Offseason Fun?

Postby rjforlife » Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:00 am

So everyone here loves baseball, but what do you do in the offseason? If you aren't an NFL fan, is there anything baseball related that can carry you through to spring training? I'm just curious if people forget about baseball for 4 months now, or there is something you guys do to keep the baseball fires burning until February or March.

I'll copy down the statistics for most players from the past season into word documents, including minor league numbers for rookies. in those statistics I'll copy down splits such as home/away or LH/RH. it amazes me sometimes how these splits get overlooked in player evaluations.
it's easy for me though, I can do it while on the computer and also having the TV on just to the side of the computer screen.

This. I even have initial projections done already.

I following the Broncos (NFL) and Bulls (NBA), but quit fantasy in the other sports.

the 4 months of hell is 1 of the main reasons all my leagues are keepers.There isn't a day go by I don't look at at least 1 of my teams and/or another teams roster looking at a possible preseason trade. I continue to do tiers and constantly tinker with my rankings and add to my draft/don't draft lists.Lots of reading,lots of waiting

Pfff...college basketball is where it's at! ;-D

Since we are in a keeper league, we open it up to off season trading only. Since preliminary prices have already come out, lot of us are already trying to make trades to improve our teams or in my case, get under budget.

Plus Shandler's book is always a Christmas present so it is really only 2 months. I always think of fantasy baseball starting in January. This is when off-season trades start happening, minor league drafts, arguments about rule changes...the stuff that I find even more fun than the actual season.
