Episode 392: The Right Jacket
Garrett Richards has been dominant since saying he wasn't used to wearing a jacket, and we love to see that. Today we talk why that A's series wasn't as bad as it's being made out to be for the Sox, the core of this lineup being too good to have extended slumps, the Ice Horse bringing some much-needed energy, knowing when Xander is going to go off based on how upset he was in the postgame presser the night before, why Mookie gets more national attention now vs. when he was in Boston, how many actual "JBJ would have had it" moments there have been this season, how awesome Polar Park looks and credit to them for fitting 95,000 people in there, wanting Jarred Duran to be on the Red Sox ASAP, if we expect Garrett Richards to keep up this pace, a lookahead to this series with the Angels and a full reaction to that fan getting clocked in the face at Coors Field. That and much more. Enjoy!

Episode 391: Still The Best
The Red Sox just won 3 outta 4 in Baltimore and are STILL the best team in Major League Baseball.

We then talk with the VerduGo Red Sox sign guy Greg Martens on his wild stories about getting drunk at games in the 70s and sitting with local celebrities, why he became such a big Verdugo fan, a full breakdown of catching his home run and how special that moment was and why this is all a great sign for this specific Red Sox team.
