  5. Potential fantasy impact of Biogenesis

    Eric Karabell

    It's a shame that the Biogenesis scandal will remain in the news this week, next week and probably for many weeks, overshadowing the games we've missed. The games mercifully return Friday night, but we'll still be hearing and reading about several of...
