Episode 9.0: A Delicious Casserole Of Fun

by Kevin Goldstein

We come back from a short delay due to Jason's move with nearly 140 minutes of . . . well, something.  Steven Goldman tells a series of highly entertaining Yankee stories as we try to figure out George Steinbrenner's legacy, Jason and I catch up on some recent trades, and we switch to low-brow during Pop Culture Moment with a discussion of television and video games.  Plus, Not Jim Tracy (of course), recipe corner and a request for you to tell us what to cook this week.

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