You know how you bought that prosthetic pierced nipple in college? Then, one day, you were at a strong-in-energy kegger and everyone was screaming for you to jump in the pool, but you knew there was a 99% chance your prosthetic pierced nipple would come off and everyone would know you’re a fraud? But you jumped in anyway, and your prosthetic pierced nipple floated away, but, to your surprise, everyone liked you still, without the prosthetic pierced nipple. Lucas Giolito is your tan-lined nipple without the prosthetic piercing. He may get hit around occasionally, he might not always get Ks, but, at the end of the day, Lucas Giolito (6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 13 Ks, ERA at 3.42) is a great, bare-nippled pitcher. His 11.3 K/9, 3.2 BB/9, 3.35 FIP tell me next year he’s going to be a sneaky top 15 starter in 2020, who is forgotten like a prosthetic pierced nipple. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?

This week on the one and only Fantasy Sausage Pod about Baseball, Donkey Teeth travels to Nashville and catches a Triple-A game while B_Don takes in a Twins/Mariners showdown in the Emerald City. The guys discuss some of the stand outs from both of these games: Donkey Teeth shares some thoughts on Genesis Cabrera, Adolis Garcia, Hunter Cole, Eli White, and Lane Thomas while B_Don regales the audience with tales of Byron Buxton’s moonshot grand slam and the grand slam breakfast Miguel Sano ate in at Denny’s.
The Sausage Lover’s also tease next week’s featured profiles of exciting rookie pitchers, Griffin Canning and Corbin Martin. The show is rounded out as usual with some pick up recommendations as B_Don and Donkey share their thoughts on Brendan Rodgers, Cavan Biggio, Kevin Cron, Josh Naylor, Kyle Tucker, Yordan Alvarez, plus the state of the Rangers, Rockies and Braves bullpens. Grab a wiener and tune in!Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve reached the end of the NL Central, and with only one division left to cover I’d say it’s been a productive offseason. The redbirds are in good shape down on the farm – as you’d expect. The top two specs should be flipped and flopped according to your window of opportunity. Reyes will start contributing this season, while Gorman – who I think is the better overall prospect – won’t be ready for harvest until late 2021/2022. Since Opening Day is an ungodly March 28th this year (hooray for postponed games!) I’ll put out a list of prospects you should know for redrafts this Wednesday. Best thing to do is just stay seated and keep refreshing this site until then. No need to burn those precious calories moving.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Blue Jays sort of operate their franchise like your buddy that chases strippers and always ends up with a massive credit card bill to show for it. Sure, sometimes it makes for a once in a lifetime experience (Josh Donaldson), but other times it’s for fleeting exploits with a disappointing outcome (David Price). Only the bill in this case isn’t an actual physical one, but a bare cupboard once chock full of valuable prospects. In recent years, the Jays have upgraded the major league roster for sure, but have seen prospects like Franklin Barreto, Daniel Norris, Jeff Hoffman, and Miguel Castro leave their system. So now we’re left to review a mortgaged farm with a prized cow, a lot of young calves, and some goats. Confused? Me too! Then again is it any more confusing than a team that needs pitching trading away all it’s young pitching? Time to review the Blue Jays Prospects! You’re excited, I can tell…Please, blog, may I have some more?
