Draftbug: Blogger Fantasy Baseball Invitational

July 17, 2009 | by Tim McLeod | Comments (1)

Tim will be trying his hand at a new Fantasy ballgame this weekend.

On Friday, I’ll be competing against 11 other bloggers in the Second Blogger Fantasy Baseball Invitational Contest at Draftbug.

For those who aren’t familiar with Draftbug contests, the concept is simple — Fantasy baseball contests lasting just one day. For those that want to play the game, but aren’t prepared to make the long-term commitment it is certainly an interesting option. Each participant picks a team of players within a salary cap, and wins (or loses) based on the performance of their players in that night’s games. Cash contests range from $1 up to $55, and a freeroll (with no entry fee and small cash prizes) is offered every day.

The format allows players to obsess over all the same details as in full season salary cap games (park, opponent, lefty/right matchups, home/away splits, weather, injuries, etc.), while not imposing any future time commitments on participants beyond the current day’s contests. One and you’re done!

The format we’re using in this instance basically mimics that of the daily freerolls, where the top five finishers each win $1, which can then be used to enter real money contests on future days. The contest participants are as follows.

Alex – Daily Baseball Data
Sean – 27 Pitches
Dave H. – Rotoguru2
Dave R. – Dinks and Dunks
Charlie – FantasyBaseball 365
Josh – Future of Fantasy
Jay – Cardinals Front Office
Ryan – Lesters Legends
Mark – Poker Bankroll Blog
Tim – RotoRob
Troy – Roto Savants
Carl – Five Tool Fantasy Baseball

Stay tuned for the final results which will be posted tomorrow and a brief strategy discussion. Good luck to all the participants in this one day free-for-all at Draftbug.

2009 RotoRob NHL Playoff Preview: Why Parity Sucks

April 14, 2009 | by Mike Chen | Comments (0)
Paul Kariya is on the comeback trail, so don’t overlook him in your playoff draft. Parity — it’s great for competition, great for keeping teams in the hunt, great for entertaining and meaningful games. But it’s not so great for fantasy. If you’re doing a fantasy league for the Stanley Cup playoffs, there’s no easy way to [...]
