We go from guest free to guest packed, as Rays special assistant Rocco Baldelli joins us to talk about his playing career, its untimely end, and transitioning into scouting. Then it's Qamar Zaman, who made quite a name for himself by quitting his indy league play-by-play job on the air. As always, we have emails, plenty of prospect talk, and the goofy stuff at the end, and hope you enjoy the show.
Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.
