Triple Play Podcast

Triple Play Podcast 24 – Samardzija, Ibanez, Hosmer, All-Stars

Matt, Hunter and Reese talk about Lou Gehrig for the 75th anniversary of his speech and use the Baseball Reference Play Index to dig up some cool stats about him.

The huge news is that the Oakland Athletics traded two of the games most highly touted prospects, Addison Russell and Billy McKinney, along with Dan Straily and a player to be named later for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel.

Eric Hosmer has been a trainwreck all the way up to the point we recorded this podcast, then promptly hit 4 extra base hits in the next 4 games. The Royals picked up Raul Ibanez and Scott Downs for some reason. They had better options.

We also talk about Royals All-Stars. Alex Gordon should have started the game. Alcides Escobar was snubbed despite being the best all-around shortstop in the league. Salvador Perez was a lock and Holland got in.
