WFNY Fantasy Baseball

We mentioned it in an earlier post, but we have more information for you now. There will be a WFNY fantasy baseball league, but with a twist. The league will have 16 teams and 2 divisions. WFNY staff will be one division, and readers will be another! In addition, there will be an online auction for players. If you want to participate, you MUST be available for the online auction on Wednesday, April 1st at 8pm EST.

If you can make the auction, and think you have what it takes to take down the staff, (usually a good movie quote will distract us by the way) then add a comment to the post and we’ll draw names for the spots. Good luck.

    Ready to rock!

  • Jason

    I want in!!

  • The responses so far show little creativity and although I’m sure those terms have been said in movies so far, they are neither memorable nor funny.

    Step up your game folks.

  • Is the league on Yahoo?

  • Matt

    Sign me up!

  • It will be an ESPN league this time. More options.

  • Paul

    It appears that my first post (#1 in this thread) had the same impact as the infamous Colorman.


    Harry Doyle: [before the playoff game] Monty, anything to add?
    Colorman: Ummm… no.
    Harry Doyle: He’s not the best colorman in the league for nothing, folks!

  • Kevin

    I would like to be in the league… here is my quote…..

    Mark Shapiro: There’s David Delucci…
    Jeff Datz: He was almost an all-star in Texas wasn’t he?
    Mark Shapiro: Yeah then he wound up playing in Philadelphia
    Jeff Datz: Wish we had him 2 years ago!
    Mark Shaprio: We did
    Jeff Datz: 5 years ago then!!

    I should be able to make it, I want in.

  • S-Dub

    P.S. My performance in teh basketball league should speak for its self.

  • Matt

    I want in!

    “Swung on and belted….waaaaaaaayyyy back…..waaaayyyy out of here”

    (that gets me pumped just writing that – Tom Hamilton rocks!)

  • Kevin

    I agree Tommy H gives me goosebumps

  • Kunal

  • Kunal

    oh right, movie quote

    “We’ll keep an eye out for ya Stingray”
    “YEAH! SEE YA!”

  • Jon

    I’d love to be in!

  • scotty p

    There are really only two quotes to know and live by:

    “First you make a da money, then you get a da power, then you get a da women”

    “Leave the gun, take the can-ole”

  • Well played, Kunal.

  • Les_fleurs_du_mal

    Please Please Please, Let me, let Me, Let me, play in this league! If my play in the WFNY hoops league is any indication, I am ready to roll. . .

  • Illmatic8

    I’d be honored to compete in the league.

    Sue: “I took the Kings to the cup!”
    Trent: “Yeah, against the computer with the offsides off”

    Let’s play ball!

    In a way, each of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us.

  • My performance in the basketball league is the lamest reason to include you in the baseball league. Especially when I win the basketball league…

  • @ Rick: I hope to improve upon my standing in the basketball league. Won’t be hard since I’m in dead last.

    New strategy: Don’t draft guys that will be hurt all season.

  • Chris



  • Louis

    “how’s your wife and my kids?”

    sign me up for the league!

  • Les_fleurs_du_mal

    you are absolutely right Rick. That was a lame attempt. I blame it on the laziness that 9 hours in a cubicle breeds. Let me take another stab at it . . .

    “Baseball’s hard, guys. I mean, it really is. You can love it but, believe me, it don’t always love you back. It’s kind of like dating a German chick, you know?”

  • SummitOmar

    I really wanted to play but I can’t make it that night. Maybe next year. For purposes of my movie quote I’m calling shenanigans on the draft date and time!

    This thing with Farva really screwed our pooch.
    They can’t lump us in with that maniac.
    But our shenanigans are cheeky and fun.
    Yeah his shenanigans are cruel and tragic.
    Which makes them not shenanigans at all, really.
    Evil shenanigans.
    I swear to God I will pistol whip the next guy who says shenanigans.
    Hey Farva, whats that the name of that restaurant you like, the one with all the goofy sh*t on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?
    You mean shenanigans?

    Look @ the score board now, grasshopper. I wish I could play, but I’m already in 2 leagues and dont want to stretch myself too thin. I’ve got my draft this weekend. Hey do most of you guys do your drafts online or @ like a bar or something? Mine is @ a bar near my place this weekend. I ask because I saw this interesting contest they’re having @
    Looks pretty cool…you can win a big trip to South Florida to host your Fantasy Baseball Draft. Here’s a link in case anyone’s interested:
