Mike Gianella is joined by BP's Tim McCullough to discuss draft strategies in some of the fantasy expert leagues!
The guys go through their LABR auction recap and talk draft strategies.
The guys discuss all the backstops. Does DH really help NL catchers Bret jumps on the table for Yasmani Grandal, hates Dalton Varsho with the burning passion of 1,000 suns. Mike breaks down Mitch Garver. Adley Rutschman is suspect in terms of value depending on promotion. They refuse to discuss Omar Narvaez and Christian Vazquez, will discuss Gary Sanchez and Elias Diaz. Bret demands a Carson Kelly moment. Will Alejandro Kirk play? Does Mike Zunino really earn the love BP analysts have given him? They close is out with dumpster diving on Max Stassi and Austin Nola. After the show close a quick discussion from Big Journo Bret Sayre shows why he's a one-percenter, diminishing Miracle Whip.
Five Star: Bo Bichette and Fernando Tatis Jr. create some cognitive dissonance.Four Star: Bret gets starry eyed over Xander Bogaerts and Bobby Witt Jr.; Bret and Mike can’t quit Francisco Lindor, accidentally disclose they are Mets fans leading everyone to openly question their sanity. Mike and Bret talk about how Tim Anderson has an extremely Tim Anderson profile. The fabled Trevor Story has left Coors, the heat on him has cooled. Wander Franco: Estimate him at your own peril; Bret compares Franco to Witt. Corey Seager and Carlos Correa are the consummate risk vs reward players. Three Star: Heart attack inducing. Mike and Bret try to focus on the positives of Gleyber Torres, this does not go very well. Our hosts go into the trust tree and discuss the shame of their fondness for Amed Rosario. Mike – like most of our BP analysts – have appreciation for Willy Adames.Two Star: Oneil Cruz has generated excitement. Nicky Lopez is almost adequate and the margin for error is razor thin. Mike has trust issues with Brandon Crawford and Eugenio Suarez; Bret is more willing to be hurt by Suarez. America’s Favorite Game: 1 Star Tier or Off the Board Selection…Bret loves Joey Wendle and Mike feels that Jeremy Pena is completely overlooked. Bret then advocates for Didi Gregorious and Geraldo Perdomo.

Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre are back again talking keystone players to target. Bret puts Trea Turner as a 6 star tier. 2 men enter the Thunderdome to battle over Jazz Chisholm. Tommy Edman is a mystery. Is Whit Merrifield bad? Mike likes Jake Cronenworth IRL, not in his fantasy dreams. The boys dumpster dive and dream on Tony Kemp. Plus so much more!
What year is it? Mike Gianella is joined by Bret Sayre to chat about the base tiers. Is Vladimir Guerrero jr an elite fantasy option even without steals? Would you take Pete Alonso or Matt Olson? And Bret goes off the board to talk up one of the non-beefy Brewers first basemen.

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 Marte for Jesus Luzardo.

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 "Giants" a few time, so there's something you can latch onto. Also Mikey has a great laugh to end the show, so that's worth listening to all of it for. Anyway, enjoy!Got a content idea for the show?

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.Jon's article on Bauer: https://www.baseballprospectus.com/fantasy/article/68081/trevor-bauer-and-the-bartleby-option/Got a content idea for the show?

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 kidding. It's a lot of fun though.Got a content idea for the show?

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.Got a content idea for the show?

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.

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.Got a content idea for the show?
