Ack and Kiz return for Episode 61 to discuss the Christian Yelich injury (bummer), the award races, and the playoff hunt in both leagues. Later on, the guys discuss the 18th anniversary of 9/11 and the baseball connection with it from 2001 and to this day. Fittingly, Mike Piazza closes things out in Baseball Reference Page of the Day. Hooray Sports.
The trade deadline has passed and there are no more deals to be made. Ack and Kiz are back to talk about every deadline move: who was involved, how it affects the playoff picture, how it changes a team’s future. A quick foray into Baseball Aesthetics brings up the many throwbacks of the last couple weeks and Baseball Reference Page of the Day covers Doyle Alexander. Go Bullets and Hooray Sports!
Ack and Kiz welcome on writer Joe Rivera from The Sporting News and hit on a multitude of subjects from the most interesting teams in the early season to this year’s crop of rookies. After discussing Indy ball and getting romantic about baseball, the guys hear some of Joe’s Mantle Moments and get schooled on Star Wars. Joe gives a shoutout to his youth in Baseball Reference Page of the Day by choosing the most underrated member of the 90s/2000s Yankees, Bernie Williams. Hooray Sports!
