Podcast: Felix Hernandez’s Turn for Perfection
Tim was quite impressed with Matt Harvey.
There was plenty to talk about in this week’s episode of RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast (heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio) as the day before we aired, baseball witnessed something magical and something downright stinky. Buck, Tim and I broke it all down, covering, among other topics, the following:
- RotoRob’s new bike and how it’s beating him up.
- Another round of pimping of RotoMan’s superb pubs, Fantasy Football Guide and Fantasy Baseball Guide.
- Felix Hernandez becoming the third pitcher to throw a perfect game this season and how he is in the early part of his process of becoming one of the all-time greats.
- Analyzing what’s behind this recent wave of pitching domination.
- Performance enhancing drugs have reared their ugly head again with the suspension of Melky Cabrera.
- Buck’s Red Sox Nation bias comes through again.
- Neil Walker’s quietly great season and how his current finger woe might affect that.
- Tim questions whether anything has changed given that David Ortiz is not allowed to do any running currently.
- The prognosis for the rest of the season for slumping and dentally-challenged Josh Reddick.
- The fact that the returning Jaime Garcia is still widely available in Fantasy leagues.
- Buck’s admiration for Paul Konerko and how he just keeps getting it done.
- Whether Tampa Bay’s pitching will allow it to make a serious push at the Yankees.
- Brandon Inge’s injury and how that may actually hurt the A’s as he’s turned out to be a surprisingly vital cog in Oakland’s recovery.
- Can Derek Lowe actually prove to be a useful commodity for the Yanks?
- If Scott Baker spent a year in Japan, would he make Tim’s sleeper list?
- RotoRob defends Theo Epstein’s moves that led to Boston winning the 2004 World Series.
