Entrecarder Profile: Fantasy Baseball  

Fantasy sports leagues have been around for some time now and I think I joined one for all of about 2 weeks. That doesn't stop me from appreciating the passion that surrounds this digital pastime and the real sense of competition that it can evoke. Hardly anyone who has posted in the Entrecard Forums has escaped bumping into Fantasy Baseball, so I decided to take a closer look at the site that currently is advertising on my widget.

Writers for the site are Rudy Gamble and Grey Albright and you can almost smell the pine tar as you click from page to page of detailed notes on today's major leaguers. I grew up in Los Angeles during the Koufax and Drysdale era and stopped followed baseball shortly after Fernandomania. However, wandering through this site (which is located at Razzball.com) reminds me of my youth, when I was the winning All-Star Little League pitcher for the National League, playing at Like Field on Sepulveda Blvd in West Los Angeles. Sites like Razzball exist for the boy in grown-up men who never quite left the ballpark and each year look forward to changes in the weather that herald the beginning of a new baseball season and yet one more chance for sports glory.

Yet, what makes Fantasy Baseball a valued member of the Entrecard community isn't the stats and commentary, but the playful and good-natured ribbing that permeates the Forums during game time. Whether forum or dugout, Fantasy Baseball is going to make you laugh, give you an honest opinion, and occasionally make you look to make certain your fly's not open before you step up to the plate.

What next?
