Chris Sale was dealt to the Red Sox from the White Sox… and oddly it could make a lot of sense for both teams.

mlbreportscoverOne Thousand Five Hundred straight days of podcasting.

Today, along with the audio that as always can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes, I did a video podcast to mark the occasion.

It is the Sunday Request… and evidently the tweet I was going to respond to has been erased. Go figure.

Well, friend of the Podcast @IlliniDodgers had issues with something I said in a previous podcast. I think he was right.

Along the way I tried to talk about a 60 second wait time to respond on Twitter and minority manager hirings.

It is a podcast of tough questions. Maybe I don’t have the answers, but I know we need to ask them.
