Disappointed

Really wanted to like this show with Matt, I listened loyally for a few years; I love his optimism and he clearly loves the game, which made the show much better. However, his anti-capitalist rhetoric is the reason I stopped listening. Where does the money that funds his paycheck come from? Ad reads, commercials, and deals with the large corporate entities. The hypocrisy demolished any respect I had for him.

Run

Spiegel has the ability to turn any show he has pushed his way onto into a Spiegel-centric self-love fest. Baseball, a make-believe band and personal problems seem to be his topics of choice. If you’ve heard one show, you’ve heard them all.
