Then (39:04) they draft their favorite responses to a recent viral tweet about the best, worst, and weirdest beliefs about baseball.

Great, fun episode as always! A really great and nuanced take on Bauer that made me feel less crazy after taking the plunge into the comments section on Ben’s (also great and nuanced!) piece. I also appreciated mention of Luba’s icky involvement in Bauer’s antics. I don’t think that’s touched on enough.
