After taking a week off for the NHL Playoffs, RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, returned this week with a special episode. Not only was RotoRob reunited with RotoRob.com NFL Editor Vaney Hariri, but they were joined by guest Bob Kendrick, President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

A spirited discussion ensued, covering topics as diverse as:

  • Kudos to Hockey Editor Chris Wassel for another fantastic season of NHL coverage on RotoRob.com.
  • Michael Pineda will not appeal his 10-game suspension for mistaking pine tar with cologne.
  • Bob tells us about the NLBM’s new Hall of Game initiative.
  • Institutional racism no longer keeps blacks out of the game; now, it’s supply and demand, he explains.
  • Bob talked about some of the MLB black superstars that began their careers in the Negro League, like Willie Mays.
  • It wasn’t until 1975 that Frank Robinson became the first black manager in MLB history.
  • Vaney wonders how we get back to the point where the players are more important than the numbers.
  • Bob regales us with tales of how powerful Josh Gibson was.
  • Watching the broadcasters tabulate Yunel Escobar’s ill-fated at-bat Tuesday and the seeing the umpires come to a different conclusion only added to the black eye baseball took on this embarrassing instant replay episode.
  • We dissect White Sox ace Chris Sale’s injury and how worried you should be.
  • You probably missed your chance to pick up Martin Perez.
  • Corey Kluber is sure to be a popular waiver wire pick this week.
  • Miguel Cabrera is coming around, thereby slamming shut that buy-low window.
  • All the gains Curtis Granderson made with the Yankees seem to have been given back with the Mets.
  • Two struggling squads squared off as the Diamondbacks and Cubs met on Thursday.
  • Carlos Gomez is the new leadoff hitter in Milwaukee.
  • Vaney talks about Joba Chamberlain’s emotions getting in the way of his potential.
