Cool article...which is pretty much dead-on with all you fantasy junkies...

Some highlights..

You can pick out new cabinets in three minutes, but it takes you three hours to decide whether you should add Jeff Francoeur or Gary Matthews Jr. to your roster.

Your idea of a good MLB manager is one who gives all base runners the green light 100% of the time and never, ever gives any of his starters a day off.

When you hear the word ''busts,'' the picture that pops into your mind is not of Pamela Anderson but of Adrian Beltre.

You are a notorious procrastinator. You show up to work around 9:30 (give or take an hour) and are generally five to ten minutes late for appointments. However, in eight years of playing fantasy sports, you've maybe missed the deadline to set your roster once.

At a family gathering, you find yourself boasting to your grandmother about how you snagged Morgan Ensberg in the 12th round.

The phrase ''core competencies'' twists your tongue, but ''Runelvys'' rolls right off of it.

You think Scott Podsednik is a Hall of Famer.



classic... :-b ;-D

How about ...

You think Jose Reyes will hit in 56 straight games .. :*)

You set your alarm for 3:35am so you can adjust your Yahoo fantasy team for the day.
