Should You Go to Forbes for Fantasy Baseball Advice?

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

This Forbes.com article from Jan. 13 points out that the magazine was founded on providing readers with sound investment advice. Now, that apparently includes advice on your investments in fantasy baseball.

Zack O’Malley Greenburg is putting together a weekly fantasy “Investment Guide” series for the site that is scheduled to run up until the beginning of baseball season, and the seemingly unlikely host isn’t the only noteworthy aspect.

ZOG (as he labels himself) is drawing contributions from Baseball HQ’s Ron Shandler, Fantasy Sherpa Scott Swanay, Yahoo!’s Scott Pianowski and Nick Rousso of Lindy’s.

“Each week we’ll profile a different position, complete with exclusive analysis and composite rankings,” ZOG writes in the opening article on catchers.

It’s not only cool to see fantasy further penetrate an outlet such as Forbes.com — which has been giving our industry some pretty fair treatment over the past couple of years — but always fun to gather proven fantasy minds and see what the collective has to say.
