WSBGM's Phantasy League 3

Spring training is here and aside from the saga of A-Rod and his roids, the massive burden Manny carries as being a member of the unemployment line, and watching 87 players suit up for your favorites team, it also means WSBGM's Phantasy League makes its triumphant return for season #3. We're switching things up a bit this year, as it will not be 20 teams again (that was ri-freakin-diculous) or be classic rotisserie scoring. Instead, we're going to a 16 team league that will be head-to-head competition that rotates on a weekly basis, with a 4 team playoff near season's end. There are 14 open slots, so start emailing us now to reserve a spot on the roster (click on "Contact Us" in the upper lefthand sidebar). The league is through Yahoo and the draft will take place on a weekend sometime in late March.

Tid-Bits:
*You'd think a man that recently just signed a 1 year $2M contract wouldn't have difficulties making ends meet, but that is the case for Scott Eyre. His funds are frozen due the the governments investigation of the Stanford Financial Group's supposed financial fraud scheme. Other MLB players effected by this include Johnny Damon, Carlos Pena, and Xavier Nady.

*Harry Kalas is on the preseason DL, but he should be back in plenty of time for the regular season set to start on April 5th in Philly. The soon to be 73 year old recently had an undisclosed medical procedure, but seems to be recovering well. Thank God, because I'm not sure if I could have taken a game called only by Sarge, Wheels, and T-Mac.

*I do not have the MLB Network yet, but dammit this latest news may just force my hand...the Phils bullpen is getting their own reality tv show set to debut on the network June 1st appropriately called "The Pen". Can't wait to see Ryan Madson doing magic tricks, Clay Condrey spitting tobacco, and Brad Lidge stinking people out with lethal doses of gas.

Are we taking a collection for Eyre? If so I have an extra ticket to the July 7th game this year he can have.

GM-Carson said...

So of my former fantasy league team names: One-Nut-Krunk, EatonLoveFest '08, Urbina's Alibi, Phillies Phreak, and Knob Chuck's Blauch.

Bob D said...

What will it be this year? Romero's Roids, Adam Bomb, So Long Taguchi???? Hmmmm many possibilities.

I would join, but I am already in one and its harder to juggle multiple teams.

GM-Carson said...

This year's team name is- Hoochie Cooches.

Mr. A-Hole said...
