Should Trout go number 1? How far has Arenado fallen? These questions and more are answered on today’s Launch Angle podcast! Jeff, Rob, and Van start off by taking a look at some dire injury news from around the game with Yelich, Baez, and Buxton all done for the year, they also discuss Noah Syndergaard’s preference in catchers, and they wrap up the show by analyzing the Nasty Cast Fantasy Baseball Podcast’s too early mock draft that Van was a part of.
Guests! Guests everywhere! On today’s edition of the Nasty Cast Nate, Ron, and Van welcome Bubba Entrekin (of Benched with Bubba fame) and Shelly Verougstraete (of Rotographs, Pitcher List, etc fame) to the show for a spectacular mock draft! The crew drafts the first few rounds of the 2020 fantasy baseball season and spoiler alert, it is bonkers!
Van is back and the @NastyCastPod crew is running strong! On today’s show Jose Ramirez and his horrific injury are a big topic as Nate, Ron, and Van discuss his replacements on the Indians as well as his 2020 value. They also go over the promotion of prospect Nick Solak, some waiver wire options, and discuss whether or not Jose Urena as a closer is a good idea.
Nate and Steve Gardner hold down the fort while Van is away and Ron pops in and out due to an alien invasion! Actually, it was just some inclement weather that cost Ron to miss a segment, but otherwise, everything went smoothly as USA Today’s Steve Gardner joined the show to discuss the 2020 value of Chris Sale and Fernando Tatis, Jr. They also weight the 2019 value of recent call-ups Jake Fraley and AJ Puk, go over some bullpens, and discuss the week’s biggest waiver wire adds.
“The Braves are smart!” said the boys of the Nasty Cast. “What a great way to bolster a bullpen!” they claimed. Then this past week happened. So Nate, Ron, and Van decide to revisit the Atlanta bullpen and discuss what is going on and how it should shake out in the coming weeks. They also discuss some nice names being added on the waiver wire this week including Aristides Aquino, JD Davis, Ian Happ, and more!
The nastiest boys around have a lot to talk about on today’s show, and boy do they deliver. Well, I guess they do anyway. Nate, Ron, and Van talk about the value of guys like Isan Diaz, Dustin May, and Trent Grisham, and they also go over all of the “A” named players available on the waiver wire before finishing off with a slew of bullpens and their confidence in who is manning them.
Gene McCaffrey of The Athletic was kind (or foolish) enough to join the boys of the Nasty Cast on this very special trade deadline recap show! Ron, Nate, Van, and Gene discuss a bunch of the deals from the day touching on the Trevor Bauer trade, Zack Greinke’s last minute blockbuster, and everything in between! Stay tuned to hear who they think is closing in Atlanta and also to hear Ron rage about the Rays!
200 episodes in the books! Nate, Van, and Ron bask in the glory of merely existing for a long time by announcing a special giveaway for the show. They also take time to actually talk baseball (in between drinking) and discuss Tyler O’Neill, Homer Bailey, and next year’s value of Tyler Glasnow and Luis Severino!
It’s All-Star Break week here and the boys of the Nasty Cast are taking it easy! Well, kind of. They still show up to go over a little bit of what’s going on in MLB as they talk some waiver wire adds, and debate the merits of Danny Salazar in 2019.
The Nasty Cast boys have a lot to talk about on today’s show as they discuss call-ups of Brendan McKay, Dylan Cease, and Jose Urquidy! They also go over Nate Eovaldi as a closer, German Marquez’s struggles at home, and talk about Fantrax’s most added players! Join Nate, Ron, and Van for all the best the Nasty Cast has to offer!
