While my record has sank to 3-3 in the Great Fantasy Debate I think I've cranked out some of my better posts recently. It's been tough to invest a ton of time in it with fantasy baseball season in full swing but I think I'm still a contender to win the contest.
Here are summaries with links to my last 3 posts;
We were asked to come up with our all time baseball top 10 list. Keeping in line with a modest fantasy slant I went with a top 10 'never was' list. It included Negro League greats like Satchel Paige, other international players and even some fictitious ones like the Bad New Bears Kelly Leak and Sid Finch. This may have been the most fun I've ever had writing a baseball blog post. Maybe I'll come back to it in the offseason with a deeper dive on all 10 players.
The question was to come up with my all time fantasy baseball team - I can't help but think that my all time never was team from week 7 had some inspiration. I took the approach of career stats rather than 1 season wonders which many other writers did.
If you're middle of the road or worse in your fantasy league how do you climb back into it? My advice is to play like you're already dead and go out and get the big-time underperformers now! David Ortiz, Joses Reyes, and to an extend Jake Peavey are the guys to roll the dice on.
Remember, VOTE FOR GREG!!!
