The manager on the field



If every coach got thrown out of a game, who would you hand the lineup card to? In today's episode, JJ Bailey talks to former MLB catcher and Double-A Springfield manager Dann Bilardello about the leader behind the plate. The two are joined by minor league beat writer Mike Bailey and the conversation breaks down what it takes to make it as a catcher, why Yadier Molina is so good and who may be coming up behind him in the organization. The chat also covers Dann's managing philosophy and how the minors have changed since he went through them. Throw on some headphones and enjoy!
