Episode 94 is much shorter than typical for our shows. Here is this week's rundown:

  • Chicago White Sox lost another series, the fourth straight series loss, and now a five-game lead has dwindled down to 2.5 games. Leaving many fans wanting to jump off the ledge on the 2016 season and call it  a total loss. Yes, the team is struggling, but there are plenty of reasons why Sox fans should be content with the current standing and not lose hope.
  • Jim answers questions about Jimmy Rollins playing time at shortstop and how much longer that will last. Why we should wait until after the MLB Draft in June to get serious about midseason trades, and the possibility of acquiring Oakland A's Josh Reddick and Sonny Gray despite both players now on the disabled list.
