After a week off, RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast — heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio — was back in action as RotoRob was joined by Tim McLeod of Pattonandco.com. BTR was acting particularly bitchy Thursday — kicking us both off multiple times. So please excuse the dead air, but — not to be denied — we return shortly after each absence.

Among the topics we isolated:

  • You’ve got to like Archie Bradley’s MLB debut.
  • Christian Yelich’s back woes were short lived as he finally nabbed his first steal of the season.
  • Tim expects Yelich’s speed to decline and his power to increase as he ages.
  • Chris Capuano will likely take over as the Yankees’ fifth starter — until Ivan Nova is ready.
  • Kennys Vargas finally flashed his immense power.
  • Despite the abundance of outfielders in Milwaukee, the injury to Carlos Gomez will definitely hurt the Brew Crew.
  • Tim expects better days ahead for Jose Altuve, who is finally heating up after a sluggish start.
  • It’s hard enough adjusting to the bigs, but handing a young pitcher a closing gig is asking for trouble.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you thought of our baseball banter.

Video Game Review: Super Mega Baseball

April 14, 2015 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Do you remember when baseball games were fun? Back before it was all about picturesque recreations of stadiums, lifelike players and tons of statistical minutia. We’re talking the days of Baseball Simulator 1000 and Baseball Stars, where sitting down and basking in the gameplay trumped everything else. Well, if you do, Metalhead Software’s Super Mega Baseball hopes to recreate that fun. And if you don’t, they intend to introduce you to it.

The Wire Troll: Jump on Jake Lamb

April 12, 2015 | by Michael Seff | Comments Comments Off
Lamb is roasting opposing pitching (see video below) to the tune of seven RBI in his first three games. He will get ample opportunities for the young but potent D-back offense, even if his .857 slugging percentage is setting the bar a little high.

Video Game Review: RBI Baseball ‘15

April 12, 2015 | by Casey Curran | Comments Comments Off
Many sports games, like Madden and NBA 2K, strictly adhere to the idea of not fixing something that isn’t broken. The gameplay has, for the most part, been perfected, so what’s left to change each year is mostly the roster along with small tweaks and maybe a new mode or two. RBI Baseball ‘15 tries to follow this model, but they forgot they never perfected their mechanics — or even reached the same level of games made 20 years ago.

2015 RotoRob Shortstop Rankings

April 9, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Tulowitzki is reportedly healthy this spring, but the big test will be in his getting through, say, 150 games without some kind of medical issue. He tore his hip labrum in 2008 and finally had surgery on it last year. Last season, Tulo only managed 375 plate appearances, which is shame as luck was on his side — a .355 BABIP helped him post a .340 BA. Don’t pay for a repeat of that high an average, but there’s no better power source at SS than a healthy Tulowitzki.
