Come Play With Usby Bryan Tsao
March 06, 2007
The past few years, the Hardball Times staff has run a fantasy league, often in conjunction with someone's personal league, since, perhaps surprisingly, there usually aren't enough staff members who want to play. This season, however, we decided that we would open up our league to any readers who wanted to join. You guys are the reason we put out this site in the first place, and we thought it would be great to interact with you guys some more.
The league will be a 12 team, head to head, weekly transaction league with the standard 5x5 categories. It will be run on Yahoo, with a live draft scheduled for Friday, Mar. 23, at 5:15 pm Pacific time. Participating in the league from THT will be authors David Gassko and Richard Barbieri, editors Matthew Carruth (author of a chapter on basic draft strategy in the THT Preseason Book ... real smooth Matthew) and Joe Distelheim, web developer Bryan Donovan and myself.
Just to make things interesting, I'll be awarding prizes to the champion and runner up, as well as the team with the best regular season record. Prizes will include soon to be revealed THT schwag, including a t-shirt for the winner, a hat for the runner up and something to be determined for the regular season champ.
