It’s incredibly disappointing but not surprising.

I was listening to the most recent episode, perhaps the last episode ever and what I heard caused me to leave this review. It’s incredibly disappointing but not surprising. Another hiatus? This is the offseason and a lack of baseball content is absolutely crushing.

Almost like hearing that the biggest free agent signing a team has made is Craig Kimbrel.

Hey I paid a lot of money for a signed mystery ball and what I pulled Craig Kimbrel. I could try to make it sound better and maybe flip it but no… it’s not for me to try to convince people that adding Craig Kimbrel is a plus move.
