this is fun: http://www.candystand.com/games/cn_shock_cnwb.htm

i do the fantasy football, personally, but it doesn't require nearly the time commitment that does baseball.

if you do keeper leagues, you can still try to muster trades in the off-season.

yeah, yes...

I start getting ready for next year. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Last year I had a good offseason. "I found the cafe" We had an offseason mock draft and it took the entire offseason :-? but it gave me something to do to fill my baseball fix.

I bet I would have done much better if I found the cafe earlier. :-D
Anyway, the keeper league is the closest thing I can get during the "offseason".
