Baseball is back: players are flashing the leather, batters are hitting HRs farther than you can run without passing out, you're happily paying stadium prices for tubed meats, and your Twitter account is experiencing a deluge inexplicable managerial quotes.
Back by popular demand, DraftStreet is bringing you a one-night-only, exclusive, $500 freeroll that you can play even while watching your guaranteed 90-win team take a beating—hey, it's only May, right? Just sign up here for the Deadspin league, assemble the best team without going over $100,000, and you could win one of the 9 payouts.
- Rookie outfielder Bryce Harper is going for $5,562—a steal.
- Carlos Zambrano has switched teams and it's done him some good. Start him tonight for $11,023.
- Put Albert Pujols at first base for only $6,386, even though he hasn't homered yet this year.
