Can you believe we are already at the point of the 2019 season that it is time to start discussing postseason awards?

On today’s show, the managers for the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox may have found something they agree on. When you hear what it is, though, you might think they’ve both gone crazy. We discuss the possibility of a mercy rule.

Plus, MLB announced this week that players in Minor League Baseball and in Major League Baseball will not be permitted to play in the Venezuela Winter League due to sanctions from the United States and other countries against the South American nation. This will have huge ramifications through the baseball world. Graham and Chris discuss.

Also, the topic of robotic umpires is back but this time sheds the light on a very concerning possibility: are Joe Torre and Rob Manfred on completely different pages when it comes to the implementation of an electronic strike zone?

Finally, the guys lay out who they pick for Manager of the Year.

A jam packed show this week on Out of Left Field.
