Guys, if you can say (and I'll understand if you can't): what was behind the decision to use Joe Strauss as the local sportswriter voice in this, rather than someone like Derrick Goold or Jenifer Langosch or B. J. Rains? Without going into detail or throwing stones, I think that this interview would have gone rather differently if you'd picked one of those other folks to talk to instead.

Either way, I enjoyed this; thanks for doing it. It's perceptive to home in on "player development" as something that this organization does well. I've thought for a long time that player development was a subject that BP could render us a service by examining closely across the majors. Maybe this will prompt someone on staff to do that.
