Episode 18: I'm Stopping The Podcast!

by Kevin Goldstein

C. Trent Rosencrans of CBS Sports joins us to discuss the 2010 Cincinnati Reds, Jay Jaffe joins us to talk about the 40th anniversary of Ball Four, and when we are guest-free, we talk about potential managerial changes, prospect disappointments, along with plenty of tangents revolving around El Topo, teenage Rangers shortstops, Conner Crumbliss and the sounds vehicles make. 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.
