Today is the big day for a few reasons, most notable the start of what we are all here for — live baseball. The stats may mean little to most of the Cardinals but don’t say that to the anxious members of the Fantasy community.
While a couple of spots are up for grabs in St. Louis, whole rosters need to be crafted the next three weeks. And with that a decision needs to be made concerning the PH8 League currently sitting in waiting over at ESPN.
The end of last season definitely was a high unlike any other, but the dog days of summer certainly made keeping up with the fantasy side of the game harder. It still is enjoyable, though, so now some ideas would help keep the tradition going.
Honestly everything is up for discussion. Feel free to bring any and all ideas to the table!
In much more exciting news, today also marks a potential life-changing time for up to three Cards’ fans. Nick Straatmann, Kelsey Shea Weinrich, and Kyle Thompson each enjoyed fun in the Arizona sun for the MLB FanCave last week.
Nick told me to pass on a thank you to his family and friends who supported and helped him out along the way. They now await word as to who advances to New York but still have some unfinished business.
Part of the challenge included a Sony picture battle by the 30 finalists. From the FanCave Facebook page, the finalists were tasked with capturing as many photos as possible throughout the day and were then asked to choose their personal favorite. The contestant with the photo that receives the most likes by 6:00PM ET on Monday, March 5 is the winner.
Even though it was a contest, the Birds on the Bat contestants made some lifelong friends and enjoyed some amazing experiences so far in the journey.
Also on tap to complete the day is an interview with PH8 Podcast musical guest Star Off Machine. If you have any baseball or music questions, fire them to Nick or leave a comment. Keep checking back for updates as the 2012 campaign prepares to be an exciting one for many great reasons.
