On this week’s episode, we begin by paying tribute to Baseball Hall of Famers Joe Morgan and Whitey Ford, who passed away this week at the age of 91, and 77 respectively. From there, we discuss two new openings across baseball, one in Chicago, where the White Sox relieved Manager Rick Renteria of his duties, and one in Cincinnati, where Dick Williams stepped down as the head of Baseball Operations. To wrap up, we discuss the $18.9 million free-agent qualifying offer for this offseason, before recapping a Divisional Round (and analyzing the ensuing LCS matchups) that saw the Rays and Astros advance in the AL, and the Dodgers and Braves in the NL.
