Episode 45: Hawks Can Be Jerks, Man

by Kevin Goldstein

Do we have plenty of baseball talk? Sure we do. We got prospects, we got Josh Hamilton's injury, we got Sam Fuld's amazing week. Do we have Mike Curto, the finest play-by-play voice in the minors talking about the business? Sure we do, he even provides musical suggestions. Is that what you are waiting for? No, no it is not. We found the hawk trap guy, and he's here for your listening pleasure. You're welcome.

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