A very "wonkish" episode focusing on dynasty fantasy baseball rules.
In this episode we talk about how this episode is completely backwards (warning: very wonkish episode), Swag’s need for coffee, GK thinks Tim is a genius, the wetness of Tim and J-Lo’s teams, building for the future, teams windows, playing to win, psychological warfare, clarification of Swag’s interest in the league this year, a career year in 7 games for Jed, J-Lo missed a trade, GK’s hatred of poor Manuel, Swag goes all in….wait…no he doesn’t, J-Lo Sith, unwritten rules (again!…Yes, but it leads to something interesting….wait for it…wait for it…), the extended discussion about state control and the Competitive Spirit Clause (or alternatively, GK suddenly falls in love with the thoughts of Friedrich Hayek), Tim complains about the commissioner’s job, and oh yeah, we run through the scores this week.
