Tim Leiper joins Arden, Ben and Shi Davidi to tell some stories from his five years as Blue Jays first base coach and describe life behind the scenes of a big-league coaching staff.

"You asked me how the off season was. It's kind of relaxing now because you realize you don't stop. Because you wake up in the morning you're looking at Baseball Prospectus, you're reading the other teams beat writers, you're reading articles. You are looking for anything. You know? You are looking for any type of advantage. How guys are doing? Are they hot? You're studying. I mean, we're baseball rats. So we study everything." - Tim Leiper
