Let Other Fantasy Baseball Owners Take Chances On September Call-Ups

Every September, MLB rosters expand so minor-league players with potential can get a cup of coffee with the big-league team.

The other owners will be shaking their heads with regret for letting hype rule their decision-making processes.
