Yesterday marked our online draft for Fantasy Baseball. The Grit Tree League had 10/10 members participating at some point in our draft last night, and accordingly, the draft took just under 2 hours to complete. When we started doing Fantasy Baseball a couple of years ago, it was started to just help pass the time in the dog days of summer. Now, for me at least, it has turned into one of the most anticipated events of the year.
Instead of the typical Rotisserie style format, we are splitting up into two seperate leagues and playing head to head. This alters your strategy a little bit. Our two divisions are “Catfish” and “Cornbread”. I am in the Cornbread Division with several friends of the blog, while Ucheedawg, Granite and Barndawg are 3/5 in the “Catfish Division.” Uchee won it all in our first year in 2009, followed by Granite winning it all last year. I have finished second both years.
Will someone new finish at the top? Will Corbindawg finally go from 2nd to 1st? Will Granite and Uchee win it all again? So many story lines in our league, so little time!
