In 2013 a head-to-head fantasy league called the Mohrriors led by comedian and sports radio talks show host Jay Mohr was featured on the Fox Sports fantasy baseball websites. Interested viewers were able to track all the results and roster move in Mohr’s league and follow the action from start to finish. Mohr’s team finished last place in his division, missing the playoffs. While that is not a good result for the man with his name in the league’s title, poor fantasy play is traditionally good fodder for self-deprecating humor, so hopeful Mohr got some good jokes out of his poor performance.
