Episode Breakdown:

  • Intro-Here I somehow forget the spelling of Seth’s Twitter handle as I see Ryan Braun get injured on my computer.  It gets better, I swear.
  • Get to know our guest Seth Klein a little.
  • News and Notes.  Fantasy analysis and reaction to these topics:  Big A’s and Cubs Trade.  Brandon Belt returns from the DL for the Giants.  Corey Hart comes off the DL for the Mariners.  Nolan Arenado came back Thursday for the Rockies.  Joey Votto looks hobbled and isn’t hitting for any power.  Chris Davis’s Batting Average almost dips below .200.  David Wright was supposed to return on Friday, but wasn’t able to.  Joe Smith has a decent week as the Angels closer.  Hanley Ramirez finally returns to the Dodgers lineup.  Solarte gets sent to the minors and Zelous Wheeler gets called up. Kike Hernandez and Domingo Santana get the call for the Astros.  Oscar Taveras returns to the Cards from the Minors.  Xander Bogaerts struggling offensively since the move to 3B.

  • The Coach’s Office: Q1) Is Chris Davis a buy low or should I look elsewhere for upside?  Q2) Do we think Jason Grilli gets a shot to close? 16 Team 5 x 5 Roto.                Q3)  What’s your thoughts on cock blocking trades?  A listener feels like one guy in his league only gets involved in trades when he’s almost sealed a deal.
