Beckett Live Presents: The Sporting News Ryan Fagan


The Sporting News Ryan Fagan joined us on Beckett Live Presents last night for a great conversation about the 2020 MLB season, Hall of Fame voting, and his pack of the day threads on Twitter.

Ryan has been a BBWAA member for 14 years and has his finger on the pulse of the MLB. Ryan shared his takes on weird rules changes and who he thought might win it all this season. He also shed some light on Hall of Fame voting, a matter that he does not take lightly.  From who’s in the Hall to who should be, Ryan left it all out on the table. He discussed Fred McGriff, Don Mattingly, the Steroid Era guys, and Pete Rose among others.

As far as the hobby is concerned, we had a great time breaking down his Pack of the Day Tweets. If you aren’t familiar with them, they are a great source of hobby nostalgia. The stories shared in those threads are sometimes heartwarming, sometimes not, but always fun.  Ryan also shared his thoughts on the modern market and the crazy prices cards are selling for.

The BLP Player of the Episode is the Crime Dog, Fred McGriff.
