When I'm drafting and it's between 2 different players and it's close..I will take the Ray or the Yankee or any of my beloved Blue Jays' division rivals.

That way, if they suck and my fantasy team does terrible, it usually means some good fortune for the Jays. Ironically, I seldom Auction buy or draft any Blue Jays.

Should have put option C - both. I'd bet that many are willing to see their team/player fail every once in awhile for the good of their fantasy teams. O:-)

The Mets unless they're completely out of it, then I lean towards my fantasy teams.

The Giants and whoever is playing the Dodgers trump my fantasy team every time.

Definitely the Braves.

If the Braves are playing against Matt Harvey and I have Harvey starting on my fantasy team, I root for the Braves to win on unearned runs so that I can enjoy the best of both worlds (win by the MLB team and useful start from the fantasy player). Same sort of scenario applies to batters. If the Braves are playing against the Reds and I have Jay Bruce in my lineup, I root for the Braves to win 14-4 with Bruce hitting 4 solo home runs.

Ya I know there are always times to try and choose both, but I wanted to see how people align when it is one or the other.
