The Can of Corn – NL East Preview

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Darren Shimp! We’re back for our second season of the podcast, and figured we’d start BEFORE the 2009 campaign since we aren’t learning on the fly this time around! Spring Training is in the air, and that means it’s high time for some divisional previews! We’ll be breaking down each division in Major League Baseball team-by-team and running our show in conjunction with the “30 Teams in 30 Days” series featured on the Fantasy Baseball Cafe (starting February 22).

In a shameless ploy for inter-site synergy, there will be copious refers from one medium to the other so we can fill your fantasy void with everything you want to know about all 30 MLB teams. So without further ado, let’s get started with the NL East!

Check out the other completed divisional previews:
NL Central
NL West
AL East
AL Central
AL West

The format of these divisional previews doesn’t allow for our usual amount of segments and slapstick pop culture references, but if you find yourself missing “Frozen Ropes”, “Battle of the Wits” and more, never fear because our draft special will be airing within the next two weeks with all the goodies you are used to! And after that, of course, you can look forward to a new an improved version of the Can of Corn every week during the regular season. Buckle up for 30-plus shows, because here we go!
