In this week's episode, we have more talk about fixing the draft, the legacy of Lou Piniella and trying to figure out what matters when thinking about award season. Ken Davidoff of Newsday then joins us to discuss the Roger Clemens indictment and his nightly record predictions. Then we wrap it all up with recipes, Bob Uecker, and the usually wackiness. As usual, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do in putting it together.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
