MLBThisWeek Podcast – 2015 Scandals Already, watch us lose it at the end of the show!

It’s a great edition of the show this week. We had some live listeners stop by and join the show, for a moment anyway.

A whole lot of scandal talk going on in this edition with Josh Hamilton, Jihadi John, and the Alex Rodriguez mess with the Yankees. Is this the way we wanted to start the season off? No matter, we cover it all even the scandals here on the show.

Oh yeah, we had some gremlins toward the last minute or two of the show, so you have to check it out as we lose control of ourselves in this thing we call the MLBThisWeek Show!

Gary’s ready for reading up on some new baseball books and welcoming the sweet feeling of Spring after this tough winter that the Northeast has went through already.

A story on the Little League and how Jackie Robinson West from Chicago was stripped of it’s title, the players will get rings anyway, is this the proper way to deal with this by the adults in charge? We’ll talk about that and a story from Andrew McCutcheon on the poor players who are growing up could use some assistance, maybe some of the players could chip in?
