Foul Territory A Baseball PodcastOn episode 13 of Foul Territory: A Baseball Podcast, Jed Rigney and Jon Sumple talk spring training baseball, brought to you by our sponsor “Spring Training Baseball.” We also dive into the Yankees arbitration spat between Randy Levine and Dellin Betances, discuss the retirement of four umpires that nobody knows unless you know them for the wrong reasons, the celebrity of Tim Tebow and his spring training debut, former NFL Chiefs player Sanders Commings signing with the Braves (and why he and Ryan Goins should have a podcast called “Commings & Goins”), the Cubs announcing Kyle Schwarber as their lead-off hitter, and Facebook’s streaming of MLB games.

Jed shares his “Starting Nine” players with movie star names in honor of the Oscars followed by an NL West Preview, complete with banter about teams in the NL West. As usual, this week’s episode ends with “Extra Innings,” a look outside the world of baseball, featuring discussions on the Daytona 500 and the appeal of pileups, Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles coming to an NFL team near you, Oscars big fail, Rapper Fat Joe losing 100 pounds and whether he’ll change his name to Hungry Joe, and, finally, magician Daryl Easton being found dead at Hollywood’s Magic Castle.
