Fantasy 411 Q&A: March 11, 2009
Who said the World Baseball Classic wouldn’t be a must watch? Some great games so far, especially USA vs Canada and of course the two Netherlands vs Dominican Republic games. What a disaster for the D.R. A team full of MLB All-Stars falls once again, their offense silenced.
Anyway, how does this relate to fantasy? I view this upset as good news for owners of Reyes, Hanley, Cano and company. Now they get to go back to their respective teams and focus on the season. I never like the idea of my fantasy stud playing all out in an exhibition (no matter how intense it is) in the middle of Spring Training. I just think it throws their preparation off and could lead to an early injury.
Lastly, I wanted to formally announce that Pitch or Ditch will be found exclusively on the blog this season. In addition to the daily posts, you’ll find a Pitch or Ditch post each afternoon. I’ll list my picks and Mike, Cory, and others can chime in and say how much they disagree with me:-)
Let’s get to your questions.
