Let's Try This Blog-Thing Again!

Just like riding a bicycle. You never really forget how. There is a different dynamic to drafting live (i.e. actually in the room with other people…nothing online should ever be described as “live”…). Watching the faces, cutting jokes, screwing up in front of your friends/competitors, and watching a...

Re: The MTM Vegas Party & Midnight Madness Draft are Back for 2021!

Once again it will be up to me to add Southern charm, ellegance, class, distinction and above all modesty to the the cold barren desert.

Can't wait (won't draft because I won't be able to stay awake).

Re: Mike Massotto Wins NY Super League Title & $20,000

Mike should (and probably will) have the last word, but I could not resist adding my congratulations. I am sure it was hard fought but if anyone of us deserved a win like this, it would be you.

A Little Secret!

While we were waiting, wondering if we were EVER gonna get baseball, I found something in my basement. Stuck in the corner was an old bag that I used to haul around my bats, gloves, etc. In the bag was one, left shoe from a pair of cleats. It was kinda muddy and I did not recognize it. To see if I c...

What penalty would Commissioner Ambrosius levy on Alex C*ntron? Before you answer, look at how many times I own mother defending, hero of our times, Ramon Laureano. Well for being a big man with his mouth and then scurrying behind three other players when Laureano came over to fight, I'd first star...

Re: 2020 and 2.7

Thsnks, Dan! An embarrasment of riches. In my three drafts, I have a #3 and two #1's. I will have Acuna in at least one, but have to think about maybe Yelich or Betts for one to "diversify"....good problem to have! https://64.media.tumblr.com/9b47aa1db1b4fa50f95aad319c4bddae/tumblr_ndm70l1ikL1s0y84k...

Re: 510+ Teams Now For The 2020 NFBC Sprint Main Event

Amazing. In such a short time. Not blowing smoke up your skirt, but when MLB finally announced the "sprint" season, I thought you would be lucky to get 405 or 420 signups.

Congratulations!

Re: 2020 and 2.7

But the good news, Dan, is that we get to go head-to-head again (8:00 pm ET on the 23rd). Of course, there are some other no-names in the league like Schroter, Smith, Butler, Schechter, Waggener, Childs/Ferrari and Cha (who I already have in two of my three leagues...yeah!!!). Gonna be interesting.....
