• We ran a few Federal Baseball Fantasy Leagues through Yahoo!Sports.com last season, I really don't remember who won the one I participated in... hmm? Nope, can't remember, but it was great. I'm sure we'll be doing the same this year [Wink, Hey Dave!] Though I don't remember who won our league, I do, however, remember our friend bluelineswinger doing the single greatest post-fantasy draft write-up in fantasy baseball history. Seriously, it's worth joining a league this year just to see what he thinks of your drafting if he does it again. But, what was wrong with my 7th Round pick of Gaby Sanchez? The Fish 1B had a .266/.352/.427 slash last season with 35 doubles and 19 HR's! Alright, maybe I took him too early, but I panicked when first basemen were flying off the list... What follows is some copy promoting the opening of Yahoo! Sports.com Fantasy Baseball '12 season. Read on if you want some information and mayhap we can start discussing setting up this season's Federal Baseball Fantasy Leagues, or wait a little while for the next story to appear in the space if you're not interested.
