Episode Forty-Nine: Korean Baseball

Thanks for listening to this week’s episode of the Baseball Together Podcast, baseball family! Make sure you listen all the way to the end this week, because we have a special discount code for you!

There was a bunch going on this week, so Brig and Brad had a lot to go over. So, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported that there is at least one MLB team that has told its front office to cut payroll for the 2021 season (1:16). Along those lines, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove says he doesn’t believe players should have to take a pay cut during the 2020 season simply because there will not be any fans in the stands, because they “don’t get a pay raise for sell outs.” (5:48) Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper believes that MLB should allow its players to play in the Olympics, specifically the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo (8:56). Finally, the MLB draft has been set on five rounds, but we still don’t know when it’ll happen (14:00).

The guys spend the rest of the time fawning over the KBO (Korean Baseball League), because it’s the only live baseball showing on American TV. They start by breaking down some rules and cultural differences between the KBO and MLB (21:25), then give a quick breakdown of each KBO team (47:32).

Episode Forty-Eight: Fantasy Pitching

Thank you for checking out this week’s episode of the Baseball Together Podcast, baseball family! Brig and Brad were able to dig up a bunch of stories to cover this week. It sounds like Manny wants to be Manny in Taiwan. Manny Ramirez appears to be headed to Asia to continue playing baseball (1:44). Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez seem to be throwing their names in the hat as serious contenders to buy the New York Mets. They’ve started assembling an investment group and have a billionaire to fit the majority of the bill (4:41). Rob Manfred and MLB are discussing divisional realignment and teams finishing spring training at their home parks. Brig and Brad try to decide if this is an actual plan or just another “idea” (8:01). Finally, they share the unfortunate news that Trey Mancini of the Baltimore Orioles has stage 3 colon cancer (14:15) and the Little League World Series will be canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic (15:57).

Before the guys shared their games of the week, Brig brought back another memorabilia item that Brad has a particular interest in (18:37). Then Brad recounts his game of the week in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series between the Oakland A’s and LA Dodgers. Brig’s game of the week was Game 6 of the 2009 World Series with the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees (24:05). The guys close out the episode by selecting their fantasy pitching rotations (41:14).
