Podcast: Surprise, Surprise — Jamey Carroll Isn’t a Real Starting Shortstop

May 11, 2012 | By RotoRob | comment on this post
Jamey Carroll has lost his job with the Minnesota Twins.
The Twins finally clued in that Jamey Carroll is not a starting-calibre shortstop.

While RotoRob is lost in playoff anguish, Buck and Tim carry on with RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly, heard each Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio.

In this week’s episode, the boys covered a veritable cornucopia of Fantasy baseball goodness, including:

  • Despite the inexplicable two-year deal they gave him, the Twins finally figured out that Jamey Carroll isn’t anybody’s idea of a real starting shortstop so they’ve brought up prospect Brian Dozier to do the job. Can he provide value for Fantasy owners at a thin position?
  • The Jays’ surprising signing of Vladimir Guerrero and what this could mean for Toronto. Could Vlady take over at DH, sending Edwin Encarnacion back to first base and the struggling — and recently demoted in the lineupAdam Lind to the bench?
  • The pending arrival of Andy Pettitte and whether that is cause for any excitement among the Fantasy ranks.
  • Jayson Werth, who was finally showing signs of life, will now be werth-less after a busted wrist.
  • The great — and surprising — start by the St. Louis Cardinals, a team many wrote off after the loss of Albert Pujols.
  • How the Rays will fare without Evan Longoria and Desmond Jennings?
  • The Jays finally giving Casey Janssen a chance to close.
  • Is Brad Penney a Tim McLeod sleeper now that he pitched in Japan?
  • Boston’s plans for Kevin Youkilis with Will Middlebrooks establishing himself as a legitimate force.
  • Billy Hamilton’s stolen base bonanza at High-A.
  • Yet another rant over baseball’s stupid five-game suspensions for starting pitchers.
  • Could the Phillies actually be sellers at the trade deadline this year?
