Ed calls each of the other nine owners in the famous Lyons Legends fantasy baseball keeper league to see how they feel heading into the 2013 season. Don thinks a playoff run is automatic, Pat sees his prospects as building blocks towards a 2015 championship, and Lorenz offers his colorful commentary.
In the final installment of the three-part podcast, Ed and Chas Straface break down the American League. After being recorded back in April, the views offered on the potential for disaster in Los Angeles and success in Boston seem all the more perceptive. Plus, the guys wonder just how awful the Astros might be, both now and in the future.
Ed calls fellow CCS contributor Ty Kane to discuss the awful start to the 2013 season for both the Cubs and the Sox. The guys wonder if there is a reason to keep the faith, and do their best to find some silver linings. Ultimately, they decide that Alex Rios and Jorge Soler (and his anger issues) give them a reason to believe.
In part two, Ed and Scott talk about potential Cubs trades, Yu Darvish, Mike Trout, and Ed tells the story of when he met Bryce Harper.
In part one of two, Ed takes a leaf out of Matthew Berry and Nate Ravitz's book and calls his friend Scott Clay to place some board bets on a wide variety of baseball-related topics. Recorded only a few weeks ago, Ed's stupidity shines as he is already wrong about Johan Santana throwing over 142 innings, as well as Chase Headley's potential numbers following his thumb injury.
Ed calls his friends Don and Pat to discuss the release of Keith Law's and Baseball America's Top 100 MLB Prospects lists. The guys go through their over- and under-rated picks and get into the philosophy of major league franchise development.
Ed calls his friend Alison, who recounts her unique experience of working as a suite hostess in the Superdome during the Super Bowl. Actually, not just a suite; THE suite. She discusses her awkward conversation with Jamie Foxx, scrambling to find enough Cristal champagne to keep Busta Rhymes content, and being so busy that she didn't even know the power had gone out. Or who had won the game.
In the second of a mega-three-part podcast, Ed and special guest Chas Straface discuss some changes in the Cubs organization and work their way through the rest of the National League Central.
In the first of a mega-three-part podcast, Ed welcomes special guest Chas Straface to to show to breakdown the National League East and West divisions.
