Needs more Chris Crawford

Chris Crawford needs to be on every week.

Good show

Good show, but 60 second timer is super distracting. If you keep the bit, use a quieter tick, tick, tick. I promise I am not alone. Great content and informative.

Mixed Bag

I don’t say this to be harsh or mean- pleas take the criticism as constrictive. Eric S. needs some work. We can barely hear what he says, he puts the listener to sleep and his analysis is kinda simplistic. Scott bails him out of bad takes regularly.

Maybe he’s new to this and will improve. He seems like a decent guy who loves baseball.
