2020 All-Stars fantasy baseball from the future

2020 All-Stars (s5e12) - Dodger lefty down for the count

We talk about the Julio Urias injury. He’s got a shoulder injury and he done. Pretty much a drop everywhere and we discuss possible replacements. Rick Porcello vs Alex Cobb, Trevor Bauer vs Mike Montgomery, Andrew Moore, Dutch Oven… does that sound exciting? Hey, it’s bleak out there.

On the offensive side, we chat Judge vs Bellinger. We a... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e11) - Wood vs Berrios

Pretty quiet week, so we chat about pitchers young and old. Alex Wood vs Jose Berrios vs any random name we can think of. We also rehash a bunch of articles on Fangraphs this week. Like we said, it was slow. Another subject on the docket is how has the flyball era effected how pitchers pitch. Finally, we touch on the current Closerpocalypse... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e10) - Fresh Fish

We chat about the Astros lastest call up. Derek Fisher has had a monster season in the minors this year, but is this sustainable? Is he a legit 25/25 guy? Todd worries that the steals won’t translate to the bigs, but I’m more optimistic. We compare Fisher with our favorite rookie, Cody Bellinger. Which leads to the AGon injury. We are very... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e09) - Off the rails

Off-topic is the name of the game this week. We get a little political, although don’t worry, it’s still our wacky takes on things. The environment, gender equality, basketball… there just isn’t a lot going on in baseball, so we stray. Hey, what can you do?

We start off with our favorite subject, the Dodgers. The outfield started off hot an... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e08) - Go Fish

Trout. Thumb. Us. Tears.

That’s pretty much the first 10 minutes of the podcast. We discuss waiver wire guys that are out there, but none of these guys are Trout. Not even close. So yea, probably best to just replace Trout with tears. The big question is: Is Mike Trout gettable now? If someone is in a win now mode, Todd thinks that Trou... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e07) - What's up, Joc?

Was this our best effort? … ýou can be the judge. We chat about Julio Urias. He had another bad outing and was sent back to the minors. Todd still has the faith and believes this guy will still a be a star. But for a keeper league, we discuss whether you should hold onto him. But it’s not all bad news, we discuss some guys that have been p... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e06) - Prospect of the Podcast 2017...

The big news of the week is the Aroldis Chapman injury. Although it’s big news, there is really no corresponding move because Betances should have already been owned. KRod lost the gig and Josh Wilson steps into the role. The next KRod looks to be Fernando Rodney, but who will be the next guy? JJ Hoover? Not exciting. The Washington situat... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e05) - Ennyone Out There?

Another week, another set of big names going down. Not sure how we got there, but we begin with Closerpocalypse. We go through a bunch of the guys that have recently gotten saves, but may not stick around in the gig. Crappy closers are basically our bread and butter, so listen for big names like Brad Brach, Bud Norris, and Enny Romero. My Ge... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e04) - Everybody Hurts. Some Times.

You came for baseball, but you’re staying for the basketball talk! This episode when way off the rails, but moved along quite nicely. On this May 4th, Star-Wars day, we begin our discussion with the Noah Syndergaard injury, how the 10-day DL is being used, and replacements for your squad. Lots of ghosts Christmas past in our list. Charlie Mo... read more

2020 All-Stars (s5e03) - Mad Bummed-out

The big news in the past couple days is the Madison Bumgarner’s dirt bike injury. Blessing in disguise? Cheap young talent on the wire to replace him? We discuss these topics.

Once again, we chat about closers. Same song, different verse, only this time just a little bit worse.

In case you weren’t tuning out early, we stepped up the non-se... read more
