The winner of our league wins about $3,500 - $3,700 with 2nd place getting half ot that amount. I can go on a nice week long vacation if i win. Real baseball is great but all I get is a bobblehead when I go to a game

Money leagues are the way to go. You have more on the line and makes the season much more interesting.

I've been running a 10 team keeper league for 5 years and the pot is around $3000. Winner wins half which makes it a good chunk of money.

I won last 3 years. :-D

Actually, its funny that this topic was brought up. I often find myself questioning my sanity. I am a huge baseball and football fan. What I have found that has happened to me is that I actually dont root for my favorite teams like I used to and I find that kind of sad. When I have fantasy teams, it seems that they take precedence over the real ones. FOr example, in this past NFL season, I am a huge Atlanta Falcons fan, but I found myself rooting against them when I had a player on my fantasy team playing against them. There were also a few times when the Falcons game was being televised and I watched another game just because I had an important matchup in another game. In a way, I feel like this has changed my perspective on sports. I can now rarely tell you who pennant leaders are or how close division races are. DO I feel a little bad about the way my perspective has changed? Yes. Do I think I can change the way I view games now? NO. Will I stop playing fantasy sports? Hell NO :-)
