‘The Full Go' begins with a wellness check on the game of baseball, and it's not good (03:34). As we sit on the verge of regular-season games being canceled, Jason tries to picture not only what baseball will look like in 2022 but beyond that. The lockout has already deprived baseball fans of a hot stove season and the anticipation of spring, but is the game strong enough to withstand a work stoppage in a post-COVID world (12:20)? Ringer staff writer Zach Kram has had a close eye on the Bulls this season, and he sits down with Jason Goff to look at some of the big-picture issues facing the team down the stretch (19:35). Are the Bulls' scoring options good enough to withstand an opponent's game plan in a playoff series (22:50)? How will Zach LaVine's back hold up (34:30)? And can DeMar DeRozan carry this team beyond the end of the regular season (37:05)? Plus, what does Zach think about the Ja Morant–Derrick Rose comparisons that began to surface this weekend (40:44)? As February comes to an end, the Bulls are still sitting near the top of a very strong Eastern Conference. Yes, there are a lot of issues the Bulls need to rectify before we can talk about them as the favorites in the East, but Jason explains why it's important that Bulls fans appreciate where the team is after all it's been through (46:05).

‘The Full Go' returns following a disastrous weekend for the Chicago Bulls. Not only did they drop the first two games of their road trip, but they've lost Alex Caruso for at least six to eight weeks. Jason addresses Grayson Allen's dirty play and why the Bulls may continue to be pushed around by opponents (02:34). Zach Kram wrote a piece for The Ringer outlining why the Bulls may be just one piece away, but who could that piece be? Zach joins the show to discuss possible trade targets, the emergence of Coby White, and whether or not the Bulls are a year ahead of schedule (16:31).

If you frequent The Ringer, you know his work, either written for their NBA and MLB departments or as part of the production team on the popular "Binge Mode" podcast Zach Kram joins the Late Night Happy Hour, and we start with the NBA game of the night, with Utah and Philly, two teams vying for seeding and respect. Philly wins, behind a monster game for Joel Embiid. Is this the year where the huge talent and big numbers translate into something bigger? What's different about Embiid this year? And what's different about hoops? What does the next generation look like? Kram makes a great point about how this is the first generation of kids who grew up watching shooters like Steph Curry or Damian Lillard, and bigs who regularly shoot - and make - 3's like Karl Anthony Towns. The game is only going to evolve more into a pace/space/skill direction. We talk All Star controversies. Why is Mike Conley not heading to Atlanta (at least not yet)? What should the NBA be doing to make the game better, and get more worthy players involved? What about the league's refereeing problem? What might fix it? We then dive into "nerd tv," specifically around Star Wars and Marvel. Why do these projects seem to translate so much better to TV, especially when looking at Star Wars? Because, dirty little secret, most of the movies kind of suck. Finally, we look at Fernando Tatis, Jr., and why he's arguably the most important player in baseball, even if he's not the best.
