FDH Lounge Show #68: August 5, 2009

By Rick Morris

The 68th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on SportsTalkNetwork.com (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT) brings you more of the variety that only we can deliver.

Even before The Opening Statements of The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we welcome in the author of a provocative new novel. Kathryn Fraser penned the tome A Journey, A Reckoning and A Miracle, which imagines an alternate-reality post-presidency in which George W. Bush changes his mind about the correctness of the Iraq War and thus embarks on a new path. She moves very familiar figures about on the canvass in ways that we are not used to seeing them and intermingles some interesting characters that she creates.

After we speak with her, we begin an extended FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER, first focusing on our brand-new free download, FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2009 and all of the contents within. Such as? Well, only our FDH Draft Board, Top 60 Overall, Senior Editor Jason Jones’ position-by-position player rankings and notes, 2009 FDH Mock Draft & Analysis, 2009 Fantasy Overview, Don’t Be That Guy, Injury Analysis, Projected Breakthroughs, Rookie Player Rankings, Overvalued & Undervalued Players, Suggested League Guidelines and bonus non-fantasy coverage. Is that enough for you? That’s obviously a rhetorical question!

From there, in the second hour, we convene the First Annual FDH Fantasy Sports Summit with some of the biggest names in the game joining us:

^ Cory J. Bonini, Managing Editor of KFFL.com
^ Dave Richard, Fantasy Football Writer at CBSSports.com
^ Mike Harmon, Fantasy Guru at FoxSports.com
^ Kelly Perdew, CEO of Rotohog

NOTE: More names may be joining us and we will work to keep this rundown updated prior to the show to reflect that. We’ll be talking state of the industry, the 2009 football season and anything else that is relevant. It will be a lot of fun and very informative to have this meeting of the minds.

In Hour Three, we bring back the very well-connected sports columnist Neil Best of Newsday. If there’s a sports or sports media story you care about, he is covering it, so we are guaranteed to have a great segment.

We close with a new guest on the program and somebody who we feel will fit in very well with us. Jonathan Mayo, the minor league columnist for MLB.com, will be coming on to help us take a look at the prospects involved in the baseball deadline deals.

It’s going to be a great program and we hope you can be a part of our audience. As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us now on iTunes!
