The Can of Corn – Show 22

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! It smells like October! Well, the October of fantasy baseball season at least! We’ve reached the time of year where lineup decisions are even more gut wrenching and injuries are devastating – there is no time more important than now to keep on top of your roster and player news and to make all the right moves to advance to the second week of the playoffs, so we hope you choose to turn to our Rookie Watch, injury updates, Cafe Talk and e-mail analysis for the advice you need to inch closer to your league’s championship! It’s time to grab your glove and head for the outfield, because here comes The Can of Corn!
