Author K.P. Wee joins the boys to talk about his book The Case of Barry Bonds in the Hall of Fame, why he wasn’t surprised by the 2022 Hall of Fame election, whether or not Bonds was really the bad guy people think he is and what is it about random players like Tom Candiotti and John Cangelosi that he appreciates.
Professional wrestler Colt Cabana joins the boys to talk about his podcast “Wrestling Anonymous”, that time he went to (not really...but kind of?) a Cosby Sweater Convention, how and why he became Chicago’s biggest Kirby Puckett fan, getting stiffed by Hank Aaron and witnessing Wade Boggs going toe-to-toe with wrestler Balls Mahoney.
Jay Jaffe, author of The Cooperstown Casebook and senior writer at FanGraphs, returns to talk to the boys about the 2022 Hall of Fame class and what future candidates he’s looking forward to covering the most, what we can expect for pitchers (and relievers) on future ballots, who he thinks might be the next unanimous Hall of Famer and unwittingly names Shawn’s favorite prog rock album.
Painter extraordinaire Graig Kreindler returns to talk to the boys for an "agenda-free" episode of the podcast, answers listener tweets, breakdown Toto's greatest hit(s) and, of course, share what would be in his Beindler...if you had one.
Marilyn Hetrick and daughter Elizabeth Ronie join the boys to celebrate the indelible life of supercollector (and all-around awesome dude) Bill Hetrick.
Please consider making a donation in Bill's name to the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Museum, the Negro League Baseball Museum or the Holy Savior Catholic Church Building Fund.
As an added bonus, we remember the time Bill, co-founder of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, joined the boys to talk about his massive collection of autographed baseballs, spending time with the likes of Warren Spahn, Vin Scully, Hank Aaron, the New York Mets famed “Million Dollar Outfield” and, of course, those late night trips to IHOP with The Famous San Diego Chicken.
