The Prospects 365 Fantasy Baseball Podcast covers every facet of fantasy baseball, everyday of the year. Hosts Ray Butler and Mike Kurland discuss topics that include active players, prospects, redraft leagues, dynasty leagues and advanced analytics.
Prospect analyst and pitmaster Ian Smith joins host Ray Butler to discuss transitioning to MLB Draft coverage during the delayed season, the Marlins' draft strategy, what to make of the rumors Emerson Hancock may drop and Ian's access to minor league complexes later this summer. Then, Ian dives into his every day routine at Crydermans Barbecue, his technique while smoking ribs, his favorite woods to cook with and his content leading up to June's MLB Draft.
MLB Draft Analyst Mason McRae joins host Ray Butler to discuss the methodology behind The War Room, a Duel of the Fates between Emerson Hancock and Asa Lacy, Zac Veen's destination and signability, Zach DeLoach's ascension, Garrett Mitchell's descent, projecting the many top-tier catching prospects, a Jared Jones price check, some hypothetical, surprise fallers and much more!
Host Ray Butler (@Prospects365) makes a cringeworthy comparison between the P365 FBP and The Lion King, discusses four prospects who have improved their stock since the beginning of Spring Training, and outlines the many factors worth considering as Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball continue their ongoing negotiations.
If you enjoy following meteoric risers, you're probably already aware of Chris (@baseballpods on Twitter, baseball-pods.com for content). He joins Ray for Episode 10 of the P365 FBP; the pair discusses the Baseball Pods fantasy baseball podcast bracketology tournament, a handful of prospects with notable disparities between Chris' 2020 prospect list and Ray's 2020 prospect list, and Chris' long-term plans and goals for his Twitter account and newly-launched website.
Unscripted and flying solo, host Ray Butler discusses the awesome contributors to The Athletic Fantasy Baseball Podcast, industry stalwart and P365 FBP co-host Mike Kurland, the growing fame of @baseballpods, the elite P365 writing staff and Prospects 365's many followers, readers and listeners.
Host Ray Butler (@Prospects365 on Twitter) and guest Shelly Verougstraete (@ShellyV_643 on Twitter and writer at Prospects 365, RotoGraphs and Pitcher List) discuss the daily gallivanting of Orsillo and Soto, the prospects who might be most affected if the 2020 MiLB season is completely cancelled, and how they're staying sharp during the shutdown and baseball delay.
Ray and guest Matt Williams (host of the Turn Two Podcast) discuss Matt's extremely-popular #2020PlayerBreakdowns series, their shared love of a pitcher with a current redraft ADP outside of the top-400 (the love 'triangle' quickly turns into a love 'rectangle' after Ray and Matt discover another shared love---this time of a pitcher with a current ADP outside of the top-500!), and the upcoming second round of @baseballpods' Fantasy Baseball Podcast Bracketology tournament.
Prospects Live's Ralph Lifshitz is the first guest in P365 FBP history! He and Ray discuss their current evaluations of Pedro Leon and Oscar Colas, big, individual misses in prospect evaluations, and the correlation between evaluating prospects and success in redraft leagues. Some ramblings on George Kirby and Rockies prospects also found within!
Ray discusses a few notable prospects from his crystal ball projected 2021 top-100 list. He also dives into his favorite dynasty format, stats worth monitoring when evaluating prospects and the state of the Pirates' farm system.
Ray and Mike discuss a recently published article on the effects of last season’s juiced ball, a handful of potential risers in the back half of Ray’s top-200 prospect list, and a few high-value MLB infielders for the upcoming season.
Ray and Mike focus on five interesting prospects - some high floor, some high ceiling - who narrowly missed Ray's upcoming 2020 top-200 prospect list. While doing so, they also discuss the impending Mookie Betts trade and the dangerous practice of comparing prospects to superstars.
