When we committed to doing the pod weekly through the off-season, we have to admit we were worried we wouldn't have enough to talk about. Then the MLB went to court over TV contract rights and that MAKES US ANGRY. We also discuss the notion of automated strike zones and what that means for humanity's desperate struggle against our robot overlords. And Matt apologizes for his plosives- his pop filter fell off. Womp womp.
