Pigs, Parties and Fireball

In this episode you will find: The denizens of MILB in full force, post Winter Meetings. MLR breaks down the Wil Myers deal, holiday parties and the live mascot feeding schedule. Hamburgers shaped like hot dogs and the San Diego chicken also make a guest appearance.

Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:

Here we go again, with a semblance of a schedule after the long layoff, MLR is back in full force. MLR tackles the Winter Meetings trade show, affiliate dinners and more. Also, with Tampa Bay and the Padres dominating the airwaves, we ask the question “If you could own an MLB team, which one would it be and why?” (Keep in mind San Diego has more breweries than any other city in the country).

Mike may have taken a few fireball shots at the Winter Meetings and Sam needs to tell you about the rule 5 draft (he really does, its his thing). Junior Spivey is now a player agent and Cuba could be back in play after 60 years of political exile.

It’s About Time

It’s been too long, so we put together a show, just in time for the Winter Meetings. Our apologies for the delay, life got in the way. Thanks to everyone for checking in on us over the past few months!

Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:

After a six month hiatus due to slacking, laziness and the real world getting in the way, the MLR report is back. You might notice a significant drop off in audio and production quality and that is due to the absence of our good buddy Nick, who is producing his Inside the Jungle podcast on a daily basis (whoot!).

In this episode we introduce Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, longtime voice of the Lansing Lugnuts and accomplished author. MLR hopes to use his talents and diligence to record more than one show every six months.

Also in this show (we are dubbing the MLR resurrection) we discuss new affiliations, new team names and season standouts. Winter meetings chit chat and of course some Rule 5 mixed in along the way. A special thanks to everyone who inquired as to our whereabouts the last few months. We know you all missed the hard-hitting questions such as “what team name do you like better, the Tortugas or the Shuckers” this week.

Going to a Minor League ballpark this week? Don’t forget to send us your pics to our Instagram account @mlrpodcast and hashtag them with #mlrpodcast and we’ll be sure to include them in our podcast posts.
