Fantasy baseball is an opportunity cost sport. With every player taken off of your war room board, there is an expectation of what you as owner will get in return for your investment.
Players like Ryan Braun and Roy Halladay have remarkably consistent track records. The upside and downside of these types of players create a very narrow gap meaning that you know what you’re going to get for the most part.
