Podcast 17: Yolmer Sánchez, and more Cactus chat


Effervescent engagement editor Ashley Sanders hops on the podcast with Brett Ballantini to talk (natch) the dear, departed Yolmer Sánchez. Also, learn about Ashley’s road to Sox fandom and persistent tryout for a “boys” baseball All-Star team. Finally, we wrap with some Cactus talk, including the amazing February of Yermín Mercedes and Carson Fulmer’s last stand.

I don’t know how many times I need to keep saying this, but hell yes we’re on Apple Podcasts.

Actor (final credit: murdered by Albert Einstein in "Carnage Hall"), musician (Ethnocentric Republicans), and Nerf hoops champion, Wiffleball aficionado and onetime bilingual kindergarten teacher, Brett Ballantini also writes about baseball, basketball and sometimes hockey, publishing at the NBA, MLB, NHL, and for Slam, Hoop, Sporting News, the Athletic, and others. He was CSN Chicago’s Blackhawks beat writer for their first Stanley Cup season of 2009-10, and took over the White Sox beat after that. He currently is the editor-in-chief of South Side Hit Pen and managing editor of SB Nation's South Side Sox. He also wrote a book about Ozzie Guillén but is running out of space, so follow him on Twitter @BrettBallantini and he'll probably tell you even more about himself than you ever wanted to know.
