I know players cannot make wagers on individual games, player
performances, or associate with bookies, but can they player fantasy
baseball?  Even a non-monetary one?  Could Scott Rolen for example
sign up for ESPN fantasy baseball and might it influence his
performance?  Moreover, what would MLB do about it?

Ciao.

More importantly, if you are a "smart player" but not a "good
rotisserie" player, (Doug Glanville), would you choose yourself to
start.

Doug Glanville actually is a decent player to have on a rotisserie
team because he steals bases, and SBs are a pretty rare commodity
these days.  And he tends to hit for a decent average, which doesn't
hurt.  The main reason he sucks so much is because of his lack of
walks, which doesn't matter in roto.
