Foul Territory A Baseball PodcastFor Episode 12 of Foul Territory, Jed Rigney and Jon Sumple kick off the 2017 season with a recap of why Foul Territory came to a sudden halt last season. Considering the gap between the last show and this one, it’s only fitting¬†to talk about the Cubs’ World Series victory, a little bit of politics and the Super Bowl, before getting to current events and discussing Alex Reyes’ season-ending TJ surgery, Eric Gagne’s improbable comeback, Jorge De La Rosa signing with the D-backs, what a Yolmer is and isn’t, the World Baseball Classic, new rules being explored to speed up the game, and Derek and Hannah Jeter’s upcoming bundle of joy.

A preview of AL West projections is followed by a Presidents Day “Starting Nine” and the tried and true “Extra Innings,” which focuses on non-baseball ramblings like the FT no-politics zone, Boogie Cousins being traded from Sacramento to New Orleans, Burger King’s acquisition of Popeyes, a recap of The Bachelor’s contributions to the demise of society and why Jed thinks Rogue One is going to sweep the Oscars.
