Dear readers: I don't do this very often, but I do actually think you guys might enjoy this game, so read on, especially if you're the kind of person who likes fantasy baseball, but always gets bored and basically abandons the team by June.
There's a new way to play fantasy baseball that turns the season-long grind into quick one-night leagues. And the best part is that you can win cash every single day. You draft a team for one night and get paid out as soon as the games end that night. DraftStreet.com is at the forefront of this new trend in the fantasy world and has a great promotion: a free one-day fantasy league with $150 in prizes exclusively for Beaneball readers.
The basic way the game works is this: it's a salary-cap style draft where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 14 players at the following positions: Catcher, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 Utility, 2 SP, 1 RP, and 1 P. Each MLB player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance.
You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts this Friday, April 27th, at 4:05 pacific (7:05 eastern) at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.
