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 and with it being the first night of the 2014 MLB Draft, a good chunk of the show was devoted to analyzing the top picks.
Among the topics we broached:
- Welcome to our newest writer, Dakota Case.
- Mark Teixeira is actually a really funny dude.
- We speculate whether Erasmo Ramirez will ever live up the potential he flashed in 2012.
- Brady Aiken projects as a hurler that’s going to be very effective and consistent.
- Tyler Kolek could stand to eat a few less cheeseburgers.
- We offer our take on the first big surprise in the draft, No. 4 pick Kyle Schwarber.
- And follow that up with our scouting report of No. 5 pick Nick Gordon.
- RotoRob talks about the joy of building a keeper team in a league that values high school and college kids.
- Sean Marshall continues to struggle to rediscover his pre-injury form.
- J.A. Happ earned himself an ugly win.
- Grab Marcell Ozuna if he’s available on your wire.
- We discuss the fallout in Detroit now that we know Jose Iglesias won’t return this year.
- We offer up a tribute to the late, great Don Zimmer, one-time Red Sox manager.
