Another week of baseball has passed us by and, for one player, the rest of this season and part of next will be passing him by as well. Seattle Mariners utility player Tim Beckham has been banned for 80 games for a PED violation. You’ll never believe how it happened.

Plus, the Minnesota Twins are charging hard for the AL Central title but were dealt a big blow as Nelson Cruz will head to the IL in the middle of a fantastic run at the plate. How long is he out and what does this mean for the Twins?

Finally, we break out our old friend “Top 5, Bottom 3” and one of Chris’s teams may surprise you.

All that and a whole lot more this week on the show.
