Mike Napoli Sizzles While Fantasy Owners Get Burned
by Moonlight Graham
Think back to last year’s Fantasy Baseball Draft when you sat at the table clicking your heels, hoping for Geovany Soto to get through to the round in which you had him slotted. Coming off a season so stellar that he garnered the Rookie of the Year award, Soto was even more enticing to Fantasy Baseball owners because his 23 HR and 86 RBI came from behind the plate; traditionally the weakest Fantasy spot. But like many before him, (remember Rick Wilkins?), Soto failed to build on his initial success. Instead of the 30-100 season many expected, his was an injury riddled exercise in disappointment.
