2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's with the Anthony Recker love on the podcast?!
(Tom from Eugene, OR.)
Home-Recker is the best-looking player in baseball. Not great at hitting, fielding, or any of the other yardsticks by which we traditionally evaluate players, but he deserves to be recognized for what he does do well. (Ben Lindbergh)
