The Can of Corn – Show 20

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! You know the season is getting close to the end when we have logged 20 shows! But, we were still able to cull the fantasy world to produce a constant stream of fantasy baseball information, so you won’t hear any complaints from us! This week we have over 900 career saves on the move, season-ending injuries everywhere and tons of Cafe Talk to go along with our regular segments on hot/cold hitters, Battle of the Wits, the Hot Corner and much more – so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
