Yes, Marc Normandin returns (you may all exhale now) to the OTM Podcast just in time before Matt Kory rode the whole thing off the rails, into the gutter, and off a cliff all while on fire.
Anyway, in this the 50th OTM podcast (dedication!) the boys talk about the Boston Red Sox. Shocking, I know. Specifically they ("We?" We'll go with "we.") discuss what the Red Sox have in their immediate and semi-long term future. Then we about the up-coming schedule and how it may benefit the Red Sox
Then we discuss changes that are coming to the beleaguered bullpen in the form of the return of injured players Rich Hill and (longer down the road) Andrew Bailey, and potential minor league call-up Alex Wilson. The new-ish role of closer-ish reliever Alfredo Aceves is also a point of conversation, as is the potential return of Mark Melancon who was banished to Triple A for ineffective pitching. All in all, it's a crazy-informative and totally-worthy-of-being-the-50th-episode 50th episode of the Over The Monster Podcast!!
