Favorite Late-Round SP; Mailbag! (07/10 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3854
Adam is back and you know what that means; he's hijacking the show! Adam debates how we should be handling H2H points leagues this season. Onto the latest news and notes, what's going on with Edwin Diaz and the Mets bullpen (6:22)? Is it time to downgrade Diaz? Surprise! The Tampa Bay Rays aren't naming a closer (9:34), which was pretty much expected. Just when you thought Kyle Tucker was the guy, Dusty Baker shoots that down (11:02). Should we downgrade Tucker now? Corey Kluber is the latest starting pitcher to go deep in an intrasquad game (14:00). It's time to buy back in on pitching. We take a look at some of our favorite late-round starting pitchers (19:13), including Jose Urquidy, Josh James, and Adrian Houser. Frank explains why he's in on Aaron Civale. We take a look at some more late-round SP, including Cole Hamels for Adam and Nate Pearson for Scott (29:40). ... Onto our mailbag, what is Zac Gallen's keeper value (38:33)? Is he worth a three-year contract in Fantasy? ... We take a look at some of the Statcast stats, explaining what is average and what's considered elite in those (42:35). ... With Griffin Canning seemingly healthy, would we rather own him or Jon Gray (47:27)? We continue answering your questions! ... Email us at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

Onto our sleepers, why is Scott back in on Alex Wood (8:18)? Should you be buying the Pirates starting pitchers? ...

When it comes to busts, Scott is out on Madison Bumgarner following his move to Arizona (22:06). Chris seems to be fading Mike Clevinger and Mike Soroka this season. ... Back to ADP, should James Paxton be drafted in rounds 7-8 again (25:25)? Why does Scott love Sonny Gray? What does the Legit-O-Meter have to say about Brandon Woodruff? ... Rounds 9-10 bring us to Zack Wheeler who's wife is expecting in July (37:06). What is the Trust-O-Meter on Lance Lynn? Why is Zac Gallen so popular? ...

Starting Pitcher Preview 2.0 Part 1 (07/08 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4072
Figuring out starting pitchers for the shortened 2020 season is ... fun! First off, how are pitchers being handled thus far in Summer Camp? Unfortunately, breakout hopeful Jesus Luzardo has tested positive for COVID (3:00). Do we lower him in the rankings? How many IL spots should we play with in 2020 because of COVID? ... Onto the million dollar question: how are handling starting pitchers this season (10:00)? Will pitchers actually be limited early? Should we target "aces" because they'll go deeper into games? ... Should we devalue National League starting pitchers because of the universal DH (16:22)? ... What is our overall starting pitcher strategy for the season (21:06)? It seems like Scott is now targeting at least four of his Top-30 SP. ... Onto ADP which brings us to Gerrit Cole vs. Jacob deGrom (24:38). Is deGrom safer? Do we actually draft these guys in the first round? ... In the early second round, we see Walker Buehler, Max Scherzer, and Justin Verlander go off the board (31:36). How worried should we be over the injuries of Scherzer and Verlander? Should we take Buehler over them? ... Our next group has Mike Clevinger being drafted as the SP6 (35:50). Should he be going that early? What are the risks for Flaherty and Bieber? ... IF YOU'D LIKE TO JOIN OUR LISTENER LEAGUES, SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE (45:03). ...

Outfield Preview 2.0 Part 2 (07/07 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3961
We're back with some more outfield talk and we start off with a little strategy discussion in 3 OF leagues vs. 5 OF leagues. Onto our outfield sleepers, you'll never guess who Scott chose (3:35)! 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)? Can Marcell Ozuna get back to his 2017 form? Is 2020 finally the year of Willie Calhoun? ... For busts, Scott and Chris tell you why they're avoiding Tommy Pham and Jorge Soler (16:48). ... Moving over to ADP review, why don't the guys like Eddie Rosario as much as Castellanos and Ozuna (21:02)? What is the upside vs. downside for Luis Robert? ... In rounds 10-11, we see strong H2H points players in Michael Brantley, Max Kepler, and Michael Conforto (28:30). This might sound crazy but is Andrew Benintendi done? ... In rounds 12-13, you can find some reliable power in Franmil Reyes (40:45). What is David Dahl's upside if he can stay healthy?

