Welcome to our first episode dedicated exclusively to the 2016 baseball season! Matt is joined by the Once and Future Podcast Host (and Executive Producer, President-for-Life, and any other honorific he wants to have as long as he's paying for hosting) Cody Fitch to digest a full 2 weeks of sweet MLB action and discuss how the more things change, the more Curt Schilling is still just THE WORST. 

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Why We Can't Have Nice Things, [REDACTED], The Shape of Time, The Legend of Jake Drago, A Meme Too Far: The Curt Schilling Story, Prince Apocrypha, Fan Swears, Throwing Shade on the Rays, Baseball Amnesia, and Hand Signal Hashtags. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook, Little Red Corvettes!

Ah, Opening Week. Snow on the ground, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, a feeling of Peace on Earth and Goodwill Toward Men. Gather 'round the Yule Log as we riff for an hour or so about the first couple days of the regular season, and other nonsense (mostly other nonsense). 

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Opening Day Carols, Matt Damon Doo-Doo Movies, The Immaculate Sports Conception, Matt Duffy Beef, Luthorian Hatred, Mariners Schadenfreude, Wags Above Replacement, No Walking Dead Spoilers, The Forgettable NL Central, Jorge Soler Slander, Rich Yankee Problems, and the Legend of Marlins Guy. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow and That Baseball Show on Facebook, Carolers!

Conjunction junction, what's your function? How DOES a bill get made into a law? Why is 3 a magic number? All questions you won't find answers to in the dugout, but don't tell that to Adam LaRoche. Also it's the return of the Beer Bet and we have some humdingers for you as we put frosty cold ones on the line for 2016 AL/NL MVP, Cy Young, and overall home run champ! 

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Not Great Baseball Acting, Quarter Pounder Strike Zones, Historical Drakes, Kid Leadership, The Babyfaced MVP, Complicated "X" Nicknames, Sweet Chris-on-Chris Action, and Geek Test Over-Correcting.

This episode of TBS goes out to all you hep cats out there in Podcast Land. Aww yeah, you know who you are. We're riding this show express to Chillsville daddy-o, with some hot goofs about Pete Rose and Donald Trump, Goose Gossage v. Bryce Harper, and Barry Bonds all up in the mix. And a 1, and a 2...

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Ballplayer Name Retractions, The Cliff Calhoun Trio, Veterate vs. Inveterate Gambling, The Best Pete Rose There Is, Altered World History Baseballs, Pond Animal Sabermetrics, Old Man Rant Bingo, and Rockies Mascot Dick Jokes. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook, swingers!  

 

Mar 15, 2016

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! 

Feb 29, 2016

We're feeling pretty good TBS Nation. I think it's safe to say we reported to this episode in the Best Shape Of Our Lives. We discuss fellow Best Shape of His Lifer Pablo Sandoval, baseball in London, Don Mattingly's new rules, and we put another US city on blast! Who will be next, you ask? Don't try anything funny, Kalamazoo. 

 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Funyun Diets, The "Reverse Truman", Philadelphia Fan Ballistics, Olympic Proms, Vuvuzela Survival Tips, Google Specificity, Auspicious Minds, Cartesian Sideburns, and Mullet Moonwalks. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook, fellow gym rats!

Oh boy did we ever record a really great episode for you! But Podcast Krampus struck once more in the form of a new call recorder and it is forever lost to time and space, so you get this one instead. We talk Jennry Mejia's historic lifetime ban and see where the worlds of baseball and pro wrestling intersect. 

Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Podcast Enhancing Drugs, Weekend At Peyton's, Foodservice Dabbing, The Many Catchphrases of Andre the Giant, Air Bud's Secret Identity, Pete Rose v. The (Other) Big Red Machine, Blue Collar Wrestling Personas, The Demographics of Juggy Restaurants, TBS "Facts", and some very exciting news re: our pals The Knitts! Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook! Yes! Yes! Yes!  

Feb 10, 2016

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!

Feb 2, 2016
We apologize in advance for this shortened one, Nation- not for the horrible Sarah Palin/Haray Caray impressions at the top, but because the debate over whether or not the NL should adopt the Designated Hitter devolved into Matt losing it over Air Bud goofs. You know what, never mind- we stand by all of it. 
 
Listen to this pod if you want to hear us talk about Palin-tology, Matt and Jimmy: The Baseball's Red Sons, The NL (Stoning) Lottery, DH Truthers, Greenpeace Press Gangs, Squiggly Bartolo Colon Lines, "Great" Pitcher/Hitters, Papi B Goode, and really just the worst Air Bud baseball movie titles we could think of. Also, baseball. @ThatBBShow on Twitter and That Baseball Show on Facebook for a good harvest! 
Jan 22, 2016

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.

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.
