Fantasy Baseball Fans Rejoice

In case you missed it, a federal judge on Wednesday ruled that player names and stats are not the intellectual property of Major League Baseball or the Players' Association, who were seeking to bar fantasy leagues from using that information. So, good news: the games will go on.

Unfortunately, the judge failed to use her authority to tack on an extended jail sentence for Minnesota Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire for botching the handling of my fantasy team's best pitcher, super-rookie Francisco Liriano (whose season now appears to be over due to an arm injury).
