Episode Date
10 Bounce-back Players to Target w/ Al Melchior (Ep. 130)
00:48:43
We've witnessed bounce-backs in baseball and 2019 should be no different. Joining us this episode is Al Melchior of The Athletic and we're naming our top 10 players that should outproduce their 2018 campaign. We start our countdown at No. 10 with Avisail Garcia (1:06) and Jorge Polanco (3:42). Bobby names 10 hitters while Al mixes in a few pitchers into his list. The catching position is so shallow and 2018 may have been the worst-case scenario for Willson Contreras making him an attractive cheaper option (10:38). Billy Hamilton is just one season removed from four straight 50+ stolen bases and his move to Kansas City should help him recover (38:23).

10 Players Who Will Disappoint You (Ep. 129)
01:07:02
FantasyPros correspondent and DraftKings writer, Garion Thorne, is in with us for today's show, where each host lists which 10 players they feel have the highest chance to regress in 2019. Jose Ramirez (10:58) may not live up to the hype, Kenley Jansen's (18:52) age and velocity dip should continue to work against him, and Javier Baez (24:14) might not be worth his current ADP. Christian Yelich (43:44) seems bound to regress to some degree, but how much of last year's production can he sustain this season? Also, Jesus Aguilar's (49:56) extremely disappointing second half doesn't bode well for his future success.

Early Mock Draft + J.T. Realmuto's Fantasy Value (Ep. 128)
01:02:42
The two big names in baseball have yet to sign, but J.T. Realmuto is on the move and we're talking with FantasyPros writer, Dan Harris, on what the catcher's value will be in 2019. News also broke about Francisco Lindor's injury, but how much is his draft stock affected (12:00)? We're running our first mock draft of the season from the 2 and 11 spots (15:43) and the first round kicks off with Mookie Betts and Chris Sale being taken. Despite shortstop being deeper this year, Xander Bogaerts could be worth your early pick (28:21), and if you miss out on a pitcher, find out why Josh James is Bobby's must-have sleeper this year (32:27). Despite struggles and injuries, Dan plans on having shares of Chris Archer (44:47) and Yu Darvish (45:58) in multiple drafts. Find out who has the better mock draft to close the show (57:37).

Bryce Harper's Future + Dynasty Baseball Draft Tips (Ep. 127)
01:11:04
Paul Sporer of Rotographs joins the show to discuss which players you should be watching in dynasty leagues. One of the big questions on people's minds is which clubs are the mystery teams linked to Bryce Harper (2:33), is Jo Adell (21:48) currently being undervalued in dynasty formats, and is Kyle Tucker (29:25) the next best fantasy prospect to hold on to after Vladimir Guerrero Jr.? Shohei Ohtani (37:01) has a chance to get back on the mound in 2020, Freddy Peralta's (48:53) stellar fastball is a huge boon to his value, and it would be a mistake to forget about Franklin Barreto's (1:06:08) potential.

Early Rankings Standouts w/ Nick Pollack (Ep. 126)
00:54:48
Nick Pollack from Pitcher List is on today's show to discuss which players appear to be under or overvalued based on their spot in our rankings. Does Franmil Reyes' (10:44) crazy power justify his current price considering that he may struggle to find playing time, should Juan Soto (19:53) be taken ahead of Alex Bregman, and how much upside does Kyle Freeland (25:08) have pitching at Coors Field? Are people far too high on Chris Archer (39:30) and what exactly is Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s (45:04) potential in 2019 if he plays a full season?

Rookies & Dynasty Prospects (Ep. 125)
01:00:43
Steve Gardner from USA Today joins the show as we offer insight into which rookies should see fantasy relevance this year and who dynasty leaguers should consider stashing long-term. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (1:30) is expected to be a real difference-maker in both fantasy and reality this season and Alex Reyes' (20:24) immense talent should get him a spot in the Cardinals rotation. Can Peter Alonso's (26:48) powerful bat get him into the Big Leagues sooner rather than later, what should fantasy owners who decide to stash Forrest Whitley or Fernando Tatis Jr. (38:26) expect from them this season, and would it be surprising for Wander Franco (50:08) to become the league's top prospect in 2020?

