Reliable And Steady Fantasy Baseball Players Are Better Than Risky Rookies Right NowAs Major League Baseball teams approach the final 45 games of the season, almost all of them are giving playing time to rookies right now. It's always a risk to go with a rookie if your fantasy baseball team is challenging for the league championship in mid-August. While you may strike gold with a rookie, more often than not you're going to strike out with a first-year player. It's better instead to acquire non-flashy veteran players for the stretch drive, because wise fantasy baseball owners know they are reliable options.
