Episode 34.5: An Interview With Former MLB Pitcher Brian Bannister

Welcome to Barbecast 34.5! Jake and I are both very busy with final papers, exams, and other fun academic stuff, so we can’t give you a full barbecast this week. What we do have is a spectacular interview with former major league pitcher Brian Bannister. We talked to Brian for over an hour about a plethora of baseball-related things, including…

  • His rookie year
  • Being on the same team as Pedro Martinez (29:15)
  • Playing towards the end of the PED era
  • Why Barry Bonds was the best (42:10)
  • Who Brian owned in the big leagues and who owned him
  • Brian’s disastrously hilarious experience against Team Cuba
  • His unique retirement story
  • His current favorite teams

…and more. It was great, and we really appreciate Brian taking the time to chat with us. You can and should follow him on Twitter @RealBanny.

We honestly don’t know when the next full Barbecast will be, but we hope this is enough in the meantime. Thanks for listening <3

    “There’s no reason [the Mets] shouldn’t have won the world series [in 2006]” Yeah, thanks for bringing it up again, Brian. That thought has been set on repeat in my brain for 7 years 6 months 1 week and 2 days. Zero playoff games since then.

    Terrific interview guys!… The Pedro story was the hardest I’ve laughed in a long time.
