Episode 30: Two Diamond-Encrusted Snow Plows
When planning the podcast, we did have some worries about having enough to talk about during the off-season. Luckily, we've had plenty of drama, and last week was defined by the big Zack Greinke trade. So after breaking down the trade on a baseball level, we go to the source as we are joined by Jim Breen of Bernie's Crew, who broke the story of the Greike trade, about his wild weekend. Later, we are joined by all-around Dominican media guy Rafael Bello, who helps us respond to a listener email about traveling to the Dominican to watch baseball, and of course, we also talk about the mambo. From there, more goofy stuff with concept albums about yetis, holiday plans and a special announcement at the end.
Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
