Podcast: Early season surprises with David Brown
Rash judgements, weird in-game interviews, rally possums, magic lightbulbs and more
Three weeks into the season is enough time to project playoff series and make all kinds of lasting judgements about teams and players, right? Even if it’s not David Brown joins Andy to help do it.
They talk about the team with the biggest run differential in the NL (the Cubs), the worst in both leagues (the A’s) and others who are off to good and bad starts.
Cardinals fans are already turning on Willson Contreras, David Ross is giving out charity replay challenges, pitch clock rules are being misapplied or at least overly enforced, there are awkward in-game interviews and ESPN is actually paying players to do them now.
They discuss Rick Sutliffe’s Rosé colored glasses for mundane fundamental baseball things, rally possums, the Cubs new magic lightbulbs, even more potential new rules and much more.
