Episode 454: Blaze Jordan
BLAZE JORDAN joins the pod and boy is this guy addicted to hitting home runs! The 19 year-old phenom has been in the spotlight since he was 11 years old when a video of him hitting a 395-foot home run went viral, but he wasn't done there. He went re-viral two years later when he hit TWO 500-foot home runs at the age of 13! Insane. Now he's a top Red Sox prospect and we couldn't be happier to have him. We talk to Blaze about what it was like to have that much attention as a kid and when he realized his power was something special, how he got the name Blaze and how it's one of the best sports names ever, his reaction when he got picked by the Red Sox and his decision to go pro instead of playing in college, meeting Mookie Betts at the All-Star Game in 2019, his relationships with other top prospects in the Red Sox organization, and his goals for 2022 and how he wants to progress as a player. Safe to say this won't be the last interview with Blaze Jordan. During the rest of the episode we get another Pat's 12-Pack where Pat lists his top 12 favorite frogs, we talk about bat flips/celebrations and people getting mad about them, throwing at people and charging the mound, N64 and Mario Kart, and a whole lot more. Chris Cotillo also joins the pod for a quick phone call which results in him being indefinitely suspended from the podcast.

Episode 450: David Ortiz is a Hall of Famer (Feat. Johnny Damon)
We have a guest for the THIRD straight week as Johnny Damon joins the show to discuss David Ortiz's election to the Baseball Hall of Fame. We also talk to Johnny about how ridiculous it is that he's not in the Red Sox Hall of Fame, how much he loved his years with the Red Sox and how he wanted to stay in Boston, what happened in negotiations and why he signed with the Yankees, outfielders/players getting yelled at by fans, his Grand Slam in Game 7 of the ALCS and everything about the 2004 postseason, his thoughts on Bonds and Clemens not being elected to the Hall, and a whole bunch more. Throughout the rest of the episode the guys dive deep into Ortiz's career and discuss why he might've gotten elected to the Hall of Fame over other guys in his era.

Episode 449: Tim Wakefield
Tim Wakefield joins the podcast as our string of guests on Section 10 continues! We talk to Tim about Pedro's legacy, his famous knuckleball and its ideal speed, if he had any gas left in the tank to try to break the record for most wins as a Red Sox pitcher, the best Red Sox team he's played for, being there for the beginning of David Ortiz's rise to stardom, Kevin Millar's influence in the 2004 ALCS comeback against the Yankees, Varitek's struggles catching his knuckleball in Game 5 of that ALCS, his favorite non-baseball memory of 2004, his relationship with players on the Yankees during that era, whether the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry will ever be the same, if his demeanor on the mound and the unpredictability of the knuckleball is a metaphor for how he lives his life, his Roberto Clemente award in 2010, Johnny Damon, and his celebrity status in Boston after the 2004 saga. Tim then executes an all-time exit to the interview. We talk for a few minutes about Coley's role in the Red Sox signings of international players before we get into the main topic of the rest of the episode; a deep dive into spiders and bees.

Episode 448: Jon Lester
Less than 24 hours after announcing his retirement, Jon Lester joins the podcast in an hour-long interview to talk about his legendary career in Major League Baseball. We talk about everything from his first start in the big leagues, to shadowing Josh Beckett, how winning a championship so early on in his career affected him, the 2012 dumpster-fire of a season, the Boston Marathon bombings, the blockbuster trade with the Dodgers, being traded to the A's, his chances of coming back to Boston in free agency, why it looked like he had more fun playing for the Cubs, and a whole lot more. Pat Light also shares a story about his experience pitching in front of Jon and how intimidating it was. The second half of the pod features Coley down in Cuba scouting players for the Sox and discussion about what the players are actually looking to get out of the CBA negotiations. Enjoy!

Episode 447: Voicemails
In what is officially the longest episode in Section 10 History, the crew listens to four hours of voicemails from people who are mad at Pat. Some are critical, some are more forgiving, and some are just straight up mean. In between voicemails we talk about the bar scene in Boston and what a Section 10 bar could look like, Brian Johnson’s stories and his chemistry with Pat, and the chances Pat would buy a bar in Boston. Pat also shares experiences from his career and talks about the pressure he faced to give up his best pitch. Strap in, it’s a long one!
Episode 446: Punctual Pat
The gang's all here (Jared, Coley, and Jake) for the last episode of 2021. We kick off the episode by going through some hypotheticals of what would happen if a major league pitcher showed up late for his start and what the consequences would be. Jared talks about his love for the Coast Guard and how he's always ranked them equally amongst the other branches of the military. Jared and Coley compare the contracts of Rick Porcello and John Lackey's careers with the Sox before moving into some Clay Buchholz discussion. Pat joins the show and we break down the miscommunication that caused him to be two hours late. Pat talks about his infamous outing against the Angels and gives an interesting anecdote about his interaction with Clay Buchholz in the dugout after he was pulled. Pat also gets into the nuances of pitching and talks about his best/worst pitches as a major leaguer. We end with everyone's New Year's resolutions for 2022. Happy New Year!
