On Episode 79 of Starting 9, we’ve got an awesome interview with Trevor Bauer and noted Deadspin hater Mike Clevinger of the Cleveland Indians. They took the time to hop on the Starting 9 RV last week to tell some hilarious stories. On top of that, the Manny Machado to the Padres news broke while they were with us, so we got a live reaction to that news from Bauer, who could not be happier that Machado is staying in the National League.
We’ve got a shit ton more of these interviews on the way as the weeks roll on. This technically counts as last week’s episode, so we’re dropping the Nolan Arenado interview on Thursday.
All that, plus we’ve got Kyle Freeland of the Rockies, Walker Buehler and Max Muncy of the Dodgers, Scooter Gennett of the Reds, Matt Olson, Sean Manaea, Daniel Mengden and Ryan Dull of the A’s, Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Eric Thames of the Brewers, Evan Longoria of the Giants, Lucas Giolito of the White Sox, and that’s just our Arizona trip. We’re headed to Florida this Sunday and we’ve got even more guests for that trip lined up than we had in Arizona. Baseball’s back and the #SpikesUpTour rolls on.
