Baseball Is Dead Episode 185: Astros For Life?

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
Jose Altuve signed a 5-year extension with the Astros which will presumably keep him in Houston for the rest of his playing career. We talk about how this might influence Alex Bregman’s decision in his upcoming free agency campaign. Kershaw is returning to the Dodgers and we’re talking about what we can realistically expect from him production-wise moving forward. We also have Billy Eppler’s suspension and how this may change “phantom IL” rules, Josh Hader’s comments on why he wouldn’t go more than three outs with the Padres, and our Mt. Rushmore of Pitchers! Thanks for listening and we’ll see you next week!
