Customer ReviewsSee All
Fairly new listener to this one, but Matt is a good host and does solid analysis. Wasn’t crazy about that intro at first, but it’s sort of like that episode of Seinfeld where George sings his last name like the By Mennen commercial. Can’t get it out of my head now! Five stars.
Matt is a bad guy
Plenty of other fantasy baseball podcasts out there. Don’t waste your time.
Love Matt Williams!
If you are on Twitter, you’ve probably seen his fantasy breakdowns of players. If you’re not, do yourself a favor and check it out. SO in-depth, but at the end, he breaks it all down to the basics. What to expect next season. Further, Matt is an outstanding host, inquisitive, asking excellent questions, and giving his own personal perspective on Fantasy Baseball. In a crowded arena of baseball podcasts, I suggest you subscribe, and start listening to each episode!
