RotoGraphs Audio: The Sleeper and the Bust 07/22/2014

Episode 145

The latest episode of “The Sleeper and the Bust” is now live! Eno Sarris and Nicholas Minnix discuss the Chase Headley trade; trade rumors (and the fantasy implications of them) involving A.J. Burnett, John Danks, and the relievers on the market; what Michael Cuddyer’s possible return might mean; the latest trips to the DL, among them Matt Cain’s; the Toronto Blue Jays’ call-up of Aaron Sanchez; interesting news about Garrett Richards and Jason Kipnis; and bits on some requested topics, comprised of observations on Justin Verlander (you may want to hear this), Adam Wainwright, Dallas Keuchel, and Chris Coghlan.

As usual, don’t hesitate to tweet us or comment with fantasy questions so that we may answer them on our next episode.

Thanks to Ian Miller, aka Teen Archer, for the intro/outro music. Approximately 81 minutes of joyous analysis.

    Thanks for the Chris Coghlan info, if you guys get a chance do you think Gregory Polanco is due to rebound or is this another case of a young guy struggling to adjust to adjustments teams and pitchers have made to him? He has been pretty bad for the last month and while I am a pretty patient owner, a months sample size is enough to get me to worry somewhat. Thanks.

    It was great finally getting to hear Eno “ummming” his way crisply and cleanly throughout the podcast. Now let’s get back to the good banter.

    can you guys comment on whether Paxton is worthwhile now that he is due up in a couple of weeks?

    A tidbit I noticed about Kyle Hendricks’ first two starts in MLB that might be worth discussing: he has thrown his change-up more than any other pitch, 3x the number of any other individual pitch, according to Pitch F/X! 3x more changeups than fastballs for a starter?! What does this mean? Is it just a two-start anomaly? How often has this happened for other pitchers?

    in the past I think Eno commented that deGromm was good for a couple of starts (now past) and he has pitched great. He has some tougher matchups and would love an update on whether he is a start-all-the-time guy or still a matchup guy. Thx
