Tune in as Van Lee (@ManlyVanLee) and Ron Rigney (@therealmaday) discuss everything MLB on the world's longest running fantasy baseball podcast!* The boys bring on industry guests for mock drafts, analysis, lineup decisions, FAAB and pickup strategies, and much more!
Ep 273 | Free Agent Predictions
2022 is here! Well, not really, but for Van, Ron and Brian the 2022 season's draft prep has begun! The boys talk the recent deluge of pitcher signings with contracts being inked by Noah Syndergaard, Jose Berrios, Eduardo Rodriguez and more. They also do some predicting of their own as far as where some remaining free agents might wind up, and all throughout they play plenty of dude feuds
Since it's our first show of the 'year' there's a lot of housekeeping to go over! If you find yourself antsy to get to the analysis though, skip ahead to 4:34 for the good stuff!
Ep 272 | Fantasy and Postseason Awards
We're solidly into the postseason now and that means it's time not only crown our fantasy champions for 2021 but also to take a look back into the preseason and review our predictions. Van, Brian, and Ron do just that and look at their picks for MVP back in March as well as talk how our overall fantasy strategies might have changed since then. We finish off the show with the very first realistic edition of Which is More?!
Ep 271 | Talking the Final Week
With the final lineups set for the 2021 season Van, Brian, and Ron look back on the year and look forward to next year. They talk how their seasons went, how they approach this final week, and discuss some players worth talking about. They wrap it up with another round of Triple Slash where Brian tries to pick himself up by his bootstraps against Van. Can he do it?!
Ep 270 | AL MVP Discussion and 2020 Player Reviews
With less than a month left in the year it's a tight race for who could be the AL MVP... or is it? Van, Brian, and Ron discuss whether they think Shohei Ohtani has the award in the bag or if Vlad Jr can snatch it from his hands. The boys also talk several interesting performances from this year with an eye on 2022 and then finish off the show with quite possibly the greatest Triple Slash performance you've ever seen!
Ep 269 | Players Exceeding Expectations
As the calendar slowly switches to September the fantasy baseball season is beginning to wind down but that doesn't mean Van, Brian, and Ron don't have plenty to say. They take a look at some players who are putting up numbers far greater than expected and figure out whether they believe the new level of success is real or not. They also talk Mike Trout in the first round next year, debate a couple of young hurlers, and play a round of Which is More?
Ep 268 | MLB's CBA Antics and Triple Slash
Major League Baseball has reportedly submitted a proposal for the next collective bargaining agreement putting in place a salary floor as well as a lowered luxury tax threshold. Brian, Ron, and Van touch on whether they initially think this is a good thing or not, and they also touch on Reynaldo Lopez somehow being a grown-ass 27 year old man on a professional baseball team worth billions of dollars and having poor vision. Adds and drops as well as an eventfully stupid round of Triple Slash finish off the show!
