honestly, I'm not surprised to learn that so few blacks are among the 30 million people who participate in fantasy sports. I've always thought that a lot of these guys (and 96% of them are guys) are nerds desperately in need of more sociable leisure time activities. Leisure time for black folks historically consists of direct interaction, the kind of experience you get at a family barbecue or hanging out with friends. Sitting in front of a computer screen pretending to be Bill Parcells? Sounds like work to me.

"Look at the offensive numbers this year. It's like, bizarro. There's a lot of guys whose numbers have been good in the past, but they're not as good this year. So I think until we get to the point where we've seen those guys play another year or so, get a little bit of a track record, saying, 'Okay, this is what those guys really are.' You can fill in the blanks. I'm not going to say the words. There's been a lot of false numbers in the past."

Total cost of retaining all 18 players for 2009 could approach $33 million (see chart), a figure the Marlins haven't reached for their 25-man roster since 2005. Bringing back the most vital contributors from this year's team could cost $44 million. Marlins' projected payroll, player-by-player Topping the arbitration list are All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla (27 home runs), right-hander Ricky Nolasco (13 wins) and two-year closer Kevin Gregg (29 saves). That trio could see its 2009 haul hit a combined $12 million, with Uggla leading the way at a projected $5 million.

Welcome, ladies and gents, to the third annual Baseball Prospectus Ultimate Fantasy Draft. What, you are probably wondering, is the Baseball Prospectus Ultimate Fantasy Draft? It is the answer to this question: If you were starting a baseball team from scratch, which players would you want to build your team around? That is, which players would you take—and in what order would you take them—if your goal was to win as many championships as possible over the medium-to-long-term?

OT: Sim Baseball League -- Baseball Mogul -- Needs owners -- Free

Hi all, I've been playing Baseball Mogul for 9 years or so now, and about 7 of that online with a group of friends. We have a league file, website, and sim two weeks of a season twice a week. There is contract negotiation, strategy, free agency bidding, trading, and articles on the league, especially when there are good and active owners. CML is the Classic Mogul League. The league started in 1955, and has been having historical drafts since then. The current year in the league is 1993. The game is free on the website (released into public domain by the publisher), and I would love it if any of you had the time to join us. I spend less than an hour a week on avergae tending to thought about my team, and while I have never brought home the statue for my team, we have been in the playoffs consistently. Oh, by the way, Milwaukee just drafted A-Rod, and that team is open. The following teams are open: CLE MIL SF SEA PIT Normally, we don't hurt for owners, but we are currently down 5 out of 30. Again, I would love it if you considered joining. If you are interested, please email our league commisioner, Steve Sparks (cmlcommish@cox.net). Most communication between owners is done via IM, email, or our forums. I look forward to seeing you at winter meetings!

Nonetheless, you would have to say the quarterback pendulum has clearly swung in favor of Kyle Orton. The simple fact is that Grossman is in his sixth NFL season and will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end means logic dictates Orton, the younger, more unknown quantity, gets the chance to grow into the position.
