Chin Music, Episode 4: Am I Loose Enough?

Here we go again. This week, I dip into the deep FanGraphs talent pool and welcome Eric Longenhagen as the co-host. It’s a baseball-heavy discussion, as we talk about MLB’s scouting plans this season, what the hell the Rangers are doing by planning to fill their ballpark on Opening Day, and the early weirdness of the 2021 draft board. Later, we are joined by The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler, who talks about the vibes in Tampa, the Yankees, and how you can now return to camp just a few days after having a pacemaker installed. Then it’s lots of listener emails and a bit of culture before we depart after realizing that this thing is already more than two-and-a-half hours long. Now go put it in your ears.

Music by Nathan Bernaix.

This was awesome. I don’t know if Kevin’s plan is to do the rotating co-host permanently, but Kevin & Eric doing this regularly or having their own pod together would be great.
