This week, we’re talking injuries. Fred Zinkie of MLB.com joins the pod to discuss his Yahoo Friends & Family league roster, which is quite possibly the most shattered fantasy lineup of all-time. It’s legitimately amazing. Freeman? He’s got him. Bumgarner? Yeah. Price? Of course. Haniger, Keuchel and Sanchez? Sure. Naturally, Fred drafted Starling Marte, too.

Yet somehow, until very recently, Fred was clinging to first place in an active league, full of fantasy professionals. We discuss the many pickups he’s nailed this season — Ervin Santana, Alex Wood and others — plus we hit various early-season surprises.

Dalton Del Don is in the mix this week as well, per the usual Thursday protocol. We chat about fantasy pickups, featuring Matt Adams, Tyson, Ross, Joe Ross and more.

Give it a listen. And please rate and review favorably.
