Welcome to the third episode of the Call to the Pen flagship podcast! New episodes Monday and Wednesday.

In today’s episode, host and Call to the Pen contributor Jonathan Platek discusses the possibility of a Mike Trout MVP candidacy. He also discusses an article from Call to the Pen contributor David Hill about the the Pirates Jung Ho Kang perhaps never being allowed back into the United States, and how that paints a bleak future for the Bucs.


There is also a Judge’s Chamber on tap, a segment on loan from the K&P Show, a segment in which Aaron Judge’s recent feats of hitting are on display and discussed.

Jon also discusses the absolute stupidity of Jung Ho Kang’s 3rd DUI, which he received in Korea in the off-season, currently preventing him from entering the United States. Jon also discusses the silliness of painting these kinds of problems—including the events like the Jose Fernandez death—as somehow “sad” or “tragic” for the player, and not their victims or potential victims.
