3 more days is too long!!!!!

Postby TheMeXiKaN » Thu Mar 31, 2005 2:40 pm

Am I the only one going mad with anticiption for the start of the 2005 season? This is only my second year in fantasy and its already transformed me from your average Met fan to a Baseball super-fan! cant wait . . . .

O, I suppose that the 300$ I stand to win in my money League might have something to do with it. B-)

It's odd, as I am in Champaign, IL, site of college hoops inebriation right now, and am kind of 'well, hmmm...' about hoops as whatever happens will happen but am chomping at the bit for baseball to kick off. Hopefully there won't be too many night games on Tuesday though...as I would have to run up the stairs to keep track of my teams!

I have been whetting my appetite by fiendishly reading baseball books, October 1964, The Bill James HOF book The Politics of Glory (which I saw in the bookstore w/ a different title...) and Talkin' Baseball an Oral History of Baseball in during the 70s last week on vacation. Right now I am about 2/3 of the way through Spirit of St. Louis, a History of the Browns and Cards. Very interesting stuff. The Bill James book is worth reading, to explore ways of comparing guys over time with an eye towards filtering a lot of the PR that ends up marketed as journalism in the 'industry'. The St. Louis book is a very good read.

I can't friggin wait. I've been doing fantasy baseball for a few years now, and it gets more interesting every year. Especially this time since there hasn't been hockey. the break between football and baseball has been grueling. I tried fantasy basketball last year, but it sucked. Baseball is just the perfect sport for fantasy because it is such a statistically driven sport. Anyway, yeah, can't wait for sunday

I know the feeling, I cant wait either, i find myself joining more leagues and doing more drafts to bide my time...(as a matter of fact, have one starting in seven minutes :) )

Heh, I've been reading a baseball book too. It's called "Those Damn Yankees". Good book lots of historical goodies, lots of dirt about the Yankees :-D

I just finished October 64 not too long ago - absolutely terrific. You should also check out Summer of '49 or the Teammates (or really any other book by D. Halberstam...although most aren't about baseball...)
