The 2019 All-Star break is over, commemorating baseball's unofficial mid-way point and that means one thing for fantasy owners and real GMs alike: it's trading season.
Scott Pianowski invites Yahoo Sports' very own lead NFL connoisseur Frank Schwab to shed the pigskin for the day and talk some fantasy baseball before the football season kicks into full gear. They start the conversation with the major strategic differences between fantasy baseball and football and why baseball tends to reward more skilled owners (8:00).
Diving into the 2019 MLB season, Scott and Frank discuss their strategies at starting pitcher and how they've attempted to solve the position in this era of home run or bust (17:20).
Later, they try to find the upside in the roster of the recently flagging Milwaukee Brewers (24:55) and then discuss how they can better evaluate rookies who seem to be blowing up and becoming fantasy relevant at an alarming rate (27:45). They close out the baseball portion of the show breaking down the aforementioned trading season and what they're seeing in both the majors and in fantasy leagues (34:05).
To wrap up the show, Scott and Frank draft their favorite installments of 30 for 30 (45:05).
