The Can of Corn – Show 18

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Greetings from the podcastsrs, with a rare appearance of the Thursday show! With vacation looming for Michael, we had to put together a show on a short week, but with teams acquiring players for nothing and rookies getting headlines everywhere, we had no problems at all. Oh yeah, and did you see Kevin Youkilis “tackle” the Tigers’ Rick Porcello? As with every week in the season, it doesn’t really matter what day we record, there will always be a myriad of topics to talk about in addition to all of our injury news/updates, hot/cold hitters and pitchers and Cafe Talk, so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
