Today’s featured guest are salary cap expert Joel Corry, former MLB executive Steve Phillips, and co-founder of Concussion Legacy Foundation Dr. Chris Nowinski. The “Other Stuff” segment covers a variety of topics including sponsorship interest by Manscaped, Mitch’s strange Randy Johnson encounters, and a concerning voicemail on Scott’s phone!
