Cheap Seats Chatter: MLB Grab-Bag Friday


It’s Friday again, meaning that it’s time for another episode of Overtime Heroics’ Baseball podcast, Cheap Seats Chatter. As always, Fridays are reserved for MLB Grab-Bag day. A little of this, a little of that… you get the drift.

In this episode, host Cole Raines is joined by Joe Borek and Ken Allison to discuss a little bit about a whole lot of things in and around MLB.
