Ack and Kiz return for a holiday edition of PFG. Recorded minutes before the Padres traded for Yu Darvish, the guys nevertheless discuss the Blake Snell trade and all the other moves that have been made so far in the offseason, before getting into some speculation on what other moves are to come. They also talk about some hypothetical expansion (that may not be hypothetical much longer) and what type of realignment might be necessary if 2 teams are added. In Baseball Reference Page of the Day, the late great Phil Niekro. Hooray Sports!
Coming off their longest layoff ever, Ack and Kiz make their triumphant return! Unsurprisingly, there is a lot of ground to cover. The guys discuss their takeaways from the 2020 season, including the storylines, the surprise teams who are for real, and memorable individual performances from the whacky 2020 season. In our Baseball Reference Page of the Day, we discuss a should-be Hall of Famer, whom we recently lost, Dick Allen. Hooray Sports!
After an agonizingly long layoff, the public clamoring for the return of Pop Flies and Grounders paid off! Ack and Kiz return with the 62nd installment in the series and discuss all the things that happened since they last convened. The Nats winning the World Series, the Astros scandal, and most importantly…an active Hot Stove Season! The Hall of Famer and original Pudge, Carlton Fisk, is today’s Baseball Reference Page of the Day. Hooray Sports!
Ack and Kiz get together to discuss the PFG AL West curse, birthday boy Manny Ramirez, Derek Dietrich, and more. They talk a couple guys in the later stages of trusting the process, the ridiculous debate on whether or not Major League Baseball should put up more nets to help protect fans in the wake of the heartbreaking Albert Almora scene (19:20), and remember the late great Bill Buckner in Baseball Reference Page of the Day. 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!
On the Christmas episode of PFG Ack and Kiz tell the story of their baseball gift exchanges before getting into the moves that have been igniting the Hot Stove over the last week. In a new segment, the guys do one short term bet and one long term bet on Manny Machado and the Cincinnati Reds. Baseball Reference Page of the Day finishes things off with Andrew McCutchen. Hooray Sports!
