We promised we'd make it up to you and we did. We have the usual great emails, and two weeks of prospect lists to catch up on, but the special guests are the highlights. First, we're joined by both Jim Callis of Baseball America and Keith Law of ESPN to discuss the process of making a Top 100 (or 101) prospect list, as well as some differences we have and how the public reacts that lists. Then, in light of this week's big news, Mark Fainaru-Wada joins me to talk about the process that went into breaking the Ryan Braun story in December as well as the righteous indignation that has come with the reaction. Then it's a bit of the goofy stuff and we're all done. 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.

Only on Up and In can a segment be titled "End this Shit" and last nine and a half minutes.

I love Fridays.

The brain trust of Law, Callis, and Goldstein was even better than I'd hoped it would be. Really, really informative and awesome.
I can't get the cast to work on my phone or Google TV (usually both work). Any ideas?
It's not working for me either.
Not that I was pointing a finger at Fainaru-Wada but does he write about non-MVPs?
Good show. It would be awesome if you could have Law and Callis on more often. That was a great segment, IMO. I could listen to the three of you (and the Professor) talk prospects all day.
Great show as usual.

Just bought the Water and Bodies album, love the sound!
