The return of fantasy baseball?

The year was 2001, I think. I started my fantasy baseball season a perfect 10-0, or something like that.

I was unbeatable, until I never won again that fantasy season. In a blink of an eye, my fantasy season went straight to hell.

Just like that, I was done with fantasy baseball. I haven't been back since, and because of that decision, my baseball knowledge has suffered.

Sure I keep up enough to know the mega-stars, the all-stars and most of the recognizable players in the majors. Lately, though, I'm finding out just how far behind I am in terms of fantasy baseball knowledge.

Prior to the Indians signing Casey Kotchman, I had never heard or seen him hit a baseball or field his corner at first base. Whatever he's accomplished in his major-league career, I've never knowingly seen Kotchman do any of it.

That kind of scared me when I thought about returning to fantasy baseball this season. Do I really want to re-learn baseball all over again? There's no other way to do it in the world of fantasy.

I'm thinking of getting back into it slowly, perhaps joining a free league this season, because I'm not prepared. Not by a long shot.

Should I jump back into the world of fantasy baseball?

Absolutely! There is no better way to get to know the players again than by following the stats sheets close (as fantasy baseball requires). I say jump back in! At the very least, you'll have some fun.
