    Hey all: I got this e-mail from Sporting News today. Personally, I think this is big trouble for Sporting News... I don't know how popular their games are, but this reeks that they don't have the prize money to pay out this year. I'll post the letter and hang up and listen.

    Dear Valued Fantasy Baseball Player,

    Due to a shift in our core business strategy, SportingNews.com will no longer offer fantasy baseball games. The fantasy industry is changing, and we feel it's best to devote our resources to providing the best fantasy content and advice on the internet, and beyond. We believe SportingNews.com's fantasy content, tools and advice are already best in class, and over the next few months, we will completely redesign the Fantasy Source section of our site to deliver a new and improved user experience. With this shift in strategy, we will dedicate our entire fantasy staff to building Fantasy Source into the number one destination for fantasy information, accessible via internet, mobile devices, and other new technologies.

    The SportingNews.com fantasy staff shares and understands the disappointment that comes with this decision. We realize that the Sporting News community of fantasy players is extremely competitive and appreciate that many of our members have been asking about our fantasy baseball games and delaying their leagues, waiting for our launch. In an effort to show our appreciation to you, our loyal customer, we have partnered with CBSSports.com to allow you to create a Baseball Commissioner League, for free, during the 2010 season. Simply click here to sign up. You must use this link to receive your one free league, a $179.99 value.

    If the sign up link does not work, copy and paste this URL into your browser:

    Please be assured that this decision was not taken lightly and we truly believe this is the beginning of great things for us in the fantasy content environment. If you haven't already, we hope you will check out Fantasy Source. We will continue to provide fantasy players with the same great content and add many new and improved features.

    Finally, for those of you with outstanding site credits, we are in the process of setting up a way for you to convert those into other Sporting News products or cash. We will be contacting you shortly. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach us at fantasygames@sportingnews.com.
