No, TBS Nation, this isn't Heaven. But maybe don't stand too close to home plate while you listen to Jimmy try to remember his way through a certain movie he's never seen. We also discuss the evolution of Cleveland team names and enjoy some old-timey players!

We realize by the time this comes out this topic will have had its moment in the sun, but can we as a nation take some time to look back on some TERRIBLE hats? Can we also discuss the plethora of no-hitters and play our favorite game, Shut Up, Old Man? We can't? Well, that's the episode, so...suck eggs, I guess!

Happy 2021 MLB season, friends! We hope you like our tagline for it, as well as our covering of extra innings/ghost runners, Atlanta/NYM shenanigans, Bauer's balls, and corporate wokeness. We also dive deep into antitrust! Did we mention we consider this a funny show?

Hello TBS Nation! The pandemic, stubbornly clutching onto to our country and world as it has done for the past year, made our yearly Treefort Music Fest live show quite impossible. But we took a stab at a Zoom show joined by our special guest Ryan McEachern of the McEachern Podcast Network! We take a look at the 2021 season to come, make our predictions, and talk about the weird stuff in our respective rooms. Enjoy!

Feb 8, 2021

Put on your finest finery and walk with us down the TBSBBHOF red carpet as we celebrate one of the greatest ever to play the game! We try to tackle the question of why the HOF is such a drag- we also play "Are They Trying?" w/the 2021 hot stove season and write a new Saw movie.

Oct 29, 2020

What if I told you that a baseball team would defy the odds, silence the critics and reward the faithful by winning as many games as they lose?

Jun 20, 2020

Trust us, we'd prefer (ok, *Matt* would prefer) to talk AC:NH all day but Jimmy did a lot of work to breakdown the current state of negotiations between the players and the owners/league about the 2020 season. So we dive deep into the bad faith and absurdity that prevails in American pro ball right now!

May 25, 2020

The orchestra's yawning and they're dimming the lights down dear listeners, so it can only mean one thing- it's the last The Last Dance. We talk about a show having nothing to do with baseball that only one of has seen, and we also break down the mascots of the KBO because there isn't much else to cover just now. Enjoy! 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about those things we said above. Also tweet us @thatbbshow with your MJ red-assed baseball equivalent and make your pitch to Matt for which KBO team to follow, quaranteens! (Rates and reviews on Apple Podcasts also go down smooth). 

Apr 25, 2020

Remember a time when you could go to a ballgame without having to rub peanuts in your eyes and pretzels on your face? Sean Hannity remembers, and he's got some tips and tricks for a post-'rona sporting world! We talk about what that world would look like, what it looks like now, and Matt gets away with not addressing the Red Sox cheating! 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us try not to talk about how everything is wack. @ThatBBShow and leave an Apple Podcasts review, wastelanders! 

Feb 20, 2020

Join us in the lonely Manfred Mansion as our Dear Commish asks himself why baseball is so bad and plays with the rabbits one last time. We also talk (more) Astros, the Mets clubhouse, Nolan, and (sigh x a billion) Mookie. We're gonna get it through it, gang!

Oct 31, 2019

Thanks for tuning into this episode but do keep it at a low volume- we are a month into the Umprising and it's pretty dicey out there. Keep your heads down while we cover (some of) the World Series, Trump's visit to Nationals Park, the dumb and bad Astros front office, and postseason manager moves. 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about 1 Like = 1 Pornstar, Cascading Brainfalls, The Right Side of 40,and the Wrong Tingle. Also baseball. @ThatBBShow and leave an Apple Podcasts review, contagion! 

Oct 5, 2019

Ah Gary, thanks for coming in. We appreciate everything you've done Gary, but it's time for you to be plugged into a weird action movie from the 90's. Make your peace as Jimmy and Matt cover pre/postseason predictions, King Felix, MadBum, coach firings and petty beefs. Also sorry we talk about dog butts so much. 

 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about The View From Back Here, The Era of Bad Faith, Pirate Cocaine, and the Red-Assed Void. @ThatBBShow and leave an Apple Podcasts review, GARY. 

Sep 5, 2019

This episode was recorded in Denver with our good friend fellow Rox fan Geoff, so we decided what better time to turn Jimmy's weekly grousing into another MST installment. We also talk gas station boner pills (like a lot, CW here), exciting rookies, and do some blasphemy to the Catholic Church (CW here too I guess). 

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us talk about Skeleton Vibrations, Craigton Craigshaw, #GettingPoped, and Ride AND Die. @ThatBBShow and leave an Apple Podcasts review, philosophers! 

Jul 26, 2019

Jul 4, 2019

We just want to get out ahead of this; this episode does NOT hinge largely on re-naming a certain minor league team after a fish. Having now said that legally you can't say it does. We also talk London Series, Cookie Monster, the Mets, and a break in the Ortiz case!

Listen to this episode if you want to hear us discuss C.H.U.D. Procreation, iFelonies, Nega-bases, and RedBum Zingers. Also, baseball. @Thatbbshow and leave us an Apple Podcasts review, no snitchtagging Buster!

Whether you mark time in clips, grips or hot minutes, we're back! Jimmy and Matt uncover candidates for Worst Walk-off and First Pitch, talk Fortnite ballpark cam dances, praise Bill Buckner and Dustin Pedroia (but only bury one), and talk Vladito and other 90's player scions.

Matt's on the bench this week, so what better time than now for a make-up recording with friend of the podcast Mike Sharp! We discuss Mike's career as a T-ball coach, Tim Anderson's very good bat flips and Vladito and Harper while staying away from Cal Ripken's wife.
