I've Lost My Fantasy Baseball Virginity

While gaining the useless piece of paper that is my degree from a local Long Island college, I picked up Baseball Mogul. Via Baseball Mogul, and due to a friend being in the quags of the system, I delved into the minor leagues and the draft. Much like astrophysics, sabermetrics and those funky acid-trip pitchfx graphs dazzle me, but for the life of me I can only grasp the Dummies version. For whatever reason though, Fantasy Baseball always escaped me. In a sad bit of tragic humor, it took being stuck in front of a computer again, in desperate need to waste time to break into Fantasy. Here is my first team, give me some much needed sage-like roto wisdom.
