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.

On the fifth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. talk about Ryan Howard's release from the Braves' Triple-A affiliate, and the (likely) end of his major-league career. (Bryan also wrote an expanded article about Howard for a Liner Notes column today!) Then R.J. brings up Justin Marks and how the Dodgers are chasing a very specific style of pitcher, and the guys reflect on some minor moves of years past that have stuck with them ... and Bryan goes a little too long on Athletics outfielder Mark Canha. Then it's off to the usual transaction roundup, where the Giants and Mariners continue to fall apart, and the Cubs may or may not be improving with the addition of Jeimer Candelario.

Ep. 4: I Think We Shall Call Him Adam

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 fourth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. discuss the Marlins and their rotation choices after the untimely death of staff ace Jose Fernandez. After injuries to Wei-Yin Chen and Edinson Volquez, is the team too flawed to move forward, or can their vaunted bullpen shoulder the load. Then it's on to talk about the Mariners once again, as James Paxton's injury reminds us to never love pitchers, and Mike Zunino's demotion gets the guys talking about the devaluation of pitch framing. Finally, during our batting practice segment, things get a little weird when the topic of Adam Rosales randomly comes up.

Ep. 3: Aces Low

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 this episode, the guys rally their spirits despite a series of pitching injuries laying teams low. Cole Hamels is out for the Rangers, Corey Kluber is banged up, and even Hyun-Jin Ryu and Edinson Volquez have hit the 10-day DL in the past three days. So which team has suffered the most from a wounded wing? Then it's onto the surprising Yankees, who don't seem to be missing a step despite the recent injury to Greg Bird. Were their offseason acquisitions instrumental in building an AL East leader, or has it just been dumb luck? Plus, Shawn serves up more minor moves, including the beginning of the Kyle Kendrick era in Boston and a High-A catcher that somehow found his way to Pittsburgh.
