Before we get started, here are Five Things that Are Better Than The OTM Podcast
2. Water-Skiiing Squirrels
3. My Cat, Mr. Pickles (unless he's peeing on the fridge)
4. World Peace
5. Dirty Water (the Red Sox winning kind, not actual dirty water)
And now Four Things that Are Worse Than The OTM Podcast
1. Actual Dirty Water
2. Paper Cuts
3. Wet Socks
4. Angry Goats At The Petting Zoo That Bite You Even Though You Give Them Little Food Pellets That Look Like Rabbit Turds
The OTM Podcast, you see, resides somewhere in the middle there. We're not quite to the level of Water Skiing squirrels or world peace, but then we're miles ahead of paper cuts and angry goats. I feel it's important to point that out.
With that out of the way, I should tell you about the 33rd Over The Monster Podcast. It's not often the Podcast is graced with two excellent baseball bloggers (beyond the two who normally do the podcast that is), but this week is an exception. Marc's voice is still sketchy thanks to off-season illness, so I (Matt) am joined by Cee Angi, the newest writer here at OTM, and Chip Buck, resident guru at Fire Brand of the AL, the Red Sox blog at ESPN's Sweet Spot network. Of course we're talking Red Sox. We cover the Red Sox off season to date, including the potential moving of reliever Daniel Bard into the rotation, the David Ortiz saga, and whether or not the current iteration of the Red Sox contains any Hall of Famers. Despite a few electrical glitches, it's a thoroughly enjoyable 33rd episode of the Over The Monster Podcast!
