ESPN MLB Insider Buster Olney leads the baseball discussion alongside other top analysts.
David Schoenfield pinch hits and joins Buster to discuss where the Rockies could trade Trevor Story, the incomplete picture surrounding Jacob deGrom’s injury, Todd Fraizer being designated for assignment, Jordan Zimmermann hanging it up, and if no-hitters are losing their luster. Then, Sarah Langs stops by to talk about the Mariners promoting Jared Kelenic, Shohei Ohtani’s home run and strikeout numbers, and Giancarlo Stanton’s best 15-game stretch as a Yankee.

Plus, Buster’s full conversation with Freeman from Sunday Night Baseball.
Karl Ravech joins Buster to discuss the Angels designating Albert Pujols for assignment, if Pujols would be interested in being a bench player, their favorite Pujols moments and the Rays sweeping the Angels. Plus, Todd Radom spins the tale of the Cleveland Spiders for this week’s Forgotten Franchise and administers the quiz.
Jesse Rogers joins Buster to discuss why Tony LaRussa not knowing the extra-inning baserunner rule is an organizational coaching issue for the White Sox, the Dodgers’ championship hangover, Francisco Lindor benched for the second game of a doubleheader and John Means’ no-hitter.

Welcome to the Rest of Your Baseball Life
David Schoenfield joins Buster to discuss Yankee fans giving the Astros the business in the Bronx, how it affected Jose Altuve, if Yankee fans will inspire other opposing fans to taunt Houston, their level of concern for Jacob deGrom after being scratched and why Angel Hernandez deserves praise after botching a call. Then, Hembo stops by to talk about if Altuve will be a Hall of Famer, what’s behind the Giants owning the best record in baseball and Corey Seager’s defense.
I Don’t Condone Booing

Baseball Today was waaaayyy better

Missing Baseball Today - Hard!
ESPN really screwed this podcast up. Buster Olney never reaches Law, Simon & Karabell. What a loss! Also, the adverts are just plain awful.
Pretty boring since Buster Olney took over.
Please bring back Eric!!!
