    Episode 271: Trade Deadline Catchup and Expanding Free Agency

    Episode 271: Trade Deadline Catchup and Expanding Free Agency

    Mike, Jon, and Samuel are back with a bag of post deadline related things. They start with a discussion of the draft in light of Kumar Rocker's unfair treatment by the Mets, before wondering if abolishing the draft would actually create as much interest among fans as it would fairness among players. After that, they move towards cleaning up some of the big trades that went down around the deadline.

    Episode 270: Trade Deadline 2021 (Sorta) AKA The One About Joey Gallo

    Episode 270: Trade Deadline 2021 (Sorta) AKA The One About Joey Gallo

    The whole crew is back this week, and what a big week to be back. With just under 48 hours until the deadline at recording time Mike, Jon, and Samuel discuss what's happened so far. That mainly starts with Samuel sadboi'ing over the Joey Gallo trade that broke earlier in the day, which derails the show for a good fifteen minutes. The wheels get back on though, with more trade analysis including a big breakdown on Starling Marte for Jesus Luzardo. Enjoy this before the GMs get too bloodthirsty and blow the whole league up!

Look, I’m a big fan of the pod and even gave a 5 star before this comment; can we please leave race and likely politics out of these pods please? I get that our current environment has such topics on the front of our mind and the tip of the tongue but please leave it out of this outlet. We all have our political views; please leave it out of the pod. That said, minus that, love the pod and you guys do great work. Thanks

Intellectually Challenged Podcast

Classic example of good writers lacking intellect; the conversation is substandard and every podcast seems to devolve into political moaning or other ignorant, random banter usually around the Texas Rangers & Phillies. George Bissell leaving really hurt its content. Avoid like the plague.

I’ll resubscribe when they start talking about fantasy baseball and not Covid

I’ll miss their fantasy baseball insights.
