Podcast: Examining the Halladay Deal
I was kicking back and working on finishing up some projects (yes, RotoRob, the rankings) when a call came in from the Godfather of Fantasy Baseball himself, Lenny Melnick, who apparently has hit the DL with a serious case of laryngitis. I was thrilled to be asked to pinch hit for the evening with Kevin Orris on the Fantasy Baseball Live show on blogtalkradio. Get well soon, Lenny!
Kevin and I got the show rolling with a lively discussion on the recently completed blockbuster deal involving Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee while touching on the potential ramifications from a Fantasy perspective. We also discussed the recent expert mock draft held over at Mock Draft Central and why Albert Pujols is, not should be, the No. 1 pick.
Moving forward, we touched on some of the many different and unique strategies we’ve seen in the slow mock draft that Kevin, myself and fellow RotoRob contributer Todd Habiger are partaking in over at FantasyBaseballTrademarket.com. What happens when a draft is filled with participants that are all of the same mind-set from a strategy perspective?
For those that are playing in deeper formats, I was afforded the opportunity to discuss some of the recent wave of Cuban pitchers that are currently flying a bit under the radar. Remember the name Yuniesky Maya folks, he could be worth the wait!
In closing, we briefly touched on the recent acquisition of Mike Cameron by the Boston Red Sox. Is he a relative value or potential bust for Fantasy players in 2010?
