It's Tuesday which means new episode of Starting 9 is out. We're joined by All Star reliever Liam Hendriks from last week's festivities. As we say on the show, it cannot be overstated just how chaotic the player schedules are that Tuesday. Says a lot about the kinda guy Liam is to give us his morning with his folks and family in town. All so he could share his message with you guys so do him a solid and give it a listen. He's got a crazy story from ousted starter to Reliever Of The Year.
Other stuff that moves my needle includes the Red Sox collapse, David Ortiz induction, Nick Castellanos fighting with the reporter, Madison Bumgarner is always pissed off, Danny Vogelbach is sweet, Trout is a WBC captain and did you know the Angels went almost a month without winning a game started by a pitcher other than Shohei?
I can keep going. It's a loaded show because it's our first one in the midst of 2nd half action. We got standings up dates and massive sweeps and even a movie review that deserves it's own blog.
This is the kinda baseball show the internet deserves. But don't take the butcher's word for it. Go ahead and stick your head up the bulls ass:
