The Z Files: By the Time I Get Back From Phoenix

Todd Zola

Todd has been writing about fantasy baseball since 1997. He won NL Tout Wars and Mixed LABR in 2016 as well as a multi-time league winner in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship. Todd is now setting his sights even higher: The Rotowire Staff League. Lord Zola, as he's known in the industry, won the 2013 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Article of the Year award and was named the 2017 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year.

Iím not blessed with many skills, but being able to sleep in an upright position is one. While it helps me catch up on sleep while flying, it can be a hindrance other times. Letís just say thereís a reason I donít make any references to movies I recently saw.
