This is another abbreviated episode. We'll return to a full show for episode 30.
Hanley Ramirez is out for at least eight weeks with a torn ligament in his thumb. That's going to hurt the offense, but could improve the defense in the short-term.
We also get off on a tangent about Carl Crawford's health and status for April 1.
Zack Greinke's elbow is still a concern, but he looked good in a minor-league game on Wednesday. I talk about what I heard Curt Schilling say on the March 15 Baseball Tonight podcast.
Finally, what would any podcast be without a Yasiel Puig update. The impressive Cuban is lighting it up in spring training. We still don't think he should break camp with the team, but he's doing about everything he can to make us change our minds.
