After a one week absence to deal with real world madness, RotoRob Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast, heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, returned as RotoRob was joined newly minted RotoRob.com MLB Editor Michael Seff.

Among the bases we covered this week:

  • Team RotoRob is about to welcome a new NBA writer, Steve Krebs.
  • Joe Adcock came inches away from being the only big leaguer to ever hit five homers in a game.
  • Jayson Werth had an injury scare this week.
  • Austin Jackson got pulled off the field and sent to Em City.
  • As per usual, the Padres struggled to get hits.
  • Jake Arrieta tossed yet another gem.
  • Bud Norris pitched very well, but was overshadowed by Tyler Skaggs’ ill-fated no-hitter.
  • Could Jon Lester actually come back to Boston this winter? It’s not as absurd as it sounds.
  • Boston’s World Series rotation from 2013 is pretty much all gone now.
  • Michael reminisces about how former big league catcher Brent Mayne once came in and pitched in relief, just as John Baker did for the Cubs this week.
  • The Rays have a long way to go and a lot of teams to hop over to get back into the playoff picture.
  • For instant replay, should the umpires or a command centre make the final call?
  • Watch for continued analysis of the baseball season at DraftAmerica.com.

Draftster Recommendations: July 29

July 29, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
There’s good reason for CarGo to be so discounted considering all the injuries this year have limited him to 10 homers in his worst season since he was a rookie with the A’s. He missed two games this weekend because of an ankle woe, came back Monday and looked very rusty (0-for-4 with two Ks), dropping his BA to a butt-ugly .152 mark over the last 20 games. So why in the hell would we recommend the struggling Gonzalez? Well, how about his career 7-for-9 mark with six RBI against Jackson? Climb aboard the CarGo express at such an inexpensive cost.

Draftster Recommendations: July 22

And lately, he’s been smacking the Rangers around (10-for-23 in the last five games), so go ahead and invest the $9,200 it will take to land him.

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

July 21, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
The Pirates’ first rounder from 2010 is still only 22, so we maintain our belief in him as a top 10 prospect despite this setback which derails any value he might have had this year. Now, we’ll have to wait until 2015 before this talented hurler is unleashed on the majors. This kid has the potential to average better than a strikeout per inning, and the valuable experience he accrued at Double-A last year should allow him to hit the ground running as soon as he’s healthy. Taillon hasn’t put together impressive won-loss records in the minors, but we’re not worried. A mid-season Eastern League All-Star last year, he really helped alleviate our worries about home run issues last year — and that was the one weakness he had. Every other part of the towering 6′6″ righty’s game should translate well into the bigs when he arrives.
