Fantasy Focus Returns

Fantasy Focus comes back on-air on Monday, Feb. 4th, on XM Channel 175. We'll be back for our fourth season, at the same time slot - Mon-Fri, Noon-1:00 ET.

What I'd like to know from you is what sort of content and/or guests that you'd like to hear from that we don't already have on the show. We have no power to change the time slot or the repeat schedule, but if there's any way we can make the listening experience better, we'd like to hear it.


I'll be the first to throw this out there, and though I already know the answer, is their even a remote possibility that the show can be streamed over the web?

Almost certainly not live, although there might be a chance for a few to be saved as podcasts.

Just finished Fantasyland and would like more interviews during the season with the Tout Wars participants. Otherwise, more of the same. Great shows the past 3 years!

Probably more interviews with my favorite staff writer, Kenn Ruby.

Seriously though, it always amazes me that fantasy writers don't do more separation of AL and NL stuff. Rotowire does it well, but a lot of others just assume we're all in 12-team mixed leagues. I think if there were one whole show focusing on just ALers and one show focusing on just NL, it might be more interesting to those people in deeper leagues.

Yeah I hear that Dave Regan has quite a face/voice for radio...

FF does a pretty good job (at least last year) in dealing in AL/NL only analysis. Plus, the columns that Jeff and Jan Levine pen for the Weekly Waiver Wire focus separately on AL and NL only leagues. Probably the most useful pieces around.

Hey Jeff - terrific show. My only suggestion is to continue having on as many guests as you can providing some insight into all the different draft strategies in the various formats, epsecially early in the season, and as the MLB season progresses de-emphsize the draft segments for more "sleeper and waiver wire heists" segments. Kind of like the article Dave just posted on H2H draft strategy.

Love that stuff and love the show. Can't wait for Feb 4th !!

Jeff - Can't wait man. I have been listening since the earliest days! I would say continue with the weekly regular guests and also maybe add a few more. That said, I think the quickness and sheer volume of calls allows for many folks to get involved and hopefully someone else may touch on a subject that concerns others. Can't wait for '08

What is the Repeat schedule for the show?

jeff, i love the show too. two suggestions:

1. i can't listen to the show at work, so i record it and listen later; is there any way to answer more email questions?

2. you always have great guests; i'd be interested to hear them answer some questions from callers too to give another perspective.
