Welcome to Barbecast 53! Our special guest (at 16:01) this week is former major league pitcher Glendon Rusch! We talked to Glendon about his journey from being a 17th round pick to pitching in the World Series against the Yankees in the Subway Series. We talked about a ton of fun stuff, including…
- Whether or not he’s the most famous Glendon
- Being a part of a three-team trade that also included BENNY AGBYANI AND ROSS GLOAD OMG
- The 2000 New York Mets
- Dominating the Carolina League in 1995
- His time with the Cubs
- Facing Hall of Famers in the early part of his career
- Why Adam Dunn absolutely dominated him
- …and more!
It was a fantastic conversation, and at the end, Glendon shared some BREAKING NEWZ. After our interview with Rusch (at 57:40), we did our customary B-Ref Battle which included an amazing story about a guy who might as well be named Preliminary Soap. After the B-Ref Battle (at 1:17:39), we called Jake’s mom when she was in the middle of doing something important. Tales from Logdog with Lana Berry (at 1:18:23) covered Lana’s depression over the Cowboys’ loss and her optimism heading into the Rangers season. We concluded with a brief Varsity Baseball Update and a random discussion about former big leaguer Robb Quinlan. Thanks for listening!
