. The shirt said "I do it till I'm RAW" (needless to say it was pre-PG era). I was sitting in the 200 sections but in the first row. The cannon shot it up to the end of the 100 sections and it bounced off a few rows there and came at me and I leaned over the rail in a full stretch and made the catch as everyone is running to it through the isle in front of me. But this basketball catch topped that for sure. It took me a while before I realized how cool it was because I was texting me friend the picture of my seats. Then I realized...hey...I caught the ball.

At the same game with Cantu i was sitting there watching BP. Whoever was batting hit an ABSOLUTE FROZEN ROPE foul down the first base line towards the top of the lower section. Standing there was about a 250 pound bahemoth of a woman. She took it right off her left tit like it was nothing. Just brushed it off and kept going. Remember it like it was yesterday. Couldnt believe what i saw .

WOW. I can't miss this damn draft. After doing the pre-ranking thing...I realized that I'll hate my team afterwards. It would be full of guys I stretch for.

Philly i have no idea. Maybe join a mock and import your ranks into there and see if it works? I have never pre ranked my players before.

I should be here but there's a small chance I won't be. It'll probably be better if I weren't, though, considering drafting has never been my forte. I have like 3 guys left from the draft by the midway mark anyway.

I usually manage two teams (1 H2H and 1 roto) so didn't really need an extra team.  My roto league dropped so only H2H this year but I'm good with only having 1  team.  

Tied last year in the finals but lost 2nd tie breaker and won the year before so looking forward to another big season.  Just had our draft friday night.

I need a big day today!!  

I made a couple bad coaching decisions last week against Manram that could cost me a spot in the playoffs.  My team is playing good lately but had a tough schedule down the stretch.

^ JW, howd u do in fridays draft for baseball?

i made a huge mistake trading Josh Smith and Nash earlier in the year when i loved my team. Smith was struggling bigtime and i jumped the gun and traded him, had i not i think id be in a much better place...   live and learn though, ive only been doing Fantasy Sports since 2010  so im still a "Rookie" at it..

C - Molina
1B - Votto
2B - Cuddyer (1B, OF)
SS - Castro
3B - Lawrie
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Stanton
OF - Morse (1B)
U - Gardner
BN - Walker 2B
BN - Melky OF

SP - Ricky Romero
SP - Bumgarner
SP - Fister
RP - League
P - Farnsworth
P - Thornton
P - Capps
BN - Francisco
