Originally written on Baseball Prospectus  |  Last updated 11/18/14

Not much going on in the world of baseball as teams gear up for spring training, so we read plenty of our listeners fantastic emails, and some not so fantastic, as clearly, some of you still have hangups about sandals and men that wear earrings. Then we do some prospect talk and follow that up with our special guest Dirk Hayhurst, one of the most refreshingly honest players you will ever hear from, and we highly recommend his new book, Out Of My League. Then it's the goofy stuff, including a talk about Real Genius and how it's fair game to write about on a baseball site. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.
