Podcast: The Trade that Shook the World… NOT
B.J. Upton bolted from the Rays for the big Braves bucks.
Another week, another Fantasy baseball Podcast. Ah yes, Thursdays evenings at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio the weekly event that is also known as RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast occurs. And while RotoRob had planned to man the controls this week, BTR — as it is wont to do — had other plans for him, thereby necessitating another rescue by Chris Wassel.
However, fear not. Fantasy baseball topics were covered… topics as diverse as:
- The Royals and Pirates engineered a four-player trade that left us scratching our heads, but we do our best to dissect the deal.
- We talk about the passing of Marvin Miller and the indelible mark he left on the game that has yet to be truly recognized.
- Andy Pettitte has re-signed with the Yanks and we give our two cents on his return.
- Could David Robertson’s value increase given the changes in the Yankee bullpen?
- How Rob Deer’s arrival on the Cubs coaching staff portents a whole lot of Ks between dingers at Wrigley Field.
- Could Xavier Cedeno emerge as the Astro closer if Wilton Lopez leaves or proves unhealthy?
- The Twins and Nats also pulled off a deal, with Washington landing its new lead-off man and Minny getting a much-needed pitching prospect.
