Following up on the previous post here on this website, but for Manga In Your Ears, I went to an NWSL game! Angel City FC v Chicago Red Stars. The Red Stars (my first team, but truth be told, I would support any NWSL team) seemed passive in attack; maybe as a result of no Mal Pugh. And Angel City came out with the 1-0 victory. Great game, always a great experience, and most importantly easy trip to the stadium on the metro. Ban cars. Anyway. Chris (@gokuffy), Chris (@antoniuspius), and I are back to talk about two Twin Peaks things, but first we had a quick chat about Otakon 2022. Then it's The Missing Pieces. Then it's The Return Parts 1-8. Then it's finally time for the second segment with Chris, Ink (@ink_just_ink), Basil (@itsbasiltime), and I where we chat about Tribe Nine. And finally Basil defends his Taiiku Southern Championship against newcomers Nate (@NateMing) and Bill (@wbforeman999), and also we all talk about Hajime no Ippo. It's a long episode. I have some regrets about it. Also apparently I pre-recorded Tribe Nine with intent to post it in a different date than I will, so that explains why it's "November." It is August. Here's a link to the Effectively Wild episode on Blaseball. Listen Show notes: 0:30 - Chris, Chris, and I chat about Otakon for a bit 22:25 - Chris, Chris, and I talk about Twin Peaks: The Missing Piece 35:09 - Chris, Chris, and I talk about Twin Peaks: The Return Parts 1-8 1:46:39 - Chris, Basil, Ink, and I talk about Tribe Nine 2:36:15 - Basil, Nate, Bill, and I talk about Hajime no Ippo 4:05:25 - We talk about Hajime no Ippo: Champion Road 4:14:02 - We talk about Mashiba vs. Kimura 4:17:19 - We take questions about Hajime no Ippo Next time is Twin Peaks: The Return Parts 9-18, PuraOre! ~Pride of Orange~, Sorairo Utility, and BIRDIE WING -Golf Girls' Story-.

After an up-and-down series split in Baltimore, the Yankees came home to the Bronx and took care of business over the weekend against the Tigers. They swept perhaps the worst team in baseball out of town and returned to .500 for the first time since April 12th. This all means that Andrew and Kunj got to have a mostly positive podcast! Isn’t that nice? Giancarlo Stanton has been excelling since being installed as the No. 2 hitter, and Aaron Judge has picked up the pace right behind him, too. The two hosts talked about them, the Yankees’ rest schedules, touch on the Mike Tauchman/Wandy Peralta trade, and then raved about the outstanding recent efforts of Gerrit Cole, Corey Kluber, and the pitching staff, which posted the best ERA and WHIP in the American League for the month of April. Just as we all expected, right? Andrew and Kunj also introduced a new weekly segment: “Meet a Baby Bomber,” a Yankees-focused riff on the “Meet a Major Leaguer” feature from “Effectively Wild.” This will be an effort to get to know more prospects and minor leaguers in the Yankees’ system a little more than folks already do — this week’s selections were No. 4 prospect Oswald Peraza and the other Justin Wilson (a righty reliever). Don’t worry though, the “Yankee and Mitre of the Week” segment isn’t going anywhere. There were some worthy picks. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

This episode of the ECT Pod is one like none you've ever heard before. Not only because Tony is calling in from under a blanket in a closet in Boston for the recording session, and not even only because Eli is doing the audio editing--but also because the actual structure of the episode is a new one, in which the guys conduct a draft. Inspired by Eli's favorite baseball podcast, Effectively Wild, this week Eli and Tony each draft three things that they miss most about in-person events. Next episode in Part 2 of their draft extravaganza (draftaganza?), they'll each draft three things that they most look forward to for the industry when in-person events return.Before they get to drafting, though, the guys talk about event people putting their talents to work doing non-event things (and how maybe if event people were in charge we would have the pandemic under control), Eli's employer's return to racing, and the Chicago Marathon Virtual Experience (and how good it is to be a World Marathon Major).Want to find out what the guys drafted?

What would happen if two statistics-minded outsiders were allowed to run a professional baseball team? It’s the ultimate in fantasy baseball: You get to pick the roster, set the lineup, and decide on strategies -- with real players, in a real ballpark, in a real playoff race. That’s what baseball analysts Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller got to do when an independent minor-league team in California, the Sonoma Stompers, offered them the chance to run its baseball operations according to the most advanced statistics. Lindbergh and Miller applied their number-crunching insights to all aspects of assembling and running a team, following one cardinal rule for judging each innovation they tried: It Has To Work. Ben Lindbergh is a staff writer for “FiveThirtyEight” and, with Sam Miller, the cohost of “Effectively Wild,” the daily “Baseball Prospectus” podcast.
