Do the Orioles suck? Yes. Did the Sox need to sweep them? Yes...and here we are. Today we talk the very unfortunate but not that surprising news that Chris Sale's 2019 season is likely over, how amazing Rafael Devers has been and where this season is currently ranking among some of the all-time greats, how few current MLB players we would rather have than Raffy Big Scoops right now, why we may have to worry about Mookie Betts potentially getting traded this offseason, and we close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
The Red Sox just beat the hottest team in baseball in a series so we are well on our way to looking at another AL East crown this year. Today we talk Devers being insanely impressive and how he's giving us Pinky Higgins flashbacks, Andrew Cashner very clearly being the closer the Red Sox needed this whole time, just how the Sox will win the AL East this year, "Blakata!" being the worst catchphrase ever, preview this weekend's series with the Orioles and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
Andrew Trashner continues to be miserable for the Red Sox and we've had about enough of the blahness of this team. We break down the Sox disappointing .500 week against teams they need to be beating, look through free agents on the market this offseason to see how we can fix the pitching issues, give a major shoutout to the dude in a Section 10 shirt that had Mike Trout take a pic with him from the dugout, preview the series in Cleveland, have a bunch of random thoughts about random stuff, and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
This season has felt like a never-ending rain delay and last night was no different. Today we talk how brutal it is that the Sox lost an off-day in San Diego to have to finish a game with the damn Kansas City Royals in extra innings, we call Guerin Austin to get her breakdown of how wild the rain was from the dugout last night, talk the odds that this is actually the last season with the Sox for Dave Dombrowski via Dan Shaughnessy's recent article, how the Sox would have to go 31-15 for the rest of the season to have a legit chance to make the postseason, give the Suns a shoutout for dominating Suns Day on NBA TV, how ridiculous the Players Weekend nicknames are for the Red Sox but still give Chavis credit for trying to fix the Ice Horse error, introduce a brand new segment and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
The Red Sox just got swept by the Yankees and have lost 8 games in a row and everything is awful. We open talking about the Suns because this is the best Suns podcast on the planet, we recap how well the livestream went Friday even though the game sucked, and then we recap that miserable series in the Bronx. We're talking how brutal the Sox have been when Sale and Price start, how no realistic deadline move would have prevented this losing streak, how we expected this terrible play from the 2015 team but there being no excuse for a team this talented to lose 8 in a row, and the Sox somehow still having a 2% chance to win the World Series. This is a tough one folks, be sad with us. Go Suns
We will get to how pathetic it is that the Sox made ZERO moves at the deadline in a minute, but in Part II of our sit-down from Curt Schilling's house we talk things that he regrets saying during his playing days, the creation of 'Why Not Us' and which media member that phrase was aimed at, if the 2007 World Series title would have happened without the 2004 team winning it all, revisiting the A-Rod brawl with a breakdown of everything that happened and how much the team hated A-Rod, how much he loves the retirement lifestyle, young pitchers in the game that he helps out now, potentially wanting to rejoin the game as a pitching coach, hardest guys he ever faced and the only two strikeout baseballs he ever saved, and all the aspects that go into being a truly successful pitcher in the majors. We then flip the hell out over the Sox adding NOTHING at the trade deadline, the Astros being the very clear favorite to represent the AL in the World Series now, what we would have tweaked about Rick Porcello's feud with the TVs in the dugout, a brief visit from Willie Colon for Jared to pay him his $1K, and close with some optimism by saying we still think this team will make the Wild Card Game. Enjoy!
Today we have soon-to-be Hall of Famer Curt Schilling on the podcast once again to talk how pissed he is that Jared got a World Series ring, how much his character has been attacked since leaving ESPN, how much he knew about steroids in baseball when he was playing and hints at who was juicing, his current relationship with the Red Sox being bumpy, how he found out about David Ortiz getting shot as it was happening, how much he wants MLB players to be mic'd up during games, his favorite Terry Francona moments and much more (Part II of the interview coming later this week). Outside of the Schilling interview we recap our Live Show over the weekend, talk the madness of that Sox-Yankees series, and look forward to what to expect from Dave Dombrowski and company come Trade Day. Enjoy!

Enjoy!
Our guy Joe Kelly is once again on the podcast today to distract us from the fact that the Red Sox just lost a series to the friggin Orioles. With Jimmy B we talk how different it is playing in LA vs. Boston, how much he meant to the bullpen during that World Series run last year, if there was legitimate doubt to if he would even make the postseason roster, how much easier his day-to-day life is being home in LA, if his big strikeout late in Game 5 of the World Series was the top highlight of his career so far, how much he wanted to strike out Tyler Austin when he faced him again, how the free agency process went, and his favorite moments in Boston with a recap of that fight with the Yankees. Outside of the Kelly interview we talk if the Sox would consider being sellers at the trade deadline, what the hell is wrong with Rick Porcello, Pluto being the fakest thing ever, which relievers the Sox may still have their eye on and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
The Eck vs. Price "feud" is back and we have the solution to end all of this! They should just meet up and do one of those double cheek kiss things. Boom, problem solved. Today we also talk about Andrew Cashner's lackluster debut with the Sox and the obvious reason why he wasn't good, hint at a certain Players' Weekend jersey, break down the ongoing nightmare of a bullpen this team has and how Brandon Workman has had to suffer the most from everyone else sucking and we close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!
Benny Biceps, Benny Buttcheeks, Benny Baseball, Andrew Benintendi makes his Section 10 debut today and it's a gem. Before the Benny interview we talk the end of the Eduardo Nunez era, how significant a move it was for the Sox to add Andrew Cashner and recap that series with the Dodgers and further emphasize how much you need to bunt in that 11th inning scenario. Then we get to our Andrew Benintendi interview where we talk his nicknames and which one he hears the most in the clubhouse, the epic catch he made in the ALCS, his favorite moment of the 2018 postseason that wasn't that catch or the final out, how frustrated he is over his current season, favorite moment from the parade, power ranking the drunkest players at the parade and much more. We then talk the Guerin Austin "drama" with Jared and Steve, recap Jared's experience getting his World Series ring and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!

