A lot of owners play fantasy baseball with too much emotion, waiving players they don’t like personally or that they have a grudge against because of some game result a few years back.

The Minnesota Twins have had their eyes on Byron Buxton for months. No better highlight came from tracking this super-fast high school center fielder than a Georgia state playoff game three weeks ago.
