08. The David Freese (or Nelson Cruz 😩) Game, w/ Ryan Page
And the Pitch
Ryan Page is a musician (Bad Dads) and podcaster (Beatles vs. Stones) among his fatherly and professional pursuits. (Facts: I’m a member of both that band and that podcast). We talk about sad fans in heroic moments, Ray Allen’s Three, a dummy guide to Rangers' history, Pudge’s coolness, clutch David Freese, watching sports with the kinds of people who say stuff like “sportsball,” whether Nelson Cruz should have caught that ball, Josh Hamilton’s story, hating Lance Berkman, loving Albert Pujols, Nolan’s blank face, nerd GMs, RIP Charlies Watts, holy moly Bill Wyman.

Mollywhop Tuesday: They're Winning! Edition - Is this sustainable? / Should they bring back Nelson Cruz? + other potential acquisitions
The Ian Furness Show
It's a Mollywhop Monday, only this time, on a Tuesday. A few weeks ago we had an emergency session amidst the team's collapse. Now they seem to be dominating; five games above .500 and just 3.5 games out of a wild card spot. Is this sustainable? The trade deadline is fast approaching and the M's may be in the running to bring Nelson Cruz back to town. Should they make the deal, adn what other acquisitions could they feasibly make before the deadline? We discuss all of that and more with Chris Crawford and Nathan Bishop.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled episodes to remind you that it's times like these (week-long-elections) that you should really be calling up your designated hitter, your Nelson Cruz, off the bench for a rage hook-up. Life changing.
As the mid point of the 2020 MLB season flew by us, Dave and Woody sit down to discuss the Twins' would be all stars if the game were to be played this year, take a look at the trade deadline action around the league, and the deadline inaction our hometown Twins participated in, and finish up by taking a look at the pitching and hitting positives and negatives as we close out the regular season and head into the fall.
