Rollins is going to be on at 12:40 ET and 7:40 ET Saturday and 1:40 ET Sunday.

Brad Evans of Yahoo! Sports, who said Davidson was his sleeper and Kansas would win it all, will be on at Noon ET Saturday, and NBA.com's Jon Loomer will be on at 12:20.

Feel free to suggest topics for any of them, particularly for Rollins. Since I have him on my Yahoo Friends and Family team, I'm going to talk to him about what's expected. More steals, particularly of third base and home plate, for example.



Comments....

Nice pull, Liss! Ask him about Hillary and Omnivore's Dilemma too. Listeners seem to love that stuff.

Yes, a "stop the monster" special - brilliant.

Wow. What a good get. Ask him if he has any predictions for the NL East this year. Or maybe the playoffs since he predicted the East last year. I'm sure he'll say "no," but wouldn't it be great if he made another prediction on your show?

On a more serious note, I'd ask him about his approach to basestealing as he moves into his late-20s and beyond. With the exception of a few Dave Roberts types, most players tend to significantly curb their basestealing as they get older, bulk up and become different kinds of players, leabing more toward power than speed. I'd like to hear his philosophy on the issue.

If Rollins goes 30-100-100, that's still a great fantasy season. But he's not going to steal 30-40 bases every year, and when that part of his game goes (whether organically or by conscious choice), that'll be very relevant to fantasy players.

Chris- Your're show on Monday night with Johah Kari and Delton Del Don is top notch. You have a tendency to go off on tangents, but I could listen to you guys talk for hours.

Jonah has incredible insight on such a wide range of topics and Dalton gives great fantasy advice. If nobody has heard the show, you should give it a listen.

Thanks for saying so - I agree - those guys are good guests. And also that we go on some tangents...

We also podcast some of the shows in case you miss them:

I noticed you weren't on last night. Are you going to a different schedule now that we are heading into the regular season?
Posted by skinsnut at 3/26/2008 8:14:00 AM
 
We were - but it was delayed because they screwed up - basically, we taped it Tuesday morning and it got submitted improperly. But we're on the some schedule for now. Hopefully, in June, we'll be on every weekday in our old 2-3 ET slot, but after the merger with XM and Sirius, it's hard to say.

By the time the FCC gets through with this it will probably be June of 2009.
