Grantland Network Podcast: Jonah Keri

Cole HamelsThe Jonah Keri Podcast returns with its Canadian blend of baseball news and meta-talk. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports and MLB Network stops by to cover the trade deadline. We discuss the Dodgers’ pursuit of pitching; the fates of Zack Greinke, Cole Hamels, and Matt Garza; the surprisingly gun-shy Yankees; the stuck-in-limbo Jays; the what-the-hell-do-we-do-now Pirates, Mets, and Orioles; and a lot more.

The conversation then shifts to the state of the baseball journalism industry, with a focus on breaking-news reporting. How has Twitter changed the landscape? And can we trust what an agent tells us? Finally, Jon weighs in with Hall of Fame thoughts, including Jim Rice, Jack Morris, and Reggie Jackson being colossally wrong on a certain catcher.
