Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

Opening Day is today, which means a bunch of middle-aged sportswriters get to put on their propeller beanies and clap their hands like trained seals and cry out YAY BASEBALL! to a relatively indifferent public. But I promise not to meh my way through this somewhat half-assed preview to the season. As someone who enjoys both the outdoors AND alcoholism, I support the playing of baseball. I would also like some clear direction as to which teams will be the most fun to watch (oh god, it’s the Yankees isn’t it?), and which players will mash some dingers for my casual amusement (again, they’re probably all Yankees). Where can the most pleasure be found this MLB regular season? Folks, that is the subject of this week’s Deadcast.

Luckily, there is more. Roth and I also answer YOUR Funbag questions about basketbloggers, future retirement homes, hamburgers, overlong classic movies, needles, and more! Quite the selection for you, the listener at home.


You can also listen at iHeart Radio, Stitcher, Spotify, NPR One, Apple Podcasts, or GooglePlay. And don’t forget to email us tips and/or general complaints at Have fun out there.
