The Can of Corn – Show 21

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Man, what is the deal with all of these post-deadline deals? And who the heck is “player to be named later”? With the playoffs (fantasy and reality) quickly approaching, general managers and fantasy owners alike are scrambling to put together the best possible roster for the optimum postseason success, is there a better way to achieve this success than with a healthy dose of Rookie Watch, injury updates and Cafe Talk? There simply isn’t one as far as we’re concerned, so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
