    2018 TalkSox Fantasy Baseball League -- Mike Grace Memorial League

    Unless someone wants to step up to run the TalkSox Fantasy League, I will do it again in 2018. My goal every year is to have the teams be run exclusively by TalkSox members. We have been falling short of that. Please express your interest if you want to play for bragging rights against fellow TalkSox members. It doesn't take much time outside of the couple of hours for the draft to participate in the league. You don't need to hire an actuary to be competitive. Lack of time is not a good excuse, especially if you have a few thousand posts on TalkSox. I keep trying to get some of the more vocal statheads in the league to show their stuff. Fantasy Baseball is all about the stats, so step up and show us what you got. Maybe some of you posters who think I am an arrogant prick on TalkSox will take the opportunity to kick my ass and rub my face in it. I doubt it -- bunch of blowhard cowards. LOL!!

    Please post on this thread if you will be coming back for another season or whether you want to be a new entry.

    Entry fee is $20.

    We still need more participation from TalkSox members. It is a very uncomplicated league that will not take a lot of your time.

    We need at least one more, but 3 would be the ideal.

    C’mon guys... join in!

    If you've always hated a700hitter and have been dying for a chance to make him eat his words, this is your chance.

    We have 10 teams for next week's draft. It would be great and more competitive if we could add 2 more teams. I sent out a dues notice by email.
