Nothing Minor about Showalter opinion and oh mercy

Former major league manager Buck Showalter brought a lot to the broadcast booth, when he joined New York Yankees TV voice Michael Kay for the regular season-ending series in Texas.  I thought Buck offered interesting opinions and anecdotes.  Plus, he was not shy about giving his opinion on how the Rangers "contrived" to get pitcher Mike Minor his 200th strike out of the season.  I talk about this in the podcast.

Plus, what about a mercy rule in major league baseball?  In August, when New York Yankees
Kay, Showalter/YT grab
manager Aaron Boone suggested a mercy rule be adopted, it led to a round table discussion in the Hartford Yard Goats press box.  And yours truly served as the moderator.  We recorded the forum for a presentation in between games of a doubleheader and we offer the replay as part of the podcast.

I would love to get your opinion on both topics in the podcast, so feel free to join the discussion with your comments below this piece.
