Episode 20: Orix Buffaloes Andrew Albers
On this episode we finally debut our earliest interview to date. Former Minnesota Twin, Seattle Mariner and Toronto Blue Jay pitcher Andrew Albers joins the show from Japan. The Saskatchewan native made his first all-star team in 2018 and made the guys get up at 4:30 am to talk to him. It is truly a great interview! They discuss his many times representing Canada at the WBC and at the Olympics. We also discuss his time in the big leagues, his one game as a Blue Jay and his transition from North America to Japanese baseball.
As for the rest of the show, we rip on Gabe Kapler again in an ode to the shows beginnings. We also discuss the Andrew McCutchen trade, the Marlins bringing some excitement to their ballpark next year and the Wall Street Journal article suggesting another whacky rule to fix baseball.
