Raised in Atlanta by a board game-loving family during the dawn of the '90s Braves dynasty, Scott White was easy prey for the Fantasy Sports, in particular Fantasy Baseball, and has devoted his adulthood to understanding this game about a game. In another time, they would have castigated him for entertaining such fancies, but in these times of plenty, they dress him in a suit and parade him to the masses. Though a believer in the numbers, they're to him no substitute for intuition and common sense. Follow Scott @CBSScottWhite
