BARRIE, ON, CANADA, January 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Dear Mr. Fantasy baseball podcast will be returning with a fresh slate of episodes beginning on February 4th, 2013. The show, which features a full rundown of fantasy baseball players, statistics, news, analysis, tips and insight will return to its weekly schedule after a hiatus during the baseball offseason.
With fantasy sports growing in popularity annually, there is an increasing need for more information on the topic. Fantasy sports now account for approximately $4 billion in annual economic impact across the sports industry.
The Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast began in January 2012 with Chris McBrien hosting the show. A permanent co-host was introduced in May 2012 with the addition of the 'Fantasy Doctor', an anonymous baseball injury expert. A partnership with the 'Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks' website was announced in the fall of 2012 to further increase the scope of the weekly program. Just recently, a partnership with Fantasy Judgment was announced which adds a dispute resolution segment to the format.
"It has been a very busy offseason, both in baseball and here at the show", states Chris McBrien, founder and co-host of the Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast. "We have established several strategic partnerships within the fantasy community and we are prepared to offer our listeners a quality show each and every week".
In addition to McBrien and the Fantasy Doctor, the program features a rolling guest format. When the show returns on February 4th, the first guest of the new season will be Eno Sarris, a popular writer for the Fangraphs website. Subsequent guests for 2013 include several very well-known members of the fantasy community such as Tim Heaney (USA Today), Mike Gianella (Roto Think Tank) and renowned baseball author Allen Schatz
"It's going to be an amazing 2013 season on the show", states McBrien. "We are committed to providing our listeners with the very best guests each and every week. We've got some big names lined up and we shouldn't disappoint".
The podcast will feature positional previews for the first eight shows, then revert to its regular segments for baseball's regular season schedule.
