Barry Bonds’ grievance, how much extra defenders would change things, and memorable players of today.
Topics: Alex Rodriguez home run bonuses and the designated hitter. Also hella rambling.
In which Matt and Jason talk about the Royals Fight Wars and Josh Hamilton’s escape from the evil clutches of Arte Moreno.
I posted about this already, but now I actually have the mp3 and it’s a normal podcast, except for how I disappear for two minutes in the middle because of technical difficulties. Anyway, Matt and I talk about … uh. Well, I don’t remember. Baseball, probably.
I don’t know what the hell the story is with the technology. For now, you can listen on the web by clicking here. The video is supposed to go into my YouTube video manager, from where I can download, turn into an mp3, and then upload as the podcast you know and love. So far, that’s not happening. If it does happen, I’ll update and y’all can listen as normal. But until it does, unfortunately, it looks like that link is the best we’ve got.
