Ah, fantasy baseball. Where real life combines with make belief in a beautiful fusion of mixed allegiances and sporting know-how with bragging rights on the line.
It's just 15 sleeps to Opening Day, and if you want to pit your baseball wits against some of the best in the business, here's your chance.
Over the next six months, I'll be running my own fantasy baseball league, providing weekly updates here on Bleacher Report with all the results, news, and notes you need to fully immerse yourself in one of the nation's favorite pastimes.
It's a 12-team, five-by-five roto league on CBSSports.com, with a live draft and up-to-the-minute scoring. There's going to be 25-man rosters, including nine pitching spots, three outfielders, your five regular infield positions, two utility men, and five extra guys for your bench.
Want to know if you can win without Pujols, A-Rod, and Hanley? Think you can punt saves and still end up on top? Follow all the happenings of the Five-Tool Studs league, and see how everything pans out.
There are still spots available, so if you want to join this league and see how you stack up, drop me a message. Between you and me, I think I've got the perfect draft strategy in place to run away with things. I'm not sure anyone has what it takes to knock me off the top spot this year.
Alternatively, if you think you can do a better job than Bud Selig and want to feel the rush of running your own league, I have got a deal for you.
