Ben Verlander and Alex Curry discuss the recent MLB Hall of Fame voting that saw only Scott Rolen get voted in with Todd Helton, Carlos Beltrán, Billy Wagner and Andruw Jones not making the cut. They also discuss how MLB needs to update their voting process. Ben and Alex breakdown Japan’s World Baseball Classic lineup with Shohei Ohtani and make their choice for the best WBC lineup between Team USA, Dominican Republic & Japan.
Ben gives his Top-5 Losers from this offseason as well as his Third Base Tiers. Then, Ben also touches on the Houston Astros hiring of Dana Brown as their new general manager and why he thinks it’s a great hire. This week we switch it up from ‘Name That Player’ to ‘Name That Team’ where we give you where the infield of a team went to high school, college or country they signed from and you guess the team!
It’s Ben Verlander’s birthday and he wants to give the fans the gift of a custom Flippin’ Bats wood bat! All you have to do is listen or watch the full episode and follow the instructions for your chance to win!
