Episode 55: There's A Catfight! Hold on!

by Kevin Goldstein

We think every episode is good, but this one especially so. Our special guest is Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, our listener of the week, Professor Matt Sienkiewicz talks to us about the Middle East and the merits of Sylvester Stallone's First Blood, and I respond to Toronto's general manager Alex Anthopolous being so angry. Obviously, there's lots of other stuff too which is why the show is so damn long, and as always, we hope you enjoy.

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