Episode 158 is now available. Here is this week’s rundown:
- We preview the upcoming World Series between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers what should be a terrific series. The Astros have a deeper lineup but can they avoid scoring droughts like they suffered away from home in ALCS? Is the Dodgers pitching staff too deep for Houston?
- Lots of firings and hirings in the past week. We share why Mickey Calloway is a good hire for the New York Mets. What type of manager would be a good fit for Washington and the impact Ron Gardenhire will have on the Detroit Tigers.
- For the pitchers and catchers review we addressed the four questions: What went right? What went wrong? What needs to improve in 2018? What is the future outlook for this position? Starting pitching looks great but can Rick Hahn rebuild a bullpen on the fly and what is the long-term outlook for catching?
- We also answer your questions in P.O. Sox:
