Ear on Baseball podcast, Episode 11

Jack HannahanBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The first week of the season is in the books and C. Trent Rosecrans and Matt Snyder discuss the early season surprises, both good (Pirates, Royals) and bad (Red Sox, Rays), all the while keeping in mind the sample size is small and there are plenty of games left.

We're also joined by Cleveland Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan, who signed with Cleveland as a non-roster free agent this offseason and would up as the team's opening day third baseman.

Hannahan talks about his expectations going into camp, making the Indians, his new team and his daily routine as a baseball player. Hannahan, 31, played high school baseball at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota, the alma mater of Paul Molitor and Joe Mauer. Hannahan played on the same baseball team as Mauer's older brother before he went on to the University of Minnesota where he was an All-American.

Hannahan debuted with the Tigers in 2006 and has also played with the A's and Mariners, before spending 2010 in the minors for both the Mariners and Red Sox.
