BP Podcast Episode 3: It's Too Much Me

by Kevin Goldstein

We made a huge mistake this week. We realize the podcast was a bit long for some, but we liked the roughly 90 minute length, and so far, so have our listeners. Then we decided to have a special guest for this episode to talk about the draft. That guest? An agent. What do agents do for a living? Talk. Thus, we almost hit two hours, but it's a good two hours, and the table of contents let's you get to what you want to hear. Included is our rant on the reaction to Ken Griffey's retirement, our picks for current third place teams to make the playoffs, Josh Kusnick with the complete story on a pair of over-slot negotiations, including a great Jim Bowden tidbit, a debate over Nirvana's legacy and way more. Plus a challenge to our listeners to explain the Padres!

Note: As always, we do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and discussion of adult situations. Don't say we didn't warn you.
