5-22-2021 Passed Ball Show. John opens up this show by previewing the upcoming NBA Playoffs while stating the 7th and 8th seeds should have to earn their respective playoff berths. He picks a couple upsets. He then breaks down four major points in the media/ Chicago White Sox players/ Tony LaRussa saga. First, he mentions the fact that the fans and media wanted him gone since the day he was hired. Then, he brings up the fact that LaRussa screwed up by airing the dirty laundry to the media, something Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil did not do and something Joe Girardi refused to do. When it comes to the 3-0 take sign LaRussa gave to Yermin Mercedes, there is no excuse for the player to ignore the sign- insubordination should not be tolerated at any job at any level. Finally, John refuses to exonerate the Minnesota Twins, who quit competing in the game by throwing a random position player on the mound. The Twins do not have the right to dictate to their opponent whether their opponent should compete or not. He then compares LaRussa’s situation with the White Sox to the 2012 Red Sox and Bobby Valentine and the 1965-1966 Yankees and Johnny Keane. John finishes off the program by knocking Jim McMahon for taking a shot at Bill Belichick, something he never earned the right to do. He compares McMahon to Jimmy Garappolo in regards to his inability to stay healthy.

Today we are joined by former Red Sox reliever and the 2020 NL Comeback Player of the Year Daniel Bard! With Bard (10:50) we talk when he knew he was gonna have a chance at making a big league comeback, the process of returning to the majors after being more than 7 years removed from his last game, why he was a little surprised the D-Backs didn't let him pitch in Arizona since he was coaching for them at the time, how wild it was that he was actually having fun pitching again, how the COVID stoppage almost ended his comeback attempt, the role the Greenville Drive played in helping him during the stoppage, what actually happened between him and Bobby Valentine in terms of the decision to make him a starter in 2012, when he was at his absolute lowest during this process, how hard it was for him to ask for help from fellow teammates and pitchers like Jonathan Papelbon, the importance of mental health for athletes still being overlooked, how he takes pride in helping others who are going through struggles finding the strike zone, who would star as him in a Daniel Bard movie and more! After the Bard talk we give you the exact record the Red Sox need to have in April for them to have a chance at a postseason spot, Bobby Dalbec's pursuit of home run history, and how truly happy Jared is that Steve got his Twitter unsuspended.

"You've gotta give us a shot!".... In honor of our 10th episode, we look back at the career of #10 Terry Collins. As we go through the history books, we're surprised by some of his minor league tidbits, get side tracked about Zane Smith and Moises Alou, relive TC's stints in Houston and Anaheim, including a notable brawl in Montreal, and his relationship with Paul DePodesta. As we find more "wow" facts about TC, we decide to do some fantasy booking, and wonder what would have happened if Terry Collins had managed the '06 Mets or '06 Dodgers. We look at the early days of TC's Mets run, the tough in-game choices he had to make, and end by debating whether he belongs in the Mets Hall of Fame before Bobby Valentine.

If you’re a baseball person, you know Bobby V. But even if you don’t keep up with America’s pastime, there’s still a chance you know this week’s guest for a few reasons: as an ESPN analyst, a restaurant owner in southern Connecticut, or most notably, a “master of disguise.” We are honored to have Bobby Valentine on our show this week to reflect on a career with a plethora of accomplishments. We recall Bobby’s days at USC - from rooming with future Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner, to his time in the Sigma Chi Fraternity with 3-time Super Bowl Champion coach Mike Holmgren. Bobby reminisces on nearly stealing home his Major League debut, playing a role in 3 of Nolan Ryan’s no-hitters, and his “catcher’s balk” disguise incident in 1999 as the manager of the New York Mets. We break down Bobby’s opinions on the future of the game of baseball and the inevitable universal designated hitter rule. We shift gears to chat with Bobby about his role as the Athletic Director at Sacred Heart University, the gaps he had to fill going from professional to collegiate athletics, and what’s to come for the SHU Pioneers in the near future. BEERS: Vermont is known for its skiing scene and scenic outdoor activities, but its craft beer market is one of the best in New England. Will tries Big Bang by Foley Brothers Brewing - an unfiltered single IPA with some of our favorite hops, he thinks this is one you should have on the list. Jake goes back to his Connecticut roots and reviews a classic - Sea Hag by New England Brewing Company. A staple at any gathering and a great contribution for a friend’s party, Sea Hag is one of the most crushable IPA’s in the region. BUSINESS: Texas suffers its worst nightmare: after basically freezing over, there are still millions without power, thousands in need of shelter, and hundreds dead. Why wasn’t Texas prepared for a winter storm in the same way that the Northeast or Midwest would’ve been? We break down some potential factors, and look into some stocks you might be able to take advantage of...if they can make it out of this mess alive. BALLS: San Diego Padres standout shortstop Fernando Tatis inks himself a HUGE deal for $340 million over 13 years.

Dustin Pedroia joins Section 10 for the first time ever in the same week that he announced his retirement after a phenomenal career with the Boston Red Sox. Today with Pedey we talk when he knew it was time to call it quits, how much trouble he had trying to recover from surgeries, physically not being able to do a one-game sendoff like David Wright did with the Mets, not caring enough to use social media, how much teammates appreciated his intense preparation over the years, a hilarious story from 2013 when Larry Lucchino lost a bet and had to buy Pedroia a brand new car, why he feels bad for Jeff Francis after roasting him during the 2007 World Series, if he thinks he should have his number retired in Boston, who would be on the receiving end of his first pitch on a Pedey Day at Fenway, revisiting the story of David Ortiz not knowing his name was Dustin with an added element where Pedey felt like he always had to do David's home work on pitchers, why the 2007 team doesn't get enough credit, Bobby Valentine actually not being that bad, an injury people didn't know he went through in 2013, how much Boston Strong meant to that team, full breakdowns of the Papi ALCS grand slam and World Series speech, behind the scenes for that brutal last game of the 2011 season, how much his teammates had his back in 2018, riding Brock to go for the cycle in Yankee Stadium, and close with a very touching thank you to all Red Sox fans. After the Pedroia interview we break down his career, why his number needs to be retired, and why we will never see anyone like him again on the Red Sox. Enjoy!
In this episode, we look at the early days of Omar Minaya's career, including becoming the first ever Hispanic General Manager in MLB history.

We explore some of his notable signings, trades, and early challenges all the way through the end of the '08 season. Bonus commentary as the duo starts the podcast recapping the busy week that was in Mets Land, including the beef between Uncle Stevie and Barstool, Daniel Murphy's retirement and yes, the return of Omar Minaya to the NY Mets! #LGM
