FDH Lounge Show #111: July 21, 2010

By Rick Morris

The long national nightmare of the LeBron story is behind us (however momentarily) as THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on proves yet again the mantra that “nothing is off-topic.”

We open as usual with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge before we bring in a representative of a wonderful charity. Patches of Light provides vital assistance of many, many different kinds to families with critically ill children. CEO Mindy Atwood represented this organization at the recent Major League Baseball All-Star Game as part of baseball’s salute to charitable efforts. She’ll join us to discuss everything that this extraordinary foundation is doing to help those who need it most.

At the top of Hour Two, an author with a very useful book makes his first trip to The FDH Lounge. Scott Singer, whose tome How to Hit a Curveball: Confront and Overcome the Unexpected in Business has met with numerous critical raves, comes in to talk about successfully navigating challenges in business – and life. Then, a week before his former Reds teammate Sean Casey comes into The FDH Lounge, we welcome a member of one of baseball’s most storied families. ESPN baseball analyst Aaron Boone had a lengthy career in the majors and made it through heart surgery rehabilitation in the last year. He’ll be on to talk about his saga and his analysis as the baseball season chugs into the second half.

We start Hour Three with a return guest who we really enjoyed having on previously. Senior Writer Jonathan Mayo authored the book Facing Clemens: Hitters on Hitting Against Baseball’s Most Intimidating Pitcher (with a foreword from ol’ Rog himself!) and maintains the B3: Big, Bald and Beautiful blog for MLB that is one of the most indispensable resources on baseball prospects that can be found anywhere. Post-Strasburg, what are the prospect developments that you need to know as a baseball fan? He will tell us that and much more. Then, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER examines the Overvalued and Undervalued Football Players of 2010, as well as the players with the biggest variance of opinion among prominent magazines and websites this year. We are continuing to lead up to the July 31 release of FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2010, a joint effort of your favorite 21st Century Media Alliance entities – with the fantasy content powered by your pals at, of course!

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. Also, you can now catch THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on
