Fantasy Baseball Week 3: 3 Up, 3 Down

5 Hitters I Couldn’t Avoid Drafting In 2014

Sadly my Fantasy Baseball Draft season is over, and after poring over my rosters, I found 5 hitters I couldn’t avoid drafting in 2014. There were actually more than five in many instances, but for the sake of this, I will pick out the five players who made most of my Fantasy Baseball squads this season. When enacting the draft...
