Fantasy Baseball Roundtable Radio Show: RecapPosted by Derek Carty at 10:04pm
A couple of nights ago I was a guest on the Fantasy Baseball Roundtable Radio Show. If you weren't able to listen in live, you can listen to a recording of the show here. Thanks to Patrick DiCaprio and Mike Podhorzer of the Fantasy Baseball Generals for having me on. Also on the show was Brian Joura of the Generals and Eric Stashin of RotoProfessor.
The topics on the show included the off-season trade of Edinson Volquez for Josh Hamilton, the likelihood of Victor Martinez bouncing back, Aaron Harang's win total, and each participant's favorite "sell high" candidate. There was also some brief discussion of the Pitch f/x system and of the merits of the rotisserie and head-to-head variety of leagues.
Derek Carty, 23, has also been published by NBC's Rotoworld, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, and USA Today. This season, he'll be contributing to FanDuel and will be linking to all of his work at DerekCarty.com. In his three years competing in expert leagues, he has won 2 titles with 4 top three finishes, including a LABR NL title in 2009, making him the youngest person to ever win a major expert league title. Derek is a proud graduate of the MLB Scouting Bureau's Scout Development Program and is a firm believer in the importance of combining stats and scouting.
