How are we already on our third podcast of the season? Crazy. We decide to take some time to talk about preseason and contracts, but if you don’t care about that, jump about ten minutes in, where we start making fun of mono instead. That’s right — poor Timo Meier has mononucleosis, ending his bid for an opening day roster spot (or, really, probably any shot at one before Christmas). So we talk about who benefits from Meier’s misfortune and other preseason goings-on. Also, about whether we’ll learn in 4 days that Marleau also has mono.
