We welcome our very first guest, Sam Miller, so that Sam and Jason can play the Baseball Prospectus Annual Drinking Game (albeit without drinking). Matt graciously plays host and arbiter. Who will win this epic showdown?
We talk Eric Hosmer’s new contract, the Royals, the AL Central, and Cole Hamels.
We preview the NL West and draft our favorite minor league free agents.
After seven months off, we’re back with a look at what the hell we did for the last seven months, as well as what the Red Sox and A’s did during that time. We also had some live listeners. Neat?
We’ll be back!
Josh Byrnes got fired, David Price could get fired, and a new brewery is now pouring in Jason’s neighborhood.
RIP Tony Gwynn and Bob Welch. Sorry about your elbow, Matt Wieters. Sorry you’re not good pitchers anymore, Justin Verlander and Trevor Cahill. Sorry you have no idea what a plate appearance is, Ruben Amaro.
Matt and Jason talk bad outfields, revising history, and beanball wars. It’s long.
It’s a bandwagon and we had to jump on it. But we also ranked the six first-place teams by likelihood of still being in first place come end of season and marveled at Tim Hudson.
There were also jokes.
It’s a new episode, the first in months, and hopefully the first of many. Topics are plentiful.
