On the 32nd episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. take a left turn from their recent discussions about good teams to talk about a bad one: the San Diego Padres. Sure, they talk a bit about Clayton Richard's extension, but it's mainly an excuse to talk about the interesting young players on the Friars' roster and their fascinating skipper, Andy Green.

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 31st episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. had so much fun talking about the surging Indians last week, that they choose to follow the same format this week. This time, the topics du jour are the two other playoff teams: the (quiet) Washington Nationals and the (loud) Houston Astros.

On the 30th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. mix up the format in order to talk about Cleveland's surprising 21-game win streak and the moves and deals that brought them to this point. (Also, they argue about the respective merits of Yandy Díaz vs. Giovanny Urshela. It's a good show anyway.)

On the 29th episode of the DFA podcast, your intrepid hosts review a pair of slightly different transactions: the Pirates' extensions of Neal Huntington and Clint Hurdle. When they get back to player moves, Bryan and R.J. review Victor Robles' callup, Juan Nicasio's latest move, Jimmy Nelson's injury, and whatever the heck happened to the Royals' bullpen. (Mike Minor!)

Fantasy Freestyle: Rules of the Road

3

Mike Gianella

The quality of your fantasy league is only as good as its set of rules—and the character of its players.

The League of Alternative Baseball Reality, more commonly known as LABR, came into being in 1994. It is universally considered the first “expert” league (some bristle at the idea of “expert” leagues, so I’ll use the term “analyst” going forward). Other analyst leagues have been created since that time, most notably Tout Wars, but also include CBS and Yahoo’s Friends & Family.

“Home” leagues predate expert leagues by at least 14 years, with the founding of the original Rotisserie Baseball League in 1980. I am in one of these home leagues that predates LABR. The Billy Almon Brown Graduate league was founded in 1987 by a group of Brown University students who named the league after Bill Almon because he is the only player from Brown since 1941 to play in the majors. If WAR had existed in 1987, it might be the Bump Hadley Brown Graduate or Fred Tenney Brown Graduate league instead, which both sound cooler.

On the 28th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. go over a trio of top prospect callups: Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo, and J.P. Crawford. The guys then hit the small waiver-wire moves that took place, consider the Cardinals' process, and close things out with some talk about Nori Aoki.

On the 23rd episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. and Bryan need to tell you about Tyler Clippard and the Astros' bullpen. (Not great for a World Series contender.) And is Neil Walker the missing piece for Milwaukee's Wild Card run? (Probably not!) At least we have Giancarlo Stanton rumors. (Oh no!)
