Profile: The greatest fantasy baseball asset of all time rides off into the sunset. Thanks to his immense power, defensive eligibility at premium positions and oft-overlooked speed, A-Rod was the no-brainer number one pick for the better part of two decades. He was a power-speed dynamo in 4x4 Rotisserie leagues in the mid-1990s, and remained an elite producer as fantasy baseball migrated to the Internet and into the mainstream. He even provided his owners with tremendous surplus value as recently as 2015, when he blasted 33 homers in the year he turned 40. In his 23 years in the big leagues, A-Rod secured many a title for many a fantasy owner. He will be missed, but we can still look forward to his commentary during the playoffs on Fox.

The Quick Opinion: Love him or hate him, A-Rod was insanely good - both in fantasy and in reality.
