How We Spend Our Off Season

I have to admit it, as much as I love doing the podcast, it sure is nice to get a bit of a break over the winter. That being said, we won’t be doing much relaxing around here. Instead, this off season we will be spending our time trying to improve the podcast in a number of ways. Except for the Doctor, of course… he will be spending his time gearing up for a full season of run line, parlays and MLB baseball betting. He loves that stuff. 

No doubt, we will get a lot of side bets going (as we always do). Our baseball bets from this past year resulted in Chris sweeping the Doctor in all side bets that were wagered. No word yet on how the Doctor will pay up. Also, for the 2015 fantasy baseball season, the Doctor has guaranteed a victory for himself in the podcast listener league. Being as he hasn’t even made the playoffs in the last 2 years, this aught to be good. 

In our “spare” time, we decided to run a survey about the show. We asked you all about the podcast as we are trying to determine how we can make things better for you. If you’d like to have your say, you can access the survey at this link:


We’ll be back with a new season of shows beginning in February. Our first show of the 2015 season will feature keepers for the upcoming year. We’ll talk about different keeper options, focus on questions from listeners and look at sleepers and busts as well. 

After the initial episode, we will start with the ever-popular previews for each position. After we make our way around the diamond, we will begin our regular season shows complete with all of the segments you have come to know over the years we’ve been doing the show.

We also plan to put together a full line-up of some of the best guests in the fantasy baseball community to come on the podcast and discuss everything from waiver wire pitchers, hot/cold streaks, player analysis and answer your questions.


We’re looking forward to next year. We hope you enjoy the off season and we look forward to producing a new season of shows in a few short months.
