The Viva El Birdos fantasy baseball league is off to a—well, a nearly full start. I'm still missing one of the members who commented expressing his interest in the last thread. Differences in Yahoo! and VEB usernames make it difficult to ferret out, so let me know if you're the missing owner. My plans right now are for an auto-draft in mid-March, so as to minimize the window for brutal season-ending Grapefruit League injuries.

In the meantime: How are fantasy baseball things going? Any difficult keeper decisions to make? Any bad draft luck?This is as good an excuse as any to talk about your fantasy baseball team without threat of the no-one-cares acronym.

Anyway: Our thanks, again, to Yahoo! Sports for sponsoring this year's VEB fantasy league. If you've done any fantasy baseball at all you probably already know what makes them great, but I'll cede the floor to their bullet points anyway:
