The Catbird Speaks 9.8.14 - Now, with Paul Boyé!

It's been far too long since the last The Catbird Seat podcast. That prolonged absence allowed us to blow out the budget for this one, and bring in guest Paul Boyé to join Nick Schaefer in New York. Boyé's Baseball Twitter fame is staked on his work at Philadelphia Phillies blog Crashburn Alley, Sports on Earth and The Classical. His particular expertise on the Phillies allowed us to talk about the difficult process of building a winner after a once-celebrated core has passed their prime. You can follow Paul on Twitter at @paul_boye, since apparently you cannot put in accent marks in Twitter handles.

Also discussed: Carlos Rodon, White Sox free agency, the magic of Jose Abreu, filling left field with a warm body, Tyler Flowers, eh?, and of course, Dayan Viciedo.
