Tampa Bay Times beat writer Marc Topkin, the busiest man in baseball joins the Best Podcast in Baseball, live from the 2020 World Series at Globe Life Field, it only sounds like we're shouting at you from Texas. Fair warning: Due to technical difficulties during the recording of this episode of the BPIB, the audio files were lost and the backups garbled or corrupted, so what follows is the salvaged audio pieced back together. As a result, the interview is edited for clarity, and the spots where the audio quality varies have been minimized, but not all of them completely erased because of the quality of Topkin's answers. My apologies for the trouble, but his thoughts and explanations were good enough to try and bring you as much of the recording as possible, even if it sounds like we used two tin cans and a shoestring. Topkin joins Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold to discuss the Randy Arozarena Experience, whether that trade will pinch the Rays at some point, and how the Rays have thrived with creative bullpen use and roster creation. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design, is a production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,, and Derrick Goold.
