After being left off of the last podcast, B_Don returns for this post Opening Day podcast with Ditka of Razzball, Grey Albright. We let Donkey Teeth jump in occasionally to make dick jokes, ask some questions, and provide commentary.

Yes, we say we are going to wrap up and talk for 20 more minutes.Start with some nonsense, finish with some division and World Series prediction, but in the middle there’s some solid information about opening day and some players that ended up on our teams or that we are looking at on the wire.

We never know if the show is actually recording or if anyone is listening, but it’s always fun talking shop with the boss. We get to some mutual love on German Marquez ($13, really?), Adalberto Mondesi, and Fernando Tatis Jr. We discuss some Opening Day surprises and busts with the likes of Chris Sale, Zack Greinke, Eric Lauer, Luis Castillo, Enrique Hernandez, and more.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

The LABR mixed-league draft has taken place in mid-February since its inception a couple of years ago and I have been lucky enough to be a part of it. Steve Gardner at USAToday.com is a gracious host, it’s a good group of people and competitors (even better with the addition of Dr. Roto and Scott Pianowski of Yahoo) and the timing of the draft is a great incentive to get my preseason projections, values and research done about the same time Grey finishes his marathon of player ranking posts.

Every preseason, I do things a little differently. I would like to say I am inspired by Einstein but his brilliance does not excuse his mediocre bagels. Yes, it’s not like I live in a bagel mecca nirvana heaven Garden of Eden in Austin, TX (Wholy Bagel excluded) but the theory of relativity does not extend to bagels IMO.
