Episode 111 is now available for your listening pleasure.

This week's rundown:

  • Now with six straight games of pitching more than eight innings per start and leading the American League in complete games, where does Chris Sale stand in the current Cy Young race?
  • In light of Major League Baseball’s suspension for San Diego Padres GM, AJ Preller, I thought we should take a moment and discuss in general what type of information is kept in a player's medical profile. What are the dangers of teams withholding certain information from others? Is this a prevalent practice in baseball?

    Our guest this week is "The Injury Expert," Will Carroll [Segment begins at 16:45] to help answer these questions. He also shares his thoughts about James Shields shoulder and back, how Clayton Kershaw will be full strength for the postseason, the risk of Rich Hill's blister, and the Cleveland Indians handling Danny Salazar.
  • To end the show, we answer your questions in P.O. Sox. Here is a couple that made the show:
