Podcast Du Jour
Nearly every day of the week, Outsports has a new podcast for your enjoyment. Today, our Ken Schultz is back after a break with a brand new 3 Strikes You’re Out podcast. This week, an episode about the White Sox. Which means Ken should be spending all of his time talking about AL MVP Jose Abreu.
But he’s not. In fact, Abreu doesn’t come up until the end.
Why? Tony La Russa, that’s why.
