With the general election dominating most of the week, Marc took a break from offseason speculation and chatted with Sara Sanchez about her anxieties around the election, voter suppression, politics in sports, and how this year will (or will not) change how MLB engages the discourse (Disclaimer: The conversation was recorded on Friday prior to Joe Biden being announced as the winner of the presidential election)

Sara is a contributing writer at SB Nation’s official Chicago Cubs site Bleed Cubbie Blue. She has also previously contributed to Baseball Prospectus and wrote an essay earlier this week on the voting anxiety she experienced this year on Medium. Make sure to follow her on Twitter @BCB_Sara.
