Ep. 38 - Just Go Bat One Eighty, Dude, and Make Your Money
Play • 46 min

This episode begins with a look at recent Houston Astro roster moves as the Rule 5 draft approaches. Houston added five top prospects to the team's 40-man roster -- Eric and Craig critique those players to see if any might help the club in 2021. Following that, what do Johann Santana, Marwin Gonzalez and Shane Victorino have in common? All were Rule 5 draft selections - Eric and Craig look at their careers and lament what might have been if only the Astros had protected Santana all those years ago. Next, Robinson Cano has failed another MLB drug test - this one brings a 162-game suspension, a $24 million loss in guaranteed money plus possibly Hall of Fame induction. Wow! This chapter wraps with Eric and Craig asking whether Brian Bolsinger can prove damages at all?

Two weeks ago, Eric mentioned in our "Dances With Wolves" segment that he had never seen "The Outlaw Josey Wales." Well, we cured that recently and in Chapter 2, Eric tells us what he thinks about it.

In Chapter 3, the college sports scene is a train wreck with games cancelled left and right in football and basketball. Getting two teams in one place to play sometimes looks more like a game of Whack-A-Mole than anything else -- there's a game, not it's not. You get the picture.
