Episode 375: Doug Mientkiewicz
The man who caught the last out of the 2004 World Series to end the Curse of the Bambino joins us today! With Doug Mientkiewicz we talk about his time on the 2000 Olympic baseball team, Tommy Lasorda stories from that experience, breakdown of his trade from the Twins to the Red Sox including his conversations with Nomar, an awkward exchange with Pedro and the overall weirdness of how everything went down. We then get into what it was like for him and Orlando Cabrera to "replace" Nomar, how much A-Rod cared too much about his image at all times, a closeup reaction from that A-Rod slap play that happened right in front of him in the 2004 ALCS, best behind-the-scenes stories from that insane comeback vs. the Yankees, how he continuously clowned Joe Torre afterwards for pitching to Papi, a lengthy story on what happened with the last out ball from the World Series (that's a juicy one), why he had endless respect for Curt Schilling's playoff performance in 2004 and how that team continued to always have the "Why not us?" mentality all the way through that World Series title run. After the Mientkiewicz interview we talk what that cryptic JBJ tweet actually meant and get y'all ready for the next Section 10 Goslings Roundtable which is March 3 at 8pm ET! All that and much more.

Coley’s the real G
Steve is insufferable
Have to fast forward through 90% of this show. Don't bother listening to anything but the interviews (which are actually great). Steve needs to take a seat
Coley is the best and should talk more.
