Did anyone look at the rankings for the keeper leagues in TSN? It has to be some of the worst rankings ever. They have Barry Bonds ranked #6 and Rogers Clemens ranked 23 or something. For this year only they have Clemens ranked #114 or so.

Simply mindboggling.

it is a little too early and SN is not so great but thats my main thing i was trying to say takes the withdrawals away

i wont use this particualr guide on draft day at all..just some good reading for now and good to get some other viewpoints on players/strategies..plus some of the people in any mag are so off its good for a few laughs

ill probably buy the index and another one when they come out

i just get excited when i see any of the football or baseball mags come out

like Navin Johnson

Yes, mags do help satisfy the fantasy cravings. Besides you have to read them so you know what the other guys in your league are looking at for their draft prep.

I usually try to circle and make fake notes by a bunch of guys I'm NOT interested in to sort of 'fluff' them in case one of the folks who doesn't HAVE a mag needs one to look at...fun to do during commercials during basketball games...

and its always good if other leagues dont know about the cafe and/or other good resources..shocking sometimes how many people just rely on the site that hosts their league

Thats the same one I bought last year. I really liked it and I will be buying it again this year. I'm not sure when it comes out so let me know if you find out.

Well, having read this thread last night, I drove a 20 mile round trip to Walmart...no luck, today at lunhctime I drove to Barnes Noble and had to wait while these obscure looking nerds shifted thru the sports magazines. When they finally departed, there were ZERO baseball mags, just loads of crappy Hunting mags and Muscle bound mags for fags.

I was not amused :~( :~(

Thats not the way we talk here at the cafe. If you don't like the magazines keep the nasty stuff to yourself.
