Despite the best efforts of the Mariners and Frontier Airlines, John, Kate, and Matthew have returned to deliver you the hard-hitting analysis you deserve. We join in the lovely Lower Queen Anne bar Solo, which played an amiable host to our record.
0:00 - 9:00 The Mariners have been hot trash on a tin roof! We discuss our various methods of (dis)engagement with the team and John outlines why you should never fly Frontier Airlines if you can avoid it.
9:00 - 16:05 Matthew goes out on a limb that Marco Gonzales is better than Albert Pujols. We dig in deep on how the defense and rotation could not be a worse pair.
16:05 - 25:10 Kate is thankful the Mariners are not the Rangers, and reminds us this is what rebuilds are. We go hard on our favorite non-Mariners to watch and put together a Home Run Derby for dads. Matthew re-ups his vendetta against Mark Canha and slaps a nickname on Josh Bell.
25:10 - 28:30 Matthew enters his first fugue state of the pod while John and Kate make their case for being a draft/prospects person. It's fun, we promise!
28:30 - 36:20 GAME TIME. Matthew hosts 'Draft Prospect or 90s Pop Star' and Kate wipes the floor with John, as she is trivia master.
36:20 - 53:40 Draft Talk! John and Kate nerd out on their faves (pitchers Daniel Espino and Matthew Allan, as well as OF Jordan Brewer in particular) and address a few rumors on Seattle's surprising possible shift towards prep shortstops in the first round. We are unimpressed by Volpe's T-Rex swing.
53:40 - END We address the ways covering the Mariners has changed our relationship with baseball/the Mariners! Kate also outlines the fine art of heckling and we come to some surprisingly positive airport takes.
