If you missed the “Hot Stove League Show” Tuesday night on 710 ESPN Seattle, you missed some interesting analysis, a couple of good football stories from a baseball writer, a revelation from Raul Ibanez and one of the best Louisms I have ever heard. Fear not, the podcasts are up. Hour 1 can be heard above and hour 2 can be found here.

ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian talked about the news of the day and what he believes baseball must do to to strengthen its PED policy. He also gave a rundown of where he sees the Mariners after their offseason moves and made a bold prediction about the American League East.

Kurkjian was followed by Raul Ibanez, who is clearly excited to be returning to the Mariners. Raul told a great story about pinch-hitting for A-Rod in the playoffs and also shared some insight on what he believes new hitting coach Dave Hansen can bring to the club.

Former MLB.com writer and current author Jim Street shared stories from his new book, including one about a train trip with John Madden. Former Mariner and new Angels broadcaster Mark Langston gave us a look at the Angels. And finally, Rick Rizzs interviewed Lou Piniella, who is in town for the Hutch Award lunch.

No starting pitcher.
