We're joined by Ariel Cohen, creator of the ATC projection system, to break down which guys fantasy baseball managers should be scooping up before or soon after Opening Day. Is Tyler Rogers (6:31) primed to be the Giants' closer and does Elieser Hernandez (28:14) have the stuff to be the Marlins' top SP or will his unimpressive fastball and inability to prevent hard contact doom him? The duo spends the final third of th...

With roughly three weeks to go until the start of the season, we team up with Chris Meaney of Fade the Noise to share insight into our favorite draft targets. Matt Olson (6:19) may be one of the more underrated pure power hitters in the game, Andrew Benintendi (21:03) might be primed to bounce back after a disappointing 2019 campaign, and Jorge Polanco (30:39) appears to be extremely undervalued considering his strong metrics and t...

Today we talk with Al Melchior, host of The Athletic's Fantasy Baseball in 15 Podcast, about which players will see their values rise or fall the most because of the 60-game season. Avisail Garcia's (7:20) and Dylan Carlson's (23:51) values both drastically increase due to the universal DH and a schedule filled with pitcher-friendly ballparks is primed to hurt Willy Adames (33:02). Later on, we examine closer situations...

Mike Podhorzer of RotoGraphs returns to the show as we analyze which players have the best chance to bounce back this season. Why is Justin Upton (6:39) worth the risk after his career-worst 2019 campaign, how come Manny Machado (17:09) is being taken around pick 60 despite his consistency, and is poor durability all that prevents Garrett Richards (31:39) from being a solid option?

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
