James Paxton decided to get his yearly injury out of the way fairly early this season, and combined with Jameson Taillon getting hurt the boys lament pitching injuries. Join Nathan Dokken, Ron Rigney, and Van Lee as they also discuss Ohtani vs Olson, decide to hold or drop names like Darvish and Peraza, and also look at some new waiver wire names popping up.
It was a dark and stormy night for some hosts on the fabled Nasty Cast, but they managed to brave even the worst of weather to bring you another excellent episode! Van, Nate, and Ron return to discuss some exciting callups including Griffen Canning, Luis Rengifo, and Nate Lowe, and they also go over bullpens, waiver wire adds, and you can learn just a bit about what not to do in a convenience store.
There’s a lot going on in the land of fantasy baseball, and the boys of the Nasty Cast are here to navigate you through choppy waters! Nate, Ron, and Van take a look at a couple of Pirates getting the call with Cole Tucker and Bryan Reynolds making their debuts this season, of course there are also bullpen woes in Texas and Anaheim (Los Angeles of Anaheim). These topics and more are covered in today’s show as well as plenty of waiver wire options!
Another fantastic week means another fantastic guest (Vantastic, perhaps?) as Ariel Cohen of ATC fame joins the boys on the show! Nate, Ron, Van, and Ariel discuss the ATC Projection System and learn how it works and apply it some players worthy of discussion. They also talk bullpens, waiver wire ads, and more!
Another week and another fantastic guest on the famed Nasty Cast as Alex Chamberlain (@DolphHauldhagen) joins Nate, Ron, and Van as the boys talk everything from trades of Tyler Austin to injuries and replacements like Christian Walker (again). Alex also discussions his pitch tracking creation called the Pitch Leaderboard, which you can find at the end of this description. Tune in for all the excitement!
The season is well underway and that means people are getting hurt! That includes Daniel Murphy, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar and much more (Trea Turner… sigh), so the boys of the Nasty Cast are here to talk replacements, waiver wire adds, bullpens, and much more! On today’s show Nate and Van welcome Nasty Cast regular guest Tim McLeod of Prospects 361 to talk the game they love (and also talk about Ian Kennedy as a potential closer, which he then promptly blows a save an hour later. Oh and also Chris Sale’s velocity is REALLY bad. So this one just had bad timing).
It’s the Nasty Cast! It’s opening day! It’s baseball! As excited as Nate and Ron are for meaningful games to be played they knew it was their civic duty to stop staring at the television and instead gaze deep into one another’s eyes and talk some baseball. The duo goes over Souza’s injury, callups, rotations, bullpens, and much more!
Pitchers who only throw 50 innings! That’s what the topic of the day is as we bring Alex Fast of Pitcher List onto the show. He joins Nate, Ron, and Van as they talk the best relief pitcher values, who to avoid, and also how to treat the position when drafting!
Lovable friend of the podcast Sammy Reid returns on this very special episode to discuss his favorite pitchers outside of the top 30! Nate, Ron, and Van are along for the ride and they do some deep dives on players like Robbie Ray, Luis Castillo, Shane Bieber, Alex Reyes, Matthew Boyd, and many more.
The boys of Nasty welcome Nick Pollack of Pitcher List onto the show as they talk the top 30 pitchers in this year’s draft! Nate, Ron, and Van all get into who they like, who they hate, and everyone in between!
