Hang in there, the fantasy baseball season isn't over yet.
With NFL preseason games kicking off, fantasy football is threatening to steal the show. Don't be one of those fools who abandon their baseball duties to flock to football draft preparation.
Your baseball squad still has lineups to set for actual games that count. And for all the hard-hitting fun football offers, your baseball title won't be determined by a fickle kicker. (But thanks again, Blair Walsh, for carrying my sorry team to an unlikely second-place finish last year.)
There are no breaks in fantasy baseball. You don't get six days to decipher the best matchups since each passing page off the calendar begets a new slate of MLB action. It's an often grueling pest, but it's what makes fantasy baseball the true test of warriors, or people who enjoy baseball and numbers with frequent time to spend online.
So before waxing too much poetic about this beautiful game of ours, it's time to comb through this week's list of probable pitchers to investigate some tough roster decisions managers have to make for their pitching staff.
A couple of old pals come back to town, some youngsters test their true merit and a couple of fallen aces attempt to climb back into fantasy relevance. Sounds like my idea of fun.
