A82CDBFF-C77E-4445-B8C3-014B3F5288ACToday, June 18, 2019, at 7:30 PM EDT (4:30 PM PDT) I will be doing a live podcast via Twitter.

So visit @LOCKEDONMLB at that time with questions that I will answer, or at least try to.

Meanwhile Mike Trout is good, so is Masahiro Tanaka and I play parts of interviews with Locked On Reds host Jeff Carr and Tell Your Friends host Liam McEneaney.

This is the Locked On MLB Podcast hosted by me, Paul Francis Sullivan. Please call me Sully.
