Chilly Spring Training Talk

It's freezing in Northwestern Pennsylvania, but things are starting to heat up in Bradenton, Florida and Goodyear, Arizona... because pitchers and catchers have reported and we're a few days away from Spring Training starting! On this week's podcast, Andy and Bob discuss the New York Yankees' new ticket policy, their capitalist agenda, and Lonn Trost's horrible comments towards Yankee fans. Andy then discusses Andrew McCutchen's contract extension talk at length and discusses his role as the Pirates' Derek Jeter. He also talks about Jung-ho Kang and Major League Baseball's new slide rule and Monday's Black and Gold game. Bob then digs into the Tribe's spring by looking at the recent signing of Craig Stammen and singing the praises of Juan Uribe. He looks at the ever-evolving outfield situation with Abraham Almonte's recent steroid suspension and how this affects Tyler Naquin and finishes up with some talk about Indians' pitching prospect Brady Aiken.

Neal Huntington Goes to Confession

"Forgive me father, for Jason Bay is my one sin."

On this week's episode, Andy and Jason discuss tanking in Major League Baseball and how neither of them think it really matters... unless you're Scott Boras and you suggest outrageous things like an "Elite Draft." Then Andy talks about Jesse Biddle joining the Pirates, Neal Huntington baring his soul to Adam Berry about trading Jason Bay (and he goes down the regrettable rabbit hole of players in that trade), and finally he talks about the top five Pirates prospects according to MLB Pipeline. Jason then fills us in on the Indians' prospect rankings as they pertain to Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier before suggesting you should become a host-family for a Minor League Baseball player. Finally he suggests checking out the Cleveland Plain Dealer for some interesting articles.
