Ep. 26: Always Be Clobbering (Baseballs)
Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus 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 26th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. decide to give Shawn a day off and try to produce the show on the fly themselves. Despite that, it's a great show! The guys start by talking about the rise of Rhys Hoskins, and what to expect from the hot-hitting Phillies youngster as he continues his career. Which current player in the NL Central does R.J. comp him to? Then it's on to the home run king of MLB, the colossus of Miami: Giancarlo Stanton. The guys discuss whether 60+ homers are in the cards, and Bryan makes his case for Stanton's historical significance and his underrated defense. Plus, there's more stewing over Mets injuries and Rays shortstops, so some things never change. (Plus bonus Blake Wood discussion, because the people absolutely do not demand it.) Enjoy!
