Fun baseball talk

The show is a delight to listen to. It’s free of the hot take let’s argue just to argue talk and really dives into good baseball talk not just blah blah blah scratch the surface baseball arguments. I’d recommend it for any baseball fan.

Great Twins Podcast

Updated: downgrading to a four star only because now that they have a patreon side, I feel like there is a 5 minute live promo of them promoting the patreon side. This is on top of usually three sponsors they promote. Understand they are trying to make some money, no fault in they. It just is getting to be a lot for a supposedly free podcast. The rest of the elreview is still valid other than as they gotten bigger, you don’t seems to get the brewery and restaurant reviews anymore, which is a shame.

Gleeman and The Geek is an excellent Twins podcast. They know their stuff on all things Twins, and they also give a great review of the local Brews/Breweries and Resturants in the Twin Cities. They add a bit of humor talking about their lives and personal experiences (this can turn into half the show during the offseason). Great addition to the local take on the Twins.
