Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide Testimonials

As you may have seen, we released the inaugural FantasyTrade411 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide a few weeks ago. The feedback has been overwhelmingly humbling and we wanted to share some of that with you in the hopes of convincing you to pick up the draft guide if you haven’t already. We’ve posted a few previews to give you a taste of what’s in the guide, but if you’re still waffling on whether or not you should buy it, hopefully some of the testimonials we’ve received will help convince you that it’s worth the price of admission:

 

Friend of FantasyTrade411, Adam Richman (of Travel Channel fame) was kind enough to give us a recommendation…

 

My friend @ helped me much during my 1st fantasy US football season. Here’s his baseball guide: http://t.co/Idbn3IfE Enjoy!

The 2013 FantasyTrade411 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide: it’s as awesome as Christmas (thanks Oatz!)

 

If that’s not enough to convince you, I don’t know what else to say except that I’m glad I don’t work in sales. If it IS enough to convince you, here’s a link where you can check out the full list of what’s in the guide and read a quick explanation of your purchasing options (one of which is a GREAT deal for first-time FanDuel customers).

 

PS – if you’ve purchased the draft guide and want your testimonial included on this list, please feel free to send me a tweet or email (FantasyTrade411@gmail.com) and I’ll be more than happy to include you.

Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide Preview: “Freshman Orientation”

As most of you have seen on Twitter, we released the 2013 FantasyTrade411 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide right before Valentine’s day. The positive response has been absolutely overwhelming (and humbling), but I’ve also had some folks understandably ask for a preview of the guide before they spend their well-earned $9.99. Don’t worry…I don’t blame you. I waffle before I make a purchase all the time.

 

To help you make your decision(and hopefully sway you to the dark side), I’m going to start releasing a quick preview of each piece that we have in the draft guide over the next few weeks. We have a full list of what’s in the guide over on the site, but today’s preview is an awesome piece by our own Travis Rowe (also of GoProFantasySports) called, “Freshman Orientation”.

 

I’ve had a lot of folks on Twitter tell me that they’re really interested in trying out fantasy baseball, but they feel like the learning curve is too steep. I don’t blame them for feeling like that (since fantasy baseball is a lot more daunting than fantasy football), but Travis Rowe had put together a GREAT article to get any fantasy baseball newbie into the game. Travis did a great job of outlining all the basics for you in a very engaging (and humorous) way and even gives you some great external sources for extra “suggested reading”. If you’ve ever wanted to try fantasy baseball but felt in over your head, this article is just for you! Here’s a quick screenshot of Travis’ Freshman Orientation piece and there is another page and a half more pages of this article that go along with the preview below:

 

Freshman Orientation

 

I hope you enjoyed that quick preview, and again…there are four and a half more pages of that article in the draft guide, along with 134 more pages that you can read about here. And if you’ve ever wanted to try daily gaming, we’re also offering a special deal for first-time FanDuel customers that gives you $10 free on FanDuel along with the purchase of the draft guide!

Fantasy Baseball: The Draft Guide Is Almost Here!

Jessie Spano isn't the only one who is so excited!

We’ve reached epic Jessie Spano-style levels of excitement, here!

A couple weeks ago, I tweeted out that we’d have a big post-Super Bowl Announcement.

 

Well, last I checked it is now “post-Super Bowl” and if nothing else…I’m a man of my word (sort of).

 

I’m not going to spill the beans entirely just yet, but our 2013 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide will be published early next week and we’ve partnered up with FanDuel to distribute the guide!

 

I’ll provide more details on the FanDuel partnership (and what it means to you) over the next few days, but in the meantime, I wanted to give you all a sneak-peak of what’s to come in the draft guide later this week.

Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide

Sound familiar?

Sound familiar?

We still have one more week of football left, but me and the guys here at FantasyTrade411.com have been champing at the bit to get started on our upcoming Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide since Rex Ryan started contemplating keeping Tim Tebow on the bench all season (so basically since August).

 

We’re already underway with our rankings, player previews, articles, mock draft preparations (and everything else the draft guide will entail), but I wanted to give you guys a sneak-peak at something I’m really excited about — and potentially give you a chance to participate in the draft guide.

 

Just like a lot of draft guides do, we’ll be putting team-by-team previews together, but we’re going to do something a little different and have those team previews written by a fan of that team (a few of these fans are some of your favorite fantasy writers and a few of these fans are going to be some of you!). We’re shooting to have our draft guide ready by the beginning of February and I’ll be releasing the writer of one team preview each day up until the release of our draft guide (see below).

 

I’ll let you guys know how you’ll be able to pre-order your copy soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this living-breathing list  and keep back checking daily to see who’s been added to it.
