    Hey guys,

    I've just joined a fantasy baseball league and I'm not only new to fantasy baseball, but pretty much to baseball itself (used to follow it several years ago).

    I was wondering if any of you guys could point me (if you don't want to spill your secrets to your league mates, you can send me a message) towards maybe a site or two that would be the baseball equivalent of Dobber's and maybe something equivalent to Dobber's guides. My draft is next week and I need to brush up on who's who.

    24 team H2H. Start 6F, 3D, 1G, 5 bench, 7 farm. Auction for 10 starters (150$ budget, 200$ cap during season), draft bench and farm. Keep 4 at 5$ more than previous year. Farm players all kept for free. Unlimited WW. 2IR.

    Scoring : Pts/D-Man G/GWG/PSG/SHOL/SO +1, PPP/SHP/SHOG/OTW/OTL/SHOW +0.5, Win +2.5
    Players ($)
    F: E.Malkin(55), T.Hall(25), W.Nylander(0), J.Zucker(5), C.Keller(0), A.Lee(15)
    D: O.Ekman-Larsson(25), V.Hedman(25), J.Carlson(33),
    G: S.Bobrovsky(6)
    Bench: C.Hagelin(0), G.Nyqvist(5), T.Wilson(0), J.Anderson(0), J.Korpisalo(0)
    Farm: N.Hischier, A.Khokhlachev, T.Sanheim, N.Scherbak, L.Kunin, J.Walman, K.Lind

    Well I mean you can go to any of Rotoworld, ESPN, CBS or Yahoo. They all have great experts, articles and rankings that should help you out.

    I recommend rotoworld forums as they are very active and a lot of people comment on a lot of players. There are player threads in one section, and another section where you can ask about your league. What I like about it compared to many others is that they are just like us - regular fantasy players (some more hardcore than others) helping each other. Similar to this site.

    Razzball can also give you some different perspectives but it is more article/ranking based, which a comment section on each article (with questions often not related to the article). I believe they have forums as well, but don't think they are very active.
