Article of the Week for the Week of June 15 - 21

The Onion yet again steps up with an outstanding article. Typically the articles have little to do with baseball, or if they do, they are more satire then anything that is legitimate to the baseball community.

However, on June 19th, The Onion released an article titled, "Fantasy Baseball Owner Rips Team in Media".

Check out the article at The Onion, and if you are heading on a vacation, I suggest reading FantasyLand. It is simple and fun, the way fantasy sports were meant to be.
