Amazing Content

Some shows are entertaining. Some shows are informative. Some shows are neither. This show never disappoints. GREAT content from beginning to end. Whether you’re a high stakes player or not, everything from player evaluation, draft theory and strategy to in-season roster management is here. I have learned a lot listening to this pod. It’s also refreshing to hear Matty reinforce strategy you’re already implementing. If you listen to this and don’t agree is extremely useful in becoming a better fantasy baseball player, I’m not sure you should even be listening to podcasts. A++++ Update: now this beast of a podcast has Vlad Sedler! Hard to believe it could get better but it’s now blasted off and in orbit! This is an insta-listen when it drops.
