Looking at Rangers, Mariners 

December, 20, 2006
I'm seeing more fantasy baseball e-mail in the feedback box around the holidays, generally because in most fantasy football leagues, only two teams are left! So even in December, even before Christmas, we're talking about Eric Gagne, J.D. Drew, Ryan Klesko and other players on the move.

I think that's terrific, personally. In fact, our own Tristan Cockcroft has already participated in a few fantasy baseball drafts. Yes, it's a sickness, but it's a nice one to have, isn't it? I would have accepted the invitation to draft, but this fantasy football stuff keeps getting in the way! Anyway, Tristan and I think alike when it comes to drafting, getting a good balance of stars and sleepers, going heavy on the offense and stealing pitchers like Ervin Santana, Kevin Millwood and Daniel Cabrera late, or for cheap prices.
