That was the only entertainment for me besides Bwanna trying to run up the price on Chipper. ;-)

As a heads up:

I am going to be giving the owners of BRAL first dibs on a unique fantasy baseball league that's in it's 3rd season. If you are interested in joining us I will be making a post once registration is underway and give you a heads up with a PM (with all the info on joining).

* Triple Crown League III
20 Team Max (we always fill it up)
We don't use a Drop List, No Min/Max moves/IP... everything is game.
Online Y! Snake Draft

Roster Positions
UTIL, UTIL, UTIL, DL
SP, SP, SP, DL
No predetermined Bench. 0 Bench Spots

Stats (Rotisserie Scoring)
Authentic Triple Crown Stats:
Hitters - HR/RBI/AVG
Pitchers - W/K/ERA

Testimonials:
"... very interesting format and a lot of fun. I would very much like to play this again next year. Thanks again!" - XMWarriors, 2nd Place

"Hey Rob, I feel like I give you so much crap that I have to give you credit where credit is due. Nice job setting up this league, it's very interesting and doesn't require a lot of work. I like that there are 20 teams too, makes it so that you actually need to know something about baseball because you're not gonna get pujols, arod and wright on one team. Keep up the good work, douche." - Cappy, 9th Place

I'm _more_ than happy to get Chipper at $6. Thanks, Rob. ;D

All I know is that I've got three mega-closers. Paid for 'em, but without having to shell out for Votto, I had some spare change.

You guys must all be down on Votto this year. I know I'm high on him, but to think in this draft that $33 for him is insane seems odd to me. Boomer you said you didn't want to pay more for Votto than you did for Gonzalez?, but I have him ranked over Gonzalez right now. Now granted if Gonzo goes to Boston things change, but I have him beating A-Gonz in every category but HR. I'm happy with him at $33 I was willing to go $35 at this point. :-)

I think he will do well for you, but I can't cripple my team banking on it. As far as AGon vs. Votto goes, I've got AGon above him for the power (and it's not like he kills you in average with a .270-280 type stat). I'm just glad someone was forced to pay big bucks.
