This sort of thing: is not going to do my wallet any good; I can tell already. Of course, I'm a sucker for collectible games anyhow. And this looks like even more obsessive fun -- forget about little dinky superheros and knights, let's play with MLB.

But I'm curious. Will this hook any non-gamers? Does the ordinary sports fan find this an acceptable form of fantasy ball? The lead designer is a Strat-O-Matic fan; it's hard to imagine he could capture that sort of complexity in a simple miniatures game, though.

I love how there's a slot for "intangibles."

intangibles are... what... what they bring to the table that can't be measured? that must be why they mock jeter as Captain Intangibles.

There's gotta be a way to measure Jeter's intangibles.

Fox might even make a reality TV show out of doing it.

I believe Mariah Carey might have a measurement of Derek's intangibles.
