Adam LaRoche Hot Takes for a Chilly Spring

If you like your takes hot, then this week's episode is for you!

On this week's Tri-State at the Plate, Andy and Bob discuss some pretty hot takes about Adam LaRoche's retirement. The duo then discuss the value of hitting Andrew McCutchen second in the Pirates' lineup, Cutch's bum knee that should be on the mend, righty Juan Nicasio's amazing spring line, and they finish with an update on the triage of Jung-ho Kang and super-prospect Austin Meadows. Bob then talks Tribe baseball including, but not limited to: Cleveland sending home players from camp, Trevor Bauer's pitching strengths and woes, Francisco Lindor going batty for bunts, and the ever-evolving outfield situation in Cleveland.

Spring Has Sprung and So Has Kang

Real baseball has returned in Florida and Arizona this spring!  Position battles and weird injuries are everywhere as Andy and Jason talk about Hunter Pence and his broken forearm.  Andy talks about both of those things in regards to Pirates as Corey Hart has a hot tub related injury and Jung-ho Kang hits an opposite field home run.  Andy also talks about the 5th starter spot in the Pirates' rotation being up for grabs as well as catcher Francisco Cervelli bonding well with staff ace Gerrit Cole.  Jason then jumps into the conversation talking about his favorite players to watch in camp (Francisco Lindor) and his undying love for Bruce Chen, even though Dan in Buffalo does not approve.  Jason also talks about Trevor Bauer's clean mechanics and the 5th starter spot in the Tribe's rotation as well.
