Kiley welcomes Baseball Prospectus editor Ben Lindbergh and plays a post-game interview he had last spring with Rockies first round pick OF David Dahl. After Kiley sets the tone by blindsiding Ben with a pair of gotcha! questions, they talk Mark Appel's financial future, selling out to Deadspin, their physical resemblance, rap names, headshot physics, career karma, how to work sources, shoehorning Carlos Marmol jokes into conversation and how their subsconsciouses can't scout for crap. Kiley interviewed Dahl after his first game back from a hip injury late in his senior season at Oak Mountain HS in Birmingham, AL before becoming the 10th overall pick by the Rockies in the 2012 MLB Draft.
