This is not a book that you think a non-fantasy baseball playing non-sports nut would like; I've only followed baseball for a year, and I still have a hard time remembering which teams are in the National League and which are in the American, let alone being able to understand what would drive someone to absorb so many numbers about so many players in order to play a game.

Okay, coming from a man who is currently reading a rule-book for mass combat in a role-playing game he knows he will never play, perhaps "not able to understand" is a bit of a stretch, but my point is still valid. Wait, I haven't made my point yet. My point is that I'm loving this book even though I know little about baseball and nothing about fantasy baseball. Walker is a great writer and keeps the book moving along with a light, very witty touch.
