August 1, 2014: Episode 36 – The One After The Trade Deadline
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 plenty of discussion following a very busy trade deadline, Vance Worley’s shutout and his new nickname, the return of Andy Marte, players that are now over 50% owned, and John Lackey’s goofy contract.
