First post- thought I'd say hi.

Postby Birds on the Bat » Sun Dec 14, 2008 3:35 pm

What's up Fantasy Baseball Cafe?

I was an avid fantasy baseball player about three years ago and played in a pretty fun/competitive league with some friends. Most of the league, including myself, began to get bored, and the league folded. It was fun while it lasted, but I haven't played fantasy baseball since.

I'm trying to get back into fantasy baseball again though. I've got the fever! The only problem is, having been out of the game for a few years, I know nothing about which players to target or avoid. I'm a huge Cardinals fan and of course watch them, and I follow baseball closely. But I can remember back when I still played fantasy baseball, I could tell you my opinion on what round every player in MLB should be drafted. Now, I go over to the Baseball Leftovers section and see a top 100 for 2009, and I don't understand how Ian Kinsler could be ranked 17th! I knew he was good, but wow!

Anyway, this site looks like the place to be for fantasy baseball fans. I am excited to get going... now I just need to find a league!

You came to the right place.

If you want a league look here:

Welcome.

How avid a cardinals fan are you? Would you put Yadier Molina on your (wedding) 'save the date' cards? :-D
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.
