ankiel pod 143

This week’s episode features an interview with former MLB pitcher and hitter Rick Ankiel, who chats with us for the first time since the 2017 All-Star Game in Washington DC. We get into the Astros sign-stealing/cheating scandal that’s been reported by The Athletic; we review our pre-season awards pick with the first two coming on Monday and Tuesday and the Cy Young announcement on Wednesday and the MVP on Thursday; and I deliver my Stockton, California essay – one that’s worth the wait.
