If I had to make a list of things I was terrible at that bode ill for my career as a baseball blogger, these two things would be on it: self-promotion and fantasy baseball. Today, then, is a special occasion: I'm about to do both.
You may have already noticed the network messages about it, but SBN and CBSSports.com have partnered up to offer premium fantasy baseball leagues at a discount for the 2010 season. You'll see them all over the usual ad spots—apparently the KY people were not willing to offer discounted fantasy baseball leagues—and in sponsored posts like this one across the SBN baseball network.
That means two things to you, The Viewer:
- By clicking this link, and others like it, you'll be able to set up CBSSports.com Commissioner Leagues at a 50% discount, which comes to $90 after a 14-day free trial. These are the fully featured models, including keeper-league capability, live scoring, full control over rules and scoring, live chat, and analysis. (Full disclosure: I get a kickback every time you click that link, and others like it, and set up a commissioner league.)
- I'll be commissioner of a Viva El Birdos fantasy league on CBSSports.com, which I'll write about periodically over the course of the season. It's a Head-to-Head league, statistical categories as-yet-undetermined, because that is the only kind I know how to play.
If you'd like to be involved in the league, leave a comment. (I'm also taking suggestions for the league name.) I've cut back on my fantasy play, so this is your one chance to see just how bad I am at fantasy baseball, and just how terribly I overrate prospects in the middle rounds.
Here's the 50% off link one more time, and here is my first-ever small print: CBSSports.com is an SB Nation partner and paying sponsor of the SB Nation baseball communities. This post is one of a series of sponsor-endorsed posts related to the CBSSports.com Fantasy Baseball Commissioner League.
