This year, ten members of the New York Mets blog Rising Apple will compete for bragging rights to determine who is the best at fantasy baseball.
We here at Rising Apple like to have our fair share of fun. From giving looks back to iconic teams in New York Mets history to envisioning ourselves as the general manager making moves in the offseason, it’s safe to say we love the game and love this team.
That is why it is my pleasure to introduce you to the Rising Apple Fantasy League, a fantasy baseball league pitting your favorite Rising Apple contributors against one another. Throughout the season, we will bring you updates on standings and key matchups from time to time as we push toward the postseason.
Word has it that the winner gets a random baseball card from Tim Boyle’s personal collection. Without further ado, here is a look at the divisions and a brief rundown of the draft results heading into Opening Day.
East (Piazza) Division
West (Seaver) Division
Other Mets notables drafted were Noah Syndergaard (Round 3 by Meet deMets, who also took Bryce Harper at the end of Round 2), Edwin Diaz and Michael Conforto (Rounds 4 and 5, respectively, by Treez in the Rainforest). Team Confortnite, somewhat surprisingly, drafted Jason Vargas in the 25th and final round, while the final pick in the draft was used by Treez in the Rainforest on Michael Pineda of the Minnesota Twins.
