Ian Kahn of Rotowire and The Athletic joins us to talk all things dynasty baseball as well as a couple of players Ian feels you should be targeting in your leagues. We cover Luis Robert’s accession, Gavin Lux’s assault on AAA, and other names to keep an eye on. It’s an hour with the Father of America, tune in and pay your respects!
Baseball Prospectus Senior Writer and Dodgers prospect extraordinaire Wilson Karaman joins Ralph and Matt as the trio talk all the hot LA names (Dustin May, Gavin Lux, Edwin Rios and more), break down fantasy ramifications of Dylan Cease, Brendan McKay and even do a little digging on the Futures Game Roster.
The MLB Draft Extravaganza! After some brief news -- where we talked about Zach Plesac and Devin Smeltzer a ton -- we dove into the names that you want to circle for your First-Year Player Draft. If you want power, who do you take? Speed? Average? Who's the best pitcher? Best upside play outside top 15 names? Come learn about the next wave of MLB prospects.
It's a jam-packed episode as Eddy, Ralph and Matt dive into a ton of MLB call ups (Cron, Biggio, Keller, Smith), players returning to action or getting assigned to a league (Alex Reyes, Brennen Davis, Wander Javier, etc).
Two discussion topics in this episode are 1) how do you know when it's time to cut bait on a prospect that had good value recently for a pop up guy and 2) talking where MLB 2019 future draftees Adley Rutschman, Andrew Vaughn, Bobby Witt Jr, Riley Greene and JJ Bleday fit in a top 100 fantasy list.
The first of a string of special draft podcasts, this one with Ralph Lifshitz and our college baseball analysts Anthony Franco.
