FSB Daily 3/29: Lots of Apps, Lots of Baseball

A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- AOL-owned fantasy commissioner site FleaFlicker now has a free iPhone app for team management and tracking. For a full introduction, allow me to present Fanhouse’s Tom Herrera.

- With baseball season drawing ever closer, The New York Times highlighted a few iPhone apps for baseball nuts and fantasy players: FanGraphs, RotoWire’s draft kit, iScore, K-ForCE, Yahoo!’s upcoming app and MLB’s At Bat 2010.

- The League of Alternate Baseball Realities is one of the best-known and longest-running “expert” fantasy leagues. The AL-only draft took place earlier this week, and here’s what each owner thought about his team afterward.

- This Wall Street Journal story tells about how the Michael Eisner-managed Topps company is revitalizing its sports-card sales with Attax, a game that incorporates some elements of fantasy.

- Nando Di Fino of The Wall Street Journal reports that Chris Carpenter boasted the highest winning percentage among owned baseball players in CBSSports.com’s 2009 fantasy leagues: 58.6 percent of teams that included Carpenter won their leagues.

- When SportingNews.com announced the end of its fantasy-games hosting, it also told users about a deal with CBSSports.com to host leagues at half-price ($90 instead of $180). CBS has also partnered with BleacherReport.com to offer the same deal via that site.

- Gentlemen (and ladies) for some reason, Zazzle.com thinks you might be interested in this overpriced, fantasy-themed toilet paper.
