2020 Fantasy Baseball Transactions and Draft Strategy
They begin by talking about the Free Agents who have signed this offseason including…
– Gerrit Cole signs with the New York Yankees
– Hyun-Jin Ryu signs with the Toronto Blue Jays
– Madison Bumgarner signs with the San Francisco Giants
– Anthony Rendon signs with the Los Angeles Angels
– Josh Donaldson signs with the Minnesota Twins
Next, they cover the trades including…
– Corey Kluber to the Texas Rangers
– Starling Marte to the Arizona Diamondbacks
All three close out the show talking some draft strategy
– Does the Houston Astros getting caught for sign stealing hurt their 2020 value?
– Will the “juiced ball” continue? If so does that put less of a premium on home runs?
– With home runs increasing, strikeouts also increased. Does that also put less of a premium on strikeouts?
– Steals are on the decline again. Smart to target early or wait?
Be sure you follow them both on Twitter.
