BP Podcast

Episode 77: I Don't Drink Pie

by Kevin Goldstein

It's the final podcast of the year, and with the free agent frenzy slowing down, Yu Darvish fills the void, so we talk about Monday night's wackiness, what the Darvish signing means to the Rangers, and then we get intellectual with our special guest is Mike Plugh. An American Professor in Japan who has consulted with major league teams, Mike discusses the transition for Darvish on a cultural level, and breaks out a few big words. That's it's all the goofy stuff you expect, and happy holidays everyone. As always, we hope you enjoy.

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