Saturday afternoon Mike Watts and I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Sharon Robinson, an author, education consultant to MLB, and daughter of Jackie Robinson. After seeing the film seven times she says, Sharon discusses the new film "42," her own memories of her father, and the current state of baseball. With a few books to her name, and a new biography out about her father, Sharon Robinson says she is looking forward to April 15th and is eternally proud that #42 continues to mean something today.

Saturday during One on One, Amit and I had the distinct opportunity to speak with Yahoo Sports National Baseball writer Jeff Passan about the Winter Meetings that took place last week. We talked about the logistics of the what goes on in the hotel complex, inquired about the outfield market, and got the latest word on the Mets and Yankees. (This was taped just before Zack Greinke signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers).
