Nov 13, 2017

WOOOOOOOO!! Bust out the bubbly TBS Nation cuz we won! Don't ask us what- the bit is pretty thin as it is. We wrap up the 2017 World Series, pontificate about the absurdity of ground rules in MLB ballparks, and discuss what a bonehead Yuli Gurriel is.

Quartz or feldspar? Porous or solid? What are the hot rock trends this fall season? Since we have no other interests at this point in the season, we answer all these questions and more on our hit rock tumbler-enthusiast podcast!

This latest episode, much like the end of the 2017 MLB season, is really...what's the word I'm thinking of...spunky! Really spunky. Plucky even, if you think about it. We go over our impressions of the AL Wild Card game we definitely watched before we recorded this ep, as well as our season over/under picks and Cy Young/MVP/division predictions. All in all a real gutsy episode.

Sep 28, 2017

These are trying times, gang. Times like these separate the Milkshake Ducks from the Severus Snapes, and we're not sure which is preferable or even which is which. It's a topsy-turvy world where right is wrong, up is down, and the Twins are in the playoffs. We don't understand any of it either. We make a good sport of it by covering the Nacho Man Phenomenon, milestones and rad plays of the week, last looks at the playoff race, and a touchy subject that swerved into our lane. Take a knee, it's gonna get brutal. 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Fighting With Actual Dogs, The Expanded Potterverse, Transformer Fan Fiction, Have You Seen This Byron?, Doing Unity Bad, Twin Spidermen, and The People vs. Bill iTunes. It'd be ICE if you gave us a review on iTunes and followed us @ThatBBShow! 

Sep 22, 2017

We did it gang! The night we recorded this episode marked the 3rd anniversary of our podcast being a thing. Thanks for sticking around! We celebrate by exchanging some gifts relevant to our favorite goofs. We also talk about the insane AL Wild Card race, Shohei Otani, and weird things that happened to baseballs last week! 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Too Many Pinedas, The Way Math Works, Multiball Tiebreakers, Pedey's Honker-Knock, Eyeball Replacement and Other Body Horrors, Dog Mysteries, and The Otani In You. @ThatBBShow and leave a review on iTunes, agents of chaos! 

Sep 14, 2017

Gang, I think we ordered too much schadenfreude. Like really, we couldn't possibly eat another bite. While you box the rest up, Jimmy and Matt will cover AppleWatchGate, The Dodgers shameful slide, the first team to clinch a playoff spot, Stanton's "real" HR record, and a very good rookie. Maybe TOO good. *eyes narrow*

 

Listen to this podcast if you want to hear us talk about Epilepsy Outbreaks, Cheating on a Turing Test, Snowden Closes His Loop, Cognoscenti Membership, The Rookie Singularity, The Second Coming, and Reverse Fan-boying. @ThatBBShow and leave us an iTunes review, Pornbots! 

Sep 4, 2017

Happy Labor Dabor, y'all! We have a very serious question to ask not only all of you, but also our very special guest Mark Vashro (@mdvashro)- on a scale of 1-10, how good at baseball player are you? 3? Hitter? Very likely? We ask Mark the tough questions, plus we add another terrible first pitch to the pantheon, cover the legal drama of the St. Louis Rally Cat, #allumpsmatter and the NYY/DET brawl. Most of these topics will be straight forward but not all good luck! 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Cheap Bachelor Party Gifts, Baseball Errata, Kickball Rules, Feline Custody Battles, The Handsomest Manager, and Cody's Tin Foil Hat. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and drop us a review on iTunes if you think we're good t baseball!

Aug 16, 2017

We're proud to be the only baseball podcast with the guts to ask the tough questions like "was Captain Planet actually a bad show?" Seriously, about half of the podcast is about that. Sorry in advance. We welcome Podcast Host Emeritus back into the studio (just hush about that) to talk Chris Christie, a minor-league hitting streak coming to an end, Adrian Beltre, and his contemporaries on the all-time hits list. 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Studio Fake News, #AL4Lyfe, Nacho Security, Sexy Singles Want to Boo, Beltre Quirks, Death Before Designation, and Fridge Scum. @ThatBBShow on Twitter, Planeteers! 

Jul 27, 2017

The trade deadline is upon us! Which teams are buyers? Sellers? The market is heating up hotter than an 8-piece Blazin' Sauce dinner (TM TM TM)! It's chocolate bananas up in here! Man, I'm hungry. I hope another team doesn't use that take advantage of me. We talk J.D., Jose, and discuss whether or not Pablo was underpaid(?!?). We also debut a new interview segment "My Stupid Team"- this week we talk Orioles with friend of the show and LA comedian Bryan Thomas. 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Sandoval Slash Fiction, Actual Panda Defense, Planet Kershaw, Blanchett Comparisons, and Cowboy Identity Theft. @ThatBBShow and rate/review on iTunes, farmhands!
