If you need to take a step back from the rumor mill – I probably do – here’s a fun, free way to do it.
Thanks to Draftstreet, we get to do another free, one-day fantasy baseball contest this week, based on Friday’s games. By performing the simple task of signing up, you (1) give yourself a chance to win part of the $300 prize pool on Friday, (2) guarantee that you’ll have some fun on Friday, and (3) support your friendly neighborhood hang-out, Bleacher Nation. These promotions help keep BN free for you to read and use, so your participation is appreciated.
Flashing Lights: Sign Up Here.
This week, we’re doing a salary cap league, which is a heck of a lot of fun. Basically, you’ve got a $100,000 salary cap to work with, and every available player is going to cost a certain amount of your available dollars. Sure, you can grab Miguel Cabrera, but he might cost you 30% of your entire pool. You might have to get creative, but that’s the fun. You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts on Friday, July 12 at 3:05 CT, at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.
You can actually pick Cubs players for this one … if you want.
As always, the best part of the contest is the free chance to win some cash. There’s $300 to be won, and 15 of you will win some money. The top score gets $100 and second place gets $60, so there’s a lot of money to be made at the top of this one.
So, to recap: sign up for the contest now. Build your roster. Tweak your roster throughout the week as you see fit. Have some fun on Friday when the games are played. Win some money. For free. You’re welcome.
*Note: residents of some States are not eligible to play, so if you’re blocked out for that reason, my most humble apologies.
