Negotiations have commenced, and I discussed the ins, the outs, the what-have-yous of the talks between MLB owners and the players union, as we take some baby steps down the road of having actual Cincinnati Reds baseball in 2020.

We also bring you a couple of fun interviews with current Reds while they were still babies. When they were still minor leaguers, Tucker Barnhart (almost a decade ago at this point!) and Jesse Winker joined RNR (and Bill Lack) to talk about their hopes and dreams. It’s an interesting flashback, given what we know now about these players’ careers, and we think you’ll enjoy it.
