Episode 18: So That Happened
For various reasons, including lawyers, it's been roughly half a season since a full podcast. That means there's a lot to talk about. Most things happening on the field are not good, while things in the stands and in the community are wonderful. There's an #askPadre on the Rust Belt Derby, Sean points out that the standard narrative about what's wrong with the team doesn't seem to be truly correct and we get into the rest of the division on and off the field. Dedication: The trademark practice team at Brooks Kushman who gave us pro-bono assistance when the lawyers came calling over our previous name.
