Rank #1: Episode 8: Rick Hahn
Without a doubt the biggest episode we've released to the internet, Dave & Carl talk with the man behind the best offseason a Major League Baseball team has ever had, White Sox General Manager, Rick Hahn.
I'm not going to say Rick divulged organizational secrets and basically guaranteed the Sox would sign Cuban slugger Luis Robert, but I'm also not going to say he didn't.
Chicago White Sox GM, long-time friend of the show, Rick Hahn (3:02); Was Rick making fun of Dave for watching single-A ball in April? (40:12); Reaction to the Cubs series wins against both the Cardinals and Brewers (46:29).

Rank #7: Bears Lose + Electric Chair Review + AJ Pierzynski
The Barstool Chicago boys are absolutely devastated after a soul crushing defeat this weekend. No one saw it coming and there's loads of reaction packed into this week's episode. It's hard to pin blame on one player, so they say, but that doesn't stop us from going through each and every person who should be accountable for that devastating loss. At the same time, the boys do every they can to keep it together and stay big picture. This was the best season for Bears fans arguably in 12 years, arguably since 1985 because of how much fun we had along the way. After that, Carl and Dave do some baseball talk as they get ready for their seasons. Dave brings on good friend of the program AJ Pierzynski who basically injects a shot of life into everyone in the room. AJ is the fucking man as evidence by his 26 minutes with the boys this week. After that they do some mild grabbag, obviously voicemails, beefs, big shoulders before closing with the world debut on Red Line Radio of Imma Buy You A Beef. It's a big week even if it sucks. We're happy to be here with you, holding your proverbial hair as you puke your guts out over this defeat. Stay strong Chicago. We got this.

Rank #10: Kris Bryant + Cup Snakes
The most controversial Red Line Radio to date follows the aftermath of Wrigley Usher LigmaBallSack getting fired for talking Cup Snakes on Dog Walk. And spoiler alert - it's total bullshit. The boys recap the chaos then turn it over to a brief yet insightful interview with future Hall of Famer Kris Bryant. It remains to be seen if the Cubs fire KB for coming on our show much like they did to LigmaBallSack. In and around that, we get an update on the Humboldt Park Gator and a bunch of other shit but honestly does any of that matter with Ligma out of a job? Does Kris Bryant like to cuddle and eat pancakes with his wife? Tune in this week to find out. All Gas No Brakes.

Segments with Nick include Who Are You Picking 4th Overall, Glory Holez Glory Dayz and Over/Unders You Probably Shouldn't Answer.

Finally, Dave and Carl dive into how they kidnapped Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini last week and what that means for the show moving forward.

Rank #12: Bran The Broken
Episode 102 opens with GoT bar bag reactions followed by a new grabbag segment featuring apartment hunting and bachelor parties as the opening topics. Following that, Carl gets real excited about Kyle Hendricks personally addressing his theory about Kyle's historical slow starts on ESPN. You would too. General Cubs talk follows with an emphasis on the Jake Arrieta / Yu Darvish storyline. Opposite that, WSD talks everyone into the White Sox being a playoff contender. Like actual, real playoffs. Carl & Eddie then briefly recap a trip to NYC's new HQ before going deep on what the Bulls can do at 7 while Chief considers a former UCLA standout against Eddie's wishes. Chief then makes a bold request - tapping into Eddie's black magic for the #3 pick in the NHL draft. After that WSD debuts the first ever Cut, Start, Statue segment that does better than expected if we're being honest. Naturally beefs follow but no voicemails. What the fuck? 224-544-9194. Thank you Miller Lite, Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Roman, Hello Fresh and SeatGeek. We love you.

Rank #15: Chicago Bears Captain Kyle Long
The Red Line boys are back after going through another weekend closer to normal life. The Conference Championships on Sunday were down right amazing and we're here to debate who lost the worst: Bears, Saints or Chiefs. We then follow it up with an outstanding interview with Bears' Captain, Kyle Long to give his first interview since the Bears lost. Spoiler Alert: he's moving on from the loss with a lot of anticipation towards starting the 2019 campaign. Naturally we left in shock and awe as we always do when talking to Chicago Bear greats. Kyle Long is no exception and NBD he invites us over for a pool party. After that, Carl goes through the Cubs convention festivities this weekend including a story about how he accidentally got hammered at Don Shula's steakhouse in the Sheraton Hotel. After that, Dave updates the crew on Manny Machado, virtually saying he is coming to the White Sox without the WSD scoop city stamp of approval. Chief follows to announce that the Hawks are officially dead but not really because there's a non-zero chance, whatever the fuck that means. There's some beefs, voicemails, and a very light grabbag to close out the show. We're still licking our wounds as we look to baseball season. Oh PS the Bulls suck.

We close with a new yet monstrously important segment: Big Shoulders Of The Week, an award voted on by the listeners based on 4 submissions from Carl, Dave, Eddie and Chief and one listener submission Tuesday after the show drops. This week it's Hendricks, Hawk, McManus and Lauri in that order. Listen in and follow along on Twitter and of course Barstool Sports dot com to get a piece of the action #AllGasNoBrakes

Rank #19: Tiger Woods + Jon Snow + ASU Head Coach Tracy Smith
The Red Line boys are delighted to be back this week after the best Sunday in the history of recorded history. And rightfully so there's plenty to talk about: Tiger, Game of Thrones, White Sox Dave doing the Roman ad read... it's a loaded show. Elsewhere, Chief/Eddie/WSD tease their day with Pat Fitzgerald and Northwestern Football last week while rehashing their first taste of organized football drills in about 15 years. After that Carl and Dave bring on very good friend of the program and national baseball icon, Tracy Smith, head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devil Baseball Team. He rips on White Sox Dave while sharing some pretty cool stories. The interview ends with him calling out WSD to a homerun derby explicitly saying "I will crush you." Elsewhere Chief talks Carl and Dave out of going Russian with the #3 overall pick in the NHL draft but it's a hard sell. Now that it's baseball season they really want to play dirty. There's one voicemail, 3 beefs and your standard slate of good natured ad reads. Thanks to Miller Lite, SeatGeek, Roman, PolicyGenius and Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for making tonight's episode happen. AG...
