He had plenty of tales to tell from the 20-year history of the game.
In the second segment, Grisham was joined by Jardine and OOTP Community Lead T.J. Lauerman. The three talked about their plans for their upcoming Perfect Team seasons and suggestions for how not to lose 100 games with the 2003 Tigers. They also answered listener questions.
