BP Podcast

Episode 7: Speaking Of Length . . .

by Kevin Goldstein

So much to enjoy here, from us wrongly predicting that the episode would be well under two hours, to a great conversation with Jerry Crasnick of ESPN about the dynamic of the trade deadline in the modern information age.  Plus, Edwin Jackson's no-no, the Top 11 prospects still in the minors, Jason's frightening obsession with the Dallas Cowboys, some impromptu talk about the shakeup in Arizona and some babbling about the modern horror film.  As always, we hope you like listening as much as we like doing it.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Up And In Episode 7: "Speaking Of Length . . . "
