About Patrick Kelley - The A.L. Maharishi

Patrick Kelleythe Maharishi (teacher of mystical knowledge) of the American League, started writing for The Fantasy Man in March 2010. Preparing for his main AL only auction keeper league, he stumbled across The Fantasy Man and enjoyed his content and overall flow (not sharing this info with his buddies though, keeping the edge The Fantasy Man gives for himself).

Patrick has been addicted to fantasy baseball since the early 90’s. In 1993, he and his best friend David started the Metropolitan Rotiserrie Baseball League (MRBL) and it began a slow descent into addiction and insanity. In the early days before websites and stat services, they would do the stats by hand, waiting for the paper on Sunday mornings and then spending the next 4-5 hours doing the weekly stats/standings (insanity). Since 1993, they've grown the league and built something that has lasted longer than most relationships as the MRBL has remained a constant.

As Patrick's addiction grew along with the internet, so did the amount of leagues he participated in. This year he'll participate in 6 leagues (don’t tell his wife), but the MRBL is the one who holds his gaze. 2009 was a good year as he won the title for the 5th time…He calls 2009..... "the drive for 5"! 2010.... He's the "pick for 6"!

Being from Minneapolis, Patrick says he's definitely an American League guy. Go Twins!

Patrick is looking forward to partnering more with The Fantasy Man and his great content in 2010 and would like to leave you with a great quote by Roger Hornsby…

“People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”—Rogers Hornsby
