The Athletic’s Levi Weaver joins Ducksnort to explain how Major League Baseball is artificially deflating minor league salaries through political lobbying, and the ways in which Commissioner Rob Manfred justified the behavior when questioned. Plus Greg and Wayland explore how the playoff teams from last year are underachieving, potentially restoring some competitive balance to the 2018 season, and try to comprehend how what Shohei Ohtani is could change baseball forever. With thoughts on Kenley Jansen, Giancarlo Stanton’s swing-and-miss game, Justin Turner, Asdrubal Cabrera and the Mets’ surprising success, Jose Quintana, the division-leading but not fear-inducing Pirates, and more!
