Episode 19: People From Sweden Sound That Way

by Kevin Goldstein

We often say that we hope you enjoy the podcast as much as we do in providing it, and this week we test your limits. We just got away from ourselves and the next thing you know, it's almost three hours long. That said, it's a baseball-heavy episode as we talk about the race for the final playoff spots, pick our 2011 breakout prospects, and then argue with an emotional Jonah Keri (listen for him banging on his desk) about the future of baseball in Tampa and David Price's twitter habits. As if that's not enough, our special guest is Mark Newman, Senior VP of Baseball Operations for the New York Yankees. Mark goes into detail about several Yankee prospects, tells a joke about Boing! And even breaks out a few George Steinbrenner stories in what is a must-listen interview. From there, the wackiness finally begins as Jason and I have a long discussion about the art work of Henry Darger, cook several recipes sent in by listeners, and even find the time to debate Benny Agbayani's hat size.

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