    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    I've found the 39Thirty (the "stretch fit") to be a solid alternative to the '47 Franchise, among other things the color doesn't fade immediately,

    i don't know about more raunchy, but they do spend quite a bit of time on the question of Does Cap Fuck?

    I know why they do it, but Binge Mode's insistence to only reference other series they've covered when making examples in Binge Mode Marvel has some huge "please I'm begging, read any another book" energy

    i dunno, I'm just an ordinary salaried bum, but saying you have to work fifty hours a week before you get OT is messed up.

    All of the plaques he wrote for the top ten players currently not eligible were great.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Spotify is absolutely a big part of it. Gimlet is another podcast company trying to unionize after Spotify acquired them, and iirc I've seen similar complaints about the pace of the negotiations. Sports fan siding with the team over the players? why I never.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    it's a good thing for Simmons then that he's currently negotiating with the Ringer Union which already has suggestions for how the company can do better.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Yeah, the open mic night line is pretty galling considering all the randos in his personal sphere he has platformed on his podcast. Also his tendency to bring in non-Ringer people like Larry Wilmore, Jemele Hill, or Wesley Morris when looking to add a Black voice instead of hiring people and...

    Jake and Jordan have been making podcasts for about as long as there's been a Cespedes Family BBQ, first with the Barbecast and then the still extant Podcast About D3 Baseball.
