Summary Edit

Ben Lindbergh and Jeff Sullivan discuss the Giancarlo Stanton trade’s impact on the Yankees, whether and why the Marlins are an embarrassment (and where they’ll go from here), the Orioles’ attitude toward international players, and the Hall of Fame admitting Alan Trammell and Jack Morris. Then they bring on listener Lazaro Rodriguez, a certified Marlins fan, to talk about his reaction to the Stanton trade and ask him to explain why he’s still a Marlins loyalist.

Notes Edit

  • The Orioles were one of three teams that did not make a pitch for Shohei Ohtani.
  • Laz didn't know there was baseball in Miami before moving to the USA from Cuba.
  • Laz: “No one questions my loyalty [when they find out I'm a Marlins fan], they question my sanity"
  • Laz is happy that Giancarlo Stanton was traded to Yankees because he escaped the Marlins.
