There are times when it seems the Universe is against you, when the very space you inhabit turns its energy towards thwarting your efforts. That could apply to both the Red Sox 2012 season and the 59th Over The Monster Podcast. Fortunately we were staffed for the occasion. I had several felt hammers with which to beat my computer with without causing any serious damage, but between Skype and the occasional computer snafu, we had our hands full.

Still, in the end we came out the other side with a rather nice podcast if I do say so myself. Steven, Marc and I discussed the Yankees, Ichiro, and then had a spirited conversation about Carl Crawford and his contract. There's much more but I don't want to spoil it. So check out and enjoy the 59th Over The Monster Podcast!

Thanks as always to Steven Goldman for rolling with the punches. Thanks also to Kahoots, the official band of the OTM Podcast, and of course thanks to you for listening.
