Chin Music, Episode 38: Your Go-To Summer Sandwich

The season is over, but Chin Music rolls on, as FanGraphs’ very own Ben Clemens joins me to talk about baseball and other things. We begin by reviewing the 2021 World Series, including both teams’ in-game strategies, before moving on to the offseason. We touch on this year’s free agent class and the looming labor strife, before finishing the segment with a tribute to Buster Posey. Then, we’re joined by special guest Robert Ford, the Houston Astros radio play-by-play man, who discusses the World Series from his unique point of view, while also touching on his fascinating career path and his involvement with The Black Play-by-Play Broadcaster Grant and Scholarship Fund, which is working to bring greater diversity to broadcast booths. Then it’s your emails on player consistency, team complexes in the DR and why baseball is the best sport, followed by some talk of trashy television and the first installment of Ben’s Recipe Corner.

As always, we hope you enjoy, and thank you for listening.

Music by Dr. Colossus.
