The Can of Corn – Show 23

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens! Well, it’s time for the second solo flight of the year! With a limited “staff” this week, I still wanted to get a show out there for the loyal listeners (who are hopefully in the thick of their playoff races!) so they can have that little bit of extra help with injury news, rookie watch and hot/cold hitters to propel them into the ultimate fantasy glory this season! There isn’t any Cafe Talk this week, but along with all the aforementioned segments, I also made sure to update any/all Hot Corner situations and the Battle of the Wits, so this 11 minutes is jam-packed with pertinent playoff information for you – it’s time to grab your glove and head for the outfield, because here comes The Can of Corn!
