Call To The Pen

posted by 3FingersBrown
Hi everyone, my name's Andre (aka 3FingersBrown) and I'm the newest contributor to Advanced Fantasy Baseball. Jon was kind enough to pick me up off of the waiver wire and give me an opportunity to share my baseball insights and observations with you and I hope you'll find what I have to say useful and entertaining.

I've been involved with fantasy baseball for six years but I've been playing baseball simulations since the mid-80's, be it through pen and paper games like Strat-o-matic or computer sims such as Micro League Baseball and Earl Weaver.

As long as I can remember baseball has been an obsession. From the moment I gripped a bat, to the day I opened the cover of "Moneyball," my passion for the game has only grown over the years. As I've gotten deeper into fantasy baseball and begun reading more advanced statistical analysis, I have begun to focus my writing on my favorite sport, ultimately starting my own baseball blog, Three True Outcomes.

Currently I'm playing in two leagues. One is a 5x5, 15-team mixed roto league, that counts OBP instead of AVG and features NFBC style rosters. My home league, which drafts live, is a 6x6 (standard 5x5 plus OBP and QS) 12-team mixed keeper league. Now in it's fourth year, I'm coming off a championship season in 2009 and I have my eyes set on a repeat performance.

I have a background in the film and television industry, where I've worked in a number of different roles over the years. I'm also a freelance writer with work in a variety of subjects such as music, film and pop-culture essays, commercial copy and screen-writing. One of the die-hard Flushing Faithful, I'm holding out hope that this is the year that the Mets finally return to championship glory after a 24 year drought.

I'll be posting on a number of different baseball-related topics such as in-depth player profiles, prospects, advanced statistical analysis, fantasy strategy and more. With all that said, I'm looking forward to continuing the endless narrative that our great American pastime provides - so lets Play ball!
