The MLB offseason is very young — and hasn’t even started for every team — but the Phillies have already made one strong non-move. After firing assistant general manager and director of amateur scouting Marti Wolever, Todd Zolecki is reporting that the entire Phillies coaching staff will return, intact, in 2015.

The Phillies had already announced last month that they invited the whole staff to return, but just said today that each coach has accepted that offer and is “signed through next season.” We might not know who the first baseman or any of the outfielders will be, but Ruben Amaro will be your GM, Ryne Sandberg will be your manager, and the rest of the coaching staff (Larry Bowa, Bob McClure, Steve Henderson, Juan Samuel, Pete Mackanin, Rod Nichols, and John Mizerock) will remain at their posts.

Draft Kings’ Rolls out a Two Dollar League This Week to Win Your Share of $100,000

Free 100k 300x250

After a few millionaire leagues, where you could assemble your best team for under $30 and take a chance at winning a million dollars, Draft Kings are running league with a much cheaper buy-in this week. The week nine NFL $100K Play Action League works much like the millionaire leagues. You still pick your team (1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex and 1 D/ST) using salary cap style drafting, the top 11,500 still win money, and if you’re a first time depositor Draft Kings still gives you a 100% bonus up to $600. This league’s entry fee, however, is much lower than the millionaire leagues’ $27 at the low price of $2. Plus, if you deposit $5, that $2 fee is waived so you can spread that $5 further amongst other games. And that $2 (or $5) can win you up to $10,000.

Once again, the players you can select come from Sunday’s 1 P.M. games onwards (thus discounting the Saints and Panthers), and you can pick your roster before depositing any money and do so all the way up to that 1 P.M. deadline. Start picking your team over here, and good luck.

Time Is Running out to Sign up for Draft Kings’ Week 7 Millionaire League

HURRY UP! TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

That lede is for the people coming across this post on Sunday morning. Everyone else can take their time a bit, since your team isn’t due until Sunday at 1 P.M. But if it’s currently Sunday at 11:30 A.M…. man, you gotta hurry.

Once again, Draft Kings is offering you a chance to bet on yourself and win big in another Millionaire League. You won’t have the Eagles to watch or care about, so why not throw a team together with a $27 deposit and try to bring home some BIG MONEY? All you have to do it pick your team using the given salary cap — team consists of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense — make your deposit, wait, and watch. The top 15,500 finishers bring home cash, and the first place winner gets $1,000,000 of the total $2,000,000 prize pool. And if it’s your first time playing, Draft Kings will give you a 100% bonus on your deposit up to $600.

It’s all really quite simple, and addictively fun. PICK YOUR TEAM, and then be sure to download the Draft Kings app, because you’re going to be obsessively checking it on Sunday. [Editor's note: May I recommend Red Zone and the Draft Kings app for you?]

PICK YOUR TEAM

Good luck, readers.

Week 7 Brings Draft Kings’ Next Millionaire League

win1Mil_1024x768_millioinaireMaker2 copy

It’s time for another Draft Kings Millionaire League, their third one of the season, but the first during a week when you don’t have any Eagles football to watch and get invested in. Add to that the fact that your fantasy team is probably so injury ridden that you can barely put a lineup together, and what is there to make you really care about the NFL this weekend? How about the chance at winning a ton of money.

As in past weeks, you’ll need to pick a team consisting of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense, with a deposit of just $27. That $27 enters your lineup into the running for a prize pool that consists of over $2,000,000 with a first place prize of $1,000,000. The rest of the details:

– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 19th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

The whole process takes about five minutes, and you don’t have to actually pay your deposit before putting your team together. You’ve got until the 1 P.M. games start on Sunday to make your lineup and put your money down — which disqualifies Jets and Patriots players, no big deal — and try to win that big money. You can PICK YOUR TEAM right now and cross your fingers harder than you ever have before.

Jonathan Papelbon, who, like everything else from Mississippi, is terrible, was the guest picker on College GameDay today, and indeed, he looked and acted like a douche.

Honestly? I’m surprised he didn’t grab himself and pick “DEEZ NUTS” as the winner. Some Vines after the jump. Continue reading

We’ve told you before here how easy it is to enter into the Draft Kings Millionaire League. We’ve told you how simple it is and about the insane prizes you can win with just a small deposit. But now we want to show you what someone winning over $1 million on Draft Kings looks like, in real time, on Twitter:

That kid right there walked away from last week’s Millionaire League a whole lot richer, and all he did was pick a team — made up of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense — choosing players from Sunday’s and Monday’s games, and deposited $27 per lineup. And he wasn’t the only winner. His money came from a prize pool of over $2,000,000, where the top 15,500 lineups win money. The entry fee is only $27, and first time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600. They make it real easy and hassle free, so you can do all the stressing after you pick your team. And you don’t even have to deposit first to pick your lineup, so you can fiddle around with the whole thing commitment-free. Go ahead and PICK YOUR TEAM before the early games start on Sunday, and who knows, maybe we’ll be posting your Tweets next time.

Draft Kings’ Second Millionaire League of the Season is Coming This Weekend

win1Mil_1024x768_millioinaireMaker2 copy

The people at Draft Kings rolled out their first millionaire league of the season last week — and the tweet of the winner, a new millionaire, was just about perfect — and this week, they’re doing another. Just like last week’s challenge (and the non-millionaire ones before it), you can pick anyone from this week’s matchups, excluding Thursday night, and put your best lineup together under a set salary cap. You’ll pick one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense, and with an entry of just $27, you can win your share of a gigantic prize pool:

– $2,200,000 prize pool.
– First place wins $1,000,000
– $27 entry fee.
– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 12th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

For less than $30, you can put your best lineup together and take a chance at winning some very real, very big money. You can throw your team together in five minutes or take a few days to mull it over, but once 1 P.M. Sunday rolls around, it’s all up to the guys you picked. You can even pick multiple lineups if you want to up your chances. You just have to CREATE YOUR TEAM. You can get to picking your team (and second guessing yourself) right over here.

Draft Kings, who have already brought us a week one fantasy challenge worth some real money, are stepping it up big time with their first of four millionaire leagues for the year. Just like the previous challenge, you can pick anyone from week’s matchups — excluding Thursday night football — and put a team together under the set salary cap. You’ll pick one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense. But the best part is with an entry of $27, you can win you share of a huge prize pool:

– $2,200,000 prize pool.
– First place wins $1,000,000
– $27 entry fee.
– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 5th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

For under $30, you can take a real shot at winning some very serious money, and the whole thing takes less time than it probably took to read this post. You just have to CREATE YOUR TEAM. You can get to picking your team (and already get nervous about who you picked) right over here.
