Fantasy Baseball 2013

I didn’t have time to write-up a self-analysis of my fantasy season last year, so I’m just posting my roster from last year so I can analyze why I finished outside of the top three for the first time in the last four years.

With the right bounce backs from key contributors like Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia, I feel like I can put myself right back in the thick of things.

    HAH! I wanted to check and see if you’ve been as bad about posting as I have. Not easy keeping up with these blogs.

    Also, I joined a fantasy football league this year. I’m sure you’ll agree that my system of choosing the most attractive players will get me far.

      With the baseball blog going up and the amount of work and research that goes into it, I haven’t had nearly enough time to write about life things. That being said, I am having a cyst removed from my wrist today, which may be fun to write about.

      Maybe when you get your next post up there, I’ll get mine finished. 😉
