Podcast: The Arrival of Manny Machado

Bobby Valentine could be in trouble with the Boston Red Sox.
Is Bobby Valentine going to be sent packing soon?

Another Thursday has come and gone and that means Buck, Tim and I convened for another episode of RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio. Despite Tim’s best efforts to get RotoRob off his game (by distracting him with talk of gummy-bear topped chocolate chip cookies), the show went more or less seamlessly, as we once again tackled a whole host of Fantasy baseball related issues, including:

  • The irony that will be the thief of Rob’s bike getting killed because the brakes don’t work.
  • Buck and Tim’s quest for a free entry to First Pitch Arizona.
  • Are teams becoming more willing to bring extremely young prospects to the majors?
  • Brett Lawrie’s oblique injury which has finally sent him to the DL and whether we should be disappointed with his 2012 season compared to what he showed last year.
  • How injuries have decimated the Red Sox’s chances this year.
  • When will Tampa Bay’s Jim Hickey get his due as an excellent pitching coach?
  • The long-awaited return of Evan Longoria and how important that is to the Rays’ chances.
  • Mike Stanton’s triumphant return and his historic exploits despite knee surgery.
  • David Ortiz’s pending return and how he’s obviously far from done given what he’s done this year.
  • The reasons why the Red Sox are struggling and what it means to the future of Manager Bobby Valentine.
  • The Twins’ recent offensive surge and whether they can make some noise down the stretch.
  • How starting pitching has forced the Cleveland Indians off the rails.
  • Whether Detroit’s recent run at home will propel it to another division title in the AL Central.
  • Chipper Jones’ last hurrah and how well it’s been going for the soon-to-be-retiring vet.
  • The Dodgers’ acquisition of Joe Blanton and whether he can be a difference maker in the NL West.
  • We try to help a caller identify some available pitchers that can provide holds and the occasional save.
