2038 FL Pacific Free Agency Review
 Ron's still driving. Stephen and I are still commenting, largely patting each other on the back as we finish up the FA wrapup series with the Frick Pacific. Valencia seems to be moving in the right direction, and Hawaii's inactivity is compared to Boise's. There's a wrap-up at the end where we say the same things again.   Valencia 02:10 San Fernando 11:31 Long Beach 17:10 Hawaii 27:23 California 34:28 Wrap-up 45:00

2038 FL Frontier Free Agency Review
 Ron Collins, Stephen Lane and Ted Schmidt review the FL Frontier division FA signings. This was recorded prior to spring training. Jeff proves us to be prescient about Boise after we spend a lot of time missing the most obvious reason for their lack of early FA activity. We spend entirely too long trying to unravel the mystery of Michael Durham.   Boise 0:27 Calgary 06:48 Edmonton 13:55 Seattle 15:10 Vancouver 26:30

2038 JL Southeast Free Agency Review
 Randy Weigand, Stephen Lane, and Ted Schmidt Review the 2038 Johnson League Southeast FA signings. This was recorded prior to Spring Training and does not include any signings after that time. I decided to break these into division based segments this year as all six divisions would be nearly four hours of content. Some are longer than others, but division based segments seemed more natural than time based ones. In regards to the discussion around OSA scouting stuff at the end. I think Ron suggested that maybe Armstrong being incorrect has to do with him being called a reliever. That's possible. I'm sure there's some pattern. Still, I find it hard to believe setting a guy with three 10 rated pitches that are developed to "RP" would make his stuff a 7. We may be wrong in some parts there, but something is still goofy. Also, I realized during editing we did a poor job of actually giving the contract info. So it is listed below. Sorry for the format. It's copied and pasted from my notes.   Huntsville 0:24 Jacksonville 6:53 Louisville 7:13 Nashville 8:56 New Orleans 11:01 Jim Armstrong/Prospect Rankings/OSA Madness 14:54 Johnson Leagueville South Huntsville Phantoms 82.1, 130 00:24 CF Paul Warren -1.8, 1.8 SP Pepe Castillo – 1.5 CL Esteban Velazquez – 8.5, 8.5 Jacksonville Hurricanes 110.9, 126 6:53 none Louisville Sluggers 69.5, 112 7:13 RP Fabiano Perolas – 1.5 – Nashville the Plans 104.4, 110 8:56 C Colby Stephens to backup for 1.2 mil and oh god I don’t care.

I decided to break these into division based segments this year as all six divisions would be nearly four hours of content. Some are longer than others, but division based segments seemed more natural than time based ones. Also, I realized during editing we did a poor job of actually giving the contract info.

2038 FL Heartland Free Agency Review
 Ron Collins, Stephen Lane, and Ted Schmidt Review the 2038 Frick League Heartland FA signings. This was recorded prior to Spring Training and does not include any signings after that time. I decided to break these into division based segments this year as all six divisions would be nearly four hours of content. Some are longer than others, but division based segments seemed more natural than time based ones. By the way, Ron, I noticed now how you bowed out of reviewing your own signings, but made Stephen and I talk about ours. Sneaky.

2038 JL Sun Belt Free Agency Review
Randy Weigand, Stephen Lane, and Ted Schmidt Review the 2038 Johnson League Southeast FA signings. This was recorded prior to Spring Training and does not include any signings after that time. I decided to break these into division based segments this year as all six divisions would be nearly four hours of content. Some are longer than others, but division based segments seemed more natural than time based ones. The end of this segment includes a wrapup, as well as a discussion of FA strategy that I think has some good points. Also, I realized during editing we did a poor job of actually giving the contract info. So it is listed below. Sorry for the format. It's copied and pasted from my notes.  Las Vegas 0:20 Mexico City 08:13 Phoenix 08:56 San Antonio 13:58 Wichita 21:34 Review/Favorite Deals/Big Fa contracts 33:40 FA strategy discussion 38:15 Johnson League Sun Belts Las Vegas Hustlers 108, 120 00:20 SP Mauro Flores – 26.5, 25.5, opt, 25.5, 25.5 v, 25.5 v C Antonio Robles – 1.5, 1.5TO, 1.5TO Util Carlos Camacho -2.8,3.2,3.8 V – Mexico City Rainouts 87.3, 100 08:13 RP Leonardo Gonzales – 2.35, 1.9 TO, 1.9 TO Phoenix Rotator Cuffs 104.6, 120 08:56 CL Dillon Young – 3, 4 TO San Antonio Banditos 109.1, 128 13:58 C Jose Gamboa – 1 CF Willard Gagne - 11 RP Ramon Garza – 2.5 RP Jesus Casas – 1 Wichita Stus 85.5, 120 21:34 2B Gabriel Talamate – 4.5, 4.5, 5, 7, 7TO, 8 PO Fungible Starters for 1-3 mil (sorry, they weren't in my notes)

