Last week we introduced you With Leather’s free fantasy baseball competition, where (thanks to the awesome folks over at DraftStreet.com) you get to do what you were going to do anyway (fantasy sports) with the added bonuses of a $300 cash pool and celebrity (not celebrities) guests. If you signed up last week, you’re the best. If you haven’t signed up yet, do it now, because it’s time to join the With Leather freeroll and get started.
The one night event takes place on Friday night, and in case you missed out on last week’s hype, here’s how it’s going to work.
Here’s how you play: Fill your roster (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 U, 2 SP, RP, P) while staying within the budget of $100k. Player salaries are set by DraftStreet based on fantasy production. So, if you want to put Roy Halladay on the mound it might cost you $16k, which means you’ll have to find some bargains to fill out the rest of your squad.
Don’t forget, our promo code (“uproxx”) can get you a 25% deposit bonus. I’m playing, and so is everyone else at WL, so if you’ve ever wanted to literally murder me at something (and I know some of you have) this is your shot. The bottom line is that it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun, and you could win money, so sign up and make this a huge thing. Pro tip: I’m picking Fausto Carmona no matter what, even if he’s not pitching on Friday. For a batter I’m thinking Luis Valbuena? Holy crap I’m great at this, forget all that stuff I said about you beating me. Here is one last link in case you don’t want to scroll up slightly: JOIN THE GAME!
