gotta get ready for my true love, fantasy football (i'm sure no one in hear likes to hear that!), so my dedication to baseball has been dwindling. also, the trade deadline has passed, so I'm not trying to disect the other owners' teams in order to improve mine. I'm still here in the cafe every day, multiple times a day looking for any edge that i can (i am still a newbie), but overall I am getting bored with baseball.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

If you're going to quit, fantasy baseball doesn't need you. }:-)

Fantasy Soccer? How does one possibly score that when the teams barely score as many goals as games played?


Things like clean sheets, tackles, yellow cards, red cards, assists, extra points for game winning goals, saves, penalty kick saves, points per certain # of saves, et cetera are taken into account. If say, a defender or a midfielder scores a goal, they're awarded a few more points as well, whereas a forward is just given the standard points allotted for a goal scored.

Yahoo! has a Fantasy Premiership game for the English Premier League and you can sign up on http://fantasy.premierleague.com to play on the official Premiership site. There's also one on ESPN Soccernet. They're all salary cap games. I'm waiting for the Spanish La Liga game too. ;-D

Every August I remember seeing posts like this, asking this precise question...I'm out of it in 2/3 leagues, so it's hard to keep interesting...however, the team I'm in the race with has been my long time keeper league and I love every minute of it.

Not bored at all. I am down a couple of points in my main league right now due to a vacation with limited internet access, so I have to make it up quickly in my mind. But I am definitely ready for the stretch run in my leagues, even though in a few of them I am not in contention. :~(

It's definitely not fun if you are in last place. But tired? No!

Sums up where I am at right now - getting ready for football drafts, trying to find that waiver wire/call up edge to push for baseball - and then work :-b

i love august for roto baseball

trade deadlines are all just passed or passing so all THAT is out of the way

you can start to see the finish line and what you can do to either hold leads or catch up becomes more tangible