2038 FA Crowd Sourced Predictions- Batters
Randy and Ted continue to discuss your predictions. Ted inadvertently gives away all of Stever's estimates (not really). Ted makes one prediction that is immediately proven wrong (it's the last thing I say).

2038 Crowd Sources FA Estimates- Pitchers
We were down a host, as Stephen had to cancel. So it's Ted and Randy, at our curmudgeonly best. This is a bit dry, lots of numbers, but still interesting I think. I've attached a spreadsheet with averages. Also, Randy and I tried to predict whether the players would beat or come in under your predictions.

Ted and Randy Rant About...The 2037 BBA Regular Season!
 [*editors note - As usual I was late posting. This was recorded before the Geoghegan round, but not posted until after it, because 3+ hours of work to edit and post a < 1.5 hour podcast is obnoxious and I hate doing it.] Randy Weigand and Ted Schmidt bring you the Brewster's first truly worldwide podcast. We lament Randy's alcohol shortage. I flex my beer snob muscles a bit, and then we undertake a rambling review of the season. Discussion starts with Edmonton's resurgence and Seattle's pitching woes. Ted's penchant for playing legacy players comes up before we wander through the rest of the Frick Frontier. Our meandering continues with the Frick Pacific, where it was a two team race all year. More pitching woes in Hawaii (injuries) and Valencia (bad players and lumping) prompt a discussion of broken OAS pitcher scouting. We then finish up the Frick with the Heartland, where we talk about Omaha's pitching futures and Lucas McNeil's mystery year. Discussion of the Johnson League starts with a contract discussion about Rockville and continues into what could be an exciting free agency for pitching. At this point we start to look at how well (or not) Ted did in the media guide projections. Ted is still tickled about Alan's budget and cap shenanigans. The Southeast is next, where the news is Kyle's frustrations and Nashville's weird season. We wonder what happened to Kevin Morales. On to the Sun Belt, which was decided basically by randomness and luck. Ted is totally wrong about a player. Domenic Wyatt struck out a lot, and the Outlaws free agents are reviewed. We have some fun with the worst (best?) game of the year.  Finally, some playoff predictions that are already wrong.

GM's Corner Ep. 15- Madison's Chris Wilson
Chris Wilson and Ron Collins have a half-hour talk that covers the Wolves past, present, and future. The nature of baseball in an online league. History, coaching, teaching, and maybe a little Mons Raider here and there ... oh, and we get little lines like "when I won my _first_ Landis" tossed around like those things are just so much candy.

GM's Corner Ep. 14- San Antonio's Mike Calvaruso
Host Ron Collins talks with Mike Calvaruso about the past, present, and future of the San Antonio franchise. Along the way we touch on some of the franchise's top player's, it's construction in its glory days, the impact of injuries, and even discuss a trade worth many stars.

GM's Corner Ep. 13- Des Moines' Edward Murphy
  Ed Murphy and Ron Collins take an afternoon chat to cover all things Des Moines. We take a look back at Ed's considerable time with the league, talk about his two superstars and the way he's looking at the current season. Of course, there's a bout of Ed in the lightning round, and then Ed's question that leads to the revelation of my mega-spreadsheet (natch, right?). Oh, yeah. There might be mention of a trade in there somewhere.
