When the fantasy experts are away, the producer will play. Samuel takes over hosting this week with Mike and Jon out.

In are wild ideas about how to change baseball for the...better? Our three band of baseball buddies traipse through their minds to come up with old, new, and som...

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back with a bag of post deadline related things. They start with a discussion of the draft in light of Kumar Rocker's unfair treatment by the Mets, before wondering if abolishing the draft would actually create as much interest among fans as it would fairness among players. After that, they move towards cleaning up some of the big trades that went down around the deadline.

The whole crew is back this week, and what a big week to be back. With just under 48 hours until the deadline at recording time Mike, Jon, and Samuel discuss what's happened so far. That mainly starts with Samuel sadboi'ing over the Joey Gallo trade that broke earlier in the day, which derails the show for a good fifteen minutes. The wheels get back on though, with more trade analysis including a big breakdown on Starling M...

Hi y'all, producer Samuel here. As Mike mentions on the show, I'm on assignment this week so I'm not on the show. That said the show features Mike Gianella, Jon Hegglund, and Mikey Ajeto from Pitcher List talking about...something. I asked what I should look out for and I was told "There are swears." So, there's that. I'm assuming there's some baseball talk in there as well. I heard the word "Gia...

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back after a week off. They start the show with a conversation about how MLB's ineptitude on players like Trevor Bauer is harmful for the fantasy community both now and in the future. They then transition to a discussion of some midseason surprises both good and bad.

Mike, Jon, and Samuel try out something a little different this week where they go around the horn and discuss whatever baseball topic comes to mind. This hardball roulette brings them to Shohei Ohtani's talents and trousers, the recent MLB crypto partnership, what should a quality start actually be, and the foolishness of the sticky stuff enforcement policy.

OK, this is probably the wildest episode of the current era. Mike, Jon, and Samuel start the episode talking about basketball, as one does on a fantasy baseball podcast. Then they pivot to their actual discussion, which is about current trends in the game that were unexpected and how that apply fantasy wise. It goes off the rails shortly after as the lads go into a discussion about journeyman reliever Dennis Lamp. No, we're not...

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back on a more baseball bent this week. They discuss Mike's article this week about his ranking process, shedding light on how you can use the process to help your own fantasy decision trees. Then the lads spent a few minutes talking about some specific players who have been either good or bad this year against expectations for various reasons.

Look y'all, we won't lie to you. After our skipped start last week we're still feeling some wear and tear on our various joints and ligaments. So this week's program is more junkball than fastball but it does have some fun stuff to it. Mike, Jon, and Samuel talk a big milestone for a child, then dive into some big picture concerns as the fantasy season charges into June. Plus Mike quotes Bob Dylan. Again.

If you're looking for a heater episode, this is probably it. Mike, Jon, and Samuel have a lot to say this week. They start with the recent rash of injuries(aka all of 2021), before moving onto prospect call ups and how to handle those, and finish with an extended conversation about why expansion sounds like a better idea than it is. Also Rob Manfred catches strays as does Neil Young.

We got ourselves a guest this week! Mike, Jon, and Samuel welcome in Baseball Prospectus colleague and current TGFBI overall leader Nate Grimm onto the show. The lads go through how Nate put together his team, how much good fortune has played in his success so far, and other assorted topics. It's a frank conversation that gives people a nice look behind the curtain of how industry experts handle prep and success.

Another week, another podcast. On the show this week Mike, Jon, and Samuel talk a return to normalcy both baseball and in life with the rising numbers of vaccinations. Then after that, it's your questions! They talk trading strategies early in the season, surprising hitters, and almost get into a brawl over coffee. It's a lot of fun, we promise.

Back to whatever constitutes normal for the podcast this week Mike, Jon, and Samuel start the show with a discussion on the art of FAAB. They then tackle players that they feel are succeeding early, and players that are not showing out as expected and even pushed pre draft season. There's a lot of interesting discussions in here, both about the specific players and general fantasy analysis.

Look, we're going to level with you this week. Our options were this, or just reading all the injuries that seem to keep happening. So we made our call. Mike, Jon, and Samuel each bring a topic to the show and they kick it around. Today's topics include seven inning games versus shortened seasons, prospects and whether to slow your roll on buying them, and how Covid continues to impact baseball both fantasy and reality.

It's a baseball podcast! With the season a week or so old Mike, Jon, and Samuel talk through what feels like(but maybe isn't) a large amount of injuries to open the 2021 season. The lads talk you through how to handle that from a FAAB and season strategy, and also somehow end up discussing sponsored funerals before finishing up with closers. It's a wild ride, but informative nevertheless.

It's Opening Day, like we are sort of used to! Mike, Jon, and Samuel come to you a day early to give you their thoughts on what is going to happen during the 2021 MLB season. They break down every division and the major awards, with some surprises from each in the mix. They finish out with a questionnaire created by Samuel that probes deeper into the baseball mind in a way that is fun, insightful, and a little depressing also. ...

With the draft season drawing to a close Mike, Jon, and Samuel take stock of how their respective drafts went. There's a good amount of injury talk, Tout discussion, and just general winding down from the stressful selection season. Fret not, as we're just getting started.
