Friday podcast: Tony La Russa

Special guest Tony La Russa joined Mark Simon and me for Friday’s Baseball Today podcast, which is packed with good information not only about the pending All-Star game but also Thursday’s incredible night of pitching.

1. La Russa will be managing the NL All-Stars, and he told us some stories and shed light on how his “retirement” has been going and what he likes about baseball this season.

2. Major prospect Trevor Bauer debuted Thursday to mixed results, but quite a few others dominated on the mound, including Bauer’s next scheduled foe.

3. Not only did the Yankees lose, but a pitcher’s wife is not pleased with how it happened!

4. Mark shares with us the top defensive players for the month of June, including a rookie shortstop that has made a huge difference!

5. Our weekend preview focuses on multiple series to watch, including the struggling Rays and Dodgers facing some tough pitching.

So please download and listen to Friday’s memorable Baseball Today podcast and find out what La Russa believes is the best playoff pitch to ever be thrown!
