RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, was back in action as RotoRob’s guest once again was RotoRob.com writer Michael Seff. Other than a typical BTR technical glitch, the show went swimmingly.

Among the issues we broached were:

  • Hello? Don’t forget to follow Michael on Twitter.
  • Mickey Mantle’s career disintegrated pretty quickly.
  • You can’t say enough about Derek Jeter’s ability to lead by his work ethic.
  • We suffer another of those all-too-common BTR technological fuck-ups, getting dropped from the Podcast momentarily.
  • The Medicine Man that Rays manager Joe Maddon brought in, literally made it rain in the ’80s (and not in a Pacman Jones, strip club kind of way).
  • Michael questions whether Yunel Escobar brings it every day from a mental perspective.
  • Juan Carlos Oviedo has never been harder. Could he steal the closer gig in Tampa Bay?
  • Is David Price finally going to be shipped out by the Rays?
  • If Brian Dozier tops out at .260, but becomes a 30-30 man, is anyone going to complain?
  • The Phillies have turned things around with a sweep of the Padres.
  • Ervin Santana had one of those ugly Coors starts.
  • Hunter Pence was raking on Thursday.
  • Only rain could slow down the Pirate onslaught.

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

June 12, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (1)
Polanco has recently shifted from CF to RF, so yes, we suppose he needed a bit of time to adjust to that. Still, adding Polanco is the kind of move that could spur a turnaround and get the Buccos right back in the playoff chase. Last year, he was extremely productive at High-A, forcing a promotion to Double-A and even a two-game stint at Triple-A. This year, Polanco has already surpassed his homer output from Double-A, while racking up a ridiculous 86 hits in his first 62 games. Signed out of the Dominican in 2010, he’s got tremendous speed (130 steals in 408 minor league games) and the athleticism to become a serious star.

Diamond Stocks: Josh Tomlin Rocking

June 9, 2014 | by Michael Seff | Comments (0)
He is unowned in ESPN leagues and owned by 1 per cent of CBS leagues, but the man whose name translates to Greg White in English has actually been remarkable in his full outings. Blanco has five multi-hit games in his last six starts, and is 14 for his last 31 overall (.452), with a respectable OPS of 688 for the season and six stolen bases. Fantasy owners in need of a quick fix in the outfield should stay thirsty for his services.

The Wire Troll: Now Playing Shortstop in Detroit…

June 8, 2014 | by Tim McLeod | Comments Comments Off
Surprisingly, the Twins have signed the former Mariner to a pro-rated one-year $12-million deal. Who saw this one coming? Morales’ ownership levels are currently at 46 per cent in CBS and 16 per cent in ESPN, so there still is an opportunity to grab some solid power numbers for the second half. If he’s available in your league he should be the top FAAB priority this week.

RotoDerby Update: Edwin Encarnacion Crushing it

June 7, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments Comments Off
After laying a big fat zero for us in April, Edwin Encarnacion exploded in May with 16 homers, 34 RBI and just 15 strikeouts. Interestingly enough, his BABIP went from .312 in April to .195 in May, so basically it was an all-or-nothing month. In fact, half of EE’s hits were homers in May (97 points).
