Fantasy Baseball Advice
Awards and 2nd Half Performers
Grey and B_Don discuss who should take home the MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year awards for both leagues. We called the MVP race months ago, but do we still think so? The Cy Young for the National League is anyone’s guess even at this late stage of the season. Then, we take some time and talk about the Rookie of the Year candidates and what we expect from them next year for production and ADP. After we get through with the awards, we take a look at some of the best second half performers and if we expect them to carry it over into 2024.
Fantasy Baseball Podcast: George Kirby Deflated
Grey and B_Don talk about a couple young pitchers who ran into some trouble in George Kirby and Cole Ragans. We continue to talk about who might be the top prospect drafted next year following the Jasson Dominguez injury. Maybe it could be another late season call-up in Jordan Lawlar, Pete Crow-Armstrong, or Evan Carter.
The Angels are open to trading Mike Trout, and we’re sure they’d trade Anthony Rendon if they could too. It was announced that one of the top Japanese pitchers, Shota Imanaga, will be posted to MLB this offseason. Ryan Pepiot is in the Dodgers rotation now, but could Grey trust Gavin Stone again?
Grey and B_Don start the show with some discussion about the Julio Urias situation. We talk about setting lineups for stretch runs and the amazingness that is Ronald Acuna Jr. We talk about a few of the recent MLB team claims made by the two Ohio teams.Next, we move on to talk about the September call-ups. The Yankees made a few including Jasson Dominguez, Austin Wells, and Randy Vasquez. We also talk about the call-ups and recalls of Alexander Canario, Ronny Mauricio, Brett Baty, Emmet Sheehan, Kyren Paris, Xavier Edwards, Tyler Soderstrom, and Jose Tena.
Say It Ain’t SOhtani
Grey and B_Don wildly speculate what the future may look like for one of the greatest players baseball has ever seen following his injury. Then, we move on to talk about some of the week’s call-ups. We discuss the Yankees duo of Everson Pereira and Oswald Peraza being brought up. Over in California, the Dodgers have called up MIchael Busch and Gavin Stone while the Giants have recalled Heliot Ramos.
Hunter Goodman and Jacob Young both moved up multiple levels and now have their opportunity at the MLB level. Wilyer Abreu got the call-up from the Red Sox, but then as he went on paternity leave, we get another surprise with Ceddanne Rafaela getting called up. We wrap up the show by playing everyone’s favorite Anchorman themed game of Scientific Fact, Sex Panther, or I Don’t Believe You with some second half pitching performers.
Schanuel No. 5
Grey and B_Don discuss some of the late season call-ups that are getting an opportunity even before the September roster expansion. We start in Cincinnati with Noelvi Marte’s call-up. Then, we move on to the Cardinals call-up of Masyn Winn. The Giants made a few different moves by bringing up Kyle Harrison, Luis Matos, and Wade Meckler. Nolan Schanuel was called up by the Angels after all of 21 games in the minors. Parker Meadows is getting his opportunity with the Tigers too.
We move on and talk about a couple guys returning from injury in Royce Lewis and Bo Bichette. Where does Grey see himself ranking Bo for 2024? We finish up with everyone’s favorite game, Scientific Fact, Sex Panther, or I Don’t Believe You with some of the less expected names on the player rater.
Here's A Story Of Man Named Trevor
Grey and B_Don start the show talking about the news surrounding Wander Franco. While we wait for news, we discuss what could happen in Tampa Bay while he’s away from the team. We move on from that topic to discuss some possible September call-ups. We talk about the possibility of seeing Masyn Winn, Jackson Holliday, Heston Kjerstad, and others. If you’re reading this, one name I forgot to mention that I meant to was a return of Royce Lewis.
After talking about some of the possible call-ups on the way, we move on to some that already have been called up. We discuss Eury Perez’s role and value, Lawrence Butler, Luken Baker, Nelson Velazquez, and a few others. We next talk about the return of a couple former top fantasy players in Trevor Story and Chris Sale.
One of the best
One of my favorite pods. Makes me laugh every time and Grey’s takes are the best.
Please figure out the echo issue though. It happens sometimes times when B_don goes to Grey and it’s pretty rough on the ear holes!
Somewhat informative somewhat funny
I think the mix needs adjusting. Sometimes I just want to get to the stats and the one guy is rambling about things that don’t matter. I can see how it’s entertaining to some, but for me, I like 15%-20% humor/nonsense and the rest info that helps me win my league. 3 ⭐️’s
I listen to 5 hours of baseball pods a day. These guys are knowledgeable and give great advice but this guy needs to lay off the meth. OMG. I would like to keep listening but he gives me a panic attack. Chill out! And yes, the name pronunciation thing is just disrespectful. 5 stars for the content but man this was tough listening. R&B for life! CBS all day!
