On this edition of the Daily News Sports Talk Podcast — A.K.A The Popcast — host Daniel Popper tells you why the Sixers’ Joel Embiid must be awarded Rookie of the Years despite him only playing 31 games this season. Then Kenny Ducey (@KennyDucey) of Sports Illustrated and Baseball Prospectus stops by for an extended and wide-ranging MLB preview. Popper and Ducey start out by debating which teams possess the talent to challenge the Cubs and Indians. They also discuss MLB and Rob Manfred’s desire to change the rules and address pace of play. Spoiler alert: They both vehemently disagree with the commissioner’s agenda.
