Rounding Third Podcast
Nick and T open the show with a moment of silence for Prince. We reflect on the influence Prince had on music, sports and us as individuals.
Shifting gears to baseball we open the discussion assessing Jake Arrieta’s value after pitching a no hitter a week ago. Is he the new No. 2 pitcher behind Clayton Kershaw?
Can the hot starts of Kenta Maeda and Mark Trumbo continue? What are owners to do about the slow starts of Andrew McCutchen, Todd Frazier, Gerrado Parra, and a few others high to mid round draft selections.
Injuries and other Musings
Michael Brantley and Homer Bailey both return soon from lengthy DL stints. Can either of these guys provide value for your seasonal fantasy baseball teams?
If the injuries to Yoenis Cespedes, Carlos Carrasco, Billy Hamilton, and Yovanni Gallardo have hurt your team, Nick and T offer up advice on whether you should keep, trade, or drop them.
Add and Drops
The fellas then ponder why guys like Jake Lamb and Zack Cozart are criminally underowned. Other adds for the week include Yasmani Grandal, Travis Shaw, Yasmany Tomas.
Breaking down the drops for the week Nick and T explain why you should drop guys like Marcel Ozuna, Howie Kendrick, and Evan Gattis.