Early 2019 Rankings + Free Agency Predictions (Ep. 124)
01:02:45
2019 is upon us and our very own Dan Harris joins us for our first offseason baseball podcast of the year! We dive into our early fantasy rankings to examine players in new situations. Josh Donaldson (6:51) can produce well in Atlanta, but can he stay healthy and should he be taken over a high-upside player like Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (8:22)? How do Andrew McCutchen (13:45) and Yasiel Puig (15:39) compare, what should we expect from Billy Hamilton (27:47) in Kansas City, and can Charlie Morton (37:24) continue his success after going to Tampa Bay? The crew ends things with some predictions on where top free agents, like Bryce Harper (48:33) and Manny Machado (53:09), may end up.

Playoff Run Pickups + Mailbag (Ep. 123)
00:48:36
It's been a great season, but it's not over yet. We've got Paul Sporer of RotoGraphs joining us on the show to chat about a few recent news items including Luis Urias's promotion (2:42) and Trevor Bauer's health (5:43). Like most at this time of the year, who you pick up depends on your team's situation, but we're discussing some popular names out there that have been hot as of late (e.g. Melky Cabrera - 9:20), as well as some youngsters who are getting their opportunities like Billy McKinney (13:49) and Tyler White (20:14). Despite it being late in the season, we like a couple pitchers who should be available on waivers (23:10). Find out why you should pick up Jace Fry (31:19), who the next Jose Ramirez could be (36:34), and whether you should trust your slumping veterans during these final weeks (45:41) as we answer mailbag questions (36:20).

MLB Playoff Race Predictions + Daniel Murphy Trade Analysis w/ Eno Sarris (Ep. 122)
00:39:26
Eno Sarris from The Athletic joins us to share his thoughts on us how Daniel Murphy will fit in with the Cubs (4:33) and which teams can come out on top in the MLB playoff hunt (11:47). With the fantasy playoffs also coming soon, Bobby and Eno also discuss which fantasy free agents can push you to the playoffs or help your title chances. Nick Williams is showing a lot of promise (17:31), but is Luis Castillo's strikeout potential worth taking a chance on, or will he end up disappointing you (20:22)? We finish off the show by answering your listener mailbag questions (29:42), two of which ask about how highly we should value Kris Bryant (33:19) and Mike Trout (35:38) in dynasty leagues.

Exciting Prospects & Waiver Pickups w/ Steve Gardner (Ep. 121)
01:01:42
It's crunch time for many of you who are still actively competing in your fantasy baseball leagues and as we reach these final weeks, there are a handful of topics to discuss. Steve Gardner of USA Today joins us on the show to chat about the current crop of prospects and what we're witnessing in Ronald Acuna (1:16), Juan Soto (3:09), and what we're waiting for with Vlad Guerrero Jr., Eloy Jimenez (4:11) and Michael Kopech (10:06). We then shift gears to name our favorite waiver pickups including a trio of youngsters in Willy Adames (16:28), Harrison Bader (19:11) and David Dahl (20:56) before jumping to pitchers (25:13). To end the show, we're providing answers to some tough decisions on whether it's time to move on from some big names such as Adrian Beltre (35:32), Tommy Pham (36:00), Adam Eaton (37:23), Jon Lester (40:28), and Chris Archer (41:14).

There's a lot to discuss including hitters worth adding that should be available in your league (17:54) and which available pitchers are quality adds versus streaming options (31:41). If you're wondering if it's time to drop one of your struggling bigger names, listen in as we run through a list of players that many owners may have to move on from (43:52).

00:50:09
Bobby is joined by the 2015 FSTA Baseball Writer of the Year, RotoGraphs' very own Mike Podhorzor, to discuss the latest news around the league and which players on the waiver wire fantasy owners should consider scooping up or leaving alone. The guys first share their thoughts on whether Anthony Rizzo's slide was just good baseball or had malicious intent (8:20) before delving into some pressing fantasy baseball questions. A few of the more important topics we try to tackle are whether Jonny Venters is the closer to own in Tampa Bay (10:03), if Gorkys Hernandez's power is a fluke or for real (19:32), whether Austin Meadows can stick around in the majors and become a viable fantasy option (25:20), predict just how good will Alex Reyes be this season (33:48), and project what fantasy owners should expect from call-up Shane Bieber (35:27)?
