BP Podcast Episode 4: 2010 Draft Special With Special Guest Keith Law
Last week, we had an excuse for nearing the two hour mark, as our special guest was an agent, and agents, by default, talk a lot. This week? We have nobody to blame but ourselves, and the 2010 MLB draft. That said, if Stephen Strasburg's debut didn't happen this week, we would have it a more reasonable length. Because it was draft week, we are joined by special guest Keith Law of ESPN for a long conversation about, well, pretty much everything draft-related before moving onto our Pop Culture Moment and why Catcher In The Rye isn't much of a classic.
In additional good news, we are now available on ITunes, and the link is below to subscribe on whatever ITunes compatible device you might own.
Note: As always, we do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
