Kiley welcomes Baseball Prospectus/Grantland writer Ben Lindbergh to the show to talk about his recent experiences as an attendee of MLB's Scout School. Kiley has had some experiences with the MLB Scouting Bureau, has an advanced knowledge of the three-act narrative structure, ran into Ben in Arizona while he was in Scout School and knows Ben hates narratives muddying the waters of baseball analysis. Kiley uses this knowledge and creates a narrative about Ben's experience complete with hot sports takes, conflict, sound effects, music stings and basically ruins Ben's story with Morning Zoo antics.
