Rank #5: An NL Central Podcast – Fulfilling Its Obligation with a 2017 Division Preview
Banished to the Pen’s full NL Central Podcast team got together to preview the 2017 National League Central. Alex Crisafulli, Eric Roseberry, Rob Mains, Ross Bukouricz, and Brandon Lee went around the horn to give their takes and answer questions about the Cardinals, Reds, Pirates, Brewers, and Cubs.
Note that this episode started recording Tuesday night around 12:30 am ET, and by the end of the episode, the remaining participants were getting a little slap-happy and/or groggy. By 2 am, they had all fulfilled their obligation.
Listen to Rob on episode 8 of the Fadeaway Podcast.
