The year is 2020, the day February 19th. Ron Rigney has fled the podcast because he knew what awaited the boys as they talk the outfielders being drafted outside of the top 30. But Nate, Van, and special guest Eric Cross were not as wise, as they stuck around to analyze these players, good and bad. Two hours and many beverages later, the boys were able to put a bow on this groundbreaking episode. You’ll hear how much Eric and Nate like Lourdes Gurriel, how much Van enjoys the thought of Oscar Mercado on his fantasy team, and to keep things light there’s plenty of talk about horse meat.
Van Lee is busy washing his comforter but Nathan Dokken and Ron Rigney are joined this week by Fantrax HQ’s own Eric Cross! They lend their opinions on the Top 30 Outfielders for 2020 per Fantrax ADP. Can you draft Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton at their ADP’s given the health risk? Is Bryce Harper actually underrated now? Is Andrew Benintendi terrible? How high would we take Luis Robert? So many questions and so little time to answer, so you should probably just listen to the episode.
Shortstop is considered a very deep position this year but do Nate, Van, and Ron (mostly) agree with that consensus? Tune in to find out! The boys get together to talk (arguably) the second most demanding position in the game and analyze ADPs with some of the game’s premiere players. You’ll hear about top names like Trevor Story, Francisco Lindor, and Trea Turner, but also some analysis on lower tier players like Paul DeJong, Dansby Swanson, and Mauricio Dubon! Check out who the boys like, hate, and just plan choose to ignore.
Nate, Ron, and Van have made it to third base! Use your imaginations! For the less childish out there this means that they have taken a long hour to sit down and discuss their favorite options at the position as well as overall strategy, busts, bargains, and more!
“Second base might be my least favorite position,” says Van. “I agree, it isn’t great.” says Nate. They then decide to spend nearly 2 hours discussing the position on this edition of the Nasty Cast! Nate, Ron, and Van highlight targets as well as busts, and explain why you should or shouldn’t pony up for players at the keystone!
The Nasty Boys move right along with their positional previews on today’s show as they talk the first base position! Using Fantrax ADP Nate, Ron, and Van chug right down the list talking Bellinger, Rizzo, Muncy, and more giving you their favorite bargains, busts, and much more!
On the first light of the 8th day, as you look to the east you see… the return of the Nasty Cast! We’re back baby and we’re better than ever as on today’s show Nate, Ron, and Van bring all the snarky responses and excellent analysis that you’ve come to love on the first episode of the 2020 season. The boys talk their favorite buys from the catching position as well as busts, good values, and much, much more!
On the season finale of the Nasty Cast, Nate, Ron, and Van look back at 2019 and give you their fantasy MVP and Cy Young winners! They also talk their waiver wire add of the year and their pick for a 2020 bounceback. Thanks to everyone who tuned in for this season of the Nasty Cast (the 6th? 7th?) and stay tuned for the boy’s plans for the offseason and next year. Until then, may the… yeah you know the rest!
We’re almost done! With so little baseball left the Nasty Cast is winding down for the 2019 season but before we bow out we have one last waiver wire segment for you with names like Garrett Hampson, Shed Long, Austin Voth, and even a surprise showing from Jose Ramirez. Nate, Ron, and Van also take time for a BS segment, where the boys discuss their favorite movies you have to watch when you catch them on TV. Find out who likes the Shawshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, Dragnet, and more!
(Baseball fans who don’t like to have fun can stop the show at the 30:25 mark, while fans who hate baseball but love movies can tune in starting at that same time!)
Injuries have befallen a slew of superstars here to end their seasons so the boys tackle the futures of Mike Trout, Christian Yelich, Javier Baez, and more. They also go over some returning players, talk about Art Howe, and discuss some strategies for your leagues for these final few weeks!
