A chiller version of fantasy baseball

Is there a more relaxed version of fantasy baseball -- preferably one that I can just play online without organizing a league among my acquaintances?

I've never played any fantasy sports before, but I feel like this year is the year to start -- I'm hoping I'll learn something about a team other than the Red Sox. But from what I've heard, baseball is the most intense of fantasy sports, partly because there are more players, games, and stats, but also just because it attracts obsessives.
I'm afraid of obsessives. I'm basically just looking for a stake in lots of different games. I also don't really want to organize a league among people I know; there's not that much interest and I'd rather lose in private. Is there a service that will let me make some kind of fantasy team, without requiring a gang of preexisting friends, and doesn't absolutely require me to learn about all the minutiae (although it's nice if the option is there)? Bonus points if the interface is pretty; I want it to be fun to check in on my team.
(also: i'm not willing to bet real money.)
