  1. Or, you could just do what my husband did and find a woman who also plays fantasy baseball. Just don’t be embarassed when she beats you and the rest of your league. Take it like a man.

    P. S. these tips are good, though. Use them, even if your ladyfriend likes baseball.

  2. “six month long anti-love fest” Only six months?

    October: Regular season over, accumulate all of the position eligibility requirements for next season

    November: Start building the spreadsheets because the Bill James Early Projections are out, figure out what went wrong during the season

    December: Begin looking at minor leaguers that were ignored during the season

    January: Collect other projections (RotoChamp, Oliver, CBS, ZiPS), keep track of free agents

    February: Start drilling down 25 man rosters

    March: Spring Training!

  7. Fantasy baseball budget;
    assorted magazines……………………$30
    annual league fees……………………..$150
    nice pre-draft dinner for my wife…..$200

    Having her listen to my baseball rants and raves, asking me each week how I’m doing in league play and then rooting for me all season long…PRICELESS!

    Sorry to drag out this old MasterCard cliche…but it’s true!

  8. “Or, you could just do what my husband did and find a woman who also plays fantasy baseball.”
    Terrible idea. I did that and my wife divorced me and the other woman’s husband keyed my car.

    …oh you meant find a woman to marry that likes fantasy baseball. Never mind, forget what I said before.

  10. Fantasy baseball magazine = $8.00
    New batting gloves and jersey for this years draft (montero on mariners)= $90.00
    Construct a fabricated metal trophy for my win last year =$20.00
    Collect my winnings from a slacking league manager = -$300.00
    Buy in the three leagues i’m in this year = $70.00

    Total money made off fantasy baseball last year $112.00

    Not to shabby!!!

    funny thing about this article is my wife already asked me what i did wrong last week, because I already began the good husband process.

  11. The most remarkable thing just happened to me. My longtime girlfriend who frequently derides me for my “pathetic” obsession with Fantasy Baseball just told me she joined a keeper league at work. Somebody pinch me.

  12. I played my wife in the semi-final series of our fantasy league playoffs last year. Thankfully I beat her or she would never let me forget about it. She’s not a fantasy baseball addict, but she plays in our league, as do seven of her girlfriends.
