WalkOff Talk: Episode of Burp [Podcast]


WalkOff Talk is back, but this time we are guest-less. No worries, we have plenty to talk about. Here’s Audra to break it down for you.

Spring Training has arrived! It is finally baseball season again, HALLELUJAH! In the intro to Episode 16, Audra tells a story about Spring Training in 2013 and becomes an old woman in two minutes’ time, with the help of Steve Stewart. In the meat of the episode, Ben & Audra discuss Ervin Santana and the fact that he (still!) has not signed anywhere, the decline of the free agent market that nobody expected, and the state of the Royals without him. Then they briefly discuss the triple slash line along with OPS and OPS+ and then close it up with some car talk.

BONUS: PENGUINS.
