The Can of Corn – Midseason Awards Show

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! It’s time for the Midsummer Classic, and you know what that means, right? Some rest and relaxation, followed by some serious investigation into your (fantasy and reality) team for the remainder of the season. Do you have what it takes to contend? Should you wait until next year? Who should you buy, and who should you sell? Answers to the fantasy end of all of those questions are inside of this special Midseason Awards episode of the Can of Corn. This show is packed with almost 30 minutes of our first-half fantasy All Stars, as well as our biggest surprises/disappointments. Also, we have a list of lists covering guys you should be keeping an eye on for the second half of the season and our much-awaited, up-to-date standings for all Hot Corner and Battle of the Wits topics. We have a lot to cover, so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
