Podcast suggestions (Real & Fantasy) for Baseball

Postby Oregon Nut Cups » Tue Feb 14, 2012 12:38 pm

Hi all, I recently joined the 21st century and got myself a smartphone and have been looking for good podcasts. I have been listening to CBSsports Fantasy Baseball and heard this line and can't find a reason to stay connected (paraphrasing):

Question: 'Can you see yourself drafted the top two catchers in a draft in a two C H2H league?'

Answer: 'I can, I did it one year when I drafted Joe Mauer and Victor Martinez...obviously that didn't work out great, but I think there's enough of an advantage to get two of the top nine.'

*Facepalm*

I like listening to people who make sense and the above doesn't. Lay it on me, fellas!

Oh and if there aren't any, consider this a suggestion to you Razzballians!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.

I listen to a ton of podcasts on the iphone (fantasy focus, CBS, roundtable, etc...). For experts they some crazy stupid things, but I figure if I can get one good piece of information out of an hour long show it's worth it. Plus, it beats the heck out of listening to Cowherd plow through two hours of Randy Moss coming out of retirement talk.

Don't even care what he's talking about, this statement is just true :)

I'm currently subscribed to fangraphs; so far they win for me; I'll listen to those others, minus the ESPN one. I used to stream that at work and just can't stand listening to it anymore. Too much filler with one of them just being full of it...full of filler, of course :) But I get what you mean; which one in particular do you appreciate the most?

If you can stomach the awful production value I find the Fantasy Baseball Roundtable podcast has good information. However, they sound like they record it in a closet filled with bees. Also, the Fantasy 411 podcast touches on some good things.

Well, it worked for the White Stripes, I might as well see how it works for a podcast :)

Thanks!

Still think Razzball should start podcasting :)

They had Beltran for a minute in 2004. 23 homers in 333 at bats is more than Burke hit in his entire career there.

Is your league H2H? Roto?

I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!
