You want a chance to beat me in a one day fantasy baseball game? Not only will you get the opportunity to down me in the challenge, you'll also get a chance to make some money in the process, so what do you have to lose? Here's how it works.
HOW DO YOU SIGN UP?
You go to Draftstreet.com and sign up (if you're already signed up you simply join the BaseballGuys league). It won't take more than two minutes to sign up and its 100% FREE.

Once signed up you'll get a chance to choose your roster of players for FRIDAY AUGUST 19th. That is the day that the contest will run – this Friday.
HOW DO YOU CONSTRUCT YOUR TEAM?
You get a salary cap of $100,000 dollars. Are you going to go big on the hill and spend $8,431 on Joey Votto at first or are you going to try and hit it big with the streaking Mike Carp who is cheaper at $7,648? You choose your team for the one day contest, and your off.
