Episode 242: ADP Me Softly

September 18th, 2020

With the season drawing to a close, is it too soon to look at 2021? Of course not. Mike, Jon, and Samuel spend some time talking through how they think the 2020 bubble plan for the playoffs will go(spoiler alert not great). They then transition to discussing pop up cases both good and bad in the shortened season, pondering how these season will change draft rankings for next season. It’s a great discussion of draft value, understanding short sample sizes, and overall player evaluation. This is a big ‘un, so strap in for a lot of baseball nerdery.

Episode 241: Insert Catchy Title Here

September 11th, 2020

Mike, Jon, and Samuel return for a more abstract episode of the podcast this week. Jon has some interesting fantasy performers that were all either super sleepers or undrafted that Mike and Samuel try to guess. One does better than the other, you can probably figure out which is which there. Then the lads take a couple listener questions involving Gavin Lux, Bobby Dalbec, and Mr. Show. It’s a whimsical if disorganized episode.

Episode 240: No Business Like Trade Deadline Business

September 4th, 2020

The gang’s all here! Mike, Jon, and Samuel reconvene for a big episode on the 2020 trade deadline. They dive into a fair amount of discussion on the lesser known deals with fantasy implications.

August 7th, 2020

The gang’s back together! Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back this week with a lot of things to talk about.

Episode 233: Designating Hitters

July 3rd, 2020

Baseball was not back, but now it is again. It might not be back by the time you hear this, because pandemics don’t care about baseball. However, we know what baseball will look like this year if/when it comes back. The big thing that involves is instituting the universal designated hitter for 2020 and 2021. Mike, Jon, and Samuel took some time to break down what that might mean for each NL team, and who might be worth targeting when the season resumes.

Episode 232: Baseball Is Back Question Mark

June 19th, 2020

Baseball is….back? The contentious negotiations between the owners and players continue, but on Wednesday at recording time it looked like the two parties were close to an agreement to return to the field. Mike, Jon, and Samuel break down what this looks like as they record, and vent about the entire process. It’s about baseball, but it does take some turns because would it be a FFF podcast if it didn’t?

Episode 231: On (Baseball) Writing

June 5th, 2020

This week on Flags Fly Forever, it’s the episode that inevitably occurs when three writers podcast regularly. That’s right, it’s a podcast all about writing. Mike, Jon, and Samuel spend time talking about how they became writers, how they found their way to BP, and what advice they might have for anyone that potentially wants to pursue writing as a creative endeavor. Also Samuel tries out a new microphone and it goes just OK, he’s sorry about that in advance.

Episode 230: FFF Goes To The Movies

May 22nd, 2020

Over at the BP website, there’s a lot of movie based content already in existence and with more coming. Mike, Jon, and Samuel decided it’d be fun to do a show all about baseball movies. Well, Samuel did and the hosts didn’t complain so it worked out just fine. They put movies into three categories, not unlike fantasy baseball players. See the tie in? Anyway it’s a fun show with a lot of opinions including one classic baseball movie getting savaged in the “Movie to Avoid” tier. Enjoy!
