BP Podcast

Episode 42: You Eat It, And You Smile

by Kevin Goldstein

Yup, time for another podcast. We talk about Gerrit Cole, Neftali Feliz as a starter and hear from an exotic listener in the mailbag and then we talk about the lack of defensive skills in general and get some in-depth reports on players Jason has seen in Arizona. Then Kendall Rogers from Perfect Game joins us to talk about the year in college baseball so far, and why the NCAA is still evil. Following that, it's everyone's favorite goofy stuff, including tales from a riot and bacon sundaes. Most importantly, we talk about our predict the season contest, and how you can enter by donating to Doctors Without Borders, I'll have a separate post about it later in the day, but for now, all the details are here.

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