Can Manny Machado Return Value Without Stealing a Base?
Garion Thorne is joined on "The Rotation: Analytics Overload" by Fred Zinkie, MLB.com's lead fantasy baseball writer and three-time Tout Wars Mixed League Champion, to break down some of the more interesting statistical anomalies from the season's first half.
Last year, Manny Machado was one of just two players to hit 30+ home runs and steal 20+ bases. This season? He hasn't even attempted to swipe a base in nearly two months. Can the Oriole still be a Top 10 talent without that aspect of his game? Wilson Ramos is currently the most valuable catcher in standard formats, but will his second half be destroyed by regression? Also, Todd Frazier is almost pacing the league in home runs, but is hitting into more soft contact than ever before - is that a trend or bad luck?
"The Rotation" is a fantasy sports show hosted by Garion Thorne that airs daily on the FNTSY Sports Network at 3pm and 6:30pm EST. The program not only has your season-long fantasy baseball, football, and basketball needs covered from a deep analytical prospective, but also delves into Pop Culture and Matthew Berry's Fantasy Movie League. Call your cable service provider for information on how you can watch the FNTSY Sports Network or check us out on Xbox, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.
