Also Bill Cosby, Boardwalk Empire, bears, and food.
This week, Matt and Jason talk about the umpires blowing a home run call not once but twice in Cleveland, how Roy Halladay’s shoulder injuries should affect our views on pitcher contracts, and, as always, the Muzzle of the Week.
All that stuff! And more!
In which Matt and Jason discuss the 2014 free-agent class of starting pitchers, what Aaron Harang and Jose Fernandez say about their teams, and whether we should see 42.
In which Matt and Jason discuss the Vernon Wells trade and Adam Wainwright extension before moving on to how shitty teams ought to apologize to their fans.
Only two topics this week, as we went long on each, but we talked about whether we should be buying the big pitch-framing numbers for players like Jose Molina and looked at one list of over/unders for all 30 teams. This one went a tad long.
No “what we did this week” but there are significant quantities of nipples and alcohol
In which Matt and Jason talk about the new Carlos Gomez contract, whether clubhouse chemistry is worth 24 wins, and why Joe Torre should just go home.
If you stick around to the very end, Jason has a very special surprise for you.
In which Matt and Jason overcome technical issues to pound out a full podcast anyway. We discuss whether bloggers could run baseball teams, how the Yankees will fare given their injury woes, and Carl Crawford’s comments about the horrors of the Boston media.
Also: Ferris wheels, tennis, a new ESPN show, and the WBC.
