Today’s the hard sell, as our free fantasy baseball game through Draftstreet takes place today and is COME ON something you should sign up for. I’m going to put that link in every second word. I wanted to get today’s reminder up early, as a lot of you leave work early during the summer and because more than one person (including me) has had to go back in and replace Rickie Weeks. He hurt himself, and will miss 2-6 Rickies.
But yeah, the big major link is SIGN UP FOR YOUR GAME TODAY! It’s fun, it only takes a few seconds and gives you a shot to win free money for doing squat. Also (and this is a lie) if you sign up it removes all further mentions of the game from your With Leather feed.
