Episode 170 - Brien Taylor, the Best That Almost Was

Episode 170 - Brien Taylor, the Best That Almost Was

June 14, 2022

This week we ponder what walk up music is most likely to break a slump: Nickleback or Dolly Parton? We also might have heard the best nick name in college baseball whom also just happens to swing the biggest bat in NCAA history. For our main subject this week, Brien Taylor. His cards were the holy grail for collectors in the early 90’s. Scouts called him the best prospect they’d ever seen. Scott Boras jumped at the chance to get as much money from the Yankees as he could (and did). But a family fight led to the best that almost was bouncing between surgeries, jobs and prison. In Wax Pack Heroes, we open some 1988 Fleer, looking for riches.

Episode 169 - Playing Chicken with Wade Boggs

Episode 169 - Playing Chicken with Wade Boggs

June 7, 2022

Mark and Jeff have to come clean about their Cardinals/Carpenter knowledge plus an early review of the new Rickey Henderson book. Lars Nootbaar had a big week so of course we had to review it as well as remember a current MLB managers acting debut north of the border. Wade Boggs is the main topic of the week, the batting titles, the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, overcoming his fear of horses to ride around Yankee Stadium in 1996 and of course the beer. Wade was everywhere in pop culture in the 80’s and 90’s and we have the receipts! Finally, in Wax Pack Heroes we rip what might be the greatest pack we have ever opened, but who opened it?

Episode 168 - A Numbers Game

Episode 168 - A Numbers Game

May 31, 2022

Last week we talked about some of the crazy similarities between Jeff Bagwell and Frank Thomas, this week we go more in depth with some other Hall of Famers and marvel at how strange baseball can be sometimes as other famous players careers mirror each other. Plus we cringe at some stirrups being worn in college, have a big Lars Nootbaar update, some big debuts from the past and we open a couple of packs of 1990 Upper Deck provided by a listener.

Episode 167 - Tales from the Dugout v25

May 24, 2022

We always have fun doing this pod but this week was extra fun. We look at some crazy consciences between several Hall of Famers. We feel for Brian Jordan trying to say a specific word, confirm that John Rocker is still the same John Rocker and realize that Mark doesn’t like the movie Grease and is wrong about it. Plus naming pitches, baseball players trying to take over the friendly skies and quiches for Quality Starts. Wax Pack Heroes rounds out this crazy episode with some more listener packs!

Episode 166 - We Quit, Just Kidding

May 17, 2022

Alot of crazy baseball history was made last week! Jeff and Mark review it all from combined no-hitters to historic batteries and strikeouts. They also discuss the crazy game Ferris, Cameron and Sloane got to see at Wrigley in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In the main segment we remember the great umpire resignation of 1999 and the strike breakers of 1995. In Wax Pack Heroes the boys open up some 1990 Donruss and relive so great Hall of Famers.

Episode 165 - Get Off My Lawn, MLB Edition

Episode 165 - Get Off My Lawn, MLB Edition

May 10, 2022

Another start, another accolade for ShoTime, but he could use an upgrade when it comes to his walk up music and we have just the thing for him! Plus, just how much would it take to root for your least favorite team? The guys discuss their magic number plus what decade did Gar Finnvold or Ham Patterson play in? 
The main topic this week is the good ol’ days, or atleast according to MLB social media, any era but the present. Jeff gets some things off his chest about baseball social media as he explains how baseball has always been changing and complaining on social media isn’t going to help. Plus, why aren’t home plates made out of marble any more? 
It’s opening week for a new season of Wax Pack Heroes. Who will take the season opener with a pack of 2000 Topps?

Episode 164 - The Complete and Unauthorized History of Get Metsmerized

Episode 164 - The Complete and Unauthorized History of Get Metsmerized

May 3, 2022

Mark and Jeff have some suggestions for who to name the newly minted NL DH of the Year award after, breakdown an important record that was broken last week in Philadelphia and remember a couple of very important debuts that happened May 3rd. Then, the line by line examination of the 1986 Tour de Force that was Get Metsmerized. The boasts, the off-beat and mispronounced words and the missed opportunities in what could have been the greatest stadium rock anthem of all time…if it were any god at all. Finally, the closest ever Wax Pack Heroes edition comes down to the final card, finally.

Episode 163 - Tales from the Dugout v24

April 26, 2022

Alot of baseball wackiness to talk about this week, but first, Miguel Cabrera did something historical last week, so we talked about that as well as nobody missing pitchers hitting so far, several MLB debuts including the anniversary of Mario Mendoza’s first appearance in MLB (you can guess about what he hit). We also cover a play being performed about a past show topic, a Hall of Famer who is directly responsible for both Jeff & Mark’s current paychecks, a millionaire managing a poor baseball team poorly and just which Major Leaguers have appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Plus, some new rules for a new season of Wax Pack Heroes.

Episode 162 - Bugs Raymond

Episode 162 - Bugs Raymond

April 19, 2022

This week we continue our on-going series of MLB pitchers who are a little bit off. Bughouse used to be synonymous being a little off, that’s where Bugs Raymond got his nickname. Bugs was a fan of the booze, but he was a hell of a pitcher too. We also talk about that one time Frank Sinatra managed the Cubs, try to figure out who Ichiro Cano is named after and remember some memorable debuts. We open a couple of packs of 2000 Topps.
