The fantasy suits

One more thing. If you are a fantasy baseball or rotisserie baseball player (not sure what the difference is, but I know a lot of "roto" guys who think "fantasy" is an effeminate and lame term), check out this and this from yesterday's (or is it today's?) USAToday.

Hopefully all the revenue generated by fantasy baseball will be split evenly among the clubs, like the satellite radio deal, because that would be a boon for the Bucs.

On the other hand, baseball is seriously molesting the hen that lays the golden eggs if they aim to shut down "small-time" games. I'm in one league where half the players would quit before they would learn how to use a new site or (god forbid) a new scoring system. Actually all my leagues are like that. If they want to jack up the fees, fine, but shutting down games in hopes of consolidation will not be good for growing the fan base. It would be a bit like a politician saying he was no longer going to take money from fundraisers that failed to raise at least $1 million.
