SLPL '17 SANTA LECHUGA POWER LEAGUE
The Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League In the Universe!

The 2107 SLPL Season Begins In a Week

You already know that there are a good $3,650 reasons to join the Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League in the Universe, the Santa Lechuga Power League. So with just a week before our 2017 season begins, it’s time to get your lineup ready. Here’s a handy-dandy tutorial for picking your roster. Use it and then send us your roster and pay before next Monday’s Big Opening Day.

Oh, and why dontchya recruit a few new owners while you’re at it? You get a free trade — up to three — for each new owner you recruit.

To get you in the mood, here’s a message from league vet Michael “Maddog” Skoien, who a few days ago sent us this timely reminder:

Given the turmoil the world is in it only fitting that Baseball season is soon here to give us a respite. That is what I need SLPL 2017 for and I need it soon! When do we start? Who can I send my money to??

Also, found this quote from "Field of Dreams" today and it summarizes many of our feelings about baseball. Enjoy!!

Terence Mann: Ray, people will come, Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.

Props for the words, Maddog, you most-awesome veteran owner, you! And thank you for showing such enthusiasm for this dopey little league of ours where, by the way, we doled out 3,650 clams to league owners last season so, sure, we may be podunk but we somehow know how to dole out the clams. Just sayin’.

Everybody, we hope to see you in the league this season!
