On this week’s podcast ,the Cleveland Indians have extended manager Terry Francona through the 2022 season. Will the Indians’ window stay open that long?

Plus, the Atlanta Braves spend money to save money as they sign 2018 Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna Jr. to a 8 year/$100M contract. Should Atlanta have waited or was this early extension a sign of changing time in baseball?

Also, the Toronto Blue Jays traded CF Kevin Pillar to the San Francisco Giants. Will this move wake upPillar’s hibernating bat or is his MLB service winding down with his rookie contract?

Finally, we lay out our first Top 5/Bottom 3 teams of the 2019 season. Where does your team rank?

All that and more this week on Out of Left Field presented by thegruelingtruth.net and sponsored by mybookie.ag.
