Episode 89: Marriage Counseling

by Kevin Goldstein

We're back with another big show. After reading your emails (nice bounce back week from the listeners) we get into lots of baseball talk as I took in my first minor league game of the year and Miguel Sano did not disappoint. Then it's onto the big leagues as Jason breaks down the first starts of 2012 by Yu Darvish and Neftali Feliz of the Rangers, and we talk about how Yoenis Cespedes has become much-watch television. With some hot minor league starts, the questions about when a player will reach the big leagues have arrived, and I answer every one of them before Jason goes on a rant about how we evaluate defense. Our special guest is ESPN Baseball Tonight host Steve Berthiaume, who for some reason listens to our stupid show, and then it's the return of Not Jim Tracy and all the goofy stuff. 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.
