TINO (There Is No Offseason)

Ep. 2 -- I'm a Star

by Bret Sayre, Mauricio Rubio, Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

The second of the deluge of new podcasts here at Baseball Prospectus Fantasy, There is No Off-Season is quite different than its sister podcast, Flags Fly Forever. In this space, we will discuss all things dynasty and long-term keeper related, and nothing but. We will focus on both the major and minor league sides of things, but all within the spectrum of long-term value. You'll learn a lot, at least when we're not spouting off inside jokes and berating Craig--and even maybe then too. Oh, and remember to rate and review us on iTunes.

This week's topics:

Hello! (0:00-2:10)
Listener E-mails! (3:31-25:39)
Long-term Catcher Options (25:40-48:46)
Is Drafting Catching Prospects a Good Idea? (48:47-1:10:45)
There Is No Ending! (1:10:46-1:13:20)

And everything you need to listen and enjoy is below this line that I'm typing right now:

There are very public articles stating Darvish was somewhat protected against high pitch counts. Tanaka not at all which if you look at Japanese SPs over time, they flame out after 3yrs. As Parks suggested, will Tanaka be able to pitch off his forkball or will MLs make him throw his FB/SL which both are ML avg pitches.
Abreu is being very underrated and should be #1 pick in every draft. This guy is a high makeup monster who loves to hit the ball a mile. Farnesworth did a great breakdown of the swing where it starts slow, but the strength and explosion through the ball is devastating. This guy came up in Cuba as a SS, then slid to 3B and eventually a 1B. Yes, this is the exact path of the best pure hitter in baseball Miggy Cabrera.
A prospect who shoots back up in the top 50? Trevor Story

Love trolling people with ridiculous offers after they offer me lousy trades.

So... was it just my download, or were there 11 minutes of silence at the end for everyone?

It was not just you. We realized it upon it being posted but figured it was ultimately harmless. We'll try to keep the extended silence to no more than 8 minutes from now on.
