Rank #4: "I'm Not An Idiot" - Matt Nagy
Soul Crushing Week 8 loss to the Chargers. We're here trying to pick up the pieces but holy shit is it hard. The Bears should have blown the Chargers' doors off but instead it's a brutal loss. Matt Nagy had a head scratching presser after that the boys break down in detail. HUT HUT HIKE.

Rank #5: Rick Hahn + March Madness
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.

Rank #6: 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 #7: 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.

Rank #8: Episode 2.8: David Ross Cancelled So We Got White Sox Top Scout Nick Hostetler
Carl Dave and Ozzie are joined by White Sox #1 Scout and Huge Fan Of The Program, Nick Hosteler. Segments with Nick include Who Are You Picking 4th Overall, Glory Holez Glory Dayz and Over/Unders You Probably Shouldn't Answer. Carl and Dave also make a hard sell on Nick to add low-cost depth to the scouting department, but not before Carl has a bonafide meltdown about the Cubs' slow start. 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 #9: 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 #10: ESPN 1000's Silvy + 1st Place Bears
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 #11: Winter Is Here
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.

Rank #12: Red Line Radio Episode 3 - All Gas No Brakes: Bears 15-1?
The Red Line boyz have a little extra bounce in their step this week after watching the Bears DISMANTLE Russell Wilson and the once great Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. The Bears defense is back to its rightful Bad Boy status while Mitchy Dual Threat Trubisky proves all the Patrick Mahaolmes Enthusiasts that a Win is a Win is A Win. Eddie and Chief take you through all the Bears highlights before letting Carl and Dave drag their baseball ballz all over the Cubs playoff talk. Fortunately it's never too early to start talking White Sox B-side Free Agency so Dave covers that too. Chief glazes the episode with some in-person observations from the Hawks first official scrimmage, which is very nice. And of course, voicemails 224-544-9194. #AllGasNoBrakes

Rank #13: Big Cat + Bears Disgust
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).

Rank #17: Red Line Radio Episode 2: Was It Over When The Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?
The boyz are here to face the music in the wake of getting tea bagged by Aaron Rodgers on national television. There's no time for crying though because Chicago is in the middle of a Super Bowl run (last time the Bears went 15-1? 1985) and soon to be a deep October run. Or something like that. White Sox Dave has PTSD following the Michael Kopech Tommy John surgery announcement, which is better than how Eddie is faring after Coach Nagy's disappearance in Sunday night's second half. Chief does his best to find a silver lining while Carl repeatedly reminds everyone at all times that the sun will rise tomorrow. Segments include: Red Line Radio official Matt Nagy press conference, White Sox Dave State of the Union, Cubs Counseling with Carl and of course VOICEMAILS 224-544-9194

Rank #18: Big Cat + Performance Reviews + NBA/NHL Free Agency
Good morning afternoon and evening sports fans and far more importantly Happy 4th of July. This week we're joined by Big Cat to talk Bulls offseason moves and do our 6-month performance review process. In and around Big Cat = White Sox Dave hit 91mph AGAIN, Chief is happy with Stan Bowman and there are several reasons to buy the Chicago Bulls stock right now. After, Carl and Dave trade baseball blows in preparation of this week's Crosstown Classic before an abbreviated grabbag and of course awards. All Gas No Brakes.

Rank #19: 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.
