Fake Teams is taking a break from its relentless fantasy football posting to draw all fantasy baseball players' attention to the news surrounding Red Sox phenom rookie closer, Jonathan Papelbon.
From this morning's New York Times:
The risk that Papelbon was going to be moved from a $30 fantasy role to a $10 one as an unproven starting pitcher was a major consideration in any deal I explored with an eye towards next season.
Fortunately for me , I was aware of the risk. I hope those who bought Paplebon right before he was shutdown, but with the knowledge he would be a cheap closer in 2007, are doing OK.
