Fantasy 411 Q&A: March 6, 2009 (News Galore)
Editor’s Note: We just shot a new show and Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus joined us. Check out his latest column of Under the Knife on A-Rod.
Could there have been any more news yesterday? Between A-Rod, Manny and even a little NFL shocker with TO it was a wild day. When we shot the show yesterday it was literally 10 minutes after the news had broke on A-Rod’s potential hip surgery. We decided to go on knowing number one that this was just the beginning and number two stories weren’t even posted on the web yet, not even ESPN.com who broke it electronically before editorially. Now that we have some more news since the Yankees have spoke and the experts have weighed in from the medical field Cory and I will jump in the studio this afternoon and shoot a new show just on A-Rod. Look for it around 3pmish ET.
In other news…….
Anyone still looking for a league to join that is recognized by the 411 just head on over to Tony in Hitchin and Jay at the mafia site. Below is the info from Jay.
We are still filling Keeper Leagues for 2009 as Mr. Siano has indicated and they are spawned of the vanilla Fantasy 411 Leagues often referenced on the show. Email Tony and I and we’ll slot you in.
Most Leagues have been going 3 years strong, so you can count on active participation and a high level of competition.

some sad news out of Connecticut. The Connecticut School of Broadcasting has shut down due to financial issues. I was a CSB grad in 1997 and I owe much of the success I have today to the place. It gave me a chance to hone my producer skills and meet the people that eventually brought me over to MLB.com. I’ll be celebrating my 9 yr anniversary at MLB.com this June 5th and it all started at CSB.
FEATURED QUESTION OF THE DAY
How are things going to iron out in the Minnesota OF/DH with Span, Young, Cuddyer, Gomez and Kubel?
I agree with Siano on this one… Gardy is very resourceful about getting all of his bats into the lineup. Kubel does not hit lefties particularly well, so he’ll share DH AB’s
with Young and Cuddyer, and of course Gomez could stink his way out of
the lineup at any point and leave CF to Span. Plus Span overachieved
last year compared to his minor league stats, and is also a lefty, so
he could lose AB’s to Young or Cuddyer. Or someone could get traded or
hurt. These things have a way of working themselves out, so I expect
plenty of AB’s for everyone.
