June 20, 2014: Episode 24 – The One Where Matt Picks The Marlins
Field of Streams is a twice-weekly fantasy baseball podcast with a focus on daily pitching matchups, hosted by Dylan Higgins and Matthew Dewoskin. Both hosts attempt to make under-the-radar picks every day, for a season-long contest to see who can suggest the best streaming options and show that they can predict the future better than the other.
Topics in this episode include Matt going all in on the Marlins vs. the Mets, comparing the very boring Henderson Alvarez and Charlie Morton, comparing the very alluring Vance Worley and Joe Blanton, the best hypothetical situations to spot-start Jason Vargas, Brad “The $1 Arm” Mills, and the Nick Punto trade.
