The guys discuss the soon activation of Lance McCullers of Houston and Henderson Alvarez of Oakland. Could they provide a boost to your fantasy pitching staffs.

Matt Harvey is rocking a 5.71 ERA. Nick and T keep it real when it comes to what owners should do in terms of whether to trade or hold.
Injuries and Other musings
The next portion of the podcast deals with the ugly in the past week in baseball. Jon Lester can’t throw to first. Nick makes fun of the Pirates ugly throwback unis.
The fellas then dig deeper into the situations Pablo Sandoval, Rueben Tejada, Shelby Miller, and a few other injured players. Hopefully guys like Bryon Buxton and Charlie Blackmon can get over their early season blues but after the demotion and injuries they may not hold ADP value.

After that we get into adds and drops for fantasy baseball. Matt Moore and Ian Kennedy headline the adds for the week. We discuss why Kennedy of the Royals is a must add. Others include Jeanmer Gomez of The Philadelphia Phillies and Nomar Mazara of the Texas Rangers.
Then we tell you why you should be dropping Brad Miller and Khris Davis. A couple of catchers in Devin Mesorasco of the Cincinnati Reds and Travis D’ Arnarud of the New York Mets should be thrown back to the waiver wire.
