Starting 9 Episode #59 - Whit Merrifield

Barstool Sports presents the Starting 9, featuring Jared Carrabis and Dallas Braden - the baseball podcast everyone wants but no one else will give you. This week's episode features an interview with the breakout star of the Kansas City Royals, Whit Merrifield, who discusses his unique path to the big leagues, his first memories of when he knew he had truly arrived, the lost art of the stolen base and much more. Dallas and Jared also get into the returns of Chris Sale and Josh Donaldson, Sean Manaea's season-ending surgery and Marcus Stroman's lost season to kick things off, before touching on each and every American League team - all 15 - in a new segment called the Hut Seat, where Dallas and Jared answer questions like “will the bullpen prevent the Red Sox from winning the World Series this season?” and “will Alex Bregman end up having the best career of any current Astros position player?” and many more. Dallas and Jared also answer Twitter questions from the #groundscrew!
