Join us again as we briefly contemplate the feasibility of making play calls from Maricopa County Jail

Maricopa County Tent City Jail Houses Undocumented Immigrants Convicted of Crimes
Immigrant inmates walk for exercise at the Maricopa County Tent City jail on March 11, 2013 in Phoenix. The striped uniforms and pink undergarments are standard issue at the facility. The tent jail, run by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, houses undocumented immigrants who are serving up to one year after being convicted of crime in the county. Although many of immigrants have lived in the U.S for years, often with families, most will be deported to Mexico after serving their sentences.

In Episode 2 of the Killer B’s podcast, Tommy Barbee and Keelin Billue are back. It’s only been 22 days since Tony La Russa was hired, but that’s a little more than 154 days in dog time. The Killer B’s catch up on the roller coaster of awesome and not-so-awesome news, as the Hot Stove is just heating up.

Tune in as the Killer B’s discuss:

  • Tony La Russa’s most recent DUI and the White Sox silence, leaving them to briefly contemplate the feasibility of making play calls from Maricopa County Jail
  • A bountiful awards season for the White Sox including Silver Sluggers (Tim Anderson, José Abreu, Eloy Jiménez), a Golden Glove (Luis Robert), and AL MVP (Abreu)
  • The hiring of pitching coach Ethan Katz and bench coach Miguel Cairo
  • Kim Ng, the first woman GM in any of the four major sports, and the first East Asian-American general manager in major league baseball
  • The Rule 5 draft
