Technical Note: At the beginning of the season I will be making a minor change to the podcast feed. If you've been with the podcast since before May 2012 you're fine. If you signed up between May 2012 and November 2012 you could be effected by this change. If you subscribed through the RSS feed during that time you can resubscribe to the RSS feed and you shouldn't see an interruption.

Next Scheduled Podcast Recording: Live - March 17, 2013. I will be in Spring Training next weekend so we will not be doing the podcast recording live.
