Podcast: The Dodgers Outfield Mess

May 30, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Joc Pederson is ready to play for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Joc Pederson will make the Dodgers outfield situation even muddier. (Michael Murphy)

RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, was rocking and rolling this week as RotoRob’s guest was RotoRob.com writer Michael Seff, making his debut on the MLB Podcast after a couple of appearances on the NFL Podcast.

Among the topics we covered were:

  • Welcome wishes to our new NBA writer, J.R. Anderson.
  • We were bang on with our preseason assessment of Andre Ethier.
  • The Dodgers avoided a big decision when Carl Crawford went on the DL.
  • Michael speculates that Yordano Ventura could come back after Tommy John surgery (assuming he’s heading there soon) throwing even harder.
  • Edwin Encarnacion has completely exploded lately. Please pee into this cup, sir.
  • Paul Maholm started brilliantly last year before crashing and burning; is Mark Buehrle going to follow that model?
  • Nelson Cruz clearly deserves to be an All-Star this season.
  • Texas’ bullpen enjoyed an efficient night.
  • Things continue to get dicey in the late innings for the Tigers.
  • Josh Willingham had a productive day, but also looked at a called third strike to end the game.
  • Jose Bautista has been reduced to second banana in Toronto.

Paul Maholm Loses Limited Appeal as Reliever

May 28, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Well, after a superb start last season, things didn’t go so well for the veteran southpaw as his ERA rose almost three-quarters of a run year-over-year and he wound up getting hurt a couple of times and missing a few weeks.

The Wire Troll: Jaime Garcia is Back in the Win Column

May 25, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Well, he’s slightly outplayed that, likely coming in around top 45 so far, yet he remains available in over half of ESPN and CBS leagues. The Phillies lead-off man the last two games is a bit below pace for his stated goal of 50 to 60 steals, but he’s managed to raise his BA 23 points in the last two games (including a 4-for-4, three-run gem on Saturday) — something that should help him from losing any more PT in centre field.

2014 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Top 65 Prospects, Part IV

May 17, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Sure enough, he spent the entire 2013 season at High-A before being promoted to Double-A this year. Early on this season, Sanchez is dealing with some wildness (26 walks, four hit batsmen and one wild pitch in 43 1/3 IP), but it has not hurt his bottom line results — yet. The righty is Toronto’s top prospect and while he dealt with some shoulder woes last year, he’s generally remained healthy as a pro. Sanchez could be a top of the rotation hurler, but he’ll need to sharpen that command along the way. His record at High-A wasn’t great in 20 starts and a low BABIP (.250) suggests a bit of luck was involved in keeping his ERA below 3.50. Sanchez’s K rate dipped in the AFL (although he made the All-Prospect Team), and so far this year, he’s benefited from a pretty high strand rate. Don’t be fooled by that very low ERA at Double-A as so far his peripherals don’t support it. In a nutshell, we love Sanchez’s K potential (he’s averaged over one per inning), but that control (4.7 BB/9 in his career) needs fixing. He has a perfect pitcher’s build (6′4″, 200).
