Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

On the 29th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. pine over the (temporary) loss of Shawn, but quickly recover enough to talk about the consistency in the Pirates' front office and dugout. With new four-year deals signed for both Neal Huntington and Clint Hurdle, the guys try to figure out if stable governance at the helm is a good thing, or if the Pirates may need a mutiny in order to get the wind back in their sails. (Yeah, we've got figurative language here.) Plus, there's discussion of Victor Robles' callup-and how that will affect the Nationals in the postseason-and the injury to another talented young center fielder: Bradley Zimmer. Then it's on to the Juan Nicasio disaster arbitrage opportunity in Philadelphia, Jimmy The Ace's season-ending injury, and finally a shallow dive into Scott Alexander and his new role in the Royals' bullpen.
