We’re back talking baseball on The Baseball Talk Radio Show podcast with Rich and Gary. We’re talking about the race to the finish in the MLB, a lot of interesting wild card combinations are shaping up.

We’re also going to talk about the Adam Jones comment that ‘baseball is a white man’s game.’ Jones was asked by an interviewer in a interview about the football protests that have been going on recently, and that reply came out of his mouth. We discuss it and compare it to the comments that were excellent that soothed a city on fire. Why then would he come out and say this?
