I’ve been writing about fantasy baseball since 1993, first as a correspondent for Alex Patton’s books, then Les Leopold brought me on to do projections for Peter Golenbock’s How to Win at Rotisserie Baseball books. My projections were the first fantasy baseball content on ESPN.com, posted its inaugural week in 1995.
I wrote Ask Rotoman weekly and Rotoman’s Spring Training Trip (30 Columns in 30 Days from 30 Florida Baseball Towns) for ESPN through 1998. The summer of 1999 I was the fantasy guy at Baseball Prospectus, and later that year launched (at the behest of publisher Barry Rosenbloom) The Fantasy Baseball Guide. The first Fantasy Football Guide followed the next summer.
I was a columnist at mlb.com for many years. Since 2000 I’ve been editor-in-chief of the Guides. I provide projections and bid prices for Patton $ Software and Data, and am a contributor to pattonandco.com, an excellent website for player commenting and discussion. I am also a member of the Tout Wars LLC.
I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my wife, the writer Elizabeth Royte, and our daughter Lucinda.
