I branch away from baseball a little bit in today's episode to talk about why Andrew Luck made the right decision to retire when he did. He doesn't deserve the criticism that he's gotten, especially when all-time great athletes such as Sandy Koufax have made similar decisions. Plus, Bryce Harper named his son Krew (???), Francisco Cervelli needs to learn how to slide, and we do the first ever Foul Ball Area beer review. Check it out on this week's edition of Foul Ball Area!
With the RCBL season over, I shift my focus back to Major League Baseball. I spend the first half of today's episode talking about the Braves and my love for Ronald Acuna, Jr. The 21-year-old superstar is having a superb season and belongs in the MVP conversation. I also touch on old timers giving their opinions about the modern game of baseball, and whether or not tanking is good for the competitiveness of the sport.
