Here's a couple of Rockies worth drafting this year
Here's a couple of Rockies worth drafting this year

One of my favorite things to do on this site the last few years has been to run the official Purple Row Fantasy Baseball league. We've always used Yahoo! for this service because it happens to be my favorite fantasy platform - and this year, Yahoo! is officially sponsoring a Purple Row fantasy baseball league!

So here's the deal - I'll be running a standard Yahoo! league with 12 teams and a live auction draft. The timing of that draft is tentatively set for Monday March 25th at 7:00 Mountain time. The draft time is of course flexible depending on the availability of the league's participants.

Speaking of which - 11 of you will get the opportunity to beat The Aberle Guarantee senseless in fantasy baseball this upcoming year. State your case in the comments thread. Bonus points will be awarded for humorous team names and/or telling me why I'd be able to beat you.

Now for some Yahoo! propaganda:
