of baseball and brackets

last night was a big night for sports in our house. i had my fantasy baseball draft, and i also had to fill out a bracket for the ncaa basketball tournament. i was not really excited about the bracket because i don’t follow basketball (college or professional), and the sport really doesn’t interest me. but, one of my coworkers wanted me to join in the fun, so i decided to humor him.

the highlight last night was my draft. i look forward to this every year because it means the start of baseball season is right around the corner. now that my team is set (and what a monster team it is), i cannot wait until march 30. the last two years, i have had bad luck with my teams. i’ve had player after player assigned to the disabled list, which knocked me from the top of the pack to the bottom.

this year will be different, though. i got some kick ass players, and i know that my team is going to rock. i have home run hitters and base stealers. i have some fabulous pitchers and decent (hopefully) relievers. if saves is the only category i’m at the bottom in i’ll be in good shape.

my team’s name is the best part: HomeGrownHitters. using the capital letters you get “hgh”. haha. so fitting for baseball. all credit for the name has to go to my husband. he always comes up with such creative team names.

my last pick of the night was tom glavine. i figured i should get another pitcher, and considering glavine is coming back to the braves for what probably is his last season, i thought it was fitting.

i’m going to kick some fantasy baseball butt this year, and i can’t wait.
