Only 6 times? I don't think I've ever gotten that low. B-)

When how your team did that night determines your mood when you go to bed.

"When you make up complicated scenarios that you would like to happen in order for your fantasy team and your favorite real team to both do as well as possible one day."

This is REALLY my sub-fantasy baseball hobby!!

The thing is though, I ALWAYS have a 'favorite team' in just about every game. If there is a scenario when two teams I'm not that keen on (uh, St. Louis vs. Houston for example...), I will still pick A favorite team in most games. This can lead to complicated thinking w/ pitchers and hitters from all four (IRL/ Fantasy) teams and flipping w/ the remote, back and forth between two or three games, the least interesting one of which is on the station with the best scrolling stat display).

Or maybe it's just the computers that engender the depths of compulsion? I should have no interest in Julio Lugo's OBP (.349) but, well you know....

You see your stud homer on TV and then rush to check stat tracker to make sure Yahoo counted it.

You wake up in a cold sweat at 3 AM wondering if Crawford really stole 3 bases or you just dreamt it... and then you go check!

Thats a good thread on this discussion.

When you get offered a trade that happens to be the one out of every twenty trade offers you get that seem to help your team.

You then spend time cruching numbers, looking at age, ballpark factor, career splits, the other teams roster to see what they might be willing to part with to make it even sweeter, and finally run it bye the cafe.

After all that 1 hour + of research you finally decide to accept that rare trade offer that helps your team that well, pretty much your instinct had already told you to go with that in the first few seconds of haveing seen the offer.

Only 6 times a day? Pssh, slacker.

You know you are addicted when you are writing 80% of your league's posts and the other teams in your league get annoyed at how many trades you offer.