Enjoy!
The Sox went across the pond and lost both games to the Yankees because this bullpen is absolute garbage. Today we talk everything about the London Series, how the 1st innings and the Sox offense never giving up was cool and that was about it, Yankee fans being the most unoriginal humans on Twitter.com, if we have any new ways to describe how awful this bullpen is, how dumb it is that the Yanks easily acquired Edwin Enchiladas, the Xander All-Star snub being one of the worst snubs ever, if it was the right move for the Suns to sign Ricky Rubio to a $51M deal, pitch a potential upcoming Section 10 wiffle ball tournament, and close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions. Enjoy!

After TC we talk who we want to interview next, Stroman vs. Eck stuff, Saturday's meltdown and more. Enjoy!
The 2019 Red Sox are not the 2018 Red Sox. But when they show us signs of being "back" then we're gonna get excited. So deal with it! Today we give a huge shoutout to our guy Trig for continuing to make us fire Section 10 shirts (buy them on Store.BarstoolSports.com), recap that Twins series and debate how back the Sox are right now, get pissed off that Xander Bogaerts isn't getting enough All-Star voting love, continue to find it fascinating how much Alex Cora drives E-Rod into the ground, confirm that CC Sabathia is fat and that it's ok to be fat, debate why they would make up a report that David Ortiz wasn't the intended target of that shooting, and finish with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions.

The Sox continue their up-and-down season with a walk-off that we think should be banned: The walk-off walk.

Enjoy!
Today is about David Ortiz. We try to wrap our heads around the miserable incident that took place to our hero Big Papi in the DR, give updates on his status, and talk our favorite Papi moments ever to try and brighten up the room a bit. David Ortiz will pull through because he is larger than life. He will come back even stronger from this senseless act. #PapiStrong
The Red Sox just swept the Royals as we predicted but we wanna talk about how phenomenal Chris Sale was on Wednesday. Today we talk the confusing process of loving to watch Vladdy Jr. but then realizing he's in the AL East, how Chris Sale dildoed the Royals lineup for the first Sox shutout since part-time Section 10 producer Brian Johnson in 2017, break down the 4 complete game shutouts in the Section 10 era, predict the Sox were gonna complete the sweep because we're wicked smaht, if we're surprised that the Cubs signed Craig Kimbrel, how cool it would be if the whole team had social media accounts and were actually good at posting, Eddie's Goat Milk taking over the world on Wednesday, the real reason why the Sox drafted Cameron Cannon, a little Hey Arnold and Mickey Kaline talk, and finish with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions.

Yes, we are joined by Matty Backpacks himself today. Before the Backpacks interview we recap that series with the Astros and compare how the Sox rank with Houston heading into June, give Devers some love and debate how dumb it is that that would-be homer hit the roof, and then rip Roberto Osuna for obvious reasons. With Matty Backpacks we talk the origin of his nickname, how his mindset changed going from starting games to now occasionally closing them, recap the best game he's ever pitched, how hard it is to make it in the bigs when you're from the northeast, how everything clicked for the Sox and their bullpen in the postseason last year, figuring out how to pitch at the big-league level, his defining moment as a pro and whether or not he's converted some of his Yankee fan friends over to supporting the Sox.

Enjoy!
Mitch Moreland has single-handedly prevented the Red Sox from starting the season 0-13...and for that we are very grateful. We open talking Moreland's clutchness and how Devers hit the walk-off because it was a school night and he still had a test to study for so he really needed to be home. We then break down the Red Sox ring ceremony, if Chris Davis' hitless streak will end at Fenway this weekend, how ridiculously false that initial claim of a 505-foot homer was Thursday night by Rowdy Tellez (fakest name ever), Sean McDonough getting rowdy during the radio broadcast, and Manny having himself a hell of a day on Tuesday. We close with your phenomenal Down in the DM questions and more. Enjoy!
Rob Manfred tested out this new Extended Spring Training Program with the Red Sox, and even though it was extremely frustrating, we can all agree that the real Opening Day is on Tuesday.

We wrap this gem up with your voicemail questions and Down in the DMs. Enjoy!
By signing Xander Bogaerts to a 6-year extension, the Red Sox have done a great job of distracting us from the fact that they've started the season 1-3. Safe to say we have very mixed feelings on this episode. We open talking what the hell is wrong with the starting rotation, what positives to take out of that brutal series in Seattle, if Matty Backpacks has what it takes to be the closer all season, and what Jared will be up to in Oakland this week. We then break down this lengthy deal for that stud Xander Bogaerts, why the deal won't impact how the Sox pursue Mookie, how surprised we were that it got done now and didn't drag into next offseason, and take a trip down memory lane to talk the other forgettable players that have called themselves Red Sox shortstop over the years.
