Since everyone loves a good schadenfreude session, I figured I’d let you look at our teams, point and laugh. Hey, at least you have your ‘stache! Thanks, Random Italicized Voice. Anyway, here’s our fantasy baseball teams and how they’re currently doing:
Yahoo Friends & Family (host: Brandon Funston of Yahoo!) — 14 team, mixed, 5×5, 1250 IP cap, roto — Currently tied for 10th. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Master Standings are here.
Congratulations to the Pesky Pole Dancers (Trippin’ Baseballs), who are once again leading the pack. The Dancers shot up 5.5 points on Sunday to reclaim first place after dropping to 3rd last week. The team made 1 move this week, picking up Charlie Blackmon on Wednesday while dropping Omar Infante. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Master Standings are here.
Break up the Pole Dancers! Anyways, the Pesky Pole Dancers (Trippin’ Baseballs) are still holding down first place, stretching their lead to 4 points. Their top hitters this week were Michael Bourn (.344 with 7 steals), Neil Walker (8 RBI), and Mark Teixeira (3 home runs). Please, blog, may I have some more?
Once again, congratulations go to the Pesky Pole Dancers (Trippin’ Baseballs), who continue to set the pace. They lead all teams in runs scored, and their lowest score is a 7 for WHIP. That’s a Shame (The Dread Pirate Rides Again) has moved into 2nd thanks to a strong league index. Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Fantasy Razzball Master League Standings went up on Saturday. You can access them here and via the link in the ‘Razzball Commenter Leagues’ section in the left sidebar.
Early congrats to the owner of team Bill Bergen c. 1909 (aka commenter ‘Tom’) who has the early lead. Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Razzball Commenter League Master Standings are now available. We added a link in the top left of our main menu under ‘Razzball Commenter Leagues’ for future reference.
Early congratulations / unintended jinx to…
The Pesky Pole Dancers who are in 1st place among the 456 participants (38 leagues of 12)! Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey, Stephen here and this is my first draft representing Razzball. Let me know what you think of the team in the comments. Here is my team and a few things I was thinking:
Battle of the Fantasy Gods draft 3/7/11. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Grey and I were invited back for Yahoo’s most prestigious expert league – the Yahoo! Friends & Family League (the other Yahoo!-sponsored leagues we’re in include acquaintances and hoi polloi). The league has 14 teams consisting of 7 Yahooligans, 3 guys from Rotowire.com, 2 from Hardball Times, and one from Wall Street Journal and Razzball (two sites with a ton of audience overlap). Please, blog, may I have some more?
This years marks our first time participating in LABR (League of Alternative Baseball Reality) which is sponsored by USA Today and is the granddaddy of all fantasy baseball expert leagues.
We had an awesome time at the draft. It was pretty crazy to be in the same room with a number of guys that we’d only known through the little headshots they have on their website. Plus, the draft was held in Phoenix – giving us the opportunity to catch two Cactus League games (nothing too notable except that Lonnie Chisenhall and Drew Pomeranz of the Indians look really good) and eat at Pizzeria Bianco (potentially the best pizzeria in the US). Please, blog, may I have some more?
An optimist once said, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” It was so inspiring that no one followed up with the relevant question, “Did life also give me sugar because, otherwise, this lemonade is going to taste like crap?”
There are plenty of lemons in baseball*. Please, blog, may I have some more?
