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?
We drink Boulevard’s Double-Wide IPA, talk about A-Rod, Dempster, and David Ortiz, and then move to Atlanta and their place in the NL after the Jason Heyward and Brandon Beachy injuries.
Matt and Jason talk the new replay rules and Charlie Manuel. Also a new experiment: we simultaneously drink a beer that neither of us have tried. The same beer. You’ll figure it out.
Matt wants people to play with, then Jason joins for a discussion of the new Chase Utley contract, why the Phillies do things, and the Jack Clark comments about Albert Pujols using steroids.
In Episode 39, after Matt sweats, he and Jason talk about a Little League-type rule change from a listener email, then the PED situation, then Mike Rizzo’s new contract extension and promotion.
Episode 38 has talk of the Ryan Braun suspension, Matt Garza being traded to the Rangers, and a filthy-mouthed robot.
Matt and Jason go long and hand out all (Manager, Rookie, Cy Young, MVP) their first-“half” awards.
