Meanwhile, the latest episode of the OOTP Now podcast featured host Rich Grisham discussing OOTP 20’s official 2019 MLB season predictions, which were featured by MLB Network. If you saw MLB Network’s reveal, you’ll still want to listen to this episode, since Grisham took a deeper dive into the predictions, including comparisons between some major free agents and current rookies.
