Lawr writes about the number of leagues he plays in, thinking that maybe he’s playing in enough.
I’m reminded of a talk the Blue Jays scout Kimball Crossley gave at First Pitch Arizona a couple of years ago, which he started by saying that people who played in more than one fantasy league were missing the point. A big league general manager makes choices and has to live with them. Those of us playing in two or five or ten leagues, aren’t really making choices, he said, we’re throwing crap at the wall and are glad that some of it sticks.
Over the last few years I’ve dropped out of a few leagues, in part because I agree with Kimball (who some years ago drafted the Patton-Kreutzer team in the XFL, when neither Alex nor I could make it to Arizona for the draft), and now only play in three (AL only keeper American Dream League, NL only Tout Wars, oddball mixed keeper XFL).
I miss the guys, especially in the Rotoman’s Regulars League with it’s 20 team mixed format, but sometimes less is more.
