Things to listen for in this episode of the OTM Podcast:

  • The part where Matt forgets what he's saying mid-sentence
  • The approximately twelve seconds of dead air that follow that part
  • The lively discussion of whether or not Matt should edit that part out so as not to look like an idiot
  • Matt looking like an idiot
  • Other stuff

Yes, it's all baseball all the time except when it isn't on the OTM Podcast.

But to get down to it, in this episode Matt is joined by the great Sam Miller from Baseball Prospectus and the wonderful Jason Wojciechowski from Baseball Prospectus, The Platoon Advantage, Beaneball.org, Mountain Goat Corner, The Funny Hat Blog, Souping It Up, and of course, Coasters.org. The gentlemen in question are yammered at a bit by the host and before getting down to the business of discussing the following:

  1. Labeling starting pitchers as number ones or number twos (good? bad?)
  2. The Red Sox rough start
  3. Josh Reddick

At that point Jason has to go (he has to watch his cat break things) so Matt and Sam carry on and discuss...

  1. ... the best teams in the AL ...
  2. ... with a single detour towards the Pittsburgh Pirates who very deliciously can't hit.

It's a relatively speedy, extraordinarily exciting, entirely un-edited, and more than a little embarrassing episode of the Over The Monster Podcast!
