I know nothing about this woman's story.  Y'alls interest intrigued me, so I looked her up and see she's a scam artist, and her father was at Enron.  Are these related and addressed in the podcast?  Seems like a fascinating coincidence.

Yes her background is covered.

Devo again with 1 1/3 scoreless today. No hits, 1 walk.

He had complete control of his changeup today. Used it as his out pitch (as he normally does) but his fastball was spotted well and setup that nasty changeup to get his outs. Nothing really hit hard off of him that I saw except hard hit ground ball right at the shortstop. Everything else was baffling the hitters.

LHP Parker Mushinski
The Red Raider ex had shaky control while pitching in Lubbock and that has continued into the pros. This season for QC the 22-year old out of the Metroplex had a 11.9% BB rate, one of the highest of any starter (min: 80 IP) in the system. But there were significant positives as well--a BAA of just .189 and a K rate topping 30%. Given his wildness issues, org brass may have realized his future was not as a starter and on Aug 3 he was moved to the River Bandits bullpen. Alternatively, the move was made to simply limit his innings for the year. Whichever the reason, the results were pretty slick: 14.1 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 4 BB, 28 K. He also ended the regular season not having given up an ER over his last 21.1 innings. Low 90s FB (T94) and above avg curve was the scouting report from 2017. They've got him listed at 6'0" 225 lbs. A Jim Stevenson signee.

After watching and talking with JBB, Mushinski added a slider last season to what he says is a FB/cutter repertoire.

So a vote for the podcast, a vote for the book and I'll toss in a vote for the doc.

Rangers sign Hunter Pence to a minor league deal with an invite to major league camp.

Apparently he's been told he's made the OD roster.
