We're not going to lie, gang- there is a LOT of owl puns in this one. Matt did his best but they were inevitable, and we thought it best to warn you ahead of time. Mad thanks to the Boise Hawks and the Ada Community Libraries for having us and for letting Matt-- I mean, "Whoodini" the Library Owl throw out the first pitch last week! We talk about that experience, plus Matt gives Jimmy another quiz that proves his baseball hipsterism. We also talk no-nos and the NL West! 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Mascot Alter Egos, The Saddest Dab, The Scottish Pitcher, Ruined Sandwiches, Snowflake No-Nos, and Jimmy Goes Heel. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and do leave us a review on iTunes, you cool gangsters!

(Hey gang, sorry we wanged the earlier upload of this episode. Let that be a lesson- "copy" =/= "paste"! Anyway here is a corrected upload for your enjoyment -Matt) 

Hello TBS Nation! With only a few weeks to go before the start of the 2017 season, you best believe this episode is chock-full of expert analysis on the many 90's songs featuring Godzilla. YOU DESERVE IT. We also talk WBC, spring training guests and a hot new country album that is crawling in the direction of the charts! We also finally determine who is the Pete Rose of this podcast. Plus a LIVE SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT during wrap-up! 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about The Podcast Awards, Unconscious Coupling, Mensches On a Bench, (Baseball) Service Guarantees Citizenship, Tebow At The Bat, Secrets Of and Possibly To Life, and Godzilla Soundtracks. @ThatBBShow on Twitter, tribe!

Hey there Nation! We would have had this very special 2016 season preview episode of TBS up earlier, but we couldn't settle on what to call the podcasting super-group created when Jimmy and Matt combined forces with Ryan McEachern of the McEachern Podcast Network! We never did decide- Audioslave I think? We also provide terrible gambling advice which you shouldn't follow.* 

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Chris Russo Impressions, Stamp Sound Effects, Advanced Mustache Metrics, T-Pain Burrito Techniques, The Rise of The Carrasborg, The Uribe Uncertainty Principle, #notalllineups, Amazon Drone Horse Delivery, A New Term for Tanking, and OUR FIRST LIVE SHOW EVAR! Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook, Spoon Men and Women!

Hello Nation! This podcast is late, that is to say it's later than we'd like. Also Matt's audio sounds like he was recording in a snowstorm- rest assured, it's like 50 degrees here. Apologies for both, Podcast Krampus strikes again! 

 

In this episode we review/geek out over the Season 3 Simpsons episode "Homer At The Bat". We cover the episode's history, the player guest stars, and why Jose Canseco is THE WORST. We also talk about our Super Beef, The Confounding Rockies, Air Bud Junkballs, and What's Worse Than Jose Canseco. Also baseball. @thatBBshow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on FB- Grampy Bowman approves!

When we committed to doing the pod weekly through the off-season, we have to admit we were worried we wouldn't have enough to talk about. Then the MLB went to court over TV contract rights and that MAKES US ANGRY. We also discuss the notion of automated strike zones and what that means for humanity's desperate struggle against our robot overlords. And Matt apologizes for his plosives- his pop filter fell off. Womp womp.


Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Withdrawal Spiders vs. Actual Spiders, A Piping Hot Cold Open, Eagles Atheism, M*A*S*H Knowledge, RSNs Are Too Big To Fail?, Kafka-esque Court Settlements, Let's Bern This Joint Down, Wordy Ref Taunts, R2-D2 vs. BB-8, and Giant Robot Stadiums. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook, Robo-Sinners! 

Jan 17, 2016

One more pod in the can before Jimmy heads back to L.A. Thanks to UnBound for use of their dope podcasting studio! And sorry for all the baby-eating jokes, Matt promises to watch Labyrinth to get the actual ending. 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear about Some Sort of Maze, David Bowie Walk-Up Songs, Aroldis Chapman: Baby Eater, Rage Against the (Pitching) Machine, Mr. Slide, Straight As An Arrow: The Jimmy Bowman Story, Gronktastic Park, pulling a Full-On Favre, Life After Sports and Jessica Mendoza is here to stay. Also baseball.

On this week's abbreviated episode, Matt and Jimmy spend a lot of their precious time telling you they don't have a lot of time. Seems like someone should have told them they were wasting the time they didn't have, but meh. 

Listen to this episode if you'd like to know more about The Best Baseball Player to Follow on Instagram, What would a Food Truck Named "Even Year Magic Serve?", Belief in Wheelbarrows of Money, The Dread Pirate Rockies and why no one wants to play in Denver, Legends like Danny Whatshisname, The Season of (No) Hope, Mark Reynolds Hates Nature, and Everything about the Reds Must Go! Also baseball.

In this week's episode, Jimmy and Matt put their hands on a hot stove. Their moms said not to, but sometimes you just have to let the little dickens make their own mistakes, amirite? 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Amateur Padcasting, Baseball Hanukkah, Two and A Half Pitchers, squashing beef in Boston, is Zack Greinke John Travolta or Olivia Newton-John in this analogy?, lots of other horrible analogies (we seriously feel bad), Bruce Bochy: Celestial Being, Mark Trumbo: the Nothing-man of Anyone, the uncomfortable Aroldis Chapman saga, and how Barry Bonds is like Ian McKellen. Also, baseball.
