We discuss the big Craig Kimbrel trade. For Kimbrel, this means more opportunities, because the team is better. On the downside, you have Joaquin Benoit, who loses the closer gig. Bummer for fantasy owners who have him. We then discuss the implications to the Braves lineup. Todd likes Eric Young Jr… EY may not have proven much in the past, ... read more

Hi everyone, we have a great episode for you. We put our two cents into the Kris Bryant discussion. Bottomline, I love him and Todd has more tempered expectations. The world knows about Bryant, but how do you take advantage of this? We suggest some names that you could offer him for if you have already drafted. Buy the rumor, sell the hype.... read more

The spring has begun! We chat about some of the injuries that have already happened. The big one being Yu Darvish. Bottomline, we are woooooorried.

We are back for the 2015 season! We start off the year with a discussion of sleepers and busts. We love everyone who plays on Chicago. We don’t love anyone in Seattle. There are big names that we don’t love and some no-names that we do. But that’s pretty much par for the course around here.
We even discuss coaching changes and bringing in ... read more

Alright, you waited. Then you waited some more. Then? Well, we finally made a podcast! But it wasn’t what we said it was about because we waited so long. Instead we discuss the offseason moves and how we predict those will affect things next year.

What the heck is happening to pitchers? They aren’t getting hurt anymore, but a lot of big names are getting hit hard lately. We discuss whether you should worry about these guys and throw out some names of guys that you might want to consider in lieu of the bigger names.
Speaking of big names, we delve into the topic of name-value vs. produc... read more
