About the Author
Hey I'm 43 years old from Kansas City and been a baseball geek...junkie....sad kid in the back with the calculator...since I can remember. I've read about every baseball book written and read several sabermetric publications every year. Before fantasy baseball there was Strat-o-matic (and still is) The best baseball teacher there is still. I've played Strat and other sims since I was 6 so don't be afraid to ask questions from that vein. I started the first Roto league in Kansas City history. I currently play in several sim, fantasy, online, face to face whatever turns me on at the moment. I am preparing for my first expert league. Between me and you nowhere are experts more overrated than fantasy baseball. I'm into numbers and do my research but frankly there has to be some gut feeling still in this hobby. I learned as much sitting next to the now deceased Joey Kuhel getting bombed at the Village Inn Lounge as I did reading the first Bill James Abstracts as a sophomore at Kansas University in the early 80's. I picked the Angels last year (2002) a lot on gut feel about the team chemistry along with numbers. I jumped off the Rick Ankiel boat fast as I saw no historical evidence he could come back from that particular problem, (In my non-fantasy world I'm a clinical therapist-so I had some inside info on the poor guy). So I will back my opinions up with stats/facts but I'm not afraid to shoot from the hip and gamble. Sometimes you win, sometimes you crash. I try and read from several sources never being married to any one method. I welcome your questions and comments. Please tell me the particulars of the league your playing in, i.e., size, single/combined, categories, keeper etc. Lets get it on!
