“All Things Fantasy” (4-8-13)

In this Monday April 8th, 2013 edition of “All Things Fantasy” I interview Jeff Erickson (@Jeff_Erickson), whos the senior editor of rotowire.com, to talk all things fantasy baseball. Then I list some pickups and go over some 2 start pitchers for next week. Also, I break down how to punt a category in baseball and why it should be stolen bases and not saves. Here are my notes from the show.
