Episode 59: Eric Nusbaum and Magic Baserunners
Friend of the show Eric Nusbaum returns to chat with Adam and Jim about his book "Stealing Home" a year after it's release on the anniversary of the first ever game at Dodger Stadium in 1962. The conversation then turns to the very thing Jim hates the most, the new MLB Extra Innings Rule.
Stealing Home is out on paperback this month and I highly recommend it! Here's my review:

RAB Episode 55: Hating the Player, and The Game
In this episode, Jim and Adam have a discussion about the ascent of Trevor Bauer, and why he needs to be held accountable for his actions, particularly on social media. We also take a step back though, and start asking bigger, more nuanced questions on why Bauer is more the symptom of a larger problem, than the problem itself.
Episode 54: We Open Bad Cards.
In this episode, Jim and Adam open two packs of '91 Fleer Baseball cards, and marvel at how terrible their luck is.
The segment was heavily inspired by our friends at Two Strike Noise. If you don't follow them already, check them out!
