We got a bit of a throwback episode for you baseball history buffs, Yahoo’s Andy Behrens joins Scott Pianowski to talk about their draft with our friends over at Rotoworld for ‘The Greatest League.’

If you haven’t heard about the concept already, the basic idea is that you can draft the best individual seasons of any baseball player since 1980. Any player, any season, but a player can only be drafted once. Once rosters are set, Rotoworld plans on simulating an entire season on WhatIfSports. (02:12)

Scott and Andy break down their first round picks, 1994 Frank Thomas and Dwight Gooden from 1985 (03:37), why the shortened seasons of yesteryear provided some of the best seasons in history, and if we can look forward to big stat lines during a potential 80-game season (16:18)

And we wrap up the show with a friendly snake draft of our favorite, let’s say, less famous siblings of some of the best athletes in history. Ozzie Canseco, this is your time to shine. (45:53)
