Episode 271: Trade Deadline Catchup and Expanding Free Agency

August 6th, 2021

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back with a bag of post deadline related things. They start with a discussion of the draft in light of Kumar Rocker’s unfair treatment by the Mets, before wondering if abolishing the draft would actually create as much interest among fans as it would fairness among players. After that, they move towards cleaning up some of the big trades that went down around the deadline.

Episode 270: Trade Deadline 2021 (Sorta) AKA The One About Joey Gallo

July 29th, 2021

The whole crew is back this week, and what a big week to be back. With just under 48 hours until the deadline at recording time Mike, Jon, and Samuel discuss what’s happened so far. That mainly starts with Samuel sadboi’ing over the Joey Gallo trade that broke earlier in the day, which derails the show for a good fifteen minutes. The wheels get back on though, with more trade analysis including a big breakdown on Starling Marte for Jesus Luzardo. Enjoy this before the GMs get too bloodthirsty and blow the whole league up!

Episode 269: Substitute Teacher Mikey Ajeto of Pitcher List

July 23rd, 2021

Hi y’all, producer Samuel here. As Mike mentions on the show, I’m on assignment this week so I’m not on the show. That said the show features Mike Gianella, Jon Hegglund, and Mikey Ajeto from Pitcher List talking about…something. I asked what I should look out for and I was told “There are swears.” So, there’s that. I’m assuming there’s some baseball talk in there as well. I heard the word “Giants” a few time, so there’s something you can latch onto. Also Mikey has a great laugh to end the show, so that’s worth listening to all of it for. Anyway, enjoy!

Episode 268: Titles Are Hard, So Is Baseball

July 9th, 2021

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back after a week off. They start the show with a conversation about how MLB’s ineptitude on players like Trevor Bauer is harmful for the fantasy community both now and in the future. They then transition to a discussion of some midseason surprises both good and bad.

Episode 267: The One Featuring Crypto, Sticky Stuff, and Shohei Ohtani’s Pants

June 25th, 2021

Mike, Jon, and Samuel try out something a little different this week where they go around the horn and discuss whatever baseball topic comes to mind. This hardball roulette brings them to Shohei Ohtani’s talents and trousers, the recent MLB crypto partnership, what should a quality start actually be, and the foolishness of the sticky stuff enforcement policy.

Episode 266: The One About Dennis Lamp

June 18th, 2021

OK, this is probably the wildest episode of the current era. Mike, Jon, and Samuel start the episode talking about basketball, as one does on a fantasy baseball podcast. Then they pivot to their actual discussion, which is about current trends in the game that were unexpected and how that apply fantasy wise. It goes off the rails shortly after as the lads go into a discussion about journeyman reliever Dennis Lamp. No, we’re not kidding. It’s a lot of fun though.

Episode 265: The Macro and The Micro

June 4th, 2021

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back on a more baseball bent this week. They discuss Mike’s article this week about his ranking process, shedding light on how you can use the process to help your own fantasy decision trees. Then the lads spent a few minutes talking about some specific players who have been either good or bad this year against expectations for various reasons.

Episode 264: You’ll Never Dad Alone (Plus Some Baseball Stuff)

May 28th, 2021

Look y’all, we won’t lie to you. After our skipped start last week we’re still feeling some wear and tear on our various joints and ligaments. So this week’s program is more junkball than fastball but it does have some fun stuff to it. Mike, Jon, and Samuel talk a big milestone for a child, then dive into some big picture concerns as the fantasy season charges into June. Plus Mike quotes Bob Dylan. Again.

Episode 263: Injuries, Prospects, Expansions, and Neil Young

May 14th, 2021

If you’re looking for a heater episode, this is probably it. Mike, Jon, and Samuel have a lot to say this week. They start with the recent rash of injuries(aka all of 2021), before moving onto prospect call ups and how to handle those, and finish with an extended conversation about why expansion sounds like a better idea than it is. Also Rob Manfred catches strays as does Neil Young.

Episode 262: How To Lead TGFBI ft BP’s Nathan Grimm

May 7th, 2021

We got ourselves a guest this week! Mike, Jon, and Samuel welcome in Baseball Prospectus colleague and current TGFBI overall leader Nate Grimm onto the show. The lads go through how Nate put together his team, how much good fortune has played in his success so far, and other assorted topics. It’s a frank conversation that gives people a nice look behind the curtain of how industry experts handle prep and success.
