A return to blogging

My apologies for the delay between posts. Real life interrupted and I haven't been able to post on here as frequently as I planned. I should start having some more frequent posts starting this weekend.

Baseball is coming!

I'm starting to see more grass in my backyard so my anticipation is rising for baseball season. Just two weeks ago I had nearly a foot of snow on the ground. Now, I've got large patches of grass and even smaller patches of snow.

Regarding Tigers baseball, the relief pitching questions remain. Will Rodney be ready by April? Will Byrdak or one of the other relief pitchers step up and perform? Will Todd Jones break out of his funk and get command of his pitches?

On the other side, Verlander is looking awesome this spring training. Last I heard was that he had not given up a single run so far. Let's hope that kind of pitching continues throughout the season.

Fantasy Baseball

For the first time ever, I've accepted an invite to join a fantasy baseball league. This particular league is on ESPN. I'm pretty sure I've got a good grasp on how the league works, but I'm unsure as to whom I should be drafting.

Does anyone have a method for drafting players? I mean, I know I should be drafting the best available position player left, but it seems like there should be a science to it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Winter Blahs

Okay, it's March 1 and I'm looking out my den window. I look up and see blue sky, a few white clouds and sunshine. I look down and I see 9 inches of snow.

Where's spring?! This weather makes me wish I was in Lakeland right now.
