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.
