One of the things about Stacey Gotsulias that caught my attention was her knowledge of the game of baseball. I also admired how unapologetic she was in her criticism of Hall of Fame voters doing things wrong; her passion for the New York Yankees (even as a Braves fan); and I was intrigued by her fandom of Alex Rodriguez. But more than anything else her work, which she does for some of the best baseball websites around, are a joy to read. So much so that Richard Deitsch named one of Stacey’s pieces as one of his Media Circus: Best Journalism of 2016.
This episode Stacey and I talk Hall of Fame voting, women in the front office, why you should reconsider your Alex Rodriguez hate, and a lot more. (Run Time: 50 minutes)
