The Payoff Pitch: Rants & Raves & Adam Pohl

This week, I take aim at both Steve Phillips and The Washington Post’s Thomas Boswell, who each had some terrible takes this week. The former’s was about Stevie Coop and his save, the latter’s about rebuilding baseball teams in general, and the Orioles in particular.

Later in the show, I’m joined by the voice of the Bowie Baysox at Prince George’s Stadium, Adam Pohl (@PohlAdam). Adam fills us in on how some of the Baby Birds who are currently playing in Bowie are doing lately. The Baysox have been on a roll since getting off to a rough start, so which players have been driving the push? He also lets us know what changes the new regime has made at the lower levels to try to help pitchers get the most out of their stuff.

Thanks for listening, and stay tuned for The Payoff Pitch Prospect report, coming Thursday!
