While Kate is away at Spring Training, John and Matthew are joined by Jordan Shusterman of Cespedes Family BBQ and Cut4. Being the Mariner fan of the Cespedes duo, Jordan shares his thoughts on the M’s upcoming season, while also mixing in his trademark silliness, and gives us news and notes from around the league.
