Episode 62: You Guys Tricky

by Kevin Goldstein

Jason returns to the show and establishes his presence with authority with tales from the bodega, specially Juan Deli. But before the goofy stuff, we talk about why Logan Morrison's demotion really isn't that big of a deal, discuss Jim Thome's tremendous face and get into a long bit on outfield prospects. Then we are joined by special guest Jim Callis of Baseball America to discuss what happened and what didn't at Monday's signing deadline, and if there is any way to fix it, or if it even needs fixing. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Reminder: Jason and I will be hosting a drinking event for podcast listeners this Friday at Lunasa on the lower east side (that's New York City, folks) beginning at 8:30 pm, and we hope to see you there.

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