Another Edition of the Hot Stove Junkie

posted by Unknown

The latest edition of my Hot Stove Junkie column on has been posted. It is positively loaded with info this week. Please, check it out. is blowing up big time. Our acquisition of the Diamond Draft Fantasy Baseball Software is huge for us. Everyone should head over to the Diamond Draft site and download the free trial software. There are also going to be opportunities for the blogging community to take advantage of our success. Watch this spot for details...coming soon!

The Winter Meetings were a huge success from the perspective of a Hot Stove Junkie. I suppose when you are as hooked as I am that the latest hit is always the sweetest. The last day of the Winter Meetings featured the Rule V Draft – this is never to be ignored by fantasy owners unless they do not care to discover the next Johan Santana (LHP, NYM). The Major League Phase is reproduced below. However, the end of the meetings did not bring an end to the rumors, the speculation, or the trades and signings. In fact, the recent non-tender deadline just released a completely new crop of free agents into the pool. There were some very interesting and productive players set free to negotiate with the team of their choice. All 42 of the new free agents are listed below.
