In this week's episode, Andrew, Craig and Rex discuss Colorado's sudden decision to bolt to the Big 12, some early trade deadline musings, Bartolo Colon's retirement announcement almost 5 years since his last Major League appearance and bands we would like to see come out of retirement.

Errata: The New York Yankees were 14 games behind the Boston Red Sox on July 17, 1978, but rallied to win the division in a one-game playoff. Red Sox pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee discussed that season in our Episode 45A - Shavermetrics w/ Scott Russell and Bill "Spaceman" Lee (Radio Edit).  Allen Collins, not Albert Collins, played guitar for Lynyrd Skynyrd. Following Gary Rossington's death, Artimus Pyle is the only surviving band member from before the plane crash.
