Another contest for those looking to get their baseball pseudo-GM fix. This one is MLB Trade Rumor's Free Agency Contest.

This definitely falls into the category of for the "fun" of the game. You haven't lived until you've seen the Jamaican bobsled team attempt to leg out a bloop single. http://wapc.mlb.com/cutfour/2013/10/29/63484632/san-diego-state-baseball-team-plays-halloween-game-in-costume?tcid=fb_share

If I could add one stat to a pitcher's stat scan for each season, I'd add "max MPH" ... it was impressive watching Carlos Martinez and Trevor Rosenthal last night ...

Amazing Mets is running an offseason "be the GM thread" for those of you who need a little pseudo-GM outlet.

Not at all Seadog. I've run weekly mock drafts over at MDC for years and have already had several of the regulars ask when I'll be firing them up for 2014. One guy wanted to start this weekend. I've already looked at the early rounds for 2014 in not one, but two mock drafts. Next weekend we're off to 'Zona for the Fall Forum and some AFL action. HQ is running four leagues (first come, first served) as part of the program. The XFL draft is also on the agenda. It's never too early to start planning for 2014.

Does it make me a bad person if I'm already working on my list of names to throw out in the early rounds of next year's auctions?

A fun idea. But you'd have to add a whole bunch of other new categories to keep Kozma under $20.

Idea for a new category: Games played "up the middle" ... ie. C + 2B + SS + CF ... I don't know that any stats services can handle this ... but it seems a way to give value in Roto that aligns with value in MLB ...
