Ep 280 | Top 20 Outfielders
We've left the infield and find ourselves sitting in the grass tossing our glove in the air and singing about nothing as the guys of the Nasty Cast talk the top 20 outfielders!

So tune in to find out what Brian, Van, and Ron have to say about Kyle Tucker, Mookie Betts, and more!

The duo talk everyone from Fernando Tatis Jr and Trea Turner up top to (shudder) Gleyber Torres somewhere in the middle to deeper names like Jorge Mateo, Niko Goodrum, and more

Ep 278 | Third Base Positional Review
We're almost home! Well, Ron, Van, and Brian ARE home, but this is an analogy and 'home' is home plate. But you likely knew that if you're listening to this show since we doubt people who know nothing of baseball listen to baseball podcasts, but who knows! Anyway the boys look deep into third base and talk all the hot players at the hot corner (and Adalberto Mondesi), giving you their favorite buys, sells, and everything in between. Plus a new game!Speaking of which, if you're here solely for the third base preview you can skip ahead to 28:50. There's Hall of Fame complaining and other baseball stuff early but we get it if you just want the hard information

Ep 276 | First Base Positional Review
Van, Ron, and Brian leave the disgusting muddled swamp that is fantasy baseball catchers in the dust and shift their focus to the slightly less disgusting muddled swamp that is fantasy baseball first baseman! Long gone are the days of every first baseman being a .300 hitter with 40 HR but that doesn't mean the position is devoid of ANY talent. The boys have some different opinions about who they like at the cold corner, so tune in and find out who they like and why
