The Can of Corn – Show 3

By Michael Stephens

MLB: San Francisco vs. Philadelphia April 28

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens! Everyone has to get their own wings at some point, right? With Nate away for the week, it’s time for Michael’s first monologue of the year – but it just so happens that it’s a fantasy lecture packed with information you could use on “test day”! Too bad he couldn’t negotiate a Ryan Howard-like $125 million raise for the extra work, but what can ya do? With more rookie news than you could shake a 40-ounce Alfonso Soriano bat at, coupled with injury updates, hot/cold hitters and pitchers and all of your other favorite segments, Season 3’s third episode is packed to the gills with pertinent fantasy info that couldn’t wait until next week! Want to know which hot starters you should stick with and which of the Slowskies you should wait to turn it around? If you answered yes, then look no further – grab your glove and head for the outfield, because here comes The Can of Corn!
