Howard grew up in NYC as a Thurman Munson fan (Notinhalloffame.com).
RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast returned this week, sans RotoRob, who was off at the Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet concert. However, RotoRob MLB Editor Tim McLeod took the controls and entertained our listeners with guest Howard Bender of RotoBuzzGuy fame.
Among the topics covered this week:
- The top of the Yankees order has been doing an amazing job of getting on base in the past few weeks.
- Tim laments the Montreal Expos.
- Howard would like to see Sonny Gray go to his changeup and slider a bit more often.
- Howard loves what Manager Ron Washington has done in Texas.
- Is Rickie Weeks done like dinner?
- Andrew Cashner is finding that less can be more.
- Andrew Bailey has haunted Howard over the years.
- The guys warn you about some players that are likely to be overhyped next spring, a la Brett Lawrie a couple of years ago.
