This is the Monday April 15th, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. Michael Pichan (@fantasynomad) of rotoinfo.com joined me to talk about some recent callups, players struggling, and more. Also, Wayne Bretsky of Bretskyball.com joined me in the last segment of the show to talk about players that recently got injured. I give some players to pickup. Here are my notes from the show and some of the exact questions we talked about during the interview.\
what do we need to know about Oswaldo Arcia? Tony Cingrani?
What do you do with Jason heyward/ matt Kemp? what could you trade them for?
Are you buying or selling Josh Johnson?
what do you do if your a giancarlo stanton oowner?
Deexter Fowler already has 6 HRS..is this the breakout year everyone was hoping for?
is Jarrod Parker droppable/tradealbe
Matt Adams, Evan Gattis should owners look to trade them even if it comes at a litttle bit of an undersell as their PT will be likely limited at various points in the season?
Gio Gonzalez, Craig Kimbrel showed signs of lower avg velo
