On this week’s episode, we begin by making our playoff picks for the 2021 season, with each of us having a different World Series Champion. From there, we discuss Eloy Jimenez’s torn-pectoral injury that will cost him six months. Lance McCullers Jr. and Randy Dobnak’s extensions, the MLB’s attempts to crack down on pitchers using foreign substances, extension talks for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Correa, early injuries to Luke Voit and Nick Anderson, demotions for Sixto Sanchez and Nico Horner, Gio Gonzalez’s retirement after a thirteen-year career, Mark Appel’s potential return, and incentives for players to get vaccinated.
