It was a short week without any meaningful baseball and rather than force fantasy news looking at the allstar game or home run derby, we decided it was the perfect time to do some interviews. Jay Jaffe, Jonah Keri, and Cory Schwartz were kind enough to give us some of their time this week and each shared some great stuff with us.

Mentions of Matt Moore and Stephen Strasburg as potential Hall of Famers, but no Chris Sale. Aargh.
I am a big Sale fan (despite his White Sox-ness), but I'm not sure he's on their level because of the extra injury worry re: his delivery. Every pitcher is rife with uncertainty, but he's on a different level than Moore & Stras so I understand Jay not including him. Of course, it's all dartboarding at this stage anyway.
Came here to type what Paul did
Understandable. The concern with Sale (like there is with most young pitchers) is that he'll breakdown and eventually need TJ surgery. Which is ironic, seeing as how Strasburg has already been under the knife, yet that concern about him seems to be gone. Like Jaffe noted in the podcast, Don Cooper is one of the best pitching coaches in baseball. If the White Sox bought into the notion that his delivery was TJ surgery waiting to happen, I'm sure it would have been changed/tweaked with by now.
