South Side Hit Pen Podcast: Episode 1

Hey now people, the South Side Hit Pen podcast is on the air! 

It’s truly an Episode 0, giving hosts Clinton Cole and Brett Ballantini a little bit of time to explore the full studio space. (Conclusion: More cowbell!)

We also pump up the volume on Yasiel Puig, take a victory lap with Yasmani Grandal, and work the mailbag.

His BABIP is fairly average, I believe, so he’s not chasing a lucky year to maintain a .250… Read more »
