[Editor's Note: The podcast sound seems to break up constantly for the first few minutes, but we promise, it stabilizes after that. So, in a pinch, just fast-forward a few minutes into it and enjoy! -Marc]

The season has begun! I don't know if I've used that intro already for one of the podcasts because I'm not looking it up and we haven't podcasted in a while. This was kind of an impromptu podcast anyway. "Hey, we should podcast." "Okay. How about now." "Uh, okay." And so it was.

This podcast covers topics in multiple, from the start of the Red Sox starting rotation, to the catching situation, to the new guys in the lineup, to Marc's slavish insistence on being right all the time. I mean, come on, make a darn mistake already! We, and by "we" I mean Matt Kory and Marc Normandin, looked at the Sox early success in the starting rotation, tried not to say the words "Clay" and "Buchholz" too much for different but equally compelling reasons, wondered if Ryan Hanigan and Sandy Leon can offer enough in the catching department for an entire season, and there were probably other things we talked about to, some of them even Red Sox related!

If you like the podcast, you can go to iTunes, search for "OTM Podcast" and then give us all the stars because we like stars, they're pretty. You can also tell us what you like or don't like (I'm less interested in honest criticism than ego stroking, but whatever) at iTunes or in the comments. Either way, thanks for listening.
