A Writer Discovered Fantasy Baseball in 1990

Dream teams – The Boston Globe

I could read roto reminisces all day long (and in fact on many days I do), and even this piece by Peter Keating didn’t get me to stop reading. But all sorts of red flags waved. This isn’t a lively or even very interesting history of roto, Keating relies on buckets of cliches to move the story along, and abandons his beknighted friends along the way. I mention it here because it’s proof that not all baseball writing pushes our receptive buttons, even if I could read it all day long.
