On The MLB Trade Deadline, Dallas Cowboys Training Camp and The Presidential Horse Race.
If you’re a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7-FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you’re not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. You’re about to get real familiar with these two just the same through their own channel of this podcast called It’s Just Banter. Wanna hear past episodes?

Well, folks, Your Texas Rangers probably aren’t going to win another game after the mess they just made for themselves at the trade deadline this week.
I’m just kidding, of course. But, really, our feelings on their recent trade activity are a little more mixed. The players they got back are good, for sure. But they paid a steep price that could have wider implications on other moves coming.
We try to walk through all of the angles there.
Then, in the second half of this week’s pod, Jake shares a bone he has to pick with political coverage. Basically, he’s upset with the lack of substantive conversations in the media regarding policy — and, actually, I’m inclined to agree with him on that point.
Also, Jake is in California helping the Ticket cover Cowboys training camp. We talk about that a little here, but I mostly mention it so you’ll understand why his voice sounds so different during this recording.
