This week’s Melvin Mora Franchise Report recalls its namesake’s remarkable ten year tenure (eh?) in Baltimore, and also offers an interesting perspective on the O’s modern-day situation at third base. We also, like most baseball podcasts, talk geopolitical issues, specifically those raised by Jeff Passan’s recent article about MLB’s Cuba problem.

PLUS: Our friend Dana, one of the three Mets fans whose existence we’ve been able to confirm, is moving to LA. We offer her some wise words for her journey (or at least some words, anyway). We also crack open the Seventh Inning Sketch Time Vault for a bit from several years ago that has proven to be remarkably not prescient.
