The 8:00 AM hour begins with the one and only Doug Waechter living in the studio! The show finally gives Doug a Goon Squad beer, and he says he's excited to try out the drink. Then the discussion first begins by talking about the pitch clock violation, and that you need to focus on your delivery. Then Doug explains how much of a beast Pete Fairbanks is, and how intense he is when he is on the mound. After that, the discussion went to Doug saying that Kevin Kiermaier's presence would be missed for sure. Then the guys play a commercial for both Joey Votto and Bryan Cranston. The next segment includes a discussion about what type of player Aaron Jacobson was, and how far he could have gone. Then Doug talks about how hard it is to project what a player is going to do in the regular season after what they have shown in spring training. After that, Doug explains how the Rays need to keep Wander Franco for the whole season, and more!
