WinMorr Games ,

Love it!

Ryan Roland-Smith is great! As a podcast, I do prefer the old format, but it’s super cool that the show is on TV and YouTube now. The interviews are great (my favorite was the Felix interview) and I also like Ryan’s analysis and insider’s perspective on pitching in MLB and other topics. Thanks, Ryan! Go M’s!
