Beating The Book with Gill Alexander

Last week was the appetizer; this week, the entree.  Fantasy baseball geeks (and baseball bettors), it's time.  No one has written more extensively on starting pitching throughout MLB heading into your 2016 fantasy draft or auction than FanGraphs writer and podcast host, Paul Sporer (RotoWire, MLB Network).  He sits down and chats with Host Gill Alexander about the most overvalued and undervalued starters in the majors, headed into Opening Day 2016. It's information that directly applies to fantasy, but converts beautifully to betting value, as well.  That, fantasy strategy, and the best/worst rotations in baseball, as well, on Wednesday's Beating The Book (March 30, 2016).
