Episode 65: Kickety-Flip, Flippety-Kick

by Kevin Goldstein

Jason moved into his new place in Mexico City and discovered that his internet connection was well, kind of horrible. So no Jason this week as I'm joined by best friend of the podcast Jorge Arangure of ESPN as we talk about some September call ups, everything awful with the Dodgers and how things really work in the Dominican Republic (he should know, he's writing a book about it). Our special guest is Josh Boyd, the Director of Pro Scouting for the Texas Rangers, and our listener of the week selected tawdry photos for the glossy pages of Us Weekly. Then it's the goofy stuff, including a pop culture moment that brought me untold joy. 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.
