It's Baseball Prospectus's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and 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 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.
