Podcast: All-Star Voting
Yangervis Solarte’s magical run came to an end this week. (Tim Clayton, The New York Times)
This week on RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, RotoRob was joined by RotoRob.com MLB/NFL writer Michael Seff, and despite some dead air issues thanks to Rob’s frigging Skype issue, everything went swimmingly.
Among the issues we covered:
- Expect plenty of post-draft coverage on RotoRob soon — in a wide range of sports.
- The Cardinals have been a pretty inept offensive club this season.
- Michael thinks Khris Davis may deserve some All-Star love based on his solid power numbers.
- Troy Tulowitzki is running away with the NL shortstop vote, and deservedly so.
- Josh Donaldson is proving last year was no fluke.
- Mark Teixeria is having a bounce back year, but is not All-Star worthy.
- No, he does not deserve it based on 2014, but who would deny Derek Jeter’s right to get his final All-Star hurrah as the starter?
- Nelson Cruz sure has been the beneficiary of a forgive and forget public.
- Hiromoto Okubo sounds like a combination of Billy Martin and Bobby Knight.
- It’s great to see Steve Pearce bust out for B-More.
- The Phillies rallied to snap a six-game losing skid.
- Yu Darvish was pushed back a day after a rain delay Thursday.
