Mariners' lightning-fast outfield prospect Ian Miller joins Kate and co-host Eric Sanford to talk about the joys and trials of life in the minor leagues. Miller offers a dugout-level view on spring training and what he thinks makes big leaguers stand apart, a discussion of the swing changes that have led to him seeing a tremendous jump in his numbers this year, and explains the shift in organizational philosophies post-Dipoto-regime from a player's point of view. Other topics covered: imaginary girlfriends, the irresistible allure of Chick-Fil-A breakfasts, and "which guy are you in the fight?"
Afterwards, we take Twitter questions and Eric’s baby presages the Mariners’ later disastrous, injury-wracked game against the Rockies by fussing a lot. BABIES ALWAYS KNOW.
Music: "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin, "Space Oddity" by David Bowie (both Ian's choices); "Run On" by Moby
