This post is a long time coming. Fantasy baseball is long over and I am just now getting around to posting how I did this year. I was in four different leagues and I have to admit I had my best year EVER!!
League #1 Card Blog League hosted by PunkRockPaint
I narrowly defeated Beardy in the finals to pick up my very 1st Fantasy Baseball championship. When I say narrowly it came down to the a tie beaker at the end.
League #2 hosted by Sports Cards Uncensored
I picked up a 3rd place in Gellman's league. Adam hosted a really deep league and I thought about mid season that I wouldn't even make the playoffs cause there was no free agents worth a hoot to pick up. Oddly enough it was my pitching that carried me all year. Only time this has ever happened.
The 3rd league I was in consisted of mostly people that I have known for years and years. Most are fellow collectors from my area. There were a few guys from out of town that I didn't know however. Two of which wrote this book. I don't know how much their understanding of Bill James helped them though because neither of them won. I took 5th overall. This was a real disappointment because I still feel like I had the very best team. I just had a bad week in the first round of the playoffs. It's okay though because it is a keeper league so half of my team will be back next year.

This was my first try at being comish of a league. It was also my second 1st place title as I knocked around Dayf in the final.
So two 1sts a 3rd and a 5th, not too bad for one year. I'm very happy with that. Hopefully my luck runs into football and I do as well with my 3 football leagues. I think I have a legitimate shot at two of them plus I'm in a basketball league that I think is winnable.
Actually I have a shot at another baseball league. I almost forgot about the Blaster Fantasy League. Edit - I just looked at my team again, no shot at this one.
