The King’s Fantasy Baseball Insider Series returns for the 2017 campaign. Every preseason, I speak to key baseball insiders on the condition of anonymity to get their unfiltered views on key players for the upcoming season. I speak to players, front office personnel and top media members who cover the game and teams regularly from first-hand perspectives. So join me for this year’s first installment, as I deliver to you exclusive scouting reports from a prominent Major League broadcaster on national and local platforms who is a former front office executive. He also is a veteran Fantasy Baseball player with a sharp eye for both the real and virtual games.
