Am I the only one that likes the preseason(rankings/projections/predictions/spreadsheets) better than the actual game of fantasy? !+)

Oh and no, I'm not out of the race on all my teams...I've already clinched a playoff birth in both of my H2H World Series leagues...I wish I could say the same for my ROTO leagues but nonetheless I still have plenty to play for. I just like putting my spreadsheet together! :*)

I caught myself thinking the same sort of thing a week or so ago. Heck, I was already taking a look at top 2009 draft prospects even though our minor league draft isn't until March.

Pretty ironic... Saturday I got out my Baseball Prospectus and started looking over rosters and players again for some reason... :-b

I'm already scouring to put together a list of available minor leaguers in a league where I am going to have a high pick, but 250 some are off the board including 15 of this season's top draft picks. So far I have Inoa, Reddick, M. Stanton, and um... !+)

When I read the thread topic, I had something totally different in mind. Something um not baseball related at all. Funny how terms can change over time ... :-?

Hit some and miss more....no different than most lists and most years. But hey, I'm game....bring your list out and we'll compare the two!! ;-)

I'm with you J...it really is better...everything leading up to the draft is pure gold..and it's all down hill from there..including winning the championship....it's satisfying to win a league, but really, all that does is validate a bunch of work that I would gladly have done for nothing...I love setting up my draft board, tiering players, projecting players....it's the fun of the game

I'm 27 and thought the same as you. I hope I'm not that old!
