AP fantasy writer?

    I was killing some time on the wire today when a fantasy baseball story came across on the AP sports wire.

    Is this a new thing? I can't remember ever seeing this before.

    Here's the story (first newspaper online I saw that carried it):

    Didn't know the AP had a fantasy writer, but I know the Freep has a fantasy columnist... (sorry, couldn't pass it up)
  3. i've seen konigsberg stuff before. not sure if it's regular fantasy column or not. he used to work at espn.com (although i don't think it was the fantasy section) and actually wrote a great great story about being gay at the worldwide leader. he basically announced to everyone he was working with -- most of whom never knew -- he was gay and did it in a frontpage story. it was about the time all the rumors of a baseball player being outed were circling and he tied it into that. it was great stuff. shortly thereafter, i think he took the gig with AP.

    Kudos, Slappy. A well-played slap shot to Big Ears' ego.

    The AP does employ photographers with the fantasy of knowing the English language, as well as the fantasy editors who fix their works of prose.

    It seems to me this is the first season for the AP to have a fantasy baseball feature as a regular component of the weekend budget.
