Two reasons. One, it's free. Two, it's fun.
Why play in a money league?
Two reasons. One, it's fun. Two, I might win more money than I paid to get into the league.
Since both types of league are fun, those reasons cancel out, so we're left with "it's free" vs. the potential for profit. If I win a free league, I get a $0 payout, but didn't lose any money , just time and effort. If I don't win the free league, I get the exact same thing. If I win a money league, I'm rewarded for the time and effort that I put into it. Of course, if I don't win the money league, I'm worse off than I would have been if I'd played the free league instead.
If fantasy baseball wasn't fun, and all I cared about was a payoff for my time and effort, I'd just forget about it, and go get a part-time job during baseball season. That way, I'd get a sure pay-off for my time and effort.

I notice all the free leagues (even dynasty/keeper freebies) in the classifieds forum. I mean have everyone ante up at least 5 or 10 bucks to make it worthwhile.
Joe: Hey I won a fantasy baseball league.
Schmoe: Oh cool, what did you win?
Someone explain why so many dedicate so much time to free leagues. I know the obvious reason, but cmon.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

And if this question is so stupid, why are you answering it?
I guess it didn't fall into your definition of a question that really makes you think like...."Hey bubba, do ya think my favorite 1st baseman will hit me a homer today?"
Must of struck a deep nerve with the penny pinchers that went on a rant. Take a valium and pass out already.
