Alexi Lalas: "For me, diving is a skill. It's a tool." Dale disagrees strongly and brings up a great, debate: Drawing a flag for pass interference, NFL holding, flopping on a charge, trapping a baseball, swipe tags, framing a pitch. The guys (and the callers) try to identify cheating vs trying.

Dale opens the hour pointing out how well Jon Lester has pitched in his own division. The conversation turns to the reported offer of 4 years, 70 million, and whether that was insulting, or just responsible negotiating. Which pitchers in MLB have contracts that should, ultimately, be used as a barometer for a Lester deal?
Mookie Betts has been called up as a 21 year old. Like Bradley Jr, his first game was at Yankee Stadium. Dale, Michael and Buck talk about how young this team got, how fast it happened, and how their introductions to the MLB compare.
