Oh man how the internet has changed the way we enjoy baseball. Specifically Fantasy Baseball.
Remember the late 80s to early 90s when we would draft our teams and the commish would have to do the data by hand before mailing in the paperwork? Then as the season played out we all would wait excitidely for Wednesday when the weekly stats were in the mailbox? The good ol' days. And FA pickups were made on the phone on Sunday night with FA aquisition budgets.
The nostalgia is killing me. Thank you Yahoo!

I remember him well since I didn't get him. He went first pick I believe one year (there was a huge Indian's fan in my league.) I had Randy Johnson and Frank Thomas the year I missed a first place tie by only 1 point.
Yeah, the internet has made things so much easier and faster. I'm spoiled with the instant updates and I'm not sure I could go back to the once a week standings in the mail. Ah, the good old days.
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.....
I remember the old pencil leagues. in 1991, all of the guys in my hometowner got access to email through the old telnet system. That year, we went to daily line-up changes, but the commish still kept all the stats on paper, and he emailed the standings on Sunday. These days, any old Joe can be a commish, but then, a commish had to be both committed and a bit anal. I remember dreading the year it was my turn to be the commish, only to find that my appreciation for fbb grew as a result.
