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 30th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. mix it up a little by focusing on the Cleveland baseball team's epic 20 21-game winning streak. Recorded in the midst of their 5-3 victory of Detroit, the guys discussed this roster through a transactional lens, focusing on the strength of their pitching staff and on the smaller moves that helped revitalize The Land … at least in a baseball sense. Each of our hosts jumps on a couple of favorite role players: for R.J. it's Dan Otero and Giovanny Urshela, while Bryan focuses more on Mike Clevinger (naturally) and Yandy Díaz. They also discuss Cleveland's role as one of the first sabermetric front offices, Terry Francona's influence on the team, Bryan Shaw's rubber arm, and much more.

(P.S. – Bryan is still devastated over the loss of Stonetown in downtown Cleveland, home to the world's best fried chicken / red velvet waffle combination.)
