This week on RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, RotoRob was joined by Joel Henard, owner of The Fantasy Insiders, who brought with him a bevy of anecdotes that made for a very entertaining show. Hell, even his wife listened to the whole thing!
Among the topics we covered were:
- Next week only, the Fantasy Baseball Podcast will switch times with the Fantasy Football Podcast (Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. EST), so that our pigskin peeps can cover the NFL draft live.
- RotoRob expounds the virtues of Storify.
- Nothing in Martin Perez’s advanced statistics tell us he’s going to crash and burn.
- We are surprised by how many games Brandon Webb won before injuries suddenly ended his career.
- There is a massive opportunity to scoop Jose Quintana off the wire and roll with him.
- RotoRob helps Joel rationalize taking an owner to the bank with a recent trade.
- Dan Haren earned a win despite less than stellar command.
- Defense does matter to Fantasy owners only in so much as a player playing his way out of a position.
- Gregory Polanco is on his way, and sharp Fantasy owners are stashing him already.
- Tony Sanchez has had to overcome a lot to get to where he is now.
- Robbie Ray will make his MLB debut for the Tigers on Tuesday.
- Devin Mesoraco is making progress from his hamstring injury.
- Tim McLeod’s land-standing push to make holds a staple of all leagues.
