My Other Hobby

It's that time of year where I start thinking about my other hobby.....fantasy baseball. I've been playing FB (not to be confused with Facebook) for a few year now. My draft is March 24th at 9:00 p.m. Our league is an "old school" roto league, meaning that we can gain and lose points in each category every day. Many leagues are now "head to head" one team plays another for the week and points are earned based on how you do against the other team. We also pre-determine our draft order. This way we can think about how we want to approach the draft before it starts. I'm not a big fan of finding out where I'm drafting 30 minutes before the draft is set to start.

The league is 5x5 meaning we earn points for home runs, RBIs, batting average, stolen bases, and runs scored on offense and wins, ERA, WHIP (walks + hits/innings pitched), strikouts, and saves for pitching.

Since I don't know who's reading, I'm not going to write about my draft strategy. I will post my team and write about my during the season. For now it's back to running.

Hey, thanks for coming by and saying Hi. I didn't even know you ran in my neck of the woods...Good luck in your race tomorrow.

Thanks also for your compliments on my coaching of F.L. It really wasn't at all as dramatic as the way she portrays it in the podcast. I just basically gave her a few pointers along the way.

Anyway, I appreciate you coming by anyway and will follow your blogging and running from now on. Hope that's okay with you.
