    The guys are back and this week we're breaking down the official "Most Hated Players In Baseball" list based on negative tweets about said players. Dallas and Joey are questioning the legitimacy of the list due to some of the star-studded names that appear near the top. Ronald Acuña Jr. is hurt again and Joey gives his take on how it affects the Braves. Joey Votto seemingly teased his retirement the other day and Jared wants to know if he was being for real or if he has more in the tank after this season. We also dive into the most disappointing teams/players in baseball to start the year. Jared also wants to cancel Joe DiMaggio which leads to discussion of Mickey Mantle's blowjob letter that he wrote to the Yankees. Enjoy!

    It was an eventful series in The Bronx this past weekend as Josh Donaldson was accused by Tim Anderson, Tony La Russa, and others of making a racist comment to Anderson. Donaldson maintains that he was referencing an interview in 2019 in which Anderson was quoted as saying, "I kind of feel like Jackie Robinson." Jared, Dallas, and Joey give their takes on the situation and speculate on whether this was a racist comment or an inside joke/jab at Anderson. They also talk about whether MLB will take any disciplinary action on Donaldson. Other topics include; Johnny Cueto allowing zero runs in two starts since his return, Justin Verlander dominating in almost every pitching statistic in the AL, the NL East and whether the Braves can get back in it, Manny Machado's hot start and Jared's disdain for Padres fans, Dallas getting Bob Geren fired, and the Red Sox having the best record in baseball since Alex Cora shaved his beard.

    We're LIVE in-studio with Jared and Jonny Gomes, with Dallas and Joey on zoom. Joey has discovered some never before listened to audio of Daryl Strawberry saying he wants to punch Dallas Braden in the face. We listen to the audio and get Dallas' live reaction. Then we move onto the continued infestation of possums in the Oakland Coliseum and talk about why Dallas keeps capturing and killing these possums. The Astros made history by hitting five home runs against the Red Sox which is only the eighth time that's happened in MLB history, though Jared doesn't think it's that impressive. We break down a hypothetical Mets/Dodgers NLCS and predict who would win and why. Taylor Ward is still the hottest hitter on the planet and shows no signs of slowing down, and Dallas questions if Mike Trout is now the third best player on his own team. Jonny shares some WILD international baseball stories, fight stories, Savannah Banana stories and rules, and talks about his upcoming trip to hit homers all over the world in Home Run Derby X. Enjoy!

    If you thought Albert Pujols already accomplished everything there is to accomplish in his baseball career, you were wrong. This weekend he added pitching to the list as he closed out a game against the Giants who took no issue with him pitching as they're publicly against unwritten rules. Jared commented on the Phillies blowing the last game of the series against the Dodgers and fans were all up in Jared's mentions since the Phillies won the first three games of the series. The Pirates beat the Reds 1-0 and didn't get a hit the entire game which is only the sixth time that's happened in history. Joey talks about what's going on with the Braves after a real tough series against the Pirates. That, and a lot more in Episode 12.

    Reid Detmers no-hit the Rays in his 11th big league start and the boys are STILL fired up in LA. Brett Phillips gets another appearance on the mound and Dallas questions if his shine as the American Shohei Ohtani has died out at this point. The Blue Jays are off to an underwhelming start based on how much preseason hype their lineup got. Christian Yelich hit for the cycle for the third time in his career which bodes well for Jared's Comeback Player of the Year prediction. Jared also brings up the fact that the Reds are 4-2 since Jeff Passan called them out for tanking. Joey thinks that allowing civilized fighting between players could make the game safer. We also get a live show of Jared's apartment windows getting cleaned so make sure to check out our YouTube channel for that.

    Joey called it... the boys are fired up! Joe Maddon's Angels have gone 16-7 since the infamous intentional walk with the bases loaded. The Braves look like they may be turning a corner and are definitely the only chance of our teams collectively finishing above .500. The Red Sox were swept by the White Sox over the weekend and the A's just lost their ninth straight game on Sunday, so it looks like the Braves will have to win at least 100 games to get that done. We also talk about Joe Girardi potentially being on the hot seat in Philly, Taylor Ward absolutely raking for the Angels, George Kirby's debut for Seattle on Mother's Day, the Mets' insane comeback on Friday and if they're for real, Jared getting free chicken fingers at a WWE event, and a little astrology to end the show.

Dan Bellino officially put his name in the hat this week during one of the most bizarre player/umpire interactions in recent memory where he stared directly at Madison Bumgarner for an uncomfortably long time during a hand check for sticky substances. Jared, Dallas, and Joey break down this unusual moment and try to figure out why it happened. The guys also get into some other topics from baseball this week which include the Yankees win-streak coming to an end, Dallas's call of Mike Zunino's game tying home run on the A's broadcast, John Sterling being up to his old tricks again, Aaron Judge's hot streak and moment with fan in Toronto, and Eric Hosmer being the hottest hitter in baseball.

    Jared, Dallas, and Joey are back for episode three to discuss an eventful beginning to the week for Major League Baseball. Of course, the story on everyone's mind is Clayton Kershaw being pulled after seven perfect innings against the Twins. Dallas describes his reaction when he saw that Kershaw wasn't on the mound for the 8th inning and discusses the long term impact that throwing a perfect game could have on a team, its fans and the game of baseball, but also factors in the importance of winning and staying healthy into a manager's decision to pull a pitcher in this situation. But first, Jared reacts to John Sterling's botched home run call and insists that the baseball Gods must be on his side for him to have heard it live on the radio. The guys also break down Brett Phillips' pitching performance and Dallas's call of his incredible catch as well as Phillips hitting his longest and hardest hit home run after receiving a good-luck bracelet from a girl who is battling cancer for the second time. We also touch on the video that went viral of Alec Bohm saying he hates Philadelphia, the Cleveland Guardians' consistently ridiculous offense, the situation with Gabe Kapler, an ejection during the Padres/Giants game that led to the first female coach to ever step on a field during a MLB game, and Albert Pujols hitting his first home run as a Cardinal since 2011 and whether he is actually the age that he says he is.

    Jared and Dallas are BACK and this time they're bringing along Joey, aka “Baseball Doesn't Exist.” The guys are on a mission to prove that no matter how many people declare the sport of baseball “dead,” the real fans know that it couldn't be a more exciting time to start getting into baseball. Jared starts episode 1 of “Baseball Is Dead” by providing some background on his hiatus from podcasting over the last month and a half. He talks about his decision to leave Barstool Sports to join DraftKings and some of the exciting new content plans he has in store for this MLB season. He welcomes Dallas back to the show and introduces Joey, a Braves fan who will bring a much-needed National League perspective to the show. The guys then breakdown some of the major signings and trades that occurred post-lockout and talk about what shocked them, what didn't, which teams got better and which teams got worse. They cover topics from Carlos Correa signing with the Twins, to Josh Donaldson being paired up with Gerrit Cole in New York, the Braves replacing Freddie Freeman with Matt Olson, and the head-scratching signing of Kris Bryant by the Rockies. Of course, it wouldn't be an Opening Day podcast without predictions for the season, so the guys give their takes on who they think will win Comeback Player of the Year, Manager of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and MVP. We couldn't be more excited to be back and we can't wait to get into the swing of things, it's going to be a great year! Enjoy!
