On the ninth episode of DFA, Bryan, R.J., and Shawn close out the second month of baseball by reviewing those offseason transactions that shaped the start of this season. (Naturally, the Red Sox, Astros, Brewers, and Royals are all major topics of conversation.)
On the eighth episode of DFA, R.J. gets his revenge and kicks Bryan to the curb in favor of BP’s Meg Rowley. They discuss the Cardinals trading Matt Adams to the Braves, the Angels signing Doug Fister, and of course a little Mariners talk. Plus much, much more!
On the sixth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. review the fall of Blake Snell, as the Rays send him back down to Durham after a rough start to the season. Then it’s on to Ian Happ and his cameo in Chicago, plus the usual run-through of all things transactionâ€“including the Dodgers gaming the system and the closers disappearing in NYC.
On the fifth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. talk about the end of Ryan Howard’s career, what made him an interesting player, and how history will remember the powerful slugger. Then it’s on to Justin Marks and the Dodgers’ “type” of pitcher, minor moves that stick with you, and a full transaction roundup.
On the fourth episode of DFA, Bryan, R.J., and Shawn discuss the Marlins and the difficulty of rebuilding a rotation from nothing at all. After that, the guys cover the Mariners’ slow descent into madness, which obviously had an effect on them as well, as they spent too much time riffing on Adam Rosales.
On the third episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. attempt to figure out which early season picher injury has hurt which club the most, talk about how the Yankees have managed to play better than expected, a Pittsburgh Pirate call-up from Single-A, and much more.
On the second episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. delve into the early wave of prospect talent coming up in Los Angeles; will Bellinger and Urias push the Dodgers to the top of the West? Also, the guys break down Oakland’s Andrew Triggs and much more.
On the debut episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. discuss the New York Mets and how bad they are at using the new 10-day disabled list, Jerry Dipoto giving up on Leonys Martin, and the irreplacable starting pitchers heading to the DL!
No, really: At least Nolan Arenado is fun to watch.
