August 8, 2014: Episode 38 – The One Without Matt
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 Brian filling in for Matt while he is on vacation, trying to explain the Rockies’ extreme home and road splits, the ultimate “roll the dice” pitcher, strategies for daily fantasy formats, and Adam Dunn’s pitching performance.
