It's the return of Jason and a very long show as we have lots of prospect lists to discuss, as well as my unhealthy obsession with baseball media in the digital age. To help us conquer the latter, we enlist Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated to discuss the new world of breaking news and then to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors about his position as the gatekeeper for breaking stories. It's a fascinating subject, and both guests are up to the task. As always, there's your emails and the goofy stuff, and set aside about three hours, as this is a long one.

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