Jared Porter's misconduct, Don Sutton's legacy & NL East check in with Britt Ghiroli
DOB and EOF welcome back national MLB writer for The Athletic, Britt Ghiroli, to cover myriad topics in today's show. The trio react to Hall of Fame pitcher and Braves Hall of Fame broadcaster Don Sutton passing after an extended bout against cancer (2:15). Sutton's stories in the broadcast booth were only rivaled by his on-field play, which the three examine and discuss, including mulling the chances anyone will ever see a durable, consistent pitcher, like Sutton, again. From "warm thoughts to ugliness", the triumvirate talk Mets canning former GM Jared Porter, after it was revealed he sent explicit, unsolicited pictures to a female reporter in 2016 (16:30). Britt shares instances where she was confronted and harassed by a baseball player and coach early in her career. David, Eric and Britt impart their thoughts from each of their perspectives, and attempt to comprehend why this is a reoccurring issue. Lastly, what's new in the NL East (43:30)? What can the gang glean from scant offseason moves?
