Banter Edit

Sam says he spent his weekend killing ants and Ben spent his 'lounging by a pool in upstate New York'.

Notes Edit

  • How should teams value and trade for a chance at the single game wild card?
  • Should the Angel's performance this season change opinions on Jerry Dipoto?
  • Brief discussion about new GMs firing the current manager to install their 'own man'.
  • Sam, at the end of the podcast: "Ben let's wrap it up. Twenty-two minutes I believe, this is ridiculous".
