Come for the bad cocktails, stay for the funny alcohol fueled rants as two lifelong San Francisco Giants fans discuss their favorite baseball team while enjoying homemade cocktails.

    The Giants Don't Suck. Much.

    The Giants Don't Suck. Much.

    They've run out of things to talk about yet somehow they're still talking. And drinking! Today Ben has made a Rum Firewalker while Matthew is drinking a 49er Margarita (inspired by the devil!). On the baseball side of things they rant about Hall of Fame voting (congrats Scott Rolen, sorry Jeff Kent), debate if the Giants are secretly good (Matthew) or secretly bad (Ben), and brainstorm ways the team could improve the fan experience (improved bathroom technology).

    Kapler: 12th Best Manager?

    Kapler: 12th Best Manager?

    How fine of a manager is Gabe Kapler really? The brothers ponder this over modified classic cocktails; Ben is deep in the Tiki hut with a Blueberry Motiko while Matthew is getting punched in the throat by a Spicy Gold Rush. On the baseball side of things the jokers discuss the end of the Belt Wars, wrap up the Carlos Correa Saga, and finish with a robust discussion of the Giants pitching staff including new bargain bin signee, Luke Jackson.

    The Lost Episode: Pre-Correa Drama

    The Lost Episode: Pre-Correa Drama

    It's the lost Episode! It was recorded the evening that the Giants reportedly signed Correa. So we had to re-record. We're releasing it now because many (but not all) of our takes are still relevant and we get a bit drunk at the end - good for a few laughs. Enjoy!
    Drinks start at 10:40
    Baseball starts at 23:00
    Since the cocktails we introduce here are the same as Episode 80, here are two cocktail recipes that we enjoy that you may as well.
