On today’s podcast, Heath and Ghoji discuss Hall of Fame inductees (1:30) and look ahead to next year’s ballot. Edgar Martinez, Mariano Rivera, and Roy Halladay look promising.

Ghoji’s Brewers take over the show at the 11:00 mark. All the Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain were discussed. Grin and bear with the slight audio issues off-and-on from minute 11 to minute 14...thanks in advance, fam. Find out where Heath thinks Ryan Braun should play—hint, it’s not second and it’s not the outfield...

Note: At one point Heath said the Brewers traded for Cain. This is untrue. They paid him. They paid that man his money.

We discussed breakout players next (30:00). That included a pitcher Heath has never heard of before today. Crazy.

Lastly, we teased catcher week (37:00) here at Fake Teams and offered up our picks for the catcher we’d most like to hang out with. We also picked the catcher we would most like to build a MLB franchise around, and the guy neither of us picked may surprise you. In the spirit of that final question, give us your answer in the poll below!

I can’t wait to see how many Sanchez votes there are. We shall see, Yankees fans. We shall see.
