Episode 53: Good Luck In Your World Of Dairy

by Kevin Goldstein

We talk to Keith Law about the draft, we solve the beer temperature debate with a science guy, we talk about Bryce Harper and pitching prospects, and we do it all in under three hours. We hope you enjoy, and we hope you have free time.

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

Just found the podcast homepage on my iPhone... but it hasn't uploaded yet. Does iTunes usually lag behind by a day or two?

iTunes usually lags by an hour or two.

Actually, it's up now.

KG, I usually download the podcast from right here, instead of going into iTunes. (Long story). After your comments on the weird iTunes ranking system last week, I got to thinking. Would it help the ranking on iTunes if I went there to download it instead? Obviously I can't affect the ranking all by myself, but I can't be the only one downloading directly from BP.com . . . can I?

I listen on the Web, then download it on my home iTunes and also grab it on my iPhone.

Maybe the Brewers drafted young Boras to curry favour from his Papa before potentially negotiating with Prince Fielder - guess who his agent is?

Maybe, but don't we all know Scott Boras well enough to know he won't give the Brewers a discount or any favor whatsoever because they drafted his kid?

Of course we do, but maybe the Brewers hoped to take a flier with their 30th round pick in hopes of saving $1-2 million?

I guarantee you won't slag off Texas chili if you try it.
