Some news and notes from Opening Day at Wrigley Field.
We follow up last week’s major league preview show with the minor league version, and with Jason back in Brooklyn, it’s a return to standard podcast form. After rolling through your emails, we talk about Yankees and Phillies prospects in the name of completion and then it’s 30 minutes of hardcore prospect talk as Jason and I each pick five players we will be watching intensely this season. Inspired by an email, our special guest is right-hander Steve Palazzolo who discusses the career of a journeyman who has pitched for three organizations and in three different independent leagues, and then the hawk trap guys makes a return appearance in our listener of the week segment, as he does not trap hawks anymore. Then it’s the goofy stuff, including a very special musical guest and as always, we hope you enjoy.
