Announcing the Free $150 Fantasy Baseball Contest

Chicago Cubs

I told you that you’d want to come back today.

Bleacher Nation has been given the opportunity to host an exclusive, one-day, FREE fantasy baseball contest through, this Friday, May 6 (semi-warning: that link features a picture of a sexy lady in an almost shockingly low-cut bikini type thing. Still technically safe for work, though.).

The best part? The total payout for this free contest is $150 – and five people win cash. And, by participating, you’re supporting Bleacher Nation – which would be all kinds of appreciated. Think of it this way: you get 365 days of free content from me, and in return, I ask only that you sign up for a free, cash-winning fantasy baseball contest. Sounds fair to me.

Ok. So what is the contest?

It’s a one-day fantasy baseball showdown (and I say showdown, because you better believe I’m playing, too) based on MLB games this Friday, May 6.

Here’s how you play: First, sign up for free at DraftStreet. It’s easy. Then, from there, you fill your roster (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 U, 2 SP, RP, P) using a budget of $100k. Player salaries are set by DraftStreet based on fantasy production. So, for example, if you want to put Roy Halladay on the mound, it might cost you $16k, which means you’ll have to find some bargains to fill out the rest of your squad. The contest runs on Friday using Friday’s games, so here’s a tip: pick players who are, you know, actually playing on Friday.

Sign up now for free. Build a team (you can adjust your roster up until the 2:20pm (EST) game starts (which is the Cubs/Reds game, for the record)). Then check out the scoreboard when the games start on Friday, May 6, and watch your team win you cash. Or watch my team destroy yours. It’s that easy, and it looks like a heck of a lot of fun.

The sooner you sign up, the more time you’ll have to tinker with your lineup, which is a big part of what makes this so much fun. Just putting it out there.
