This is kind of a combo episode, so be forewarned. We recorded an interview with Emily Waldon, prospect writer for The Athletic, on Thursday, November 10th. Issues prevented it coming out over the weekend, so we added a little news and commentary as an opening segnment. You can skip to our interview with Ms. Waldon at about 30:00 of the podcast. To lead off, co-host Brandon Day flies solo with a quick rundown of MLB awards season, and the Tigers posture toward free agency as the hot stove season gets underway.
