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. 

League #3
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.

League #4 Card Bloggers Unite hosted by me
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.

You have a real knack for beating me at all things fantasy. Especially after this week's 2-league football sweep. See you in the playoffs jerk! :)

Too bad it isn't something like the stock market that I am lucky at!
