Great baseball pod
Awesome listen for people who are die hard Indians fans. TJ and Zack know the teams history and know baseball. Better than local talk radio, that's for sure.
Just my take!
I was born and raised in Ravenna, a die hard Tribe fan. I saw the 1948 World Series with my Mom. Feller 1-0. What you have created is wonderful. We are retired, 76 + 64 years old, living south of Disney World. Yes, Winter Haven. We really enjoyed their spring trainings but understand why they moved to AZ. We are ready for my 70th season. Got my Direct TV MLB subscription.
Love our players moves, Love the youngsters, Mejia, wow. The Twins, Maurer has one more year until Medicare. You are right, Twins are the “best of the rest”! They were a little above their heads and we have to figure it out. Dangerous, Nah! We just have to figure out why they are a little troublesome for us. Cano is still a mystery. Your podcast is on our phones.
Keep up the great work. We follow not only the Tribe, (sad to see Chief retired but do sincerely understand), but also the Browns and Cavs. You guys on this site are fabulous and did I say very,very competent! Please keep up the great work!!
