FanDuel - WFBC

February 16, 2007

It's about that time of year: Yahoo has opened up registration for fantasy baseball. So it's probably a good time to get the Roto league going.

Am I gonna be really sorry if I do this?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 04:26 PM on February 16

I am down for fantasy baseball! If anyone wants to do the oddball stats league again, I'd be down for that as well (we selected the more obscure stats to track like putouts, triples, etc, instead of the RBI, Runs, HRs).

Im deff. in- I can be my chance to show I don't completely suck in fantasy sports :)

Yukon, how's the non-pregnancy prediction coming?

posted by yerfatma at 04:50 PM on February 16

I'm in. Yukon's pregnant again?

posted by jerseygirl at 04:54 PM on February 16

I don't know about this fantasy baseball thing. I signed up for one of these SpoFi leagues last year, and nobody showed up to the draft. I waited three pina coladas. Then I went home and stared out the window. You know, I don't think anybody ever really planned to go to that draft.

I'm in, too. No, lbb, you won't be sorry. It's great fun. And, it's not like it is a really, really unhealthy addiction.

I'm a whore for fantasy baseball. Count me in.

Yukon, how's the non-pregnancy prediction coming? Free and clear! Book it nooch. So I guess no one is owning up and creating the league? I will.

Roto's for suckers, h2h is where it's at.

posted by tron7 at 05:13 PM on February 16

Here's a link for roto registration League ID#: 27716 Password: lockerroom The link should take care of it though. All settings are exactly what we used last year and the draft is for the same weekend and time as last year. Current draft time: Saturday, March 10 - 11:45am EST

posted by YukonGold at 05:16 PM on February 16

Roto's for suckers, h2h is where it's at. Maybe start a second thread for that. I know there was a h2h league whose settings could be cloned from last year. I wasn't in it though.

posted by YukonGold at 05:17 PM on February 16

Yeah, I'm just kidding. I was in the h2h last but I may join the roto as well this year, I've never done one before.

posted by tron7 at 05:23 PM on February 16

Psst. Yukon. Are we doing that auction-style keeper league we tried last year? Because if we are, I don't want to commit to other leagues.

posted by The Crafty Sousepaw at 05:24 PM on February 16

Yes, I want to. We may have too many discussions going on here though. Separate thread once this dies down. Also, everyone who said yes last year will have dibs in my mind.

I'm in again too. Maybe keep moving up huh? (or not)

posted by chris2sy at 06:42 PM on February 16

I'd like to do it but jerseygirl's unquestioned dominance last year may have scared me away.

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 07:18 PM on February 16

Just last year? There's a longer history than just last year. 2003 - 1st 2004 - 1st 2005 - (not 1st) 2006 - 1st You can't stop jg. You can only hope to contain her.

posted by YukonGold at 07:39 PM on February 16

She should write a book.

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 08:14 PM on February 16

Just a shame we haven't been playing for money.

Just a shame we haven't been playing for money. Just think of all the dibs you could buy! ...and why haven't you signed up yet?

posted by YukonGold at 03:16 AM on February 17

Because we're waiting on the other league.

I've never had Dibs. I know, I know, sheltered life and whatnot.

w00t! Deadballers IV ready to mediocre the league again.

The assclowns are in again, and promise to be much more active than in the current fantasy basketball league.

posted by thatweirdguy2 at 10:17 AM on February 17

My Snarkobots will either win or be spiteful jerks in defeat! PS. I've got another league drafting next weekend if anyone wants more action, I've got some space.

The Honeynut Ichiros are in.

posted by jerseygirl at 12:11 PM on February 18

One spot left.

The Honeynut Ichiros are in. Oh, well then what's the friggin' point?

You can just hear the champagne bottles popping already

posted by YukonGold at 06:53 PM on February 18

I've entered as "The Walkoff IBB", after a two year absence from the league.

posted by grum@work at 08:25 PM on February 18

Before I sign up, I have to ask: what if you can't make it for the draft? I think I have to work on the mountain that day. I probably shouldn't bother, huh?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 07:48 AM on February 19

Yahoo will make your picks automatically if you can't attend. They have a ranked list of players which you can modify prior to the draft to your liking. There's always a few people who auto-draft.

Looks like we got ourselves a league now. Play ball!

posted by jerseygirl at 10:06 AM on February 19

Which means, enjoy these next few weeks before jersey takes the lead for good, sometime in the first week in April.

Oh my god.

posted by jerseygirl at 08:29 PM on February 19

Ack - fantasy hockey burns me out enough. I think I'm going to actually just be a casual fan for baseball this year. So - Matasuzaka - first round? Early second? Honeynut Ichiros? Fuck me - that is an awesome team name.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 10:01 AM on February 20

I almost went with Scrantonicity as a team name. If anyone wants to steal that, go for it. Just this weekend, I was wondering the same about Matsuzaka. A lot of new Asian players in this year's draft. I am so excited for baseball and getting my flower gardens started. Keeps me going everytime I am outside and almost slip, fall and die on the ice.

posted by jerseygirl at 10:26 AM on February 20

If you go with Scrantonicity, you should automatically get Ryan Howard.

I am so excited for baseball and getting my flower gardens started. Keeps me going everytime I am outside and almost slip, fall and die on the ice. I read this and laughed for about five straight minutes, I swear. There's a vicious rumor that it might get above freezing here tomorrow. I'll be in Boston, of course, where I hope the Frozen Slush of Death will have become slightly less deadly (it really was about the worst I've ever seen, and I lived in Boston for twelve years).

posted by lil_brown_bat at 11:33 AM on February 20

It's above freezing here today and tomorrow. But its just going to ice up overnight. Should be awesome morning commuting! ... as long as it melts slowly. Too much water runoff is going to end up in my basement... again.

posted by jerseygirl at 11:58 AM on February 20

I just threw a temper-tantrum in my driveway because of this crap. F-bombs echoing off my neighbors' houses. It was pretty pathetic. All I want is to be able to park without playing musical cars with the wifey... but noooo, not with this crap. It's above freezing here, but all it's doing is making the snow and ice (snice, or better yet, snit) bond with the asphalt. I've been through plenty of sleet and ice storms, but I've never dealt with anything this obnoxious in my life.

posted by SummersEve at 02:42 PM on February 20

Damn..."office" inspired names. Hadn't thought of that. btw, jg...I saw someone on a fantasy blog who uses Honey Nut Ichiro's too. I scolded them for you. That blog produced some pretty good ones though.

Home, Home on the Harang is a good one!

posted by jerseygirl at 03:02 PM on February 20

I like Coyote Uggla and Remember the Alomar... I'm kinda pissed I can't think of a good one and this is not helping.

Comment icon posted by YukonGold at 7:39 PM CST on February 16 Oh she can be stopped. I was 1st in 05, 2nd last year, didn't play in 04(africa) & was in 1st in late 03 until jg cried to the league & orchestrated an email campaign over a trade & I quit that league instead of deal w/ that BS. I can't make the draft this yr(back to africa) but we'll see.

Fuck fuck FUCK! I remembered the league today and wanted to sign up, and I missed it:(
