Award winning journalist Darius Austin and “Peter and the Wolf” lead Tom Pringle join together on a miserable Thursday evening to talk baseball.
MLB UK have announced the lineup and itinerary for MLB Battlegrounds! Tom reads the list out (Jeff Stelling style) and the boys discuss how everyone who loves baseball has to support this event.
Then it was the turn of trades and rumours, the biggest news of the day being Bartolo Colon being DFA’d and becoming available for all 30 teams. Or does the listener question from last week make sense?
The Crap Catcher Competition gets an update, spoiler alert, you’re all going to be reading about the Blue Jays next season.
Then we get to a whole host of great listener questions including the impossible dream of a London franchise, is Nolan Arenado human and is there an MLB manager who is a bit like a dictator?
