We’d like to dedicate this week’s episode, and ask you to please keep the lives of Michael Davidson, Chris Zanetis, and Chris Raguso in your thoughts and prayers.
The Baseball Show, guest Steve Gardner
Opening Day has arrived for the 2018 Major League Baseball season, and we’ve got USA Today’s Steve Gardner (@SteveAGardner) in the building for some chatter.
Steve shares his background on getting into sports writing; additionally his role in TOUT and LABR leagues; and some Draft strategies he employed for this season (3:56); we then got into Vlad Guerrero, Jr’s dramatic walk off home run; and just how soon is too soon for the emerging slugger (13:44); also discussed was the potential breakouts of Colin Moran and Brandon Nimmo (18:05); from there we looked at the Tigers and if Leonys Martin has finally found permanent residence, as well as 3B’man of the future Jeimer Candelario (20:04); next we debated the impact of Denard Span on Mallex Smith’s at bats (22:20); whether Jack Flaherty is ready for a rotation spot (24:12); especially relevant to this week, the tale of Scott Kingery (26:58); and finally what to expect from Ketel Marte and Jorge Soler (33:00).
