In Episode 88, Brock & Ben (via email) return to assess another busy week of offseason baseball. After taking an early detour into switching uniforms & alcohol & MLB, the guys settle in to revisit all the activity of the week since the last episode. Coverage focuses primarily on the most significant transactions, in particular the Red Sox’ dual signings of Pablo Sandoval & Hanley Ramirez. There’s more than enough time to touch on the less marquee signings, as well, though. The guys touch on Kyle Seager’s extension with the Mariners, the White Sox’ recent signings – Adam LaRoche & Zach Duke, the A’s recent signings – Billy Butler & Ike Davis – & the Dodgers’ recent acquisitions – Joel Peralta & Juan Nicasio. The Giancarlo Stanton extension also finds its way back onto the podcast as the guys reassess the contract in light of the significant backloading it features. The podcast closes with a brief assessment of the 2015 Hall of Fame ballot.
