August 15, 2014: Episode 40 – The One Where Matt Returns
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’s triumphant return and recent hot stretch, Dylan having his own trouble figuring out the tentative pitching schedule, David Peralta, baseball players that went to Dartmouth, Matt’s vacation anecdotes, and a crazy story involving Jeff Locke.
