    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    Wish i heard him calling the thread, was still probably more diplomatic than Simmons.

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I only caught a few minutes after 7AM which sounded like the worst of it, tough to hear Fred in this shape. Wallach and Rich were in a no win situation, but i think they could have ran interference a bit better than allowing all that dead air and for Fred to ramble. I'm actually somewhat...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    Almost threw my back out while working out listening to the Old Country Buffet training video bit this morning at 7AM. In the top 10 of hardest i've ever laughed at this show, they have had a really nice rebound since they rightfully got called out for the excessive COVID whining a few weeks...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Really enjoyed the "Say Anything" Rewatchables, Judd Apatow was one of the better guests they have on the pod. Beyond painful to hear Bill lamenting that he wanted to hear Fugazi on the soundtrack, not even Chris Ryan could placate him on that blatant transparent attempt to establish some...

    Baseball on Television

    Based on the fact that about 4 different Rays jumped all over him in the scrum, i'm guessing Daubach hit someone with a cheap shot at the bottom of the pile. And my lord the 2000 Devil Rays. What a horrendous product. The uniforms, the stadium, the fans, the lineup. Dave Eiland topping out...

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    Thanks for the link, that was a great read. CHB can still bring the heat when he waxes nostalgic about his days covering the beat. Even when considering the media environment in 1985 , I’m always amazed the Bird bar fight story wasn’t a bigger deal. I’m as big a Larry fan as there is, but...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    Fred doesn’t sound great, yet I’ve found the show to be a lot funnier during quarantine. They seem to have gotten into a rhythm between recycling some of the greatest hits and working in some pretty topical interviews. Fred and Rich riffing on dumb crowds not social distancing and the stupid...

    1985-1986 Celtics video

    The montages they play during some of the Celtic runs during the finals against Houston are the peak of cheesy 80s highlight music, I seriously feel like running through a wall during the stuff they play during games 2 and 4. The late 80s and early 90s had by far the best sports compilation...

    The Chicken Man Cometh

    This is the oft cited narrative, and there is probably a measure of truth to it, but his contact rates and BA barely budged in 87. He still had a better than 2/1 walk to strikeout ratio and still hit freaking .363. You would have expected a measurable trade off in contact if he fundamentally...

    Greatest Redsox (pure) Hitters of all time

    He probably would hover outside the top10 , but Greenwell screamed pure hitter from the moment he arrived. .303 lifetime, good BB/k ratio, and as pretty of a swing as anyone that ever wore the uniform. He seems like one of those guys who if he had come around 20 years later really would have...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I would be completely on board with them extending out ”The Stack” as a longer segment, especially during the winter doldrums when they could easily fit in an hour of material. The Buffett’s Margaritaville coming to Boston stuff yesterday was great. Fred is always at his best when he can just...

    The Ringer

    Russillo's riff on Modine doing the lat pulldowns and how cinematic prison weightlifters don't lift heavy enough to be intimidating had me doubled over in the office. I've seen VQ, but I'm at the point where Rewatchables is must listen even if i haven't seen the movie. One of the best pods out...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I agree with giving them a pass based on the sports calendar, for some of the dog days of summer I wish TSH pretty much gave them carte blanche to do free form and just let them riff on their bread and butter like pop culture and music for 4 hours, you can tell how painful it is for them to try...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I’ve run into Fred on at least 5 separate occasions out at random bars in Boston and he’s been a blast to have a few drinks with. Unpretentious and the best representation of his on air persona. Buying rounds and going on funny rants about old hardcore bands, random 80s baseball players, and...

    Protecting the Shields -- The Nick Cafardo Thread

    Its a lot easier to write "Jim Rice was feared, I was there" and collect a probable six figure paycheck than go through the arduous task of opening up a new browser and looking up pedestrian walk totals on Baseball-reference. Lets not complicate things here. Exit velocity! launch angle...
