. . . And we're back with a full episode. After going through your emails, both sane and insane, we walk through the playoffs so far, and then discuss Jason's time in Arizona checking out the instructional league. Then we continue our team-by-team prospect talk with five more clubs, followed by a fascinating talk with Phil Rogers about what is going on with the Cubs search for a new general manager. Then it's the goofy stuff, with some Moneyball talk and we're out. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Hey folks. For a variety of reasons that we only kind of get into at the beginning, there was just no way a full show was going to happen this week. Still, we wanted to preview the playoffs and let's face it, Wednesday night provided just way to much to discuss. So one segment, all baseball (well, for us), and we'll be back next week with a more . . . traditional episode.

The major league season is coming to and end, but we're still podcasting. After going through your emails, we talk about how we kind of sort of have playoff races and then dive into a new feature where for the next six weeks we'll spend around five minutes on every system in baseball, going in reverse alphabetical order. Then we are joined by Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe to talk about the Red Sox slide, and it's onto the goofy stuff with a quick rant about the state of discourse with the release of Moneyball this weekend. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Jason's back in Brooklyn and back on the show, and after reading your emails and doing some wrap-up of the minor league season, we're joined by the great Sam Miller to talk about the Angels and the American League West, but he ends up being the opening act for the return of my mother, who tells you who the best prospect in baseball is . . . really. Then it's the goofy stuff and as always, we hope you enjoy.

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.

A brief (ok, for us) show in which we go through your email, talk about non-existent playoff races, what makes and MVP and show some tentative excitement about the Arizona Fall League. Then we talk to Marlins beat writer Juan C. Rodriguez about the future of baseball in south Florida and wraps things up with some tales from Mexico. As always, we hope you enjoy and thank you for listening.

For the first time since Episode 0.9 we do the show with Jason in Mexico City. There's plenty of fun, plenty of prospect talk, a long discussion of the Cubs general manager job, how the Blue Jays are the new flavor of the month and then we get serious, talking to Rany Jazayerli about Syria. As always, we hope you enjoy.

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.

It's a sad day when Jason can't do the show, but our own Jay Jaffe fills in admirably as we talk about this signing deadline, A.J. Burnett and the mysterious men in white in Toronto. Matt Leach from MLB.com joins us to discuss why the Cardinals just might be the most annoying team in baseball (except to Cardinals fans), and our listener of the week is an Ivy League philosophy and math brainiac who just finished 98th in the main event of the World Series of Poker.

Last week was our Trade Deadline special, so guess what we talk about this week? Yup, a whole bunch of trades that went down, as well as a discussion about covering the deals. Then we talk to former Dodgers general manager Dan Evans about his career and transitioning into the world of player representation, followed by the return of the producer and director of the fantastic film Cold Weather, to go with a listener contest where you can win a copy of the newly released DVD of the film. As always, we hope you enjoy.

It's a Trade Deadline and Debt Crisis special all in one! No wonder we almost hit the three hour mark. We read your emails, talk plenty of trades and then bring in ESPN's Buster Olney to help figure out what's going to happen, that our official news correspondent, Lincoln Mitchell explains the debt crisis to us, and our listener of the week, Dr. Million (I did not make that up) the astrophysicist explains how this debt mess could hinder the cause of science and what you can do to help. We also talk about hugs.

We go from guest free to guest packed, as Rays special assistant Rocco Baldelli joins us to talk about his playing career, its untimely end, and transitioning into scouting. Then it's Qamar Zaman, who made quite a name for himself by quitting his indy league play-by-play job on the air. As always, we have emails, plenty of prospect talk, and the goofy stuff at the end, and hope you enjoy the show.
