After a one-week Olympics-related absence, RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, returned to infect the airways with our unique blend of Fantasy baseball intelligence and insight. Thanks again to guest RotoRob.com NBA writer Bob Raymond for lending his expertise to the show.

On this week’s show, we discussed:

  • What is Texas thinking having Super Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson as part of its training camp?
  • Cole Hamels has had shoulder discomfort in the past and overcome it. Can he get past it this time?
  • How much will Hiroki Kuroda’s presence help newcomer Masahiro Tanaka?
  • Can Grady Sizemore actually make a successful comeback and hold off youngster Jackie Bradley Jr. in Boston?
  • Brett Oberholtzer enjoyed a nice rookie season. Was it enough for him to earn a rotation spot again in Houston this year?
  • Canadian prospect Jordan Lennerton keeps sticking around as he nears his big league chance.
  • The Red Sox took some time, but finally got the bats going in their 11th annual showdown against Northeastern.
  • Keep an eye on Royals pitching prospect John Lamb as he tries to resurrect his career.

Listen to the show in all its cheeky yet edifying glory by clicking that groovy triangle thingy below.

 

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below whether you think we hit the mark or not.

Should Jeff Bagwell and Jack Clark be in the HoF?

February 25, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
“The new metrics have a real important place, just don’t exaggerate them, and I think they get exaggerated at times. Like with Jack Morris, and maybe Bagwell.”

2014 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Shortstop Rankings

February 21, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Tulowitzki is easily the most dangerous hitting shortstop in the game today. Despite the Coors Field stigma (which is somewhat true) Tulo is better than the field. His major issue is health. If you have owned him in the past, you know what we are saying. If Tulowitzki can actually stay on the field, 30 homers and 100 RBI are easily within his grasp. (Take a look at his mechanics in the video below to get an idea of his power.) His career OPS of 877 should be higher but health issues over the years has likely put a dent in it. While we don’t have the foresight to see that he will appear in 150+ games, we do know that if he does you will be a proud and contending owner. Tulowitzki is annually a slow starter but don’t lose faith because remember you drafted him high. After all, this dude’s career BABIP and OBP numbers would be great for a first baseman — never mind a middle infielder. Gamblers roll the dice and they don’t fear what hasn’t already happened.

Poker sure has come a long way in the past decade or so. Once perceived as merely a parlour game, it is now achieved sport status in North America. Turn on any sports channel during non prime time hours and you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about.

MLB Today: Ubaldo Jimenez Finally Finds a Home

February 18, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Just 30, Jimenez clearly has life left in his arm, although given his massive career swings, it’s hard to approach him with the utmost of confidence. His strand rate last year suggested some luck was in order, but not so much that we can see his ERA rising over 4.00. Even accounting for the move to Baltimore, the worst we can see from Jimenez this season is an ERA of around 3.95.
