3993

Short-Season Philosophy; Worryometer Wednesday! (08/12 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4005
How's the shortened season treating you? For our OMGG player of the night, Scott is concerned about Ross Stripling (1:55). The numbers aren't where they usually are for him and Dustin May has pitched well. For Frank, Charlie Blackmon is on a different level right now. Should you consider selling high?... Uh oh, Ronald Acuña is having his wrist checked out (6:40). In other news, Ramon Laureano was given a six-game suspension, Joe Musgrove has landed on the IL and should you add Drew Pomeranz because of Kirby Yates' weird season? ...

Trade Targets! How Good is Aaron Nola? (08/11 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3979
Apparently the recipe to get a hitter going is to just face Sean Newcomb or Steven Matz! For the OMGG player of the night, Frank gives the nod to Asdrubal Cabrera (1:38) who had four hits, including two homers and five RBI! Next up we have Aaron Nola who has been ridiculous over his last two starts. How high is he moving up the ranks? It's also nice to see JD Martinez hit his first homer of the season. ... Onto news and notes and Mike Clevinger is a ding dong (12:02). Apparently he was out partying with Zach Plesac Saturday night so Clev will not make his scheduled start on Tuesday.

The Cardinals-Pirates series has been postponed so get your Cardinals out of your lineups. ... What do we do with these performances (30:16)?

Do any of these deeper league SP matter (46:21)? Kevin Gausman's velo is up while Antonio Senzatela has pitched very well. Are guys like Jesus Aguilar and Miguel Cabrera "back" (49:53)?

Chris likes a bounce-back for Mallex Smith while Frank is buying Trent Grisham. ... For breakouts, just how good can Nick Castellanos be in Cincinnati (9:37)?

Happy 4th of July weekend! It's been awhile since Adam's been on the pod so let him rock the mic the first few minutes. We banter about some recent mock drafts we've done but Adam has some questions: Carlos Correa or Adam Judge? And Kyle Tucker or Justin Turner? Onto the 60-man player pools for this season (6:42). What is there to know? How will service time work for rookies? Which prospects should we expect (11:17)? Why didn't Ryan Mountcastle make it yet? Also, Nick Madrigal is a sneaky sleeper. Should you handcuff relievers in deeper Roto leagues (17:14)? It could pay-off instead of wasting all that FAAB. We hit the latest news and notes (19:37) and there's a lot. Four Phillies have been placed on the COVID-19 Injured List. What does this mean for Scott Kingery and Hector Neris? Jordan Hicks will start the year on the IL so it seems like Giovanny Gallegos will be the guy. Last but not least, more Yankees updates! ... We're on baby watch (31:29).

If you thought third base was deep... shortstop is deep as well. With five shortstops being drafted in the first two rounds, who do we want most in Roto leagues?

Second Base Preview 2.0 (06/30 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3970
So, uhh, about second base. It's not the greatest position, which gives us even more reason to break it down! Because of how shallow it is, do we find ourselves reaching at the position? We won't normally hit news and notes on position previews but it's worth mentioning the four players who have already opted out of the 2020 season (3:50). ... Onto the "elite" tier at second base where we find Gleyber Torres, Jose Altuve, Ozzie Albies, and Ketel Marte (8:02). Why are people shying away from Altuve? Will Gleyber crush the Orioles again? ...

First Base Preview 2.0 (06/29 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4118

Onto our sleepers, breakouts, and busts (31:24)! Why is Ken Giles so disrespected? Can Gallegos breakout? Basically, nobody on the podcast is drafting Hader. ... Back to ADP review, this next group is very polarizing between Edwin Diaz, Giles, Hector Neris, Raisel Iglesias, and Craig Kimbrel (46:37). Target this group! ...
