We open this week by discussing The Athletic’s report that Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway sexually harassed multiple female reporters during his time in Cleveland, New York, and Los Angeles (1:08). Then, we discuss the Nolan Arenado trade from every angle: how good Arenado is, whether this makes St. Louis a serious contender, and what exactly the Rockies are doing (21:30). Finally, we wave goodbye to Dustin Pedroia’s career by inviting Joon Lee, a Red Sox fan, and Randy Wilkins, a Yankees fan, to discuss what Pedroia’s lasting legacy will be (55:00).
