"I have been so impressed by RotoHog. The game is extremely fun and addicting. I loved the draft, I think it is brilliant," said Chris Peterson, first winner of RotoHog's Fantasy Baseball League. "It is extremely important to build your cash balance as early in the draft as possible. I found that realizing who had a good week along with having a good match up the next weekend were the guys to pick up Tuesday morning. As far as deciding who to play, it came down to a balance between a good match up and picking the best football player. I definitely liked to pick the go to guy."
