I just wanted to say a personal thanks to everyone who posts on these boards. I get so much helpful information by just reading all the debates that go on day-to-day. I have been a member for 5 years now, and I can truly say I have gotten more out of these boards then any of the fantasy news sites.

Thanks again, and good luck with your seasons!

Great thread! No doubt about it, never hurts anyone to say thank you. Thank you all who try and help others out by giving what knowledge you have to offer. There is some floating around these forums, it blows my mind how much they know. A special thanks to the mods too, guys do a great job keeping this place in order when things get a bit heated, and sharing the wealth of knowledge many of you have also. I've been around a few years now, some of what is mention above is why I love coming here. Again, thank you!

Good luck to everyone!

Anyone remember the old ESPN forums? I used to get on them before they changed, and in comparison, that forum was like the minor leagues, and this is the MLB. Great resource.

Yes this board has it's up and downs. It is certainly the reason why I am competitive in all of my leagues, especially with up to the date information, any lineup changes, injuries, changes in mechanics, etc. Sure there are some wrong picks(looking at you Ryan Mathews) but there are a ton of great pick ups too. Truly I will constantly be looking at this board and love getting the opinions of multiple people, who view players differently from all over the States.

The Baseball and Football forums are practically complete opposites.  I check the FB forum now and then but there are just too many knee jerk reactions to what happens in 1 week.  Baseball is a marathon and the majority of posters here seem to "get it".

Yeah, the mods deserve a bow also. I've been to other message board sites and they are basically a cluster f or poor information.

The annual chinese water torture known as the closer's thread is probably reason #1 this board is great. Almost instant news regarding any potential changes.

I was pretty bummed when the forums disappeared without notice a few months back (the hacker attack or whatever).  Love the blend of different viewpoints and styles, stats/analytics mixed with eyeball tests, and the exposure to different local fans with deeper knowledge of their chosen teams.  The debates are generally fun and informative and largely respectful - pretty amazing for an internet site (great job mods in helping with all of that) and the hit rate of "useful posts" to total posts is incredibly high.  Tons of info to gather.  Definitely a great resource and source of entertainment.
