We're running another fantasy baseball game this week with our pals from FanDuel.com, and if you haven't been won over by the ability to win cash in free games or toss in a few bucks and win a few hundred making me look like a chump, hold on to your butts.
Come on, Johnny Cueto! You're pitching against the Pirates! I expect two concurrent perfect games from you! Win this contest for me! I've decided to put away my history of horrible fantasy performances and destroy this week's FanDuel contest, wherein you pay $2 to enter and stand to win cash from a $200 cash pool ... and the best part is that you can enter three times, and if all three of your teams finisher higher than me, you get your entry fee back. That's a pretty sweet deal, and if you want to be a part of it you need to act fast -- there are only 110 total spots in the contest avaiable, most of those have been filled already and the games start tonight.
Here's a quick illustration of my fantasy baseball prowess: 1. Pick the best guys in baseball. 2. Watch them have their worst game ever, all at once. 3. Watch Ben Francisco or whoever hit 5 home runs. 4. Find out everybody but me drafted Ben Francisco. 5. Finish 745th out of 600, win zero dollars. But because you are not me, you've got a great chance of winning money and should sign up for our free fantasy baseball game with FanDuel.
Want to be as rich as these guys? Here's your chance! Well, not really, but With Leather is teaming up with FanDuel to bring you a free fantasy baseball game that can win you cash money from a $1,000 prize pool AND IT STARTS IN LIKE 30 MINUTES SO IF YOU'VE BEEN LOLLYGAGGING PLEASE STOP DOING THAT AND SIGN UP TO PLAY RIGHT NOW.
As I've been incessantly reminding you, we're running an awesome free fantasy baseball contest with FanDuel to give you a shot at a $1,000 cash pool. Here's how it works, if you haven't been paying attention: It’s a one day contest and works like you’d expect … you draft the best team you can under the salary cap and play them against the league. You can track your team’s progress through live scoring, and you get paid out at the end of the day once all games have ended. Then you look at how I’ve performed and see if you’re better than me. Then you go to my website and brag at me until I shut down With Leather completely in anger. The games go down on April 5 (tomorrow!) so be sure to hurry up and sign up for it now.
We've done fantasy sports at With Leather before and I've been notoriously bad at them (I finished in 800th place in a 200 person league), but I've got something going for me -- baseball season is officially underway and regular season games (and The Dugout) start rolling out next week, and between my knowledge of the Cleveland Indians and how computers work I'm a shoo-in for a first place finish.
No, your eyes do not deceive you.
Here's a picture of Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates and tight end Owen Daniels hugging each other in celebration of being drafted to my terrible Draftstreet fantasy football team. You should be hugging, too, because this week's contest -- a 50-person cash game for $11 that gives you a chance to win money from a $500 dollar cash pool and gives $5 to anyone who places higher than me -- proved so popular that they're adding 50 more players to the mix.
His last solo album has scanned nearly six million copies and his most recent output, Hell: The Sequel, with Royce Da 5'9", is well over gold in sales.
I'm cheating this time. I'm going the Tebow route, and I'm going to read my Bible and finish first place in fantasy football with Draftstreet. Of course, that's not going to happen (the me winning part, at least), and that's where you come on. Instead of a freeroll this month, With Leather has organized a cash game. The first 50 people who drop $11 dollars to play get a chance to win money from a $500 dollar cash pool, and here's the best part: every single person who finishes higher than me wins $5.
My team is set. As promised, I drafted Aaron Rodgers, all 21-k-plus of him, and I'm hoping he's enough of an undercover secret for me to gain the advantage and win our weekend's free fantasy football game through Draftstreet. If not, at least I can know I associated his performance with this sad looking dog in a cheesehead, and that is something. If you haven't signed up to play yet, I'm urging you to do so now.
If the Kate Upton and NFL cheerleader pictures haven't gotten you to sign up for our free fantasy football weekend game with Draftstreet, I'm taking the next step in shilling: pictures of English bulldog puppies wearing football jerseys.
