The Team of Rivals Podcast is a weekly sports & pop culture podcast that covers baseball to the big screen and everything in between… Choose your team. Choose your weapon. Let’s get it on.
Happy Valentine's Day, PissyPants
Ron and Pete wake up early on Valentine's Day to dedicate some time to their one, true love: the Cubs-Cardinals rivalry. Jake Arrieta is back with the Cubs on a one-year deal, and Jack Flaherty is not happy with baseball's arbitration system (and maybe his employer?). Surprisingly enough, neither Ron nor Pete is happy with it either.
Hi, Nolan! Bye, Dex?
This week's big topic was obviously the Cardinals acquisition of the All-Star 3rd baseman from Colorado, the Cubs few moves, and the Brewers signing of Kolten Wong. Things escalated quickly, though, as news broke that Dexter Fowler had been shipped to Anaheim to join his former manager. Finally, Ron, Pete, and Elliott discussed how all of their shit-talk backfired regarding the NL Central.
Arenado Reaction Show!
Well, it happened. The Cardinals did it! We didn't think anything significant was going to occur for 2021, but they had us fooled. @Dylan_Dinger joined Ron late on a Friday night to discuss this amazing day!
The first livestream of 2021 leads off with great news for Andrew Knizner: Adam Wainright is back, which surely means that Yadier Molina is not far behind! Pete spreads Cubs spending conspiracies, and then the guys go deep on the rest of the NL Central. (LOL, not really: The Brewers have a new sign, Pittsburgh has lost the will to live, and the Reds could be moving even more arms.) Listen to the end for SUPER-HOT technology and STAR WARS talk!
Very (x14) Thankful
Ron and Pete were lucky enough to be joined this week by the television voice of the St. Louis Cardinals, Dan McLaughlin, to talk about his start in broadcasting, the 2021 season, rules changes, and the huggability of Jim "The Cat" Hayes.
A Chip Off the Old Block
Super Producer Geno scored a big one this week, as former Cubs and current Atlanta Braves broadcaster joined Ron, Pete, and Elliott (late, as usual!) for a wide-ranging interview covering his broadcasting career, his time with the Cubs, and his thoughts on the game of baseball. Plus, Chip explains why he made the right move to not become the voice of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1995.
