Like waiting for a racehorse to come in, the guys finally were able to reflect and dissect the Rule 5 (yes, 5 not V, that is not correct in the AP style of things) draft which took place to wrap up the 2012 Baseball Winter Meetings from Nashville, Tenn. With the “Twitter Meetings” on the brain of most, the gang breaks down who did and did not get nabbed in the Rule 5 as well as catches up with the man who has the pulse of the MiLB scene in MLB.com’s Ben Hill of Ben’s Biz Blog. The guys live vicariously through Ben’s retelling of the comings and goings of this year’s meetings at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in The Music City and also gets the scoop on some of the newest items to hit the aisles at the always popular Trade Show.Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:
