    Hi guys, Im Barry Baker, i was born and bred in Great Britain. I have been warmly greeted by numerous members already which Im entirely greatful for and just goes to show link minded people can get along within the first minutes of conversion about something they love and are passionate about. I started following baseball 2 years ago when i was flicking through the channels and bumped into michael brantley hitting a bomb vs the angels if i recall correctly i was transfixed by the noise and electric nature of the event so decided to look into it a bit more. I then found fantasy baseball and through that various podcasts which to this day i listen to and proud to announce lenny’s pod as another one to an ever growing list…….Its great to find yet another site which values baseball members and continues throughout the offseason..glad i found it and look forward to speaking to you guys more often

      Hi All, I’m Bruce, great stuff here, thx for sharing it. I’ve been doing fantasy sports for over a decade and continue to experiment with different style leagues each year, most recently enjoying slow draft dynasty leagues. Mainly an MLB and NFL guy, so I can take Jan and Feb off each year … to have more time to research baseball! Now if I could only get my son interested in baseball. Cheers!

    High my name is Cha Cha I associate myself with Fake Kings,Fake Executives,Comedian turned Fantasy Analyst n A Legend.

    I obviously am not normal!

    but then again following Fantasy Sports for over 20 years ( just ask my ex girlfriends n current wife) was never made for the average person.

    I have played season long leagues in all 4 major sports but baseball n Football 🏈 are my favorites.

    I also enjoy playing Daily Fantasy Sports and that’s how I met Lenny and eventually his lovely better half Andrea.

    They have become more than fantasy opponents but I’m lucky to call my friends.

    They have allowed me to be a part of this site where I do occasional videos on sports or life issues.

    My Dad like Lenny are from the Old School who would take me out to throw the ball around.

    Those were the days!!!

    They have led me to be Hear with this great community of Fanatics!

Worked at IBM for 17 years got laid off and decided to try my hand at podcasting. Roger Noriega from NDB MEDIA heard me and picked me up. I went on to do things I never dreamed of doing. THANKS ROG! Interviewed baseball authors, actors from shows, etc.

    Hey there everyone, my name is Todd, go by the name Schmacky. Don’t know why, a buddy of mine would always say ” hey what’s up Schmacky” so I just went with it.  Been playing fantasy sports for over 25 years started out with baseball, but also enjoy a little fantasy football.  Was introduced to Lenny on the rotoexperts in the morning on Sirius. And I just stumbled upon this site and everyone here has been extremely welcoming.

    Bob (HobsonMox)- Born and raised and currently reside in Central Massachusetts. Collegiate baseball player. Been playing fantasy sports since 1998. Big Braves fan that grew up watching the Braves every night on TBS. I have many friends that fall on one side or the other of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry and I find myself being Switzerland most of the time when breaking up arguments with friends. I have played baseball, coached baseball and umpired baseball. I have a passion for the National League brand of baseball because as a coach I find that tendencies of an NL team are more easily translatable to young baseball players. So ladies and gents, no DH for me and I’d rather see a 1-0 game than a 9-7 game any day of the week.

    <p>Hello all! I’m Jason and I’ve been playing Fantasy sports since my tweenage years. My fantasy league is about to start its 24th season. I’m a Pirates fan, but will always have a soft spot for the Chicago White Sox, because of Frank Thomas (my fave player). My other passions are sports, writing and filmmaking.</p>

My name is Clint and I am from Lancaster, PA.  Grew up playing baseball, coached, and then became an umpire.  Now that I have a family, I just play fantasy baseball to get my fill.  I am enjoying the keeper, auction format as of now.  I enjoy trying to find values and wheeling and dealing.  I would like to thank Lenny for all of the help he has given me, it is greatly appreciated.  Good luck to all!</p>

    Lindsey V. Sharman, the Curator of Art at the Founders’ Gallery of the Military Museums in Calgary thinks that some of the popularity of trench art was a combination of creativity plus people having a lot of time on their hands. “The experience of soldiers at war is not one of constant battle and perpetual moments of heightened excitement, but there is actually a lot of boredom,” she said..

    I don’t recall how I first encountered Lenny but I’m guessing it was as he guested on one of the Sirius morning or evening shows. I’ve been listening and following Lenny as well as Andrea for several years on Sirius, Facebook, podcasts, and twitter and am continually informed and entertained. Have called in a couple times recently on the weekends since I’m able to listen to the shows on Sat. and Sun. mornings. I’ve been playing fantasy sports for 10 years this year, starting with my favorite- fantasy baseball- through a league at work (I’m an inside sales account manager at Staples Advantage). I’ve since played in multiple leagues in baseball, football, and hockey including a couple of baseball & football listener/radio hosts expert leagues. I’ve been a champion multiple times in all 3 sports. This past football season was frustrating because I got into too many leagues with a busy work/life schedule, so made the playoffs in only one, and really didn’t have as much fun. The baseball season last year was great and so I’m looking forward to it starting and am taking many notes listening to Lenny and his compatriots. In real life I’m married, have 2 adult stepsons, and a grandfather of two wonderful grandchildren. In real sports I follow the Detroit Tigers (getting to 2 World Series was thrilling, crushing as lost both, this rebuilding time is going to be rough) – watch most of their games on TV because stadium ticket + parking +food prices ridiculous and I can do stuff around the house while the TV is on. I’ve been to 2 spring training games- one several years ago for the Cubs (grew up in the Chicago suburbs, went to games with my parents at Wrigley Field) and 2 years ago for the Tigers. Also am a Detroit Lions and Red Wings fan as well as follow Big 10 football and basketball (tend to watch the Michigan teams vs. my alma mater Illinois). Again, I’m honored to be in Lenny’s legion and part of the fantasy sports community. As Lenny aptly said recently, for me it’s not about winning money but rather an escape from the day to day craziness, it’s fun, it keeps me sharp, and it’s competitive. Thanks Lenny and Andrea!!
