We’ve got an All-Star edition of the StewPod for you this week, as we’re joined by MLB legend Dave Winfield and Yahoo Sports fantasy expert Scott Pianowski. If you’re looking for a podcast that will both help yearn for a trip to San Diego for the MLB All-Star game and help fix your fantasy baseball team, this is it.
Winfield, along fellow San Diego Padres great Trevor Hoffman, was named as an official spokesperson and ambassador for the 2016 All-Star game. What’s that mean exactly? Well, the Hall of Famer explains that and a lot more in the podcast. It’s clear he has a soft spot for San Diego, where he played from 1973-1980. And where he wore some fantastic uniforms. (Yes, we talked about those too).
Meanwhile, Pianowski stops by to offer his early season insights on which players are worth buying low, selling high and watching for on the waiver wire. Especially if your fantasy team is a mess like a certain StewPod co-host.
