Starting next week, With Leather is pairing up with DraftStreet.com for a fantasy baseball challenge with two major positives: number one, I get to do it, possibly well, because baseball is the one sport I can manage in fantasy. Number two, it’s free to play, and if you win we’re giving you $300 from a prize pool. Yes, that is a lot of money, and a better prize than a t-shirt (although those t-shirts are pretty sweet, and I still haven’t gotten one).
Anyway, we’re starting the game up next week, but we want you to sign up now. Signing up benefits you, it benefits With Leather, and it doesn’t result in you getting a bunch of faux-lottery spam. We wouldn’t direct you to something that wasn’t both legitimate and fun, so if you like anything (and hopefully everything) we do here, signing up for this is a good idea. And we’re all doing it, as the contest is exclusive to WL, so you get the joy of beating the crap out of us at something. Tell your friends you beat the crap out of The Dugout guy in fantasy baseball!
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.
We’ll give you some additiona information as the week rolls on, and absolutely badger you about it over the weekend. So hey, free contest. Free contest with the possibility of a ton of money. Go ahead and sign up, and we’ll see you next Friday.
