    Episode 245 - History of Japanese Baseball - Blair Williams

    Episode 245 - History of Japanese Baseball - Blair Williams

    Russell talked with @Razzball and @PitcherList writer @EverywhereBlair about the history of baseball in Japan.

    They covered the origins of NPB, Shohei, the Olympics and that some of what you might know and maybe read recently about Japanese baseball and players is likely wrong.

    Episode 244 - Russell's Bunsen Burner

    Episode 244 - Russell's Bunsen Burner

    Darius and Russell are joined by a mystery man who has no place on a baseball podcast. It's Tom Pringle.

    They talk about the sticky baseballs, Bobby Bonilla, Eric Hosmer, the San Francisco Giants, the All-Star Game and what Russell's stat lab might look like.

    You can tell Tom is back, can't you?

    (Tom swears once, just sh*t...not really explicit is it?)

    Episode 243 - When I Wake Up

    John, Rob and Ben are in our rotation this week.

    Regrettably they are back on the topic of rubbing balls.

    In happier news they have plenty to say about the history making Diamondbacks, the mega fun Toronto Blue Jays, lovely lil Frankie Lindor, Mr Magic Joey Votto, plus a factoid that may put you off Jacob deGrom for life.

Insomnia inducingly brilliant

On nights when the Astros aren’t playing, I stick these guys on when I’m going to sleep. I find myself engaged and laughing and before I know it I’m busy not sleeping and considering being off work the next day. A rare but no less brilliant British take on baseball. Keep it up guys!

Brits do baseball....

Yes that’s right, these guys bring knowledge and humour together in such perfection that has not been seen since Wade Miley last pitched for the Brewers! If you are a British Baseball fan this is a must listen!
