Interactive Fantasy Baseball

You got Zambrano on the mound...he's gone 6 scoreless but has consistently gotten out of trouble all game long...you're happy with the outing, you're more than happy...your whole day has been made...and Big Lou trots him out there for the 7th...you already know what comes next...a 4 straight guys get on, 2 runs cross the plate, Lou yanks Z and Marmol surrenders the other 2 runs Zambrano was responsible for

What a nightmare...have you ever thought about a fantasy game where YOU CAN LITERALLY BE THE MANAGER...you could yank your starting pitcher from your fantasy team whenever you wanted...or if you got Billy Butler on your bench and he's raking while one of your regulars pulled a hammy, you could substitute him right in and get credit for his future at bats

Anybody ever think how cool it would be if Fantasy evolved into something like this? I know it would be very difficult..there's a lot of crap involved....but I'd love it
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

I've thought about this but it is way too time consuming for it to be any fun.

It would work great for football but tiresome for baseball. 16 games with halftimes vs 162 games. I would hate to be on the east coast with a ton of west coast players.

Yea I get those concerns...of course it wouldn't be mandatory...you could leave your guys in their slots and leave them at the whims of their real manager...but as an added option (maybe even just for pitchers) I'd love it...