Outfield Preview 2.0 Part 1 (07/06 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4032
Outfield is so vast, we need two days to cover it! Hope everybody had a wonderful July 4th weekend plus it was Chris' birthday! Before we hit the outfield, we have to discuss the latest news (2:34) regarding David Price opting out and the latest positive COVID tests. Who steps into the Dodgers rotation? How do we approach Freddie Freeman now? ... Onto the top five picks in Fantasy Baseball... they're all outfielders (11:03). Is it time to downgrade Mike Trout? Who do we prefer when it comes to Ronald Acuña vs. Christian Yelich? How about Mookie Betts vs. Cody Bellinger? ... Juan Soto is on an island towards the back half of the first round (21:17). Where does he rank among that group of hitters for Fantasy? ... Rounds 2-3 are filled with some big names (26:23), including JD Martinez, Bryce Harper, Starling Marte, and Charlie Blackmon. Are Martinez's splits worrisome? Should you consider Marte ahead of Harper and Martinez because of category scarcity? ... Onto rounds 4-5, why is Scott higher on Ketel Marte than everybody else (38:39)? Is Aaron Judge slipping too far? What is Eloy Jimenez's upside? ... Rounds 6-7 features Chris' favorite player of all time... Giancarlo Stanton (54:00)! We settle the Stanton vs. Jorge Soler debate (kind of). ... Email us at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

60-Man Player Pools, Phillies with COVID, and a Mailbag! (07/03 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3973
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). Why might happen when a player goes on paternity leave this season? Mike Trout, Gerrit Cole, Zack Wheeler, and Bryan Reynolds are all expecting in the next 2-3 months. ... Finally, we get to your Apple Podcast questions (36:22) plus your emails at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

Shortstop Preview 2.0 (07/02 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3858
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? Should Trea Turner start to creep into the top-five picks in that format because of his steals (3:00)? ... How do the guys value Bregman, Lindor, Story, Turner, and Tatis in H2H points leagues (6:30)? ... Let's have the Fernando Tatis conversation (12:20). Does he have the most upside at the position? ... Round three in ADP features Gleyber Torres, Xander Bogaerts, and Javier Baez (18:10). Why draft Bogaerts in H2H when you can get Marcus Semien 4-5 rounds later? What is the case for Baez (in roto)? ... What the **** do we do with Adalberto Mondesi this season (25:25)? Is Bo Bichette overvalued? ... Rounds 8-10 features Marcus Semien, Carlos Correa, and Tim Anderson (31:52). Is Anderson legit? Are we more likely to draft the oft-injured Correa in a shortened season? ... Onto sleepers, breakouts and busts at shortstop (42:43)! It seems like we all agree on the potential of Corey Seager, Dansby Swanson, and Carter Kieboom. ... Why is Jorge Polanco going so low this season (51:08)? What's the deal with Amed Rosario? ... Who are we most likely to draft from the Paul DeJong, Jean Segura, Didi Gregorius, Kevin Newman group (55:32)? ... Email us at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

Third Base Preview 2.0 (07/01 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3897
Today on the show we're talking third base but first, Happy Canada Day and Happy Bobby Bonilla Day! Is third base actually a deep position (4:07)? Is it the deepest position ever!? ... Which third baseman does Scott find himself drafting most (8:04)? How early would he take Alex Bregman in a H2H points league? Who does Chris typically avoid at this position? ... We jump into ADP and find the five elite third basemen that are being drafted in the first three rounds (11:20). Bregman or Nolan Arenado in Roto? Can Jose Ramirez be the number one third baseman again? Any worries over Anthony Rendon in the American League? ... Rounds 4-5 consist of overvalued players at the position (22:52). Should you be avoiding Kris Bryant? Is the FOMO real on Vladimir Guerrero Jr.? ... Rounds 6-9 feature a bunch of names that could be useful in H2H leagues (36:47). What is Yoan Moncada's upside? Who would Scott take between Matt Chapman and Josh Donaldson? ... Onto our sleepers, breakouts, and busts at third base (44:10)! We present the cases for Gio Urshela and Brian Anderson. Why is Manny Machado a bust? ... Back to ADP, rounds 13-15 features some interesting names (55:50). Can Justin Turner make it through 60 games? Why is Scott Kingery undervalued in Roto? ...

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? ... Amidst talking about Albies, Scott struck up a conversation regarding "safe" players vs. streaky players in a shortened season (19:56). Should you target more of the high-upside, streaky hitters? ... Rounds four and five at second base are mostly filled with veterans... and Keston Hiura (24:40). Should Hiura be part of the elite tier? What do Merrifield, Villar, and LeMahieu have left in the tank? ... Sleepers, breakouts, and busts at second base (37:06)! Is this finally the year for Garrett Hampson? Is Cavan Biggio a breakout or a bust? ... Back to ADP, the mid-range is filled with Max Muncy, Jeff McNeil, and Mike Moustakas (51:05). Is McNeil a poor man's DJ LeMahieu? ... Rounds 10-13 are filled with Eduardo Escobar, Cavan Biggio, Tommy Edman, and Gavin Lux (54:30). Who is the real Escobar? How much will Lux play this season? ... We wrap things up with the late-round options at the position (59:30)! ... Email us at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

