Final segment (31:41)

  • Sam and Tyler turn their attentions to the Majors briefly to talk about Jeff Passan's story for Yahoo! in which Passan writes that baseball's rookie class of 2015 has become the greatest ever, according to WAR. The guys discuss how it's not only the usual suspects (Carlos Correa, Kris Bryant, Noah Syndergaard) that have made this class great, but that some unexpected stars (Jung-ho Kang, Matt Duffy, James McCann) have contributed in big ways as well.
