Horsing Around bucks the traditional athlete podcast. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Pete Fairbanks throws the old format a curveball and hosts a range of guests to discuss the superiority of Brussels sprouts, play games like Watch, Re-Watch, Shelve, and, of course, honor the greatest Pokémon of all, Blaziken. There will not be an appearance from BoJack Horseman, but you will get Players Weekend style content, all of the time. Less deep, less researched, but way more entertaining than Revisionist History, this is Horsing Around.
Put the Horsing Around Podcast in Your Ears!
Pete chats with Los Angeles Angels reliever Aaron Slegers and Miami Marlins reliever John Curtiss about minor league experiences, NASCAR reruns as punishment, Curtiss’ love for rosin bags, bullpen theory/policy for different teams, Oliver Drake, Tampa Bay’s ability to allow relievers to be who they are, and what would happen if the world’s oceans were drained. Curtiss plays a musical interlude and Slegers showcases co-hosting duties.
