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.

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!
