S2E1: MLB Has Free Agency Problem | MadBum’s Beef with the Opener

In this episode, something is amiss in MLB. How do you fix it? Then, Manny and L.A. break down San Francisco Giants SP MadBum's recent comments regarding the Opener.

In the season two premiere of the Welcome to THE SHOW podcast, Manny and L.A. try to figure out what's happening in MLB. More than 100 free agents remain unsigned, among them Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, and Kyler Murray just chose to enter the NFL draft over fulfilling his commitment with the Oakland Athletics.

Are teams hurting themselves in the long run by not forking over the money?

Also, It was reported that Madison Bumgarner (aka "MadBum") texted Bruce Bochy during the winter meetings his displeasure with Farhan Zaidi’s comments about the opener. “If you use an opener in my game, I’m walking out of the ballpark,” he’s reported to have said.

Is the opener changing MLB too much at this point?
