Seiya Suzuki, Dog Days, & MLB in 2030

Noah & Brandon discuss Seiya Suzuki and the future of MLB.


Short Hops & Tall Tales


Brandon and Noah are back and baseball is right around the corner! They kick off the episode learning all they can about the newest baseball star to make the jump from Japan to the U.S., the Cubs’ newest outfielder, Seiya Suzuki! Then, they look for meaning in the oft-used term “the dog days of summer,” before rounding things out with a ten year glimpse into the future of Major League Baseball (at least one CBA from now).
