Atch wits by building their own teams In Sam Walker Fantasyland A ePUB #10003 a A Sportswriter's Obsessive Bid to eBook #199 sports columnist for the Wall Street Journal decided to explore this phenomenon by talking his way into Tout. I liked Fantasyland I am a big baseball fan and a somewhat serious fantasy baseball player though nothing on the level of what Sam Walker discusses in this book Fantasyland is an adventure through Walker's first season playing Rotisserie fantasy baseball He joins the Tout Wars league an experts' league that is populated by some of the most prominent fantasy baseball players in the world Walker must learn about the Rotisserie game and determine what his strategy and identity will be in this league He goes to oftentimes ridiculous lengths to try to secure an advantage on his league mates; he attends the spring trainings of most AL teams this is an AL only league he hires two employees to aid him throughout the season and he approaches a multitude of players coaches and front office types to try to coax insider information from them I wouldn't say that much of the book is particularly humorous but Walker's willingness to put himself out there and potentially look like an idiot is endearing I can see how some readers may be turned off by how gimmicky some of his antics are but I think most will agree with me Walker chronicles his descent into fantasy addiction telling how his mood shifts with the performance of his team Any serious fantasy player can likely relate to those types of mood swings and the addictive nature of the hobby His discussions of trade negotiations and psychology are entertaining too I generally think that both the baseball expert and baseball novice can find some entertainment value in this book Walker will not blow you away with any novel statistical analysis or approach but serious fantasy players will appreciate how uickly he becomes addicted to the hobby Baseball novices can hopefully appreciate why those that they may denigrate as fantasy nerds are so entrenched in their favorite hobby
