The Opening Drive

The Athletic’s Jayson Stark

Jayson Stark joins the show to talk about his recent podcast with Theo Epstein and MLB’s vision for the future of baseball, what the best version of baseball could be, why rhythm and action are the two biggest parts of this discussion, the emerging question on the balls being used in the gain, the oddness of Bassitt’s comments coming from a pitcher, debating the use of humidors in every MLB stadium, the special story of Yadi & Waino this year, the greatness of Miguel Cabrera as he sets new records and joins elite clubs and a very honest outside view of the Cardinals: a run-prevention team with an offense that is built with more than a couple flaws.
