The MLBTR podcast, hosted by staff writer Jeff Todd, covers the latest hot stove news and features analysis and interviews.
Showcases, Rotation Help, Fantex
Steve Adams joins Jeff to discuss whether the Tim Lincecum hype makes sense, and how teams with rotation needs or surprising strength (the Phillies) can improve throughout the season. Plus, they explain the new player investment model pioneered by Fantex and speculate as to how it could impact extensions and free agency moving forward.
On this week's episode, Chuck Wasserstrom joins on the show to share his experiences as a vet of the Cubs front office and how it has shaped his writing for MLBTR and other outlets.

Great To See MLBTR as a Podcast!
This is awesome to see. If you follow the MLB season and the Hot Stove off-season via MLBTR you'll be as excited as I am to see there's a new MLBTR podcast.
After listening to the premier episode my only quibble is the sound quality ... it's rather poor. I understand guests sounding like they're on the phone (as I'm sure they often are on many podcasts and radio talk shows), but the host at least shouldn't sound like he's sitting at the bottom of a well on his cellphone and calling in his chat.
Other than that ... I look forward to the offseason with the MLBTR Podcast.
Oh ... can someone from MLBTR tell us how often the podcast will be published? Thanks!
