PaulCaputo ,

Polished and entertaining!

This is a well-produced, high-quality podcast. More than that, I particularly love the joy that James brings to talking about baseball. He genuinely loves everything about the game, from his Astros to the quirks of minor league and independent ball.

I sat next to you

You went to Busch stadium and I was a kid that was sitting diagonal from you and a ball went right over you barely and the people behind you fought it I barely missed it too and you told me to check out you’re podcast and I love it now
