Grumpy Old Men Don't Enjoy Fantasy Baseball

I'm personally not a fantasy baseball player (fantasy football is another story), but I have to laugh at these guys actually getting upset by what someone else does with their time.

I don't have a problem with people playing fantasy baseball. My issue is that it makes people think that what they learn in fantasy baseball applies to the real game. In other words, they assume you need a fantasy lineup to win, and their perceptions of value are skewed by the measurements that mean fantasy success.

Fantasy baseball has created more idiotic analysis of the sport than any other factor. People write blogs with the unspoken assumption that what's good in fantasy baseball is good in the real sport.

Chuck--that I agree with. A guy who hits 30 HRs is a fantasy god, even with a .750 OPS.

I'm a huge baseball fan, tried fantasy baseball once about 7 years ago...hated it.

Fantasy football, on the other hand...
