Eric Hosmer: Fantasy football league back on the rails

Quality reporting by WEEI.

The drama seems to be dwindling as the season draws closer.

Two of the newest members of the Red Sox - Eric Hosmer and Tommy Pham - were both part of the well-publicized fantasy football league involving major league players. It was Pham, of course, who most identified with the league considering his dispute with Joc Pederson that led to a physical confrontation.

But, as it turned out, Hosmer left the biggest mark on the league, making it to the championship matchup against Houston’s Alex Bregman. He lost by “20 or 30 points ... It was a tough one” but certainly proved his fantasy football acumen in his first year in the high-stakes league.

How to gamble without saying you’ve been gambling.

The more one knows, the more one suspects the 2021 Padres, featuring Fernando Tatis, Tommy Pham, and Eric Hosmer, might hold some kind of record, for, I don't quite know how to say it, "dumbest" doesn't quite cut it, perhaps "least self-aware" team in recent memory.

Now 2/3's of them (and the 2/3's with the least natural talent) play for the Red Sox. Given the levels of self-awareness among Fenway regulars, maybe that is fitting.

It sure seems like the douche quotient in that fantasy football league is off the charts.

It's telling that Manny Machado and Blake Snell apparently don't even make the first tier.

Maybe "clueless"?
