Kevin Malone, the former general manager for the Montréal Expos and Los Angeles Dodgers, joins the boys to talk about Larry Walker’s Hall of Fame induction, how he ended up with the Expos and that time he drafted a catcher named Tom Brady out of Junípero Serra High School in San Mateo, California, who just so happened to grow up to be the greatest quarterback of all-time.
Also, Kevin’s successor in Los Angeles, Dan Evans, shares his thoughts and insight on the MLB’s ongoing sign stealing scandal.
Jay Jaffe, author of The Cooperstown Casebook, joins the boys to talk about the 2020 Hall of Fame class, breaks down whether or not Derek Jeter goes in unanimously (and if Larry Walker goes in at all), looks ahead to future classes and what Curt Schilling’s chances are moving forward.
Baseball historian and author Ralph Carhart joins the boys to talk about the incredible journey of The Hall Ball (and how that turned into book deal), what prompted his new website Bent Knees and Raised Fists, shares his plans for the upcoming 100th anniversary of The Negro Leagues and, for some reason, the extraordinary luck of The Baseball Brit, Joey Mellows.
Tim Mead, the newly-minted president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, joins the boys to talk about his forty years with the Anaheim Angels organization and his favorite memories while working for the team, how he got the gig in Cooperstown, his favorite piece in the museum and whether or not he’ll try and get Albert Pujols to wear an Angels cap on his HOF plaque.
