About Dan Sausville - RotoBaller

My name is Dan Sausville, and I am transitioning from a 7 year "career" as a minor league baseball player, to being a sports journalist. I have a passion for the MLB, NBA, and NFL, as well as Pro Boxing, Fantasy Sports, Madden Ultimate Team, and my family. I look forward to using my 20+ years of baseball experience to help bring some insight into the game from a non familiar place, as not many former players end up writing and informing. I have been on 4 championship teams at the pro level, 2 last place teams at the same level, and a year in the middle. I think that my experience with the highs and lows of the game will help me better understand when and why a player or team gets hot, or why they are not, and what makes the players tick. I look forward to sharing this with our audience, and cannot wait to expand my horizons and get in on some NBA talk, as well as some NFL. Until then I will be covering the Dodgers, as well as some misc. baseball chatter.

Dan Sausville - RotoBaller has written 22 articles so far, you can find them below.

[iframe src="" height="200" width="100%"]   Matt Kemp's Comeback Many intelligent people might contend that this tweet from the Dodgers was just organizational talk to create hype around a player in whom they are heavily invested in.
