Coe College Kohawks left fielder and South Side Sox writer Luke Smailes hops on for his SSS podcast debut, determined to spend only about 10% of the program talking Tony La Russa.

It seems that goal was achieved, as only a wee bitta La Russa is discussed, among a whole lotta Hot Stove:

  • The Eloy Jiménez dilemma
  • Why are the top two free agent availables scarred by scandal?
  • Finding ways to fill out a rotation that’s just two-fifths complete
  • The virtues of Robbie Grossman
  • Looking for rotation relief in Colorado? (or: Andrew Vaughn hitting 8,000 bombs at Coors Field)
  • Why José Quintana won’t become Gio González
  • Luke’s 2021 draft eligibility
  • The majesty that was Garrett Crochet’s 2020 debut
  • Dylan Cease as the fulcrum of next season’s staff pitching success
