This topic was done recently (maybe in Leftovers?), I'll search for it whenever I grab a second of free time.

I think the opposite would be funny

Berkman to Sosa "I'll trade you yourself and Bruce Chen for me"


Sosa "Hell no, I have nothing without those roid this year. You keep me. You'll outperform me in the 2nd half"

There are many instances of athletes playing fantasy sports. A lot of them dabble in the other sports.

I know for a fact that Larry Johnson of the Chiefs does it, as do a lot of the bench guys in the NFL.

Baseball players, I think, would be too busy traveling all the time. Well, except for Clemens.

I can see that - for some reason i always see the brewers as a really laid back team, so them playing games in spare time wouldnt surprise me. ;-D
