August 29, 2014: Episode 44 – The One Where Eno 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 Eno Sarris returning as a pinch-hitter, Yusmeiro Petit Day, differences in velocities between left-handers and right-handers, a closer look at Jacob deGrom’s development, Chris Young’s pitching approach, Dylan making gross generalizations, Toronto’s recent cold streak, and Eno’s recent obsession with pitching grips.
