The Triangle Podcast: Jonah Keri, Jayson Stark, and Ben Gibbard

JohnsonWe’ve officially entered the crazy times leading up to baseball’s trade deadline. Luckily,’s Jayson Stark is on the case. He and Jonah Keri break down the big moves of the past 24 hours, including Cole Hamels’s new mega-contract with the Phillies, Hanley Ramirez’s trade to the Dodgers, and the Pirates(!) making a go-for-it move in landing Wandy Rodriguez. Also discussed: the Rangers-Angels arms race, the Yankees’ injury woes, and the status of Zack Greinke, James Shields, Matt Garza, Chase Headley, and other fine, baseball-playing blokes.

But wait, there’s more! With Ichiro off to the Yankees, we called Death Cab for Cutie front man, die-hard Mariners fan, and friend of the podcast Ben Gibbard to get his take on the big send-off and search for a silver lining in Seattle.
