I’ve got a double Roundtable post this afternoon as I got too busy with life and whatnot to post the one from last week.
The first one was hosted by Patrick Cain of the Albany Times-Union Fantasy Baseball section. His advantageous location in the heart of New York State politics makes his blog the must read for the Governor and his staff (as in his staff must read it to him – the NY Guvn’r is blind, people! If he can’t see prostitutes, we New Yorkers assume he’s much less likely to frequent them. Wonder if he does the Ray Charles thing and feels their wrists to know if they’re skinny or not?). Anyway, here’s the link and the question:
What cold starts should I be reading into…and why?
I answered this one about 2 weeks ago but my advice seems fairly prescient. Worth checking out.
The second one is from Patrick DiCaprio of FantasyPros911.com - the site that fantasy pros like Grey and I go to only in the case of an emergency. I kid of course as one of the 911 (Mike Podhorzer) is beating me both in an NL league and in the Fantasy Razzball standings (will do a post on the standings later this week). Here’s their link and question:
Whom do you prefer for the remainder of the year, Aaron Hill or Howie Kendrick?
What – you expected Shawn Hill vs. Kyle Kendrick? The answers on this one proved to be rather consistent. Go figure. On a side note, Kendrick would be a tough last name if you were an old Jew because the fellas would all nickname you Schmendrick (the Howie would fit in well too). It would be almost as bad as being JJ Putz or Japanese pitching star Fakokta Mashugana.
