Circuit Clouts

Episode 32 - 1985 Season Preview

In a super-sized double-decker season preview edition, the guys count down the league's 16 teams. Will Detroit three-peat? Will Washington catch St. Louis in the Gulf Division? And will Montreal overtake the Sox in the Atlantic and book a playoff return three years after their World Series triumph? Prefer two parts: pause it halfway and finish it later!
