We’re back with episode No. 2 of The Getting Blanked Show. Parkes, Stoeten and Drew discuss the six-year $72.5 million contract extension that the Cincinnati Reds awarded to Brandon Phillips, a trio of converted relievers finding success in starting roles and a potential early return from injury for Victor Martinez. Our Pepper segment is, admittedly, more like a round of long toss (hey, there’s a new title idea), but we only seek to give you the news!

The guys break down the concepts of sample size in the first instalment of “Stat Learnin’” and we finish up with an excerpt from an interview Drew cut with one Jose Bautista on Tuesday.
