Who's Excited For Fantasy Baseball?

I wanted to see who out there is pumped up for some fantasy baseball this season? To be honest, this is the first season in the last few years that I have been really excited? Why? Because 1) I changed jobs which will allow for me to have the summer off from working and 2) because I am going to try out Scoresheet Fantasy Baseball for the first time this year.

I am only 28 years old, but have been playing fantasy baseball since I was 12. I played online and faked my age and used my parents credit card info, and I have been playing annually for the last 15 years or so. When you do something over a long period of time, you experience the ups and downs. As a kid, I thought fantasy baseball was fun because it was all about the stats kids know and are familiar with. I remember having arguments with kids about who was a better baseball player based soley on career HRs, which is silly in retrospect but logical as a kid.

Where I have grown frustrated with fantasy baseball is that the stats do not tell the entire picture. I play fantasy sports because I want to prove to my friends (or to random people online) that I am the most knowledgeable sports fan they know, and fully qualified to be a real life baseball GM.... Well, maybe not that far, but we all have to have dreams.

I decided to try Scoresheet this year because I liked the aspect of factoring many different aspects of a player to use in a simulated game, as opposed to just compiling arbitrary stats. My AL-only league started its online draft today (it's something like 1 pick per team per day for the next 35 days or so), and my NL-only league starts it up this weekend. I've got the baseball juices going, and am excited to give it a shot of trying to build a complete team and seeing if my philosophies about baseball ring true, or are crazy.

I know it's early, but this is the most excited I have been about fantasy baseball in years, and here's to a great 2012. If the Mayans are correct, it might be the last time we are playing fantasy baseball anyhow. Gotta make the most of it!
