Nathan Bishop is back by popular demand*, joining the podcast as we discuss the Michael Morse-John Jaso trade (duh), our current view of GM Jack Zduriencik, what Morse and Kendrys Morales' performances could mean for the Mariners' future free agent pursuits, whether Michael Bourn should be viewed as an option for the Mariners, Michael Saunders' development, Edgar Martinez's Hall of Fame chances, Giancarlo Stanton, and FanFest, as well as a number of other tasty digressions.
