Hey guys -
As you remember last year I solicited BOL members to join a keeper fantasy baseball league. We had a lot of fun, but unfortunately we had four or so members out of 12 that stopped participating and one or two that dropped key players later that screwed up the keeper system and/or affected the playoffs.
To prevent that, I scrapped the league and the five or six core members decided to start anew this season. We are going to require a $30 buy-in to play where money must be paid upfront via Paypal, and the winner of our league gets 100 percent of the pool. 12 team league so - $360.
This will be a live draft ESPN league - draft on Sunday night, March 24 at 9 p.m. Eastern. You must be at the draft if you commit to the league or else I will boot you for someone else who will be active. You are responsible for reading the league rules and draft set up. 5x5 head to head league, top four teams make the playoffs and each team will select five keepers at the end of the year to carry over into the next season. I am giving up Buster Posey, Prince Fielder, Matt Kemp and Josh Hamilton by blowing up last year's league and another guy had Miguel Cabrera, Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchern. Needless to say, we want to make this work and continue it year after year.
You have to be active to stay in the league. I don't care if you don't make a dozen trades a week like me or drop and pick up starters like other guys - but at least respond to offers, keep disabled guys off the active roster and make roster adjustments.
If you are serious about wanting to play, shoot me a PM with your name and e-mail address. If you played last year remind me of that (or played in another league with us...football, etc.).

It is officially the silly season. Please get here soon Signing Day. Some of you need to get a girlfriend, hug a puppy, get outside, get a job, do something.
I have a wife, child, 2 dogs, an active runner and a job. Yet I'm an active member of this fantasy baseball league.
Maybe you should try and participate in life as opposed to criticizing how others spend their time.
Those weren't my words.

Actually thought last night...."my life has hit a wall....time to call Dr. Panty Raider, Certified Life Coach and Motivational Speaker, for some perspective."
"You need to get outside and enjoy life" - says message board poster Panty Raider on a football recruiting forum.
No. You said it.
Yeah Shane get outside and get a life *Runs and turns on the XBOX to play Halo 4*
