Also known as the one in which I try to convince Mazz without any evidence whatsoever that Adrian Gonzalez's power outage is similar to what Fred Lynn went through from 1979 (39 homers, league-leader in batting, on-base percentage and slugging, 1.059 OPS), to '80 (12 homers, .862 OPS).

Actually, those '80 Lynn numbers would sound good for Gonzo and his .718 OPS right now. Pretty sure the Home Run Derby invite isn't coming this year.

Also in this episode, we talk about the "toxic'' clubhouse, which players should be untouchable in trade talks, the good and bad of Bobby V., and lots of other stuff. Kindly give it a listen.
