MLBThe TK Show

    The Return of Billy Beane! (Oakland A’s Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations) (podcast)

    Billy Beane knows a thing or two about putting together a solid team.


    Tim Kawakami has his first return guest on this iteration of the TK Show in the form of Mr. Moneyball himself, Billy Beane. Billy opens up on Sean Manaea’s surgery, the thought process of starting relievers/bringing in starters later than usual and the reported locker room frustration at this unconventional take on pitching. Beans also reflects on this season’s success so far and compares the Oakland Raiders’ trade of Khalil Mack to him trading Josh Donaldson many moons ago.
