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
