These topics are not related. We talked Rick Eckstein, Matt Martin, the blend of coaching and front offices, increased specialization, comparisons to football and basketball, and more. In the second topic, we asked whether the Carlos Ruiz deal was a good deal, whether the concept of the Phillies continuing to attempt to win is a good concept, and who might be responsible.
Not ten minutes after the end of Game 5, Matt and Jason started recording. An hour later, Episode 50 was in the can. Historic!
We check in on the goings-on in the playoffs. Because this is a baseball podcast and the playoffs are happening.
Who’s gonna win it all? Who’s gonna go on a World Gift-Gettin’ Tour next?
RIP Nick Punto
Specifically, how Mike Redmond is a dink.
Also meat pipes, chipped beef, and cat boxes.
Specifically, is there even a race in the NL and would you sign Cabrera to a big deal right now?
