More than four months after Opening Day, the long, treacherous baseball season still runs rampant. As MLB squads prepare for a postseason run, fantasy baseball owners hope to accomplish the same result.

It seems like ages since we all assembled our predraft cheat sheets. Remember when the crisp spring air discharged a scent of endless possibilities? Those were the days when Danny Salazar and Gerrit Cole held the whole fantasy world in their hands. 

Now, many once-hopeful mangers have helplessly watched their fake teams sink into peril while others engage in the fight of their lives. Or they're just trying to sneak into third place to get their money back. Either works.

This is the time of year where fantasy fatigue strikes hardest. Owners have endured the daily grind of filing a lineup since April, and the summer sun is smiling, tempting them to shut down the computer and go outside. Not to mention this other popular sport that steals baseball's thunder.
