Fantasy Baseball Burnout

No burnout here.

My only problem is withdrawal once the season ends, as fantasy football doesn't give me the same charge, probably because there's no day to day activity.

I have backed off a little on my AL and NL only teams for the last week, keeping the lineups in but basically taking a break. I am still tweaking my keeper though as I feel my only chance to win it all is to make some bold manuevers.

I'm not burnt out at all. I'm in the middle of a 3 team dogfight for first. This is the best time to make the little trades that can put your team over the top...

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I'd be burned out at this point if my main league wasn't so interesting at the moment. Running 16 teams can kinda drag on and I'm definitely not paying close attention to 15 of them right now (somehow they're still all in the top 4/12 though).

My main league has been REALLY active lately on the trading front though. Just pulled off two separate trades that sent away Blalock, Crawford, Beltran and Hermanson and brought in Pujols and Ichiro and opened up lineup space for guys like Huff, Berkman and Ordonez. My team's moved up about 5 points in the standings this week alone and it's been an exciting ride!

Not me. I'm at the bottom in my NL, keeper only because of some bad buys and a bunch of injuries. But with the trade dealine approaching, this is gold time for me to build for next year.
And I'll still follow every day even when the deadline passes.....I'm an addict.

in my h2h leagues i'm not close to burnt out, but in one of my roto's where i'm around 5th or 6th in a 12 teamer down by 40 points i'm starting to burnout. mainly because this league doesn't like trading either, so i can't do much about it... other than that, i'm still going strong.

Never been burned out on fantasy baseball. In fact, I hate the overnight wait for the next day's games to start after I check my stats when the last day's games are over. If there aren't any morning games, it's a killer.

The downside to not being burned out is over-managing. In my Yahoo league, I've made 61 moves, most in the league. The 2nd-most moves is 28, 3rd is 23.

You can always start arranging you NFL draft order. Then jump back into fantasy baseball.
