The Can of Corn – Show 17

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Teams trading their aces and very large men losing their minds? All sorts of things going on in the world of baseball this week (we even stick in a reference to Topps’ newest baseball card monopoly) for the hosts to talk about, and when you combine all that stuff with our usual slew of injury updates, Cafe Talk, e-mails and friendly competitions, you get another week of the Can of Corn packed to the gills with information for your coming fantasy baseball week! We have surrendered in our begging for help with our own trades, etc (but only for one week, so don’t get too excited) to make plenty of extra room for this week’s prognostication, so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
