Artificial Turf Wars Ep. 87: A Not So Minor (League) Issue


Episode 87

Emily Waldon of The Athletic Detroit stops by to discuss the treatment of minor leaguers including the low pay, non-baseball requirements, movements for change, and what people can do to help. Greg and Josh also talk about the war of words between players, agents, and the MLB, Joe Biagini’s viability as a 5th starter and the subsequent impact on the rest of the pitching staff, and the current offensive roster and the many options it presents for manager John Gibbons. Finally, they answer listener questions and give a Do Over to a player agent.

Note: The show is now going biweekly unless something important breaks, but there will be occasional special bonus episodes of “Extra Pellets” with in depth content exclusively for Patreon donors.
