Description

Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back with a bag of post deadline related things. They start with a discussion of the draft in light of Kumar Rocker's unfair treatment by the Mets, before wondering if abolishing the draft would actually create as much interest among fans as it would fairness among players. After that, they move towards cleaning up some of the big trades that went down around the deadline.
