WHAT IS ESPN FANTASY BASEBALL?
Welcome to the world of fantasy baseball - ESPN Style! ESPN Fantasy Baseball is the closest thing you can find to buying your own professional franchise and becoming the team's coach, owner and president. All decisions are yours to make. And lucky for you, baseball is a game filled with unbiased player performance statistics. By using these statistics, you have everything you need to understand which players are performing well and which ones are not.
You make all "team manager" decisions on who will help your team and who may hurt your team, all season long. So, with 162 MLB games per team and a minimum of 27 at-bats per game for every team, peppered with strikeouts, walks, home runs and then mixed with flame throwing pitchers and nasty closers (you get the idea), ESPN real-time stats are yours to plunder and uncover patterns in player performances that would make Theo Epstein proud!
Once you join a league, ESPN provides you with everything needed to build the best possible baseball team. And sure, you got your cut-throat, 11th hour wheeling and dealing between armchair League Managers, fully customizable league rules and scoring, multiple draft methods, live box scores, waivers, trades, free agency, custom player updates, a commissioner, league bulletin boards, sortable stats for all players, and more. There's plenty of room to sling trash- talk throughout your league, and enough stats and weekly analysis to make you the next Bill James. We just want to make sure you know what to do with it all! So sit back as we take you through the keys to ESPN fantasy baseball. Then get crackin' on creating the next fantasy dynasty!
