After a week off, RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast — heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio — was back in action as RotoRob was joined by Tim McLeod of Pattonandco.com. BTR was acting particularly bitchy Thursday — kicking us both off multiple times. So please excuse the dead air, but — not to be denied — we return shortly after each absence.

Among the topics we isolated:

  • You’ve got to like Archie Bradley’s MLB debut.
  • Christian Yelich’s back woes were short lived as he finally nabbed his first steal of the season.
  • Tim expects Yelich’s speed to decline and his power to increase as he ages.
  • Chris Capuano will likely take over as the Yankees’ fifth starter — until Ivan Nova is ready.
  • Kennys Vargas finally flashed his immense power.
  • Despite the abundance of outfielders in Milwaukee, the injury to Carlos Gomez will definitely hurt the Brew Crew.
  • Tim expects better days ahead for Jose Altuve, who is finally heating up after a sluggish start.
  • It’s hard enough adjusting to the bigs, but handing a young pitcher a closing gig is asking for trouble.

To hear our Fantasy baseball goodness ooze from your speakers, simply press the play button below.

 

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you thought of our baseball banter.

2014 Relief Pitcher Rankings

April 15, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments Comments Off on 2014 Relief Pitcher Rankings
While it’s true that he is human and will occasionally turn a situation sticky, he remains perfect in save chances early on this year. Okay, so if you want to call his ERA rising two-tenths of a run last year alarming, go ahead. You’re probably also a germaphobe. There aren’t many hurlers that can blow hitters away with such ease as Kimbrel can. Let’s see… 900 hitters have now faced him since he arrived in the majors and he’s struck out 392 of them (44 per cent). What do you think? Kimbrel has been the clear No. 1 on this list for a couple of years now and considering how tough it is to take him yard, we don’t see him going anywhere as long as he’s healthy.

2014 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Second Base Rankings

February 16, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (11)
Kipnis was one of the main reasons why the Indians went from AL Central basement dwellers to finishing a game behind the Tigers for the division title. The 26-year-old quietly had a good year, showing the ability to hit for average and power, drive in some runs, get on base at a good clip, and steal 30 bags. Some owners might find Kipnis to be a better bang for their buck than Cano as you won’t need to use a first round pick on him. As Kipnis enters his fourth big league season, he could be sitting on a breakout year. His ability to steal bases and his power potential make him one of the elite keystone corner dudes in the game. If Kipnis is able to hit over 20 long balls this year, and it’s very possible, come next year, we could see him at the top of this list.

2011 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Relief Pitcher Rankings

March 31, 2011 | by RotoRob | Comments (3)
He was a workhorse last year, and even though his WHIP rose slightly, he was able to cut his ERA by giving up just one freaking homer all season long. Mr. Stingy doesn’t like when fans get a souvenir, apparently. Bell’s strikeout rate has risen the past two years, something Fantasy owners aren’t likely to complain about, but it’s also meant that it’s taking him longer to get through innings, and that’s something that could take a toll down the stretch. As good as Bell has been as a closer, he’s someone that could be traded and wind up in a less significant role on a contender. Food for thought.
