Thanks for downloading this week’s episode of the Baseball Together Podcast, baseball family! This week, Brig and Brad start with some news about Jeffrey Luhnow and a lawsuit against the Houston Astros (his former team), then they share some thoughts about the Gold Glove, Silver Slugger, and Rookie of the Year Awards. They wrap up the first segment with a short KBO Playoff update.
With the strange 2020 MLB season wrapped up, Brig and Brad look back on some of the specific rules that were put in place to help with pace of play during an abbreviated season. Some of the rules include starting extra innings with a runner on second base, 7-inning doubleheaders, and a hot debate over the universal DH.
