On a somber episode of THE Joshua Kusnick Experience, Josh and Ryan briefly discuss the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Josh lives in this community and knows people who work at the school, so he provides a unique perspective to the tragic event. In addition, we briefly discuss the current “gun issue” in America, the impressive young men and women at Stoneman Douglas HS and commit to help those affected in some fashion.
We appreciate you listening and apologize for the lack of baseball talk.

Welcome to the 25th Episode of THE Joshua Kusnick Experience!
This week our conversation begins with Josh talking about his contention Seth Lugo would not be the worst outfielder in Mets’ big league camp, getting into it with an autograph dealer and his reaction to seeing his name on the front page of the USA Today. Next Josh describes the bizarre and somewhat surreal experience he had attending the MLBPA Free Agent Camp in Bradenton this week. Finally we discuss the state of free agency now that Eric Hosmer and J.D. Martinez have signed, the effect the rebuilding teams in Florida have had on the market and the new pace-of-play initiatives.
Thanks to Josh as always for his candor and to you for listening – Please follow the show on Twitter @JoshKusnickPod and leave suggestions for show topics in the comment’s section below!
Back for Round 2, THE Joshua Kusnick Experience Episode #24 continues on the theme of last week’s episode on Collusion, Labor & The Lack of Free Agent Activity.
Josh begins our conversation by describing his recent tweet that went viral, his thoughts on fans acting pro-owner rather than pro-player and the coincidental end of the CBA in 2021 and corresponding end of Donald Trump’s Presidency in late 2020. Next Josh describes his recent appearance on MLB Network Radio with Jim Bowden & Jim Duquette, the combative nature of the interview and passive-aggressively arguing with “Ralph”. Finally, I ask Josh about how Yu Darvish’s contract may, or may not, bolster the stagnant free agent market, along with the ramifications of MLBPA Spring Training occurring for unsigned players.
