The Can of Corn – Show 24

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Only one more week left til the season comes to a close, and that means this is the last real episode of the Can of Corn (save your tears for show 25 though, please)! This is the final week for lineup changes, and chances are you are either in the stretch run for your roto league, in the final week of your title quest in H2H or you have thrown in the towel and hopped on the football bandwagon (which is fine with us, we have a football show you can check out too!). We have news on all things baseball this week, from pertinent injury news, to top rookie performers, to Cafe Talk, so tune in for more of our usual weekly content, as well as a new award at the end of the show – it’s time to grab your glove and head for the outfield, because here comes The Can of Corn!
