Fantasy baseball can be very, very easy. If you’re playing in an eight or ten team league then you really are just choosing the best of the best players to fill out your roster.
If you happen to play in a more challenging format such as a 14-teamer or larger, or perhaps even an AL-only or NL-only league then things get a little tougher. In terms of filling out a roster you simply cannot go just off rankings and who’s the starter. It is only in one of these leagues that the Oakland Athletics infield even matters.
