I am still alive :) Just totally obsessed with baseball. Not only have I been busy watching Red Sox games, and no, I have not given up on them, even though right now they are in dead last with the worst record in the entire MLB. I have faith! Hey they finally won two games in a row!
But back to where I have been. As I said, not only have I been busy watching Red Sox games, I have also finally bit the bullet and jumped into the world of fantasy baseball. I have always wanted to get involved with fantasy baseball but never got up the courage to do so until this year. I decided to join a public league, one where I didn't know anyone else. I had no clue what I was doing but figured the only way to learn was to dive right in. I told myself it would be a learning year. Meanwhile, right after I joined the league, I was invited to join another league with a bunch of Sox fans I know through the internet.
So now, not only am I trying to figure out this whole fantasy league thing, I am managing TWO teams! That means, I need to keep track of players on almost every team in baseball. I now not only watch Red Sox games, and the occasional game between two other American League teams, but I am also keeping track of teams in both leagues and watching as many games as I can daily. That is a lot of baseball! Good thing I love baseball!
My team with my Sox friends is doing terribly. I screwed up when doing the draft so I knew right away I was pretty doomed in this league, especially since there are 20 teams in the league and not many players left to pick up. My goal is to just not come in last. My other team is doing surprisingly well. I'm not in first place, but I am hanging in there. There are free agents, waivers, trades, etc. I have to check the line ups in the morning to make sure I bench the right players. Today I made a major error! It can leave you pretty dizzy, but I am having fun.
Anyways, I wanted to let everyone know that with the end of the school year coming up (6 more weeks left), my complete obsession with baseball, and the need to somehow find time to prepare for my trip, I will be taking a break from blogging once again. I do plan to blog when I get to Italy. I am not sure though if I will do much blogging before then.
Stay well everyone. Talk to you all real soon :)
