Podcast Du Jour
Nearly every day of the week, Outsports has a new podcast for your enjoyment. This afternoon, our Ken Schultz returns with a new episode of 3 Strikes You’re Out! Ken says, “I love Clayton Kershaw. He’s the best pitcher of this generation and a pure joy to watch. But... it’s October. Which means that Kershaw is distressingly... ordinary. On this episode, Sara Sanchez joins me to ponder that if an entire month could be Kryptonite, October is just that for the three-time Cy Young winner.” Listen here:
