Strikeouts Are Fascist, The Red Sox Are Red Hot And Josh Donaldson Is Your Textbook Jackhammer: Starting 9 Ep 005

Episode 005: NL Legends Take The Mound + Weekly Awards

On Episode 005, we dive into the weekend action around the league, including two National League legends take the mound.

Meanwhile Adley makes his debut, the Red Sox are heating up and my goodness is the NL West competitive. 

It's also a good day because I know for a fact 100% that we're going to publish on Thursday the best sports interview I've witnessed. Or maybe it was just a conversation? It didn't feel like an interview at all. It was just Jake and Kevin Gausman chopping up their life lessons learned as a couple of heavily manipulated and abused Orioles minor leaguers. Kinda sad at some points but then you remember these are literally two of the filthiest guys in our generation to ever walk this planet. Plus plus split. Plus heater. Big game demeanor and everything you want in between. What a great fuckin day and an even better interview that will definitely deliver.
