    Get Starlin Castro for me!!! He will eventually be a 30/30 guy. At least he better be since I bought his Jersey last year a week after he made his debut.

    If the fantasy experts choose ottoneu, it must be the best! I think we need a Kobe-style Sprite satire or a Garnett “Impossible Is Nothing!” commercial to really drive the point home.

    Eno opens Excel. Pan to Behrens. Behrens begins pouring milk down his body while the slow-mo commences. Cue Warrant Remix: “She’s my Ottoneu.” Zoom on Quintong’s smile. He’s drafting an ottoneu league. Wait, he’s drafting an otoneu league while frying bacon. Naked. In Space. Holy shit, he’s actually a Centaur. He becomes the constellation Centaurus. IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING. Fade to black. Star Twinkles. Scene.

    oh is there going to be a smack talking bulletin board? what about a Podcast featuring highlights (lowlights) of the draft/ auction? How about who’ll finish better bets with absurd stunts (a la The Basketball jones) as the payoffs?

    I still wish you guys stepped out of your comfort zone and played the fangraphs points system … I mean, it is named after this site, and going with points would really show who could think through the system the best. But regardless, should be a good read…
