Scott Engel is regularly on the beat with real Major League Baseball reporters nowadays, but his focus is unique and where Fantasy players want it to be. He is asking the questions owners want answers to, becoming a voice and a microphone linked to the ever-growing Fantasy masses.
Fantasy players can no longer be overlooked or ignored. They talk to players from the stands, and they even are in the ranks of team employees. Beat writers play Fantasy Sports. Most notably, athletes themselves are playing Fantasy Sports.
Engel’s latest interviews with the St. Louis Cardinals’ top players and coaches can be heard by clicking here. This instalment of The BallPark Report at TheXLog.com is a showcase for Engel’s efforts in a dual role for RotoExperts.com and Sirius XM Fantasy Sports Radio as the first true “field reporter” in Fantasy Sports.
