Ack and Kiz return to discuss some unlikely starting pitchers who are dominating baseball, the Minnesota Twins, and (incredibly) the final “offseason” signings. After the guys talk about some draft picks of years past, Ack sits down with Tyler Jennings of Diamond Digest to go through the 2019 draft and some of his favorite picks. Baseball Reference Page of the Day closes things out featuring Bernard Gilkey. 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!
In their very first episode presented by Diamond Digest, Ack and Kiz discuss the debuts of Guerrero, Canning, Senzel, and Kieboom comparing them to guys like Tatis and Alonso who’ve been up since opening day. Cody Bellinger may have just had the best April ever, the Indians are in trouble, and the Rays are good. After giving out this week’s bets the guys get to a fun Baseball Reference Page of the Day with Mike Cameron. Hooray Sports!
Ack and Kiz are back and ready to roll on Opening Day of the 2019 baseball season. Extension season is in full swing as Free Agency seems to have changed dramatically (some teams seem to understand this more than others). The guys give their previews and predictions for the upcoming season before turning back the clock while discussing the origins of Pop Flies and Grounders. The show closes with Ichiro as the Baseball Reference Page of the Day. Hooray sports!
