FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Second Half Predictions + Waiver Pickups
Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros 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.
The All-Star break gave all fantasy owners a breather, but baseball is back and with the second half underway, Mike Podhorzer of Rotographs joined us to give predictions to look forward to heading into the stretch run starting with a turnaround for Blake Snell (2:30). Mike Soroka is highly unlikely to keep up his numbers (14:52) and Justin Smoak is being hugely undervalued and should be owned immediately (20:23). The waiver wire shouldn’t be ignored either with pitchers like Matt Strahm (31:45) and Tyler Mahle (34:54) still readily available. If you’re looking for power, there are a pair of youngsters who can be had for free in Bobby Bradley (38:14) and Nate Lowe (39:35). We close out the show with our listener mailbag and dream of what our all-time starting lineup would be for an All-Star game (46:14).
