RotoGraphs Audio: Field of Streams 8/27/2015

Episode 100 – Completely Arbitrary Milestone

The latest episode of “Field of Streams” is live!

In this episode, Dylan Higgins and Brad Johnson discuss celebrating the 100th episode, a particularly strange and shallow DFS slate, Anthony DeSclafani’s terrible pitching splits at home, Dylan finally digging too deep on a pick, considering any warm bodies in the Angels lineup to stack against Randy Wolf and the Tigers, Edwin Encarnacion being truly “en fuego,” trying to compare Rubby De La Rosa to Justin Verlander, making an obligatory obligatory Jhonny Peralta mention, Greg Holland and strange closer mentalities, and the empty apartment that is the new iTunes page.

Contest pick for Thursday, August 27: Joe Ross vs. SD (Dylan and Matt).
