Barrie, Ontario, December 18, 2012 — The Dear Mr. Fantasy baseball podcast has announced the addition of a free weekly dispute resolution service for its audience. Joining with Fantasy Judgment, a professional fantasy league dispute resolution service, the program is offering a weekly segment to settle disputes involving any number of issues.
With fantasy sports growing in popularity annually, there has been an increasing need for a dispute resolution service worldwide. Fantasy sports now account for approximately $4 billion in annual economic impact across the sports industry.
The Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast began in January 2012 with Chris McBrien hosting the show. A permanent co-host was introduced in May 2012 with the addition of the ‘Fantasy Doctor’, an anonymous baseball injury expert. A partnership with the ‘Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks’ website was announced in the fall of 2012 to further increase the scope of the weekly program.
“We’re thrilled to integrate this new service into the format of the show”, states Chris McBrien, founder and co-host of the Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast. “By teaming up with Fantasy Judgment, we are now offering a chance for more people to get onto the show and get their disputes solved in the process. Our motto is to ‘Put the Fan in Fantasy Baseball’ and this further helps to achieve our goal”.
Fantasy team owners can continue to use the Fantasy Judgment service to solve their disputes for a small fee but if they contact the hosts of the show, they now have a chance to get their dispute addressed on-air and resolved for free.
“I am very pleased that Fantasy Judgment is forming a partnership with the team at Dear Mr. Fantasy”, states Michael Stein, Owner of Fantasy Judgment. “This alliance will help Fantasy Judgment reach a large audience of passionate fantasy baseball players and provide them with a forum to help solve any disputes or issues in their leagues. Our mission is to help maintain the integrity of fantasy sports leagues, and teaming up with Chris McBrien and the Fantasy Doctor will go a long way towards fulfilling those goals”.
People can reach the hosts via Twitter @cmcbrien or @TheFantasyDR or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The podcast is recorded weekly on Monday nights and is available through a wide range of podcast channels including iTunes, Podcast Pickle, MirPod and Podcast Alley, just to name a few.
