Stick to baseball

Great baseball talk, but a bit to political.

Why the negative rabbit hole

I was so excited to see your latest episode drop after the announcement of the MLB starting. It’s been a really tough few months mentally and it was finally nice to get some good news. Now I understand that’s not a perfect scenario and there are still many pitfalls but this should be at least in part a distraction from the hardships and hear about them in excruciating detail for 37:20 minutes was too much. I had to turn it off.
I hope you decide to make the next episode more about the games and players.
