THANK YOU THE FANS

To whomever reads this,

We here at the BBQ started this baseball season with approximately 17 twitter followers. Four of those people were close friends and one was my mother. So we basically had 12 followers, 9 of which HAD to be Twitter bots. We were averaging 10 page views a day.

This baseball season has been the most fun we’ve ever had in regards to baseball. Being able to participate in nincompoopery with all of you was an experience we’ll never forget. Logging on to Twitter every morning and seeing the absurd things that happened the night before was always hilarious. From our Third World Baseball Classic piece, to our takedown of the Microsoft Scouting ad, to that time we put beards on all the St. Louis Cardinals, this season was always da besssssssssssss. And we’ll never forget Shirtless Chris Davis.

Episode 13: #MUPWATCH, Mamma Jake, and the Return of Loveglove

Because bad luck means nothing to us, Barbecast 13 is here one day before Halloween. We managed to squeeze four guests into one episode. Our special guest this week is Amanda Rykoff, devoted #MUPWATCHer and baseball writer extraordinaire. You can follow her on the Twitterz @amandarykoff. We talked to her about hilariously long extra inning games, stupid World Series narratives, and Yankee Stadium tickets costing more than your house. E-mails were exciting; LITTLE POOP IS BACK. After Amanda, we introduced THE CHRONICLES OF LOVEGLOVE. It’s the return of the official minor league pitcher of Cespedes Family Barbecue, Indians right-hander Kieran Lovegrove. Kieran is in the same organization that just changed their Double-A affiliate’s team name from the Aeros to the RubberDucks so we obviously asked him about that. If you like happiness, go follow Kieran @Lovegrove19. Instead of baseball talk, you get to hear 15 minutes of us having an emotional breakdown with Jake’s mother after the obstruction extravaganza of Game 3. It’s intense. And finally, TALES FROM LOGDOG with our good friend Lana Berry. As always. Thanks for listening <3

The Dominican Winter League Intro Is Awesome

Today in the Dominican Winter League, the Tigres de Licey faced off against Aguilas. This showdown is the Dominican equivalent of Red Sox vs. Yankees except the game ends before the sun rises the next day. Like most Aguilas games, the game was streamed live online at http://streaming.aguilas.com.do/

Here is the actual video introduction from todays game. The video is exactly how it was broadcast, although I may have added some different music…

FOX would probably run a video of slow motion shots to introduce a broadcast. This shit isn’t FOX.

2013 World Series Drinking Game

We already created a drinking game once this postseason back during the Tigers-A’s ALDS series. We weren’t planning on making another until we realized how necessary it might be for this World Series. Game one was a puke-inducing shitshow of doom and while we hope the Cardinals show up for Game 2, we want to offer you another entertainment option for the rest of the series. Enjoy and drink responsibly.

DRINK ANY TIME…

In-game Cardinals:

  • Pete Kozma derps
  • You realize that Shane Robinson exists
  • You see Tony Larussa
  • You see Tony Cruz
  • You see Tony Hawk
  • Shelby Miller sighting
  • Trevor Rosenthal throws an off-speed pitch
  • Daniel Descalso exhibits “grit”
  • Matt Adams infield hit
  • Matt Adams steal
  • Close up of Matt Adams’ face
  • Albert Pujols hits a home run
  • Adron Chambers bats because the Cardinals have no other good bench options
  • You wonder if Joe Kelly really needs those glasses

Episode 12: How Is That His Sporer?!?

It’s difficult to top last week’s ridiculousness, but Barbecast 12 is here featuring our first ever TWO TIME GUEST Paul Sporer. Unfortunately, Paul’s first episode way back in August was deleted sooooo we had him on again because we like him. We talked to Paul about HIS Tigers, Jim Leyland, the World Series, and I think some other baseball stuff. Another spectacular e-mail segment included questions about Kelly Vs. Avril, ways to improve Cleveland, Chinese Food and postseason songs. Oh, and Big Poop sent in a brilliant short story about his fictional encounter with Jose Fernandez. Then we interviewed my (Jordan’s) roommate Jamie about his dream of being a DH for the rest of his baseball career. Tales from Logdog was messy, but we talked to Lana about the Kanye West proposal among other stuff. Thanks for listening. GO RATE AND REVIEW US ON ITUNES PLEASE. Alright, cool. <3
