October is a time of transition for fantasy baseball owners. The regular season is over, so there are no games that actually mean something until next spring. Yes, there is a month of exciting postseason play, but it only has secondary impact on your fantasy strategy going forward -- unless you're among the few who do a league among the playoff teams (and my condolences to those who relied on the Cubs in those leagues).
Keeper-league owners are already starting to get their rosters in shape, but the flurry of offseason movement that piques the interest of many baseball fans and fantasy owners won't take place for a few more weeks, when the postseason is over.
