TINO (There Is No Offseason)

There Is No Offseason (TINO) is a daily—er, weekly—podcast that devotes itself to dynasty fantasy baseball leagues. It’s hosted by Jesse Roche, who spends far too much time studying scouting reports on teenagers in the Dominican Summer League and poring through minor-league stat leaders. That means he is prepared to find deep sleepers for your dynasty squad. He will answer your questions, judge whether you have won or lost your recent trades, discuss strategy, and inevitably veer onto a well-meaning tangent or two.
