Quantcast

I could post that picture every day.

As the picture above indicates, your chance to slap me around in the fantasy baseball arena is here. Sign up for a $500 fantasy contest ($11 entry fee), win some big money by beating the other competitors, AND get a bonus of $5 if you beat me. Historically, for reasons beyond my grasp, I have sucked at these things. So you stand a decent chance.

This contest is limited to the first 50 entries. In other words, you’re going to want to sign up right now if you want to participate, because I honestly have no idea how quickly it will or will not fill up.

To play, you register for DraftStreet if you haven’t already, and sign up for the contest here. Make out your roster, and we’ll see what’s what when the games are played on Friday. Do you really think you can beat that handsome, intelligent, clearly photogenic gentleman right there?

Even setting aside the bonus money, the contest has a huge prize pool ($500 – the winner gets $175, and the top 6 spots win cash) and a limited number of entries – that means you have a good chance of winning some actual big money with your skillz. And you get a chance to beat the beautiful douche in the picture above.

So sign up now, and let’s have some fun.

    I was hoping this would come at lunch time! I am in.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Bring it on.

  • Joepoe321

    Do we pay real $11.00?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Yeah, real money. Unless you have Itchy and Scratchy Bucks.

      • Dude

        I do but can’t figure out how to get them into the computer. The need to add something about that in their FAQ

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          USB port. Just shove ‘em in.

  • yield51

    Brett do you play on Draftstreet regularly, or just for BN contests?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Not too often, but sometimes. Been wondering if there are enough of us to do a little $2 per week type thing.

      • Ash

        For the record, I’m all for a BN weekly Friday game for $2. I’m sick of losing to the pro’s in the public leagues.

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          I’ve been waiting to get that rolling until after we did this. Any chance you’re willing to set up the league each week and forward me the info so I can share it in the Bullets?

  • DarthHater

    If you lose, would you please stop posting that picture?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      NEVER!

      • davidalanu

        but it’s so… unfortunate.

  • Jim

    Is my math off? 50 entries at $11 is $550 not $500. Where does the other $50 go?

    • twinkletoez

      Draftstreet has to make some money.

    • hansman1982

      Cubs debt.

    • Ash

      It’s what we degenerates refer to as “the rake”. Honestly, there’s a good chance DS will lose some serious money considering they’re paying back $5 to everyone that beats Brett… let’s see… 49 x $5 is $245 by my math.

      • twinkletoez

        evil mind thinking…

        Brett picks the worst possible team, we all beat him, then meet up for drinks with the winnings..

        • ssckelley

          Or better yet just forget the contest and take the 11 bucks and head to the bar.

          • Jim

            Ha! There ya go!

  • MichiganGoat

    I’m in bitches prepare to get goated Brett.

  • Ken Wiklanski

    I’d like to give it a shot. What do we do?

  • MichiganGoat

    Crap I have grades due tomorrow so some kids are getting easy credit because I’ve got to get my lineup set – thankfully they are just midterm grades.

    • Joker

      Mid term? Not a traditional schedule, I take it?

      • MichiganGoat

        Michigan starts school after Labor Day we don’t get out till mid June.

  • mjhurdle

    How is the turn-out so far?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Still have room – about halfway full.

      • MichiganGoat

        COME ON BNers LETS FILL UP THIS LEAGUE

      • baldtaxguy

        I’m in. Consider your ass kicked. :)

  • Spencer

    Bert,

    You should intentionally put together a shit team so this contest really only costs us $6.00.

    • Spencer

      My team, as usual, blows.

      • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

        I went pitching heavy. So far.

        • Spencer

          Me too.

  • Chef Brian

    Im in it to win it.

  • Werner

    I am so bad at trash talking but, since I am in this fandango, here it goes. You are bad at fantasy baseball and I am good. I will triumph and you will lose. Uh-huh. Something about your mother. Boo-yur. Uh. Boo-ahaha.

    • mudge

      Polish it up there Werner, “Your mother has advanced syphilis, and can’t throw strikes.”

      • Werner

        That’s it!

  • Joker

    I’m in – No Cubbies for me this time now that real cash of my own is on the line.

  • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

    Well, as I suspected, we filled up in less than 24 hours. Sorry for those who missed out, but we’ll get you next time.

    As for the rest of you … you’re going down.

    • twinkletoez

      I have changed my lineup like 5 times already. I can’t decide how i want to play it!

      • twinkletoez

        oh and can you explain again how I get a pic in my avatar? It works on the forums but I am guessing its different here?

        • hansman1982

          It is…go to gravatar.com and use the same email address you use here. Then give it 15 minutes and poof…you’ve got an avatar.

          • twinkletoez

            Thank’s @hansman

            • twinkletoez

              testing gravatar.

          • yield51

            Yes thank you, I have been wondering the same thing.

  • twinkletoez

    Good luck all. I ended up going strong with Boston and Texas players, I hope for high scoring games!!
