Rank #1: Episode 8: Rick Hahn

Podcast cover
Read more

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).

The crew goes to HQ in NYC for the big announcement. We open with Big Apple observations followed by an exclusively non-exclusive interview with RLR Executive Producer Big Cat to break down the ins and outs of what to expect from Red Line Radio now that it's aboard the Barstool pirate ship. The crew then goes deep on all things Khalil Mack and why it might be the best trade, ever, of all time with serious implications on postseason expectations. Carl goes off on why Kyle Hendricks is back, Dave pumps/blows Northwestern football (again) while Chief and Eddie remind you that the best Bears talk from now and til forever will be right here on Red Line Radio. And last but not least, as always, voicemails 224-544-9194.

Rank #6: ESPN 1000's Silvy + 1st Place Bears

Podcast cover

The Bears are alone in first place and the boys are here to rub the world's best defense in your face. Never mind the quarterback problems, this is Chicago Bears football of course the quarterback is the only question mark. Fortunately Eddie is here to be your spiritual guide as you manage your Mitch Trubisky expectations. On the north side of town, the Cubs are still in first place. Silvy from ESPN 1000 joins the boys to talk October expectations while Carl predicts a 16-inch softball style lineup for the October Cubs. Chief gets his first full Hawks monologue, and it's loaded with names no one else can pronounce or spell. But's he's all fuckin jacked up with optimism and that's GOOD NEWS for Red Line Radio. 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 #7: Winter Is Here

Podcast cover
Read more

The boys are still picking up the pieces from the Bears Eagles game. Fortunately, Nagy and Pace had a joint press conference Monday that Eddie breaks down in full detail. There are some major observations regarding Cody Parkey's future, Chuck Pagano, long-term planning and what everything means for the 2019 Bears. Spoiler Alert: Eddie thinks 2019 is going to be a special season. From there, White Sox Dave goes full MLB Insider on the Manny Machado saga, even calling Barstool Hubbs in the mothership NYC office to get the Yankees' side of MLB Free Agency. It should be no surprise that Hubbs is as frustrated as all of us. Carl then gives his fastest 5 minutes on the Chicago Cubs including a weird obsession with new Cubs Front Office "strategist" Craig Breslow aka the smartest man in baseball. Chief follows with some unfortunate realities: the Hawks are sellers and everyone is available not wearing 88 or 19. In a strange twist, the guys follow that up with some extended Bulls talk after Carl took the weekend to watch back-to-back losses against the Warriors and Jazz. Things are ugly on Madison right now but Barstool Chicago is here to get through it all. Also included, Grab Bag and Beefs because it's Red Line Radio don't forget to have a couple beefs.

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

Rank #10: Kris Bryant + Cup Snakes

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #11: Bears Lose + Electric Chair Review + AJ Pierzynski

Podcast cover
Read more

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 #13: Six Touchdown Passes. Six.

Podcast cover

The Redline Radio boys are STRUGGLING after Carl's wedding weekend. It's an All Gas No Brakes Podcast, but they are running on fumes. RLR pulls back the curtain and unveils a new segment called "White Sox Daze" to let the listeners in on all the eyeroll inducing instances that occur when you're working with White Sox Dave.  The ONLY thing giving them life this week was that Monster of the Midway Defense and Mitch Trubisky showing signs of life. Eddie is bringing the noise, the energy, and the analysis of the Bears' blow out of the Tampa Bay Bucs. With the offense now showing real signs of life heading into the bye week and the team in first place, the guys reset their expectations for the rest of the year and circle a few dates on the schedule including games with the Patriots and the Rams.  Carl breaks down what went wrong with the Cubs down the stretch and the pickle they're in now with the Brewers in Game 163 and looks ahead to a potential Wild Card showdown and NLDS matchup with Milwaukee.  Eddie introduces a new segment "would you buy him a beef" where the guys discuss Jimmy Butler and where his reputation is within the City of Chicago. "Buy A Beef" leads to Chief going on a rant about Brandon Saad and his lack of passion so far in his second stint with the Blackhawks. The RLR boys close the show with another editon of 'Big Shoulders of the Week" to determine who had the brightest moments in Chicago sports.  ALL GAS NO BRAKES

Happy New Year and thanks to everyone for your support. We put a bow on 2019 in this week's episode with heavy Bears and college football. Chief breaks down the Seabrook saga while White Sox Dave takes a victory lap (kinda) on all the new White Sox free agents.

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.

Rank #16: Big Cat + Bears Disgust

Podcast cover
Read more

Big Cat joins the Red Line boyz to breakdown the most disappointing loss Chicago Bears fans have suffered since week 1 of this year. Not a long time, but still remarkably soul crushing. We have first place expectations, and we will honor those expectations regardless of their validity. Eddie and Big Cat assign blame, talk through their issues and help us move on to New England because God knows the Bears need everyone's help. Big Cat also helps the boys get through some Bulls expectations for the year, and we can all agree a successful year includes a lottery pick, post play development and some flashes from Zach Lavine. In other words, it's very very bad. But not all teams in the UC are destined for misery. The Hawks look PHENOMENAL and Chief is going to explain why that does not apply to Brandon Saad and why he will not be buying him a beef. Carl and Dave round out playoff observations on Chris Sale sucking and the new Cubs hitting coach. Other segments include Carls Cornucopia (a grab bag of Carl questions for the guys), Big Shoulders, Buy him a Beef? and other stuff. Thank you TROPICAL BROS and THE ATHLETIC  for making this episode happen (PROMO = REDLINE).

The boys are delighted to present Rick Hahn week, a sacred tradition at RLR where WSD does a face to face with his best friend and White Sox general manager Rick Hahn. In and around that amazing interview, the boys recap St. Paddy's, prep for a March Madness party in Wrigley, break down the Hawks late season resurgence and new Bears roster moves while undergoing the stark realization that Chicago is officially a Destination City for all professional athletes outside the NBA. After that Carl puts up some counter-logic on why the Cubs had a big offseason and they need to start playing baseball pronto. Afterwards there's a brief grabbag, voicemails, beefs and big shoulders. Special thanks to title sponsor Miller Lite as well as our Best Friend Rick Hahn for making this week a special one. ALL GAS. NO BRAKES.
