Boy does it feel good to be back! Â I canâ€™t wait to be half as productive at work and start losing countless hours of sleep staying up to watch the finish of the [email protected] game Â just in case there is a closer injury. Â Football was a fine diversion, but I always feel a little empty without baseball. Â Iâ€™m happy to be back for another season as your Razzball Commenter League (RCL) tour guide. Â I love these things. Â Really, they play to my strengths and offer ample opportunity to test strategy and ideas. Â I love the constant ability to go for every last hit, RBI, SB. Â Weekly lineups/moves have their place, I just donâ€™t find them as fun. Â The format, the League Competitive Index competition, battling hundreds of other managers for the top of the overall standings and of course, the non stop action make this a unique and fun challenge. Â Itâ€™s kind of like pounding a pot of coffee every hour, on the hour for six straight months. Â Iâ€™m also a huge nerd for all the numbers and data that gets collected from running so many leagues under the Razzball umbrella. Â I will do my part to share some of these numbers with you along the way and try to glean some info from all that data. Â VinWins was my hero back when he ran the RCL Updates, so Iâ€™ll do my best to be his protege. Â In order to make the data pool even larger though, we need you, and you, and you too. Â You see, what makes RCLs great is all of you. Â Man that sounds mushy, but itâ€™s true. Â In an ideal world, every Razzball reader would head on over to the RCL sign-ups, pick a league and all would be right with the world. Â For those of you that arenâ€™t so eager, letâ€™s sit down and chat it out.
First of all, if youâ€™re on the fence about joining an RCL, that canâ€™t be comfortable. Â You really should hop down from there and just join a league already. Â I get it though, back in the late aughts, when I first started lurking around Razzball I too was reluctant to join an RCL. Â I kick myself now though for not joining in the fun sooner. Â Iâ€™ll give you the reasons I was staying away and then explain why it was complete bunk. Â Maybe I can sway another 2-3 of you to come join the masses. Â If you have other reasons for keeping away, by all means, lay them on me in the comments. Â I love talking RCLs and if we can be doing something better, Iâ€™ll be your voice to the big wigs. Â So, here we go:
Please, blog, may I have some more?
