My keeper league auction is scheduled for March 25th. My wife and I's first child is due to arrive March 27th.

That kid better not interrupt my auction by coming 2 days early!
Bah, humbug.

Yikes, good luck w/ that.

I would suggest, try to keep her activity level high starting about now to help her blood pressure stay within reason. From the people I've known, BP has been involved in just about all of the babies born a few days early.

Of course, its always a good idea to keep in shape anyway but well, there's an AUCTION here!! ;-D :-D

Have your wife induce early so you can be sure you make your draft.

If you miss the draft, your whole season goes down the tube. Don't let some newborn crybaby (pun somewhat intended) ruin your season! :-b

This is what kill's me about fantasy baseball and players. You guys have got to get your Priorities straight. :-P

On one hand you have a kid..... on another your keeper league.... Really sit back and think which is more important? :-? ..... I blame you for this! People like you give fantasy baseball players a bad name. To even stop and think for a minute that you might miss your draft because of the kid? :-t


You and your wife are at fault, you should always use protection between july and october to prevent this kind of problem. You better be at the draft. Your buddies will remember you weren't there. The kid wont.... ;-D

You can always have another kid, but this is a Keeper league and you might never get a chance to get the next Pujols for a $1. It's not like the husband serves any real purpose during labor. When we had our last child I spent half of the day sitting in a corner chair asking the attendants, "Are we almost done here? There is a football game on tonight." I spent the other half of the day drinking beer, watching the football game, and calling my wife asking her "Are you almost done there? I'm starting to get hungry."
