Poor audio quality
The interviews with Wainright, Hummel, the AZ journalist, etc., are great. The one where you two attempt to turn esoteric, often non-baseball related mentions into comedy fall totally flat for me. Thankfully we have the 15 second button on the iPhone to skip ahead many times on those! If i want comedy, iTunes has like millions of choices. Stick to baseball please.
These guys are clearly the best of the best in their league. Just pure class obviously no one does it better. The Cardinal writer's way is unmatched and the classiness oozes through my headphones. Unlike those other flashy podcasts, these guys just know how to do it the right way. You gotta respect that.
Love the podcast. Great content. I know it's early, need to soften the background music. Hard to hear when it's playing.
