Albert Pujols deserved better from Angels, signs with Dodgers
Back from Texas, Jack has a lot to recap and share his thoughts on from the world of Major League Baseball!
After being released by the Angels, Albert Pujols has signed with the Dodgers, with the Angels paying him the remaining $30 million on his contract. Jack shares why he believes Pujols' retirement tour should be receiving the same amount of attention that Derek Jeter's did in 2015. He also discusses the impact Pujols will have on the Dodgers and why he believes waiving Pujols was a blunder on the part of the Angels as the Angels continue to slide, who are now in last place in the AL West (9:35 - 21:30). The best hitter of his generation should have been treated better.
He then catches you up on the latest news from the past week, including Corey Seager hitting the DL, Mike Soroka staying on the shelf for exploratory surgery, Huascar Ynoa establishing himself as an Ohtani-like pitcher that can rake, Jarred Kelenic making his MLB debut, which teams are currently playing the best baseball, a look at the weekend's scores, series, and news (26:20 - 44:15), explaining Major League Baseball's new TV contract with ESPN (44:15 - END), and much, much more!
