***The Baseballholics Anonymous Fantasy Auction League has arrived!***

We've turned entry into a game this year, so if interested then please follow these instructions.

[those who submit an entry MUST be able to participate in the auction, scheduled for Sunday, March 27, at 5:30 PT / 8:30 ET]

A. Occam's Razor

B. Read Between the Lies

C. Who Done It?
