About Greg Rollins - RotoBaller

From the womb to the tomb, sports will always be apart of my life. I took my passion of sports and journalism with me as I graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh. During my tenure, I was a beat-reporter for five different sports, covering players, games, coaches and more. My third passion is competition. My favorite form of competition came about 15 years ago when I found out about fantasy sports. I've been in love ever since.

Ryan Braun Still A Top Fantasy Baseball Outfielder

Therefore, the 32-year-old slugger will remain in Milwaukee for another season. Braun finished with another All-Star season in 205, pumping out a .285 BA, 25 HR, 84 RBI and 25 SB. He’s still one of the... Read More
