Who's up for a game of Fantasy Feud?

If you've never caught the Fantasy Feud segment of Fantasy Baseball Today, you've been missing out. Al Melchior and I competed Thursday for pride, Twitter followers and a still undetermined sum of money that will miraculously coincide with whatever's on the floor of Adam Aizer's car. And wouldn't you know, as with any live show, cameras were there to catch it all.

As you might expect for someone who makes a living analyzing a game about a game, I like games. I've chronicled my love for board games in this very blog and don't mind admitting I've frittered away half-hour intervals of my life trying to outperform actual contestants on a multitude of game shows. So to get the chance to compete at one under the guise of Fantasy analysis is basically the most fun I could ever have on our set.

And I should think you'd enjoy it as well. It's kind of like watching MLB Network's Baseball IQ, except even more trivial since stats accumulated over a random interval have zero historical significance. But they matter to Fantasy owners. For instance (spoiler alert), finding out Adam LaRoche ranks among the MLB leaders in on-base percentage gives me even more confidence in him going forward.

On the first board, I'll admit we embarrassed ourselves. Some obvious names went unmentioned, and I wouldn't be surprised if most of the people playing along at home did better than us. We'll call it first-inning jitters. On the other two, though, I think we held our own. We didn't run the table or anything, but the players we missed are the same ones that make you step back and say, "Wow!"