First Base Preview 2.0 (06/29 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4118
Once considered a cornerstone in Fantasy Baseball, first base isn't what it used to be. Is it the second most shallow position outside of second base? Has Scott changed any of his first base ranks based on the schedule and divisions of the shortened season (4:37)? ... Last season Cody Bellinger was a top five player in both H2H and Roto. How legit was it (7:07)? Would we rather have Bellinger or Mookie Betts? ... Freddie Freeman was slowed by an elbow injury last September and then had offseason surgery (14:00). Do we have any concern over this? ... Is Pete Alonso really a bust after hitting 53 home runs (18:27)? Should we wait two rounds and just take Matt Olson? ... The mid-tier is a popular one this season (24:34). Why does Frank love Jose Abreu? Who is the real Josh Bell? ... Onto our sleepers (40:02)! Chris and Frank like Justin Smoak and CJ Cron but Scott's going even deeper. ... Why do the guys have so much confidence in Luke Voit breaking out (43:40)? ... One year after being a Top-40 pick, Scott is throwing in the towel on Rhys Hoskins (48:45). ... Back to ADP review, will Carlos Santana ever stop being awesome in H2H points leagues (54:03)? ... Are we buying anything that Yuli Gurriel or Danny Santana did in 2019 (56:52)? Also, in honor of Adam Aizer, don't sleep on Edwin Encarnacion!! ... Email us at fantasybaseball@cbsi.com.

Relief Pitcher Preview 2.0 (06/26 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4147
Today on the show we're previewing the most volatile position in Fantasy Baseball... relief pitchers! Just to prove the volatility, how many closers do we think were the intended closer to start the year and were still there by the end of the season? What's our overall relief pitcher strategy in H2H vs. Roto (3:00)? Does it change in a shortened season? Should we focus more on job security? ... We kick off our ADP review with Josh Hader, who is being drafted in the fifth round (9:00). How concerned should we be over Corey Knebel? Would we rather have Hader in the fifth round or Nick Anderson in the 12th (9:00)? ... The next group features the top three closers in terms of job security: Kirby Yates, Aroldis Chapman, and Roberto Osuna (18:24). Should Osuna be ranked #1 this season? ... The next group is a tough one including Liam Hendriks, Kenley Jansen, Brad Hand, and Taylor Rogers (26:54). What's up with Brad Hand and can he fight off James Karinchak? ... 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! ... Next up we have a group of low-end RP2s plus how are SPARPs looking this season (53:27)? ... We wrap with some relievers who can help with ratios and holds in 2020 (1:03:45)...

Catcher Preview 2.0 (06/25 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
4122
Is the catcher position really back? Seven of the Top-12 catchers in H2H leagues were waiver wire additions last season. Is that normal? What is Scott's typical catcher strategy in a one-catcher league vs. a two-catcher league (3:31). Has it changed at all in a 60-game season? ... The elite tier is filled with all but two players: JT Realmuto and Gary Sanchez (7:22). Is this a case of safety vs. upside? Would we rather have Realmuto in the fifth round or Sanchez in the seventh? ... Onto our favorite sleepers at the catcher position, why does Scott favor Danny Jansen (18:00)? How good can Sean Murphy be? Is Yadier Molina really a sleeper? ... Mitch Garver already broke out last season but Scott still likes him in 2020 (25:30). Can Omar Narvaez get even better in Milwaukee? ... When it comes to busts at the catcher position, Scott is worried about Carson Kelly's playing time (34:!2). Is the floor too low for Will Smith? Also, where did Christian Vazquez come from? ... Back to our ADP review, how do we rank Yasmani Grandal, Willson Contreras, and Mitch Garver (44:11)? Who's the best discount? ... Our next group of catchers involves Salvador Perez and WHY DOESN'T HE GET MORE LOVE (50:11)? Who do the guys prefer between Kelly, Vazquez, Narvaez, and Molina (53:30)?

MLB Rule Changes; Devalue Mike Trout!? (06/24 Fantasy Baseball Podcast)
3778
Today on the show we're taking a closer look at the rule changes that were announced for the 2020 MLB season but first, Adam gets us started with his love for the Yankees! Once again, we address the question as to whether or not you should be redrafting the teams you drafted back in March (1:40). In our email of the day, we're asked whether we should be devaluing Mike Trout at all since he has a baby due in August (7:55). Should he fall out of the first round? ... It's time to address the elephant in the room regarding COVID-19 (15:30). Charlie Blackmon and two other Rockies have already tested positive. How does that affect drafting? ... We have other news items regarding Kyle Gibson potentially sitting out the season, Yasiel Puig suitors, and Michael Fulmer's return (20:05). ... Based on reports, what type of usage should we expect for Shohei Ohtani this season (27:35)? ... Onto scheduling and divisions, each team will face their division opponents 10 times this season as well as their opposing interleague division (30:35). Who does that favor? ...
