FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Sophomore Expectations

Feb 8, 2018

Can Cody Bellinger avoid a sophomore slump?

Welcome to another episode of the FantaysPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

We’re back and joining us this episode is Jim Sannes of numberFire.com to chat about the sophomore class in 2018. People often think of the sophomore slump as a reason to avoid certain players, but this class could be special and different. Before we get into those players, we’re quickly discussing the Seung-Hwan Oh signing and the busy bullpen in Texas (1:40). If you want to hear about the youngsters, we’ve got you covered as we chat about Aaron Judge (8:57), Matt Olson (12:54), Rhys Hoskins (12:54), Cody Bellinger (15:33), Yoan Moncada (22:43), and a handful of pitchers (34:01).
