Things get insipid quick, as there's just too much Yankees talk. Just ick. They're good though, and Cashman is a great GM, all things considered. Also talk of Baltimore pit beef, the Dodgers and what could go wrong, and basketball, somehow.

What is the point anyway? The Yankees always win. All things fall back to chaos, except baseball. Then it's the goddamn Yankees.
Anyway, here's some postseason talk for you, mostly Indians. Then a pitcher draft! It has few rules.

In honor of the incredible runs of the Cleveland Indians, here's the hosts' 21 favorite things about the 2017 baseball season. It's wide-ranging. Also, Merritt has a great (bad) idea.

Technology is a dazzling thing, especially when it allows for basically innocuous skullduggary in baseball. Yes, sign-stealing. Also, a bit about the streaks going on in each league, and how they stack up. Both teams are surprisingly similar. Yet different. Hmm.... And Nick does some OOTP science.
Opening Song: The Shamblers - We're Going Streaking
Closing Song: Ryan Sheeler - Stealing Paradise

Whether in stature or standing in the eyes of others, gigantic individuals are rocking the base ball world. Giancarlo Stanton has crushed his way to more than 50 home runs. It's amazing. Rhys Hoskins both launches dingers and isn't named Hopkins. What company is he in? And some Cy Young talk.
Opening Song: Mors Ontologica - Massive Action
Closing Song: Bats - Get Upset

There's some sifting through the worst parts of modern baseball (old men complaining, as it's otherwise known), and a discussion on great books of baseball. There's also dog and cat discussion. There was no avoiding it.
Opening Song:The Impossibulls - August
Closing Song: Party Boys - House of Books

Some semblance of baseball chatter is attempted, but it all falls toward Mr. 3000 and Henry Roengartner. Not that that's bad. But Sale and Kluber are briefly discussed. Also, a Frankenstein team is attempted in the NL East in an effort to beat the Nationals. It ends in a cliffhanger. Send us questions!
Opening Song:Lichtenstein - Everything's For Sale
Closing Song: Life in a Blender - Frankenstein

To the dulcet tones of a roofer hammering, the trade deadline and the Dodgers amassing of talent is discusssed. Also Skyrim, and the merits of magework. And prestige TV, and Merritt being a total hipster about it. But seriously, why didn't the Orioles or Padres trade their biggest asset? Silly, really.
Opening Song: PAul Collins - Working Too Hard
Closing Song: The Beets - Television

In perhaps the most "mostly" episode yet, the Cubs are discussed, as is Yu Darvish, and some historical stuff. Perhaps a little FA Cup for baseball for your liking? And somehow, Kyrie to the Heat. Who knows. Enjoy. We did.
Opening Song: The Rebel - Turtle V Octopus
Closing Song: Allister Thompson - The Rambling Irishman
