Episode 35: I Will Take Your Liver Out
Not much going on? Sure, so let's have a bit of Front Office 101 this week. After plenty of deep, metaphysical emails, we try (and fail) to understand what the Angels did this week, while also talking about what Mike Napoli means to the Rangers, and plenty of prospect talk with the Cardinals and White Sox Top 11 lists. The highlight comes with our special guest, John Coppolella, the Director of Baseball Administration with the Atlanta Braves. If you've ever had any questions about the arbitration process, you won't after this interview, as we go through the entire process with a fictional player named Johnny Shortstop. It's truly fascinating stuff and a rare glimpse at how the sausage is made. From there, we talk about Saturday's big SABR Day event in NYC, talk about refrigerators for way too long, and also supply details on how to drink with Jason and I on Saturday night. As always, we hope you enjoy.
Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
