Fantasy Baseball Scene in Knocked Up

As preparation should just now be kicking in for your fantasy baseball auction or draft (it really should be an auction), take a moment to enjoy one of the great fantasy sports movie moments. This scene from the movie Knocked Up should really be in the Fantasy Sports Hall Of Fame.

For context, the Leslie Mann character thinks the Paul Rudd character is cheating on her. But it's worse, he's playing fantasy baseball and lying to his wife about it.



Beyond it's general awesomeness, there are two particular aspects of this scene that I love. First, I love the jerk sitting next to the Paul Rudd character. Every draft has this jerk and often I am that guy. Second, it's when Rudd says "I got Matsui".

Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late. Of course, few battle plans survive the actual war. Here are the results:
