Sure there's lots of baseball and prospect talk, but you also get an education on exactly what's going on with the Dodgers from Josh Fisher of DodgerDivorce.com, and we talk about television, writing and a certain 2012 draft prospect with Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost. I also force my dog to make noises. What else could you ask for? As always, we hope you 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.

They sped up the recording .... its like listening to "Alvin and the Chipmunks" doing "Baseball Tonight" (ok ... maybe not)

I would listen to that though the dulcet tones would not be so dulcet.

We actually tried to tighten it up a little, as 55 was just out of control. We failed.

We had a player's dad start sending nasty PMs to people posting on a Royals board several years back. It was crazy.

And before anyone asks, all I'll say is that it was a first round pick who flopped--which ought to leave a large enough population for plausible deniability.
