Another week, another discussion of the hot stove at The Shift. Neil, Stu, and Bryan are discussing the big trade from the weekend: Jeff Samardzija heading to Oakland with Jason Hammel for Addison Russell! Also, the team desperately tries to figure out how the return for fan-favorite Brandon McCarthy was so uninspiring.
Later in the show, the guys talk about some of the season's underperformers, like Torii Hunter, Chris Carter, and Sergio Romo. It's fun!*

We'll have more information in the coming days about how to access the podcast through iTunes, but for now you can check it out through the embedded player or at this link (where you can download it).
We've done it! The Shift is FINALLY on iTunes!
