Brad Ziegler returned to Arizona on trade deadline day this season and he joined us for the first time since he was traded. Brad explained to us how he found out that the Marlins has traded him. HINT: it wasn't from his GM or Manager.
Our fifth freak joined us on Thursday, the day after Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr was plunked by Zieger's former squad, The Miami Marlins to lead off the game.

Ziegler's answer might surprise you, essentially saying that he's an old-school guy and that pitchers should pitch inside to set a tone and that when he was the Marlins setting the tone was part of their philosophy.
