New York Mets baseball is in full swing and for a lot of us that means fantasy baseball season is also well underway. Jordany Valdespin brought some excitement to Queens last night and fans may be buying into the idea that this will be more than just a ‘lost’ season. The same sentiment may not currently apply to your fantasy baseball team.
Most fantasy baseball leagues play out over the course of an entire season, but we’ve teamed up with an innovative site, Draftstreet.com, that has taken things to a new level. DraftStreet can almost be explained as the love child of fantasy baseball and poker, whereby you can choose your fantasy team and get immediate rewards in one-day or multi-day events. Simply put, Draftstreet makes it easy to turn the page on a bad day in fantasy land and have generously offered our readers a FREE FANTASY BASEBALL CHALLENGE with $300 in cash prizes this Friday, April 26!
To participate you simply need to enter by clicking here or the banner ad below and start picking your team. The top 15 positions in the contest get paid (check out the breakdown below for the specifics).
Getting started is an easy process:
1) Enter the Metszilla/Draftstreet.com freeroll through this link and sign up with a username and password.
2) Fill your roster [C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 utility players (any position), 2 SP, RP, flex pitcher (SP or RP)] while staying within the *budget of $100k.
*Player salaries are set by DraftStreet based on fantasy production. So, if you want to put Jordan Zimmerman or C.J. Wilson on the mound this Friday, it will cost you more than someone like Dillon Gee, who gets the nod for New York against Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies.
3) The contest is Friday and is a one day event. You can build your team at any time between now and then and adjust your roster up until the games start Friday.
4) Check out the scoreboard when the games start and watch to see if you finish in the money!
Friday morning the Metszilla staff will be posting our squads for everyone to view and we can’t wait to see what kind of teams all of you put together. After all, we all know Mets fans are the most knowledgeable baseball fans around, but let’s see if it translates to success on the fantasy baseball stage. Good luck to everyone!
