Drew and baseball analytics writer for The Athletic, Eno Sarris, have a substantive conversation about...substances...on MLB's new baseballs (5:00). Eno discerns new and existing substances used on balls and how they may influence the league's regulations. New substances are, ironically, coating new baseballs (16:00). How is the Major League's newest stitched marble impacting today's game? In what way can the league alter the ball to possibly engage more casual fans? Eno spits straight facts (depending on who you ask) about Vlad Jr., Bo, and Steven Matz (23:30). Plus, Eno talks about being away from ballparks and the latest beers to capture his attention and taste buds (33:00).
