Fantasy sports podcast: Chris Archer frustrations, Josh Bell’s bombs, Mitch Keller call-up?
It’s our weekly fantasy sports podcast with Jeff Erickson of Rotowire. There’s a ton of baseball to discuss.
I don’t like “the opener” concept. I’ll get Erickson’s opinion, and he’ll tell us the fantasy impact.
Significant call-ups across the league are taking place. Pirates farmhand Mitch Keller could be next.
We talk about why the Pirates may be interested in Clint Frazier and Josh Bell’s continued power surge. Bell almost may be playing too well. He could stop seeing good pitches. Perhaps Bell can offset some dip in power production with walks.
Then there is the Chris Archer disappointment. Well, that’s if you believed in him as a fantasy owner in the first place. Erickson didn’t. He tells us why.
The Pirates are getting no help offensively at catcher. But no one else is, either. In fact, catcher has largely been a wasteland for fantasy owners across MLB.
Elsewhere, the Mets are dealing with a slew of injuries. And they aren’t alone. Check out some of the guys banged up in Boston and Chicago.
Plus, a little NFL talk with minicamps underway. Specifically, the Le’Veon Bell fallout in New York after that front-office shake up.
