Podcast: Dee Gordon Goes Down

July 6, 2012 | By RotoRob | comment on this post
Wei-Yin Chen is having an All-Star worthy season for the Baltimore Orioles.
Why isn’t Wei-Yin Chen an All-Star?

RotoRob did his best to offend people with unisexual names, Buck snared a foul ball and Tim cut into his vacation time. It all happened this week on RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio.

Among the week’s highlights:

  • Yu Darvish’s selection for the All-Star Game, despite his own insistence that he doesn’t deserve the honour.
  • Dan Haren’s first career DL stint and how perhaps it’s a blessing in disguise.
  • Analysis of the Carlos Lee trade.
  • How hard Jonny Venters has been worked the past couple of seasons and how that may have led to his injury.
  • Shelley Duncan going on paternity leave and whether his wife’s name is Bob.
  • Chris Carpenter’s season-ending surgery and what this may mean for his future prospects.
  • Will Boston part ways with Daisuke Matsuzaka?
  • How the days when you were a closer for life are in the rear view mirror.
  • Chipper Jones’ All-Star selection in his final season.
  • Thanks to Robinson Cano and Ian Kinsler, Jason Kipnis is a major All-Star snub.
  • Is new Oriole Jim Thome an automatic Hall of Famer?
  • Another round of debate about how to treat the Steroid Era players for HoF purposes.
  • Which is the real Aaron Hill?
  • The return of Travis Hafner and whether he’s worth a look in AL-only leagues.
  • The impossibility of typing “Dickey” in the Blogtalkradio chat room.
