The Answer Man
I get tons of e-mails as a result of this blog. It's a wonderful thing. In fact, it might be the thing I enjoy most about doing this.
A lot of the e-mails are specific questions related to specific baseball topics. And a large portion of those are fantasy baseball-related. The problem is that I don't always have time to answer something like that.
I try to personally respond to as many e-mails as possible, but with my various writing gigs and school and whatever kind of "social life" a guy who sits in his room typing baseball articles all day has, I usually don't have time to answer a question about which #5 starter is a better bet to pick up off waivers.
However, for those of you who have sent those types of questions to me, I have some good news. Over at The Hardball Times, my good buddy Ben Jacobs is going to be doing a "Fantasy Mailbag" column each and every week. Lots of quality questions to choose from is essential to a column like that, so I am counting on you, my mass e-mailing, fantasy-question-asking readers to help out.
If you've got a fantasy baseball question (or 10), big or small, Ben is the man to contact. All you have to do is click here to e-mail him.

Texas (Park) +180 over Anaheim (Colon)
