Great title for a podcast!
Love DOB. Hate his politics that sneak through in his tweets sometimes...but as a baseball writer I think he’s second to none. I really appreciate all the hard work he puts in year round and his willingness to interact with his readers. Thank you for this podcast DOB..I intend to be listening weekly!
