Ep. 18: Royal Buyers
It's Baseball Prospectus's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets) are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.
On the 18th episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. returns from his busy schedule to talk about pitchers and fringe prospects. (And to record his first cold open!) Bryan, Shawn, and R.J. discuss a fistful of important deals, starting with the Royals' acquisition of Trevor Cahill, Brandon Maurer, and Ryan Buchter from the Padres for Matt Strahm, Esteury Ruiz, and whatever's left of Travis Wood. Then it's on to the Twins acquiring Jaime Garcia (late, and not for long) along with veteran backstop (emphasis on the back) Anthony Recker from the Braves for Huascar Ynoa. And yeah, we cover the Red Sox acquiring Eduardo Nunez-though maybe they don't need him in the Rafael Devers era-and Robert Refsnyder to the Jays and David Phelps to the Mariners and ... well, there's a lot going on. Just check it out!
