I'm addicted. I think Cory Schwartz and Mike Siano are excellent hosts; they balance humor and fantasy content/advice really well. I haven't called in yet though, as I'm living/working overseas (although I suppose I could anyway). Who else on the cafe is a regular 411 listener? Thoughts on the show?
I'm actually in the Fantasy 411 Hall of Fame. Last year and the year before I kept track of Pitch and Ditch stats for them, and would turn them into them weekly. I haven't been able to do that this year due to work, school, and a new born kid. Cory is one of the best fantasy experts I have been able to find thus far. Now that school's over, I'm hoping to start listening again.
Check out fantasybaseballmafia.com. It's the same people that run mlbradiofans.com. They have numerous keeper leagues started up, and will probably add several more next year. All the leagues are very competitive and most of the managers are listeners of Fantasy 411. I am owning Keeper #1, and sitting 3rd in the HOF League (has Fred from Cali, Going Postal, Jeanne from Hollywood, and 8 other active listeners).
I hated it in spring training b/c of too many inside references to their leagues and their jokes are very hit or miss, but since the season has started I listen to the podcast pretty much every day and really get a lot out of it. I take some of their advice with a grain of salt (like Havok said, Mike admitted he's never won a fantasy championship) but overall it's a solid show. Has it's flaws, but I wouldn't pick any other podcast over it. They have good insight into overall strategy/philosophy at times that's really served me well.

Yeah, Mike isn't the brightest crayon in the box when it comes to fantasy, but I just like listening to the fantasy talk.
