We Blangraphs editors have to admit something, and it might come as a surprise: we don't write for this blog full time. Over the past few years, we have spent the hours between posts here as educators and scientists, furthering knowledge and helping people.
Finally, we can leave that dead-end gig behind and win our living on Blanduel™, the convenient alternative to those annoying, time consuming daily fantasy games!
We are going to get to coverage of the MLB postseason in a second, but we need to tell you more about Blanduel first. You won't regret reading a single word.
Besting our buddies in fantasy sports was always close to our hearts. We reveled in weekends of reaping cash harvests from daily fantasy games. But all the picking and clicking became tiring and overwhelming. The weekend-long commitment started to feel less like a freewheeling rush, and more like a dull chore. If only we could be unchained from this monotony that we used to call fun.
Along came Blanduel™.
If the big weekend fantasy sites were a jolt of epinephrine, then Blanduel™ is a 200,000 volts of an electrical plasma made of pure excitement. Instead of doing all the tedious work of picking the best players and filling out a "roster" (what are we, stats nerds?), you just pick a Blanduel Certified Genius™ who can make all the picks for you. Then you join one of our game lobbies and get ready to win!
News outlets are raving about Blanduel™!!! Come deposit your and make your own "blatant cash grab" (Wall Street Journal), and have so much fun that "[i]t's just really, really unfair." (Consumer Reports).
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
1) SEND BLANDUEL YOUR MONEY (unmarked, non-sequential bills should be sent to Blanduel™ in an ordinary white envelope addressed "Dear Grandma")
2) EXPERTS PICK WINNERS FOR YOU (No need to do all the annoying picks yourself. Don't worry, you'll still have bragging rights over your bros when you win!)
3) WE LET YOU KNOW WHEN YOU WIN (Heck yeah!)
... Anyway, we have been spending a lot of our time on that fun activity lately. But I think we made our point.
On to our postseason coverage!
Obviously, the big story from yesterday is Chase Utley. All of the major media sites, the twitter galaxy, and folks at just about every bus stop in the country were debating and deliberating over the same question: is he a good pick for Blanduel™ Postseason Platinum™? This may be controversial, or "old school", but we say yes. Utley is a sneaky play for some Blantasy Points™ that can give you the edge over your friends.
Another hot topic is the Chicago Cubs. Jake Arrieta has been absolutely unreal, as his Blanduel™ owners know, and his leadership might be just enough to get the Cubbies past the Official Blanduel™ Goat Curse. Maybe there's magic in the Blanduel™ Get Some Green™ Ivy in Wrigley Field!
And a special thank you to all of our international viewers!
