The Three True Outcomes podcast is back with our fifth episode of 2017. We take some listener questions about soft versus hard and whether we’d want Mookie Betts on our team. We go through a list of our guys (aka, players you should avoid). Finally, we share our love of the WBC. And both puzzle and dragons.
