We read emails from exotic places, we rank reliever and catcher prospects, we preview the College World Series with Will Kimmey of ESPN, we have our second straight listener of the week named Juan, and Jason hurt his back. Taste, and enjoy.

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

I really enjoyed the conversation with Juan. Like you said Kevin, I can't stand mainstream news either. I used to come for just baseball but now I enjoy whatever you so choose to spew into my ears. I'm drinking Bass and it's holding its chill quite well.
