This episode was fucking brilliant!

Cistulli, you are an acquired taste. But I’ve got the palate for it now. And I just want more!

My only disappointment is that you didn’t talk about Nakajima, and what the perception is of being paid $3m+ to play in the American minor leagues.

But in all seriousness, thanks to you and Mr. Newman. This was utterly enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable. Arigatou!
